Known across the globe for their innovative No. 1 Bond Multiplier and No. 2 Bond Perfector in-salon treatments, we’re over the moon to be bringing you the full range of at-home Olaplex formulas. With a concise edit of six game-changing products on offer and a huge cult following, Olaplex is arguably one of the most exciting brands to launch in the last 10 years.
The brand is suitable for all hair types, and places particular emphasis on dry, parched locks that have been compromised by excess heat processing, hair colour and bleach, along with general wear and tear. That being said, you will still achieve incredible results if you’ve never used a styling tool or had your hair professionally coloured.
Olaplex use a patented ingredient called bis-amino diglycol dimaleate, which works to repair disulfide bonds. These bonds are what give your hair its structure, and when they are broken, hair damage occurs.
From coily and curly locks to super-straight strands, Olaplex works in the exact same way on these disulfide bonds – so there’s no hair type it can’t help!
If you’ve ever had an Olaplex treatment in a salon, chances are your hair technician has recommended you pick up a bottle of the game-changing No. 3 Hair Perfector. It’s softening, smoothing and leaves hair feeling light, bouncy and manageable.
A pre-shampoo treatment (not a conditioner), you simply apply this to damp hair from roots to ends, and leave for 10 minutes. Once a week should be enough, but if your hair is crying out for more, you can enjoy using it up to three times a week. The longer you leave it on, the better the result, so why not pop it on before bed, and wash it out with shampoo and conditioner in the morning?
To get the most out of the No. 3 Hair Perfector, you could try the No. 0 Intense Bond Builder. This lightweight fluid acts as a primer to the popular Olaplex No. 3 formula and helps to enhance its efficacy. Simply apply to dry hair and comb through to ensure saturation from root to tip, wait for a minimum of 10 minutes and apply No. 3 straight on top.
If you want to incorporate this fabulous brand into your daily haircare routine, make sure to try the No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner. These caring formulas are sulphate-free and work to help strengthen the disulfide bonds, while promoting shine, health and elasticity, and reducing the look of frizz. They’re both super lightweight, but also hydrating enough to give parched locks a boost of moisture whenever you need it.
When styling hair with heat tools, locks can become dry and distressed. The No. 6 Bond Smoother works to control flyaways and provide a sleek, glossy and glass-like look – and you only need a tiny amount to start noticing the difference! You can use it when styling with tongs, straighteners or hair dryers, or simply use as a leave-in treatment.
The newest product from Olaplex is the No. 7 Bonding Oil, a feather-light but instantly moisturising oil that you can use as an intensive treatment or finishing gloss on either dry or damp locks. Plus, it protects hair against heat up to 450 degrees, making it a great option to add to your styling routine.
