Olaplex Loves Blondes (Summer Edition)

Hey there Lovely!

Tonight we are unboxing and reviewing Olaplex Loves Blondes which is their special summer edition package!

There are three different types of Olaplex but the only one available for purchase to use at home is the No. 3 Hair Perfector and it is the product included in the Olaplex Loves Blondes kit, so therefore it’s the one out of the three I will be mostly focusing on.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Olaplex it has been dubbed the Miracle Treatment for your hair!

Now, the product istself is a complete science on it’s own, but I will try to explain it so that as many people as possible kind of understand  how it works

Olaplex basically goes in your hair and finds broken sulfur bonds and repairs them. The sulfur bonds in your hair are broken by heat styling and chemical  treatments (such as dying or bleaching your hair).

Apart from the fact that it says to repair your hair, Olaplex is completely free of silicone, sulfates and completely cruelty free which gives it two huge thumbs up in my book!

The Olaplex Summer Edition contains two bottles of Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector and two different treatment packages from the brand Malibu C.

Malibu C Blondes This treatment package says to brighten blondes and highlights, restore vibrant colour and infuse your hair with vital moisture. The satchet contains small powderlike crystals that you are supposed to pour into your palm when wet. Then rrub your hands together gently to dissolve the crystals. After that you scrunch it up into your hair and leave in for 5 minutes.

Malibu C Miracle Repair – The second treatment package says to restore strength, shine and volume. It also says to  instantly repairs and detangle your hair. From the instructions you use this as a regular hair treatment. So, following shampooing your hair you apply the Miracle Repair and leave it in your hair for 3-5 minutes. And if your hair is severly damaged you should leave it in for 5-10 minutes covered by a shower cap and gently exposing it to heat.

And now for the most exciting part of all of this! Does Olaplex actually work?

Before this I had only heard of Olaplex and had never actually tried it. My hair is naturally dry and apart from that pretty damaged from bleaching and heat styling way too much.

Therefore I was really excited to actually try it out to see if it would actually make any difference to your hair even after using it only once.

To get the absolute most out of the treatment I was told to use it after shampooing and leaving it on over night and then wash it out in the morning and making sure to condition afterwards.

This is my before and after picture after one round of Olaplex and I can honeslt say that I’m really impressed. In the before and after shot I used exactly the same leave in products and the same way of heat styling.

So for anyone with chemically treated or damaged hair I would definitely recommend you giving Olaplex a shot!

I will definitely continue to use it weekly because my hair hasn’t felt this amazing in a long time. If you’re interested in knowing more about Olaplex, please visit their website.

Thank you so much for reading and let me know if you have any experience using Olaplex and what you think about it!

  1. Great post! I have Olaplex added into my colour at the Salon and use No3 at home once a week – One tip I have is to try it on wet hair (without shampooing) the night before you are due to wash it and sleep with it as you already do! then wash as normal the next day. 🙂

  2. I started using Olaplex around 6 months ago and I do like it, but don’t you find your hair gets a bit limp?? I’m not sure I can really complain since it’s tamed my unruly hair (that and a Keratin treatment)…

    1. I’m actually so used to my hair just being uncontrollable frizz that I really enjoy that sleek feel more. I do however think it depends a lot on your hairs naturals texture, because even when my hair is in “good” shape it’s rough and naturally texturized.
      So I never get that limpness because my hair seems to just be incapable of it. 😜
      In your case I would probably find some good styling products to get some movement in my hair again, perhaps like using a dry shampoo for volume? 😊😊
      In any case, thank you so so much for reading and commenting! 💕
