This DIY kit completely transformed my dry, brittle hair in no-time

OK, I get the hype now.

Post-summer hair always needs a little TLC, I think we can all agree. And this year, my hair really did – more than ever.

After a long holiday with plenty of sun, sand, pool dips and saltwater swims, my long hair looked limp, dull and felt drier than it had in a long time.

I tried hair oiling, I switched to a super-gentle shampoo, I used more hair masks than my bank account approved of – but nothing seemed to do the trick.

Until a friend tipped me off about Olaplex’s complete hair repair system – and in desperation, I clicked home the Best of Bond Builders – a kit with four separate products, all designed to treat hair that is dry, brittle and in tatters.

I have to say – I was intrigued. Especially when you consider the hype around Olaplex these past few years.

If you’re yet to be acquainted with it (where have you been?), when Olaplex first launched, its range included two in-salon products (No.1 and No.2), as well as one at-home treatment (No.3).

It has since expanded to make salon-quality hair treatments accessible and available at home.
