I have had a similar experience, however I don’t think the Olaplex is at fault. I wanted to lighten my dark hair to a medium ash brown, and had to lighten it over 3 sessions to try to get the ash colour I wanted. I had hoped that the Olaplex would prevent any major damage. I waited 2 weeks in between each lightening and used/still use the “at home” Olaplex option.** I stopped using Kerastase products and treatments at this time to investigate Olaplex. Its been about 8 months now since i did this and I find my hair getting more dry and brittle over time. I would say the damage is from lightening, not the treatment itself. I increased the frequency of treatments but find they only last 1-2 washes and then my hair is a tangled dry dull mess again. In my opinion the Olaplex may have helped “control” the immediate damage but certainly did not prevent it, and in the long term, the damage is going to become evident. Today, out of frustration and memories of how my hair used to feel before switching to Olaplex, I returned to a salon to get a double boost of Kerastase moisture and strengthening treatments and ..WOW I have my old hair back! 🙂 I know it hasn’t repaired the damage, but at least it is smooth and glossy and so much more full of life! I typically could go about 8 washes before needing another Kerastase treatment so it will be interesting to see how long this lasts, but i can honestly say today I am the happiest I have been with my hair in a very long time! I will be using both Olaplex and Kerastase in the future 🙂
More than 600,000 ground-source heat pumps supply climate control in . homes and other buildings, with new installations occurring at a rate of about 60,000 per year [ 12 ]. While this is significant, it is still only a small fraction of the . heating and cooling market, and several barriers to greater penetration into the market remain. For example, despite their long-term savings, geothermal heat pumps have higher up-front costs. In addition, installing them in existing homes and businesses can be difficult, since it involves digging up areas around a building’s structure. Finally, many heating and cooling installers are simply not familiar with the technology.
My parents purchased a couple of magnetic bars to replace detergent maybe, 30+ years ago in Quartzite Arizona. I have never really understood it, but … my dad said then that the chemistry of it … the reactions of minerals to chemicals … the magnets to the ‘dirt’ … made sense. Mom used them for years … actually, she probably still does … and I have never noticed her clothes to appear faded or smell dirty. I have no idea where to purchase them … actually hadn’t even thought about it for a long time. These were purchased before the days of everyday computers so … I could look that up now! LOL!
