I’m the type of person whose hair colour switches with every life change. I can recall siting in Toni & Guy’s colour technician’s chair about half a dozen times in the past couple of years. It’s taken its toll on my hair’s moisture, making it rough and a little crunchy especially in the first month of a colour change. I do take the necessary steps to battle that, like conditioning, treatments, leave-ins, oils, and over time, they do work.. but I had no idea that there were “miracle” products in the market to solve that exact problem until Harold (my colourist at T&G) suggested that I find the local supplier Olaplex.
It took me a little under 5 minutes to get their supplier’s Instagram account thanks to my innovative stalking skills.. from there I got their office number and ordered myself a box of Olaplex’ Traveling Stylist Kit.It cost a bit over 6,000Php which I originally thought was more on the pricey side for what I assumed was a one-time usage sorta deal, but as I read on the box it was “insurance” for my hair, so I guessed this was a a good place to invest.
After getting my hair done, Harold gave me the three bottles back. I was really surprised to see that we didn’t even use an eighth of the bottles’ contents. I seriously haven’t felt my hair this soft since back when it was virgin hair.These are the bottles post-usage. Hardly any less then when I bought them. I feel like I got a license to change colours every couple of weeks! I 100% advise that every hair colour fan gets themselves a pack of this product. The results are in-freaking-sane. If you’re uncomfortable dropping 6k on hair health, I suggest you split with a friend or two. You’ll be able to change colours minimum 4 times.
Two days after colouring, I went to Bataan for my cousin’s wedding.. going to the beach after a colour change is a big, fat no-no. I swam in salt water, I swam in chlorine-filled water.. still no hair damage or breakage. It’s an impressive freak show of hair health.
I still do rub in some leave-in conditioner for safety and although it doesn’t feel necessary, I still suggest you do.. but life after this discovery is incomparable.
