Hello guys! Today I have another entry for you from the series of hair guides – Olaplex No. 7, an oil that will provide us with nourishment, regeneration and protection of the ends. Especially when the hair is damaged from styling, dyeing or bleaching.
The OLAPLEX system is an innovative solution to regenerate damaged hair. It quickly revolutionized the hairdressing market and was hailed as one of the most effective products for effective hair restoration after chemical treatments.
As you know, I’ve been testing the Olaplex No.0 and No.3 double regeneration kit myself for the last few weeks and it worked great for me. Today it’s time to review another product in the series, i.e. oil no. 7. If you are interested in how to best use it and what my conditioning treatment looks like and the effects of Olaplex for hair regeneration, please read on.
Olaplex No.7 Bonding Oil, Hair regenerating oil
Olaplex oil is designed for strong and immediate hair regeneration. The product reduces frizz and static, so your hair is fully under control. The oil disciplines the hair, but also extends the durability of the color, renews luminous reflections and provides thermal protection up to 230 degrees Celsius.
Carefully selected active ingredients are the basis of the formula of the rebuilding hair oil. Common corn oil is rich in vitamins, unsaturated fatty acids, beta carotene, and vitamin A provitamin. It influences the proper metabolism of the scalp epidermis. Sunflower seed oil is intended for dry, porous hair. Moringa orifera oil is used in psoriasis, sunburn, it is an antioxidant, so it perfectly regenerates hair. Indian mulberry is a strong antioxidant containing nourishing components. Eclipta Prostata strengthens the bulbs, stimulates growth, and supports UV protection.
The most important, however, is the patented Olaplex component, a modern polymer that finds broken hydrogen sulfide bonds and combines them into disulfide bridges.

How to use Olaplex no.7, my opinion:
As you know, I’ve been testing the Olaplex No.0 and No.3 double regeneration kit myself for the last few weeks and it worked great for me. Today it’s time to review another product in the series, i.e. oil no. 7. It is no longer a liquid or conditioner to use when washing your hair as a deeply rebuilding treatment, but an oil for the ends. She was very curious about this product, the most because it contains the patented Olaplex ingredient and can actually regenerate the ends of the hair, and who does not have damaged hair? Mine still remember lightening and chemical dyeing. So I was hoping that it would finally stop breaking and crumbling, they wouldn’t thin out so much and I wouldn’t have to cut them so often.
I also wanted to test another product from Olaplex, but they all seem similar to me. Masks, conditioners or even a styling cream have a similar composition and effect as treatment no.3. The oil seemed to be the most interesting of the novelties, it is a different product here, and most importantly – we can use it more often than treatments. After each wash, and even daily, as a hair protection. And this is what the Olaplex treatment is all about, it should be used often to maintain the effects, but in a smaller amount. In this case, the oil should be perfect, especially for someone like me who forgets to apply a regenerating hair treatment more often than once or twice a month.
I was almost convinced that I was buying the oil as the best daily supplement to my treatment with conditioner no.3. Meanwhile, I got the oil for testing from the Fryzomania store, so I am very happy that I had the opportunity to thoroughly test it. There are so many fakes of Olaplex on the market that it is very important to buy them from a proven source.
Olaplex no.7, my test and effects:
We buy the oil in a tiny, plastic bottle and I must admit that it does not look like a professional product – unlike the treatments no.3 and 0. The packaging is thin and ordinary, the capacity is small and in the composition (apart from interesting things) we can also find very cheap oils. However, I was hopeful, I already know from many reviews that no one has broken the packaging, and the oil is incredibly efficient, it can last up to a year! Plus, he actually made a difference to many types of damaged hair, which makes me very happy. So I started testing.
Over the last few months, Olaplex no.7 oil several times, as I decided to use it after washing, and I do it 2-3 times a week. The oil surprised me with its amber color and light texture. I’m used to pumps that release a lot of sticky serum, and here we have two drops of light, kind of dry oil. Perhaps the applicator is so efficient, but that’s good, I tend to go overboard.
Oil in the amount of 3 drops cannot be felt on the hair, whether it is wet or dry, and of course it does not weigh it down. As with the use of a hair regenerating duo, the visual effects were immediately visible in the form of smoothing, closing the cuticles, I could feel the wonderful softness and flow of the hair.
After drying and styling, they were slick and straight, slightly covered with a layer of light silicones. It was a noticeable improvement in the condition of the hair, the oil smoothes and gives shine very nicely. It smells beautiful and spreads instantly. My hair is more disciplined after it and it actually helped me reduce frizz.
For several months and washing, I apparently did not use any amount of the product, despite the fact that sometimes too much was poured on my hand, so I can confirm that it is effective. It smoothes hair very nicely, gives it shine, protects against almost everything and is definitely worth the price. I will continue to test them more willingly. I believe that it will also have a long-lasting, great hair regenerating effect. It is a perfect complement to my treatment with Olaplex no.3.
I hope that I helped you at least a little!
I give you a warm hug, Asia.
