There are deals on Bioderma, Vichy, and LRP. For hair, I'm also getting Olaplex.

Thank you to other posters who have actually shared Prime Day products. Some of us come here for skincare tips and not to be subjected to the unsolicited political views of others.

My hair looked just like this when I was a kid, I feel this picture in my very bones. Her hair looks pretty similar to mine, so based on my experience:

  1. The first thing I would recommend is an Olaplex no. 3 treatment. It’s pricey, but you can get it on Amazon, and it’s so worth it. It repairs curl patterns in hair that’s been damaged. Have her wash her hair and while it’s sopping wet, add a literal handful of conditioner. Starting at the ends of her hair, use a wet brush to detangle. It might take a really long time, and handfuls of hair will probably come out. That’s normal. Once her hair is brushed through and detangled, rinse out all of the conditioner. Turn off the water. Brush gobs of olaplex from root to ends, and leave it in for at least ten minutes. It looks like she might want to leave it in for 30-45 minutes.

  2. Rinse out all of the olaplex. Apply another handful of conditioner, brush it through, rinse it about half way out. While in the shower, she should flip her head over and gently scrunch the water out.

  3. LA Looks Extreme Sports Gel is bright blue and you can usually find it at Walmart for super cheap, but I linked it to Amazon below because you can buy in bulk. Flip hair over, scrunch in golf ball sized amount of gel. Repeat. It will seem like an outrageous amount of gel. Use more.

  4. Using a microfiber towel or turbi-twist, or an old T-shirt, plop her hair up for about twenty minutes. The key here is not to stretch her hair out into the twisty part of the towel. You want the hair stay as close to her scalp as possible. Basically lay out the towel and flip head over, slowly lowering the curls onto it so that they coil close to the root.

  5. After about 20 minutes, remove towel, and let her hair air dry the rest of the way. It will be really tempting, but try not to touch it at all. When her whole head is dry and crunchy from the gel, flip hair upside down and gently scrunch-out-the-crunch. Done. Leave it for a few days.

    Hope this helps!

    Edit: to be clear, olaplex is a one time treatment. Do it once. The rest of it is do all of the time stuff.

I really love the Olaplex No 3 Hair Perfector. It is a deep conditioning treatment that's put in BEFORE shampooing. Your hair will be as soft as silk. They recommend using 1 or 2 times a week, depending on how damaged the hair is. I frequently have mine bleached/highlighted and I use it once a week, leaving it in 5-10 min before shampooing out.

You can get it from Amazon but I noticed a few months ago that Sephora started selling small bottles up near the checkout area.

I’ve been using the Olaplex at-home treatment, and it seems to be improving the texture of my hair (dry/frizzy/dyed). It’s not quite as magical as the hype says, but my hair does feel smoother.

u/sthutton · 4 pointsr/FeminineNotFeminist

Ooooh fun topic! Hair background: I'm not sure if I have thick hair, or just a lot of it, but the volume is not lacking! It's got a mind of its own as far as texture - sometimes more wavy, sometimes more straight, sometimes even straight up curly. Length - mid-back to low-back, depending on whether I needed a big chunk of dead ends chopped off. Dyed religiously because prematurely gray is not my style. :'( Because of this dying, my hair is crazy dry. And I live in a really humid climate.


  • Olaplex No. 3 - I use this pre-shampoo/condition about twice a month. Truly a hair saver. If I could only own a single hair product, it would be this! Makes my "hay" hair soft again, and tones down the tangles.
  • Oribe Royal Blowout - this is a heat styling spray that I use if I'm going to blow dry or use heat styling. Smells amazeballs!
  • Oribe Anti-Humidity spray - To be honest, I don't know how much this helps, but it makes me feel better about walking out into 90% humidity after I just finished styling my hair. Also, smells amazeballs. :)
  • Deva Curl Low Poo - One of the shampoos I alternate between. I don't use it for the curls/waves so much as I do for the gentle formula and softness it brings out in my hair. Does NOT smell amazeballs, haha.
  • ION Purify shampoo - This is the other shampoo I alternate between. We have extremely hard water (I've also gotten a shower head filter, but still hard) and the build up needs washed out. Supposed to be good for after swimming in chlorine too. My hair feels weird after rinsing it out, like it's dying for the conditioner, but feels SUPER soft after conditioning and drying.
  • Deva Curl Conditioner - One of the many conditioners I alternate between. This is one that I usually use after the Deva Curl shampoo. Smells weird, but softer hair, so I tolerate it.
  • Argan Conditioning Mask - Another conditioner I alternate with. I use the heavy duty conditioners/masks once a week because of the dry texture of my hair. This one is a holy grail hair mask! Smells soooooo good and hair is like silk...or as close as it can get after dying every 6-8 weeks for over 7 years!
  • It's a 10 Hair Mask - I definitely like this hair mask, just not as much as the Argan one. Smells great - nicely conditions.
  • Oribe Glaze - I use this halfway between my hair colorings. It's supposed to help bring the shine back like right after you get your hair dyed. I don't like how it makes my scalp feel after using it...kinda greasy/build-up-y feeling, so that's why I use it so sparingly. Plus it is heavily perfumed, and while I like it, I have eczema so I'm cautious about what washes down my body in the shower.

