PUREPLEX | Hair Repair System Review

I'm really starting to feel the withdrawal symptoms from not being at the hairdressers now. I've done what I can to try and reduce the heat and look after my hair while being away from getting a trim and conditioning treatments when I get highlights since the start of March. I decided to try out the Knight and Wilson PUREPLEX Revolutionary Hair Repair System to give my hair a bit of a boost and help repair any damage.

The PUREPLEX hair repair system is an at home treatment that features Aminofix repair and protect bond reconstructing technology that helps repair damage from heat, chemicals, styling, colouring and bleaching. So basically anything and everything bad for your hair. This system of products help rebuild the structure of your hair, restore strength and elasticity, increase volume and protect against future breakage. All sounds good and worth trying out with potentially another 2 months to wait until a visit to the hairdressers.

It came in four parts - a clarifying shampoo, a bond protecting treatment, a bond reconstructing treatment and a conditioner to finish off the process. There was a lot of instructions to read through and it felt like I did a lot of in the shower, out the shower, wait 15 minutes, wait 2 minutes, towel dry and towel dry again. It's definitely a treatment to do on a pamper night when you've got lots of time on your hands.

Starting off with the shampoo, I really liked this. It's a clarifying shampoo which prepares the hair for the next stage and removes any product build up. Because it's in a sachet it's a little harder to make it last but even with my medium to long hair I only used about half of the 30ml. If this was sold as a product on its own I'd definitely use it. This was by far the easiest part of the process. After this I got out of the shower and towel dried my hair before moving on to part 2.

Part 2 is a bond protecting treatment. This is about creating the perfect environment for the next part. This comes in packaging very similar to a box dye and it was quite easy to apply it all over my hair and massage it through. This gets left for 5 minutes before applying the next product and you don't rinse this off. This 5 minute wait was perfect for sticking on the kettle and getting my snacks ready for part three. 

Next up was the Bond Reconstructing Treatment. This is a cream product that you massage evenly through your hair and leave it for 15 minutes. This treatment has Aminofix to replace the lost amino acids in your hair sequence and so rebuilding the hair's keratin structure. This is obviously where the treatment really gets to work. I wasn't keen on the scent of this product but once it was on my hair I didn't notice it too much. After 15 minutes (and a cup of tea and Lidl Brownie) this was rinsed off and towel dried. 

The last step is a conditioner which again has Aminofix. This nourishes and hydrates your hair leaving it smooth and strengthened after being rinsed off. Again this came in a sachet and I used about half. This also didn't smell very nice, maybe it's the Aminofix. After the process I blow-dried my hair which is something I don't do often! My hair definitely felt and looked smoother. It styled better the next morning and felt healthier and refreshed.

I bought it on an introductory offer when it came out in October so paid £7.78 rather than £12.99. Yes, I've had it sitting in my dressing room that long. I'd definitely manage to get two full treatments out of the products, if not three so it's worth the money. It's a good treatment if you've got heat damaged hair but would also be good for anyone looking to grow  their hair. Definitely recommend it
