That was until Olaplex came along.

And the styling oil has finally come over to the UK.

Available in cosmetics store Space NK for £26, the oil has been met with dozens of five-star reviews.

‘I’ve been looking for a product like you!!!’ wrote one fan. Amazing and thank goodness - my hair feels and looks smooth and sleek. You need a small amount. This is a great product and reduces the frizz and my hair remains smooth all day. I brought two as I can’t bear to be without it and feared it would sell out!’.

‘Great product not greasy at all,’ wrote another. ‘A little goes a long way. Love that is also a heat protectant.

‘Hair feels soft, nourished and better protected.. does not weigh my fine hair down. Even my hairdresser asked what I had been using as she could see a difference in my hair. Love all of the olaplex range.’

‘I bought this oil as I love all the other Olaplex products and wanted to give it a try,’ commented another.

‘I thought the bottle looked tiny when I got it and imagined it wouldn’t last long but I have found you don’t need to use much at all. My hair feels lovely and smooth and it eliminates most of the frizz I get. I have quite thick wavy hair but it can go very flat if I use heavy products. I will see how long the bottle lasts but so far I really love this oil and would buy it again.’
