This is not a drill. You can now buy Olaplex Shampoo and Conditioner to use at home. The once elusive salon-only three-step treatment has now added a fourth and fifth step to their lineup, and you bet we’re excited!
Okay, so we know this might be old news for some of you who live and breathe Olaplex. But for the ones that haven’t tried the holy grail product - can we get a amen for the Hair Perfector - it’s basically rescued every blonde we know and turned their hair into a silky smooth vision of perfection. Also, don’t worry - our blonde sisters aren’t having all the fun, these products are for every hair colour.
The simple explanation about the hype around Olaplex is that it repairs your hair - and it does it really well. But we thought we’d answer a few questions you might have about the range.
What’s so good about Olaplex anyway
For those who are already worshipping at the Olaplex alter, you’ll know that the No. 3 Hair Perfector is THE hair treatment for those of us who don’t sport our natural hair colour all-year round. It serves as a maintenance treatment to strengthen hair after a chemical service - that bleach and hair dye might get you the perfect colour but they aren’t your friends, ladies.
Basically the whole process is meant to help maintain the bond structure of your hair, which becomes SO damaged during the dying process (and it can also happen through thermal and mechanical styling). Keeping your bonds intact and happy means means less breakage, shinier hair and longer lasting colour - which is every gal’s dream, right?
All you need to do it apply a coin sized amount through your hair from roots to ends after you’ve washed your hair and leave it in for 10 minutes once a week. Technically, the longer you leave it, the more effective it is... so grab a glass of wine and watch some Netflix for maximum results.
Do we really need the shampoo & conditioner as well?
Short answer: yes. If you weren’t already convinced by how good this range is for your hair, the new Olaplex Bond Maintenance No. 4 Shampoo and No. 5 Conditioner were literally designed to go hand-in-hand with the No. 3. The shampoo restores internal strength and moisture levels while the conditioner restores, repairs and hydrates - all without adding extra weight.
Not to mention it’s also vegan as well as sulfate and paraben-free! Imagine running your fingers through your hair and not hitting any knots or see any hair breakage… It’s the dream.
So, with every coloured hair girl’s best interest at heart - why wouldn’t you add these to your cart?
I’m sold - where can I buy it?
