My hair was destroyed by OLAPLEX and now I want to share my story in order to save other people from experiencing I had.Let me preface this by explaining that my hair prior to using the OLAPLEX system was long, full and healthy. I have natural blonde, straight hair that has not been highlighted in a year. I air-dry my hair every day and only use high quality products. Because of covid and quarantine, I never have to use heat on my hair. I probably only style my hair with heat once a month. Because I have taken such good care of my hair, it grew a thickened tremendously. I bought the entire line of products at Sephora because I had heard it’s the holy grail for hair health. Though I had never tried OLAPLEX, I trusted the brand because of how highly recommended and used they are by salon professionals all over the world. I used OLAPLEX 0, 3, 4, 5, 6, & carefully followed the instructions. Immediately I noticed that my hair was extremely dry after washing out the conditioner. When using their leave-in conditioner, I had to use a lot of product in order to finger through my hair. As heavy as that product was, it didn’t help my dry hair. After using this system for a week, my hair on the top of my head and surrounding my face all broke off. It started coming out in clumps. I am devastated. My hair has turned dry as straw and has shrunken up to these matted rats nests. It looks like my hair is elastic and sticky. Nothing has helped to fix the damage or return the moisture. The hair around my face that was once down to my chest has broken straight off and now it looks like I have a matted mullet. I know people who use these products and love them. However, I’m finding out that I’m not alone in this. There are a lot of people experiencing the same thing as me. These products need to be removed from Sephora’s shelves. They’re not for everyone and the public needs to know the risks and potential disasters they may face if they use them.

@GG84 First: I hope the cancer scare did end up being just a scare. ❤️ Next: these anti-inflammatory ingredients usually calm my redness down. (Don't know how much of this is readily available in Canada.) Licorice root - it's already in, what, 95% of skincare products? 😂 But you can also get boosters/serums/"ampoules" that feature it in large amounts. I use It's Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector daily now. It contains just 9 ingredients, including the humectant polyglutamic acid. Centella asiatica (cica) - my favorite product is COSRX Pure Fit Cica Serum (contains 7 forms/components of cica plus sodium hyaluronate, glycerin, and panthenol), but I also have lots of cica sheet masks by various brands. CBD oil - my favorite is still Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil , but I also like Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum . CBD oil doesn't work for everyone's inflammation, and I wish there were mini bottles/vials of both these products folks could buy for testing. Then there's the smell... I hate the smell of weed but these 2 oils aren't that bad. The Herbivore oil is stinky for 10 seconds during/after application, and then I can't smell it anymore. Avoid using AHA and BHA on and directly around the red parts of your face. Also avoid using fragranced products on that area, including fragranced makeup. I know everyone's skin is different, but some fragrances make my redness flare like crazy. And of course, products with high amounts of alcohol might cause more inflammation. I hope you can see a derm in the near future. I haven't been able to see mine, either. 😞

It's been happening ever since one of the latest updates @alexalicious. I don't recall if it has been shared with the mods or not. It is odd for sure
