With the Summer Solstice bringing us the longest day of the year today, our hair gets a crash course in how much damage a long day out in the sun can bring. While this day is the first of many celebrating summer vacation, activities, and beyond, it’s also the most damaging season for hair. Increased exposure to the sun, water, and chemicals creates an amalgamation of environmental, chemical, and mechanical damage that can be avoided. With the launch of OLAPLEX Nº.9 and Nº.4C, this summer could be your healthiest, most protected yet.
A ritual to get you started on the first day of summer is a treatment and styling prescription to kick-start your hair for the fun it’s going to have. Treatments are a fabulous way to keep your hair in shape with constant repair, however, maintaining your hair in between treatments is vital to ensuring your hair is in a constant state of repair and thus health. For best results, use a clarifying shampoo prior to your treatments to help penetrate to the best of its ability.
OLAPLEX Nº.0 and Nº.3
Start on clean hair. A great option is to clarify with OLAPLEX N°.4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo prior.
Dampen hair with OLAPLEX Nº.0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment. Comb through to ensure complete saturation, then let sit for 10 minutes.
Apply our best-selling OLAPLEX Nº.3 Hair Perfector, comb through to ensure complete saturation, then let sit for an additional minimum of 10 minutes.
Once complete, shampoo out with OLAPLEX Nº.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo, then move on to the moisture mask.
Towel dry until hair is damp, not dripping.
Apply Nº.8 throughout the hair, combing through to ensure complete saturation. You want to ensure every single strand is touched by OLAPLEX benefits! Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse and style.
Styling and Protection
OLAPLEX Nº.9, Nº.6, and Nº.7
Apply a small amount of OLAPLEX Nº.9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum to damp hair. Nº.9 protects hair from daily damage, acting as a shield from pollution for 48 hours while providing heat protection!
Cocktail OLAPLEX Nº.6 Bond Smoother and Nº.7 Bonding Oil for the ultimate protective styling combination. Perfect for anyone who desires touchable, healthy hair, the combination rebuilds bonds while decreasing frizz for up to 72 hours, protecting from heat up to 450ºF, adding shine, and moisture.
The treatment and moisture mask can be done once a week or more if you have compromised and/or dry hair. The styling and protection routine is ideal anytime you wash your hair! Speaking of washing, our new OLAPLEX Nº.4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo is the latest in healthy hair technology for a deep cleanse that softens, restores, and clarifies. This is ideal for post ocean or pool water to eliminate buildup.
