Is Olaplex really that bad?


โ€ƒOlaplex Strong Days Ahead Hair Kit has always done wonders to my hair.. and now Iโ€™m scared to use it based on what Iโ€™m reading. What is your experiences with Olaplex? This is my hair and Iโ€™m finally happy with it after being on a hair recovery journey for 3 years! 

Re: Is Olaplex really that bad?

If itโ€™s working well for you, use it. I used Olaplex for years (both in-salon treatment and at home) and never had any adverse reaction or hair loss. That being said, I never used their shampoo & conditioner, just number 0 & 3 treatment, and styling products (number 9 and the oil, which I still use today).


I have since moved on from Olaplex to K18 and now am about to try the Lโ€™Orรฉal professional molecular repair line. My only reason for switching is that new products come out all the time and I found K18 to be more convenient to use at home (just skip conditioner and use as a leave-in). Iโ€™m hoping the Lโ€™Orรฉal version will be even better since it is never and has a lot of R&D behind it. 

For reference, this is my hair. I hope this helps!
