Worth the Hype Wednesday – @olaplex Bond Repair Kit

May 20, 2020

I picked up this @olaplex minis set this past winter because I had heard nothing but good things! While this is no longer available, their Bond Repair Trial Kit ( is.

What they claim:

🔘 Hair Perfector No. 3 –

◻️ A concentrated treatment that strengthens the hair from within, reducing breakage & improving its look & feel

🔘 No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo –

◻️ A highly moisturizing, reparative shampoo that leaves hair easy to manage, shiny, & healthier with each use

🔘 No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner –

◻️ A highly-moisturizing, reparative conditioner that protects & repairs damaged hair, split ends & frizz by re-linking broken bonds

🔘 No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme –

◻️ A leave-in reparative styling cream that eliminates frizz, hydrates & protects all hair types

My experience:

👎🏻 I had to use a lot of No. 3, but I do have long hair, hadn’t washed it in several days and had quite the build-up of dry shampoo.

👍🏻 My hair felt very silky after washing out No. 3.

👍🏻 I’m used to needing to use a lot of shampoo, but because No. 3 had “cleansed” my hair, I needed very little of No. 4 to do the job.

👍🏻 My hair felt clean, but not stripped, after rinsing out No. 4.

👍🏻 As with almost every conditioner I’ve tried, No. 5 left my hair feeling smooth & tangle-free.

– I don’t normally encounter a ton of frizz, but my hair has felt dehydrated. I feel like this entire set played a part in my hair feeling somewhat revived.

My verdict?

I look forward to continuing to test these because so far, so good! I am guessing I will get several more uses out of each bottle, which I greatly appreciate. As soon as they’re all empty, I’ll do a dedicated empties post with my final thoughts.

If you have used the @olaplex system, do you have a favorite product? Do you think they’re worth the price?
