I have noticed that as I get older, my hair has really changed and not in a good way. I used to have hair that was long, healthier, thick,and able to hold a style. My hair has become more easily damaged, thinner, and has a harder time holding a curl. I also notice alot more dryness. Even though I have been having a healthier diet, drinking more water than ever before, I still have noticed the same problems. I have tried focusing on changing up the products I have been using.
As my hair changes, my products need to change as well. Same thing with skin. When your skin ages and changes you need to have quality skin care products that help support it.
I have recently been adding some haircare products and sticking to a hair care routine that has been a total game changer. They may not have completely changed all the problems of my hair, but it has helped make my hair softer, healthier, and more manageable. I am sharing my tools with you.
The Olaplex system
If you haven’t heard of the Olaplex system, it is a patented system that helps to repair the hair bonds. The hair bonds work to keep hair strong, stable, and gives hair its structure. When the bonds are broken, that causes damage. The system helps to repair the bonds to help fix and prevent damaged hair.
I have been using the system for a couple months now. I typically use the entire system at least once a week. I usually only wash my hair twice a week. First, I start with the No. 0 treatment which I spray on my hair and let it sit for 10 minutes, followed by the No. 3 Hair Perfector which I put on right over the No. 0 treatment and then let that sit for 10 minutes. After the 20 minutes of treatments, I was my hair with No. 4 shampoo and condition with No. 5 conditioner. I follow with the No. 6 smoothing styling creme which I put on whether I style my hair or not. I typically wash my hair at night so I don’t style it until the morning.
I have really noticed a positive effect on my hair! Since using Olaplex, I have healthier hair with far less split ends. My hair is softer and more manageable especially after using the whole routine. Since using the system, I only have to wash my hair twice a week but before that it needed to be washed 3-4x a week due to how greasy and dirty it seemed like it was.
My second washing of the week is sometimes Olaplex or sometimes one of my Virtue shampoos or Moroccan Oil which is new to my repertoire. I will give a review after using a bit more.

Other Products I Am Loving
Kerastase Night Serum: My hairstyle actually told me about this serum and it really works wonders. The night serum is exactly what it is named, to be used at night. I pump one pump into my hands and gently finger through the ends and lengths of the hair. You don’t need to wash it out. This serum has completely transformed the hydration of my hair. It is softer, more manageable, and doesn’t seem to get as knotted and tangled during the day like I have been experiencing. This is a product that will stay in my routine and worth every penny!
Moroccan Oil Leave in Conditioner: As previously stated, I recently started using the Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner but this leave-in conditioner has been one I have been using for a while and love it. I use it after I get out of the shower to help detangle and hydrate my hair. It has done a great job of helping to get rid of those tangles so that I am not putting as much stress and damage during combing. It leaves my hair feeling soft and it smells oh so good!
BestLand Finishing Hair Cream: I found this product on Amazon and it really has been helpful for both updos and when my hair is down. The finishing hair cream looks like a tub of mascara. I typically brush a little on the roots that have pieces that are astray or when I put my hair up to hold down a few of those stray pieces. It has not made my hair oily or greasy despite the products seeming to be an oil consistency.
