Taking care of your crowning glory can be a little heavy on our wallets at times.
Many of us look to Olaplex for hair treatments that are said to work miracles; the brand also offers a variety of products to solve every hair need.
Those on a tighter haircare budget will be happy to know that TikTok has found a great alternative that’s been dubbed as the “Olaplex dupe”. And the best part? It retails for less than RM40!
Before we get into the juicy details of what this product and what it does, here’s a quick reminder that dupes are very similar to the original and users may feel that the results from them are very close, but they may not be 100% identical to the original.
The “Olaplex dupe” that has been trending hard on TikTok is the Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Protein Treatment.
This TikTok user claims that after trying this product once, they decided to make a second purchase because of its effective results.
Take note, however, that this contains pig collagen. Nonetheless, it protects your hair and supply nutrients to heal any damages you may have caused through dyeing or frequent styling.
On top of that, its formula boasts herbal extracts, hydrolysed milk, and silk amino acids to stimulate your scalp and improve hair elasticity.
The TikTok users who have used this treatment showed us how smooth and silky their hair felt after continuous application.
However, it doesn’t have a bond repair ingredient like Olaplex, which means that it may not be as effective as Olaplex when it comes to repairing your hair’s damaged keratin chains.
Despite this short-coming, Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Protein Treatment is still a treatment that TikTokers say offers results that are similar to an Olaplex treatment.
So if you’re looking for an effective hair treatment that is easier on your wallet – and you’re okay with it being formulated with pig’s collagen – check this product out.
Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Protein Treatment retails for RM32.59, available at iHerb.
