Have you heard of oVertone? Maybe you haven’t, but I’m sure you’ve heard of the unicorn hair trend! oVertone is a pigmented conditioner that deposits color into your hair every time you use it — so you can get unicorn hair (or galaxy hair or mermaid hair or whatever your heart desires) without the commitment! The brand carries eight colors (all vivid) that each come in three levels: Pastel, Vibrant and Extreme. This is a game-changing discovery for a lot of people who are looking to create and maintain these looks!

These are conditioners, not dyes, but their staying power is equivalent to a semi-permanent. If you stop washing with oVertone, the color will gradually fade out. And some colors fade easier than others. The conditioners are also vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, ammonia-free and paraben-free. While the conditioner rinses out, the pigment is meant to deposit and stay in hair longer. My friend Brittany tried the Vibrant Pink Deep Treatment. I am so obsessed with her results! Check them out below.

Would you try oVertone to get unicorn hair? Comment below with what shades you would like to try!
Sure, my hair is naturally black (I’m half Filipina), but that doesn’t mean I haven’t dreamed of lighter locks. Back in the day, if you want to lift your hair color several shades, it used to take multiple appointments at a salon depending on how many levels lighter you wanted to go. What if now, you could lighten it dramatically in just ONE visit, with less damage to your hair than ever before? Now you can, thanks to a highly buzzed about product line, Olaplex.
My natural color – BEFORE
This legendary treatment promises to rebuild broken hair bonds. Just looking at the before and after photos on the Olaplex website is convincing. The fact that it protects your hair from the dangers of chemical processing makes this product a game-changer! It dramatically reduces breakage and makes color last longer.
I first heard about it a year ago when my hairstylist cousin, Anjo, insisted that if I go lighter, I HAD to use Olaplex. He said I would need it, because it would be harder to lift my color since I had been using boxed black dye to cover my grays. He even grabbed my iphone, created a new note, and wrote OLAPLEX in all caps so I wouldn’t forget. Since then, I’ve been dying to try it – and when PUREBEAUTY (Aruj Salon & Spa) at the Dadeland Mall in Miami offered me a complimentary hair treatment in exchange for a review, I jumped at the chance.
The Olaplex system claims to permanently rebuild disulfide hair bonds, which give our hair elasticity and strength. The hair products are so unique, the company has secured 8 patents!
Christina at the salon took great care of me, and explained how the system worked. She also listened to my desires – I showed her a picture of the color that I hoped to achieve, and she said she could do it!
Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector – I’ve been using it once a week since then, and I’ve felt that my hair was not frizzy and flyaway like it used to be when I would get it lightened without Olaplex. So that’s already one benefit!
Does Olaplex live up to the hype? I really think so – when I saw my “after” hair, I was impressed with the color. But even more, I was impressed with how my hair felt stronger and smoother, even the weeks after when I would wash it and style it at home.

Many thanks to PUREBEAUTY for providing this experience to me, and especially to Christina for making me feel beautiful!
Opinions are always my own. I was provided this complimentary experience for review, but just because it was free doesn’t mean I will lie to you about what I think – y’all know I KEEP IT REAL.
This is the look I have in my profile photo! It was my job’s fundraising gala, a black tie event, so I went all-out with hair and makeup.
