Olaplex Bond Maintenance System Kit

We put Olaplex's Bond Maintenance System Kit to the test after receiving a complimentary sample from the brand. Keep reading for our full product review.

For the last few years, any time I've gone in to get my hair colored in a salon, my hair has been graced by the powers of Olaplex from behind the shampoo bowl. I've been aware of all the hype colorists have made about Olaplex products, but I naively assumed it was only something to be mixed into the color bowl. I suppose I knew there were shampoos and conditioners for people to use at home, but I never imagined it could have the same transformative power as the products professionals swear by.

After recently trying their Hair Perfector and Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner on myself, I was left in such disbelief at how much better my hair feltand immediatelythat I had to dig in a little and learn what was responsible for such a promising and effective change to my strands. I also had to text a lot of my friends and family members with colored hair and brittle ends to ask if they've tried the formula for themselves. I found myself opting to pay for people to have it because I was left so convinced that this combined treatment of Olaplex's No. 3, No. 4, and No. 5 was the answer to hair woes that we've all been asking for.

To put it simply, I've become a hardcore convert. And I strongly believe that anyone who isn't using the Olaplex at-home system right now needs to switch over, ASAP. Read on for my full review.
