Found in top hair salons and aesthetic Instagram “shelfies,” Olaplex has established itself as an accessible luxury hair care brand that delivers professional-grade results even for its at-home treatments. Take the viral Olpalex No. 3 Hair Repair Perfector, for example. The hashtag #olaplexno3 has 40.4 million views on TikTok, with videos showing the transformations from lackluster locks to luscious strands. With “perfector” in the name and shocking results, we had to make sure it wasn’t too good to be true.
Our nine testers each had different hair types, inclusive of straight, wavy, 3A curly, 3C/4A curly, thick, thin, long, short, dry, oily, color-treated and natural. We each tested the hair mask as often as we saw fit over four weeks — and yes, it left us impressed.
A moisturizing hair mask we love for damaged hair
This treatment leaves hair smoother and shinier thanks to its ability to repair broken bonds in the hair — a difference we noticed after first use.
How Olaplex No. 3 works
Our hair’s structure features millions of disulfide bonds between the proteins that comprise our strands, giving them strength and elasticity. When these bonds are broken, that’s when our hair gets split ends and looks dry, frizzy and damaged. Olaplex No. 3 contains Olaplex’s patented bond-building ingredient, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate, which penetrates the hair and rebuilds those damaged bonds. This results in hair that looks and feels healthier.