    Editing to add things I forgot: I use a special microfiber towel for drying my hair (cause it's supposed to help with frizz), then I air dry the rest of the way 99% of the time. I will use a straightener or curling iron periodically, but actually want to start using those more often. There's only so much pretty you can get without heat styling.

    I sleep on a satin pillow case because that's supposed to help with frizz and breakage.

Olaplex no. 3 if you have some cash to burn. It's usually given to clients after a bleach treatment. I bleach at home, and use it like I would if I were in a salon. Olaplex is new and (through some science and magic) really helps blondes keep their hair strong.

If you want a cheaper option (which still excellent) get a protein or ion treatment to throw on as a last step. I've used this brand because they're really cheap and I get two uses out of one package. This always makes my hair bouncy and strong again after a treatment.

u/BraenMadder · 3 pointsr/longhair

Have you tried Olaplex? Or oils like coconut oil?

Here’s a link for the Olaplex. I think that could really help you. It’s a little expensive but that’s because it works.

u/wildusername · 2 pointsr/FancyFollicles

Not the person who commented but as a fellow chameleon I totally recommend Olaplex - it used to be a salon-only product but they've released Olaplex 3 as a D2C product and it's fucking incredible. I lost about 6 inches of hair last month after a nasty chemical haircut (I went from pink to orange and then back to green, it was too much haha) and this shit has brought my fancy follicles back to life!
I'm in NZ but if you're US-based you can get it on Amazon here.
Good luck!

u/mightymollyn7 · 2 pointsr/Hair

I would use this site to find a salon in your area that has olaplex. The cheapest price it should be for the service is $30 with out blow drying or styling. If you don't have a salon near you carrying olaplex i would go into the salon appointment with coconut oil in your hair, I personally use it before bleaching and have seen that it damages my hair less. You can also buy olaplex on amazon for $26 but it is used for after bleaching like a leave in conditioner. Since your hair is dark brown, the hair dresser may have to bleach your hair in several sessions to maintain the integrity of you hair. This may leave your hair an orangey shade until your next bleaching session. It will probably cost you around $300 or more if you want silver hair that will turn out healthy and shiny. You can always diy silver hair at home but it may leave your hair damaged and the color may look dull.
Edit: you should also try leaving coconut oil in your hair as a mask once a week to help repair it and keep it shiny.

Olaplex is a miracle product!! If you color yourself, you can use Olaplex No.1 mixed in with your bleach, color, or toners. Then there are rinse products they have (Olaplex No.2) for after the color is processed. Essentially, it's a bond multiplier- which helps protect your hair during/after the coloring to limit the damage that's done by processing.
Personally, I don't mess with Olaplex No.1 or 2 at home just because I get my color done at a salon. BUTTT- I would say if you're interested in trying the product you can start with Olaplex No.3, which is an at home treatment off of Amazon
I am not a stylist myself, but my roommate is and she's the reason I'm able to have blond, curly, and long-ish (getting there thanks to Olaplex) hair. I also second R&B as an additional conditioning product :)

u/maleneedshairadvice · 1 pointr/FancyFollicles

Is this also true for articles like these? I mean, I believe you but it looks pretty official to me.

u/_PinkPirate · 1 pointr/BodyDysmorphia

So for dry hair you should def use nourishing shampoo and conditioner and a conditioning treatment (Olaplex) at least once per week. After shampooing squeeze the water out of your hair and apply conditioner over most of your head (not roots). Leave it on for a few minutes to soak up the conditioner. Then rinse. Finish with a blast of cold water on your scalp.

Not sure if you let it air dry or blow dry. If air dry, spray a treatment on (like It’s a 10 or All Eyes on Me and then an air dry cream.

If blow dry, spray on a heat protectant spray. Then blow dry, then apply hair oil to the ends.
