Treating our tresses with tender loving care can cause us to burn a hole in our wallets sometimes. After all, we want to slather them in the very best formulas.

One such formula is Olaplex’s Nº.3 Hair Perfector, an at-home treatment that reduces breakage and visibly strengthens hair for silky smooth locks. The downside is that it has a steep price tag for 100ml of product.

For those girlies on a tighter budget, however, we’ve got a great alternative for you. This trending haircare product has been claimed to be an “Olaplex dupe” and only costs less than S$10.

We’ll get into the juicy details of what this product is and what it can do, we want to quickly remind you that dupes are very similar to the original but not 100% perfect. Regardless, they’re affordable alternatives that’ll do just the trick.

This is why the Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Protein Treatment has been trending hard on TikTok.

This TikTok user claims that they tried this product once and had to go back for a second purchase after seeing the stellar results.

Soy protein extract, allantoin, ceramide 3, and pig collagen components in the formula nourish your hair to heal any damage that has occurred during colouring or frequent styling.

On top of that, its formula boasts herbal extracts, hydrolysed milk, and silk amino acids to relieve stress and stimulate the scalp to improve hair elasticity and softness.

The TikTok users who tried this treatment showed us just how smooth and silky their hair looked and felt after continuous use.

However, it doesn’t have a bond repair ingredient like Olaplex, which means that it won’t be as effective as Olaplex when it comes to repairing your hair’s damaged keratin chains.

Despite this shortcoming, Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Protein Treatment is still a treatment that delivers actual results.

Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Protein Treatment retails for S$9.16, available at iHerb.
