Unreal beauty steals are definitely our Achilles heel, as we always love hunting for mind blowing- makeup, skin and hair-care products (thanks Amazon!) that won’t have us stealing from our hard-earned vacation funds.
And yes, that definitely includes shampoos, as one blonde-friendly shampoo (under $20!) busts brassiness without burning a hole in your wallet. But now, as noted by Buzzfeed, it seems that there’s a new hair-care superstar in town, as the Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment ($8) has up to 2,000 positive ratings on Amazon.

If you are wondering what the hype behind this product is all about, the $8 price tag is definitely a good place to start, as many protein-infused treatments (we’re looking at you Olaplex) tend to be pricey and start at $20 and up. This makes it a can’t-miss product for anyone trying to save a buck, as it even contains the same amount of product as Olaplex, according to Amazon user Queen Irene. Whoa.
Next, there’s the ingredients, as many users laud the product’s strength-boosting formula made up of soy protein extract, allantoin, ceramide 3 and pig collagen components. Because of this, Amazon user Nancy said the treatment tames frizz, adds luster and softness, without leaving the hair full of greasy residue. Similarly, Amazon user Nicole said it works like a charm on severely damaged dyed blonde hair.
There’s even some Olaplex comparisons up for debate, as some Amazon users think that this Elizavecca product is the perfect dupe for the much-loved Olaplex 3 hair treatment. Amazon user Queen Irene, for example, said that unlike Olaplex, this product left her tresses feeling smooth, and untangled her freshly bleached roots easily. Plus, user Yohana Escoria added that unlike Olaplex 3, this product offers results in just one treatment.
To use Elizavecca-CER-100-Collagen-Coating-Treatment correctly, the brand’s Amazon page suggests leaving it on for 30 to 60 minutes under a cap for best results. This can definitely do wonders for color and chemically-treated hair, as Amazon user Narina A., suggested that it keeps her hair moisturized and silky even through damaging Japanese Silk Magic Straight Perm and Brazilian Keratin treatments.
