Olaplex’s No. 7 Bonding Oil Adds Shine and Vibrancy to my Brittle Hair — Review


Consistency-wise, this oil is very lightweight; however, it’s still incredibly nourishing so it’s ideal for many hair types — including both fine and coarse. I love that it’s yet to weigh my hair down or make it look greasy, which is something I’ve experienced with countless other oils on the market. Oh, and have I mentioned it smells sublime? I can’t put my finger on the exact scent, but it’s subtly fruity and tropical, without being too overpowering or sweet.

As for how I use it, well, I either run a few drops through my hair when it’s wet or damp to help reduce breakage and improve manageability, or I add a dime-sized dollop to my hair when it’s dry and looking frizzier than usual. Sometimes I do both for maximum hydration and protection against the #elements (i.e. weather, styling, brushing, etc.).

I don’t use much heat on my hair since it’s so fragile, but if you’re someone who uses a blow-dryer or flatiron every day, I highly recommend this oil as it provides thermal protection up to 450° Fahrenheit. Additionally, it’s a solid treatment to have in your toolkit if you’re someone who colors their hair often, or if you’re trying to grow your hair out.

You can shop it now for $28 on sephora.com.
