Olaplex has amassed a loyal following because of its seemingly magical ability to smooth, soften, and strengthen damaged hair. But at $30 for 3.3 ounces, it’s not the most budget-friendly product on the market. Not to worry, though, because TikTok clued us into an easy, inexpensive hack to DIY our own Olaplex at home.
The DIY Olaplex recipe calls for just two ingredients: water and flaxseed, boiled down to create a gel that can be applied to hair. Flaxseed is jam-packed with omega fatty acids and vitamin E, both of which are incredibly nourishing. For the Poosh touch, we added a few drops of Inala Power Potion because it contains rice water—one of our favorite ingredients for strengthening hair and promoting hair growth. Get the recipe below.
