OLAPLEX Misconceptions

If you're new to OLAPLEX, chances are you know some misconceptions regarding your favorite products. We've taken a liking to make the most of any situation, including our misconceptions. With every myth, we debunk and illuminate how you can make your hair healthier every step of the way.

These are some of the most common misconceptions and how to rock the truth on your mane:

Misconception: You have to use the entire OLAPLEX line to repair your hair.

A common misconception is believing you need to use the entire OLAPLEX line to receive the benefits of bond building. While using the whole line will help your hair look even better with significantly more repair, you can mix and match products or even exclusively use Nº.3 and still benefit from OLAPLEX's patented chemistry. Some of our favorite combinations are cocktailing Nº.6 and Nº.7 together for effortless healthy hair styling and treating with Nº.0 and Nº.3 for the most intensive at-home bond building treatment.

Misconception: OLAPLEX is a conditioning treatment.

While OLAPLEX now has fabulous conditioning treatments, this misconception derives from our early days when OLAPLEX launched as a line of three comprised of Nº.1, Nº.2, and Nº.3. The first three rebuild bonds only and do not moisturize. Now, OLAPLEX has the holy grail of bond-building moisture masks and treatments like Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask, Nº.6 Leave-in Styling Treatment, and Nº.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner.

Misconception: You can overuse OLAPLEX.

OLAPLEX is safe to use as often as needed. If your hair is highly compromised, or you're simply looking to get it the best it can be, you can treat it daily with Nº.0 and Nº.3 as OLAPLEX is non-toxic and repairs the hair. It is not a protein treatment, so there's no adverse effects from using it often. Our moisture treatments are also safe to use as often as needed.

Misconception: OLAPLEX is only for colored hair.

This is a common misconception derived from the fantastic social media before and afters stylists achieve on their clients from using OLAPLEX. While OLAPLEX is the holy grail of hair, especially when it comes to lightener— it is not exclusively for colored hair! OLAPLEX is for every hair type, whether you've never colored your hair or are a regular salon guest!
