Have you ever pushed off getting a haircut because you wanted to keep your hair long even though your ends are in need of a trim? Has your hairstylist ever complimented you in disbelief over how healthy and damage-free your hair is even though you should have been in for a trim months ago and you use heat styling tools multiple days a week? If you're too familiar with that first scenario and want to experience the second, you need to try Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector. It is nothing short of a miracle worker.

According to the company website, the product "restores damaged and compromised hair by repairing from the inside out with [their] patented single ingredient, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate." That's quite the mouthful, but the part you need to know is that it restores damaged hair. If you want to return your overly processed, damaged hair to its former glory or if you just want to make it look (and feel) better than it ever has, Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector is the one product you need.

Yes, a hair routine with multiple products is great and all, but if you want to save money (and time) to focus on one product, this is it. If you'd like further reassurance before purchasing, just check out some of the reviews below. And if you just want to cut right to the chase without combing through every comment, you just need to know that more than 58K Amazon customers doled out 5-star reviews for this product. Warning: you'll get hair compliments everywhere you go.

Olaplex Hair Perfector No 3 Repairing Treatment

Apply Olaplex No. 3 and let it sit for 10-30 minutes. Pour a nickel-sized amount of the Olaplex No. 3 solution into your hands and massage it into your scalp, just as you would with regular shampoo. Be sure to comb the serum through all of your hair, saturating all of the strands as you go. Let it sit for the required amount of time.

Leave the Olaplex No. 3 in your hair for at least 10-30 minutes. If your hair has recently been dyed or otherwise damaged, consider leaving it in for an hour or two.

You may want to put on a shower cap to keep the serum from touching your clothes or other items in your home while you wait out the clock.

Rinse the treatment out and shampoo your hair. After the allotted amount of time, hop back in the shower and rinse out the Olaplex No. 3 treatment with warm water. Then, shampoo and condition your hair as you normally would.

Once you get out of the shower, your hair should be silky smooth, healthy, and ready to be styled!

One Sephora customer said this was a "miracle product," sharing, "This is a must have if you bleach your hair or are prone to damaged hair. I have been bleaching my hair for eight years and I thought I would have to stop. This product saved my hair. Definitely make sure you leave it in for at least ten minutes so it can really work but it is amazing. It literally brought my hair back to life. It is worth every penny!"

Another gushed,

"This stuff is magic with a noticeable difference from the first application."

"This is a game changer. My hair immediately felt stronger and healthier,"

a Sephora shopper shared.
