Protecting Your Hair For Longevity

Protecting Your Hair For Longevity

Protection in haircare is something often overlooked. Why is that? We protect our skin with SPF; we wear a helmet on a bike. The way hair acts as an extension of ourselves can give the illusion that it needs less care than the skin on our face. Protection is vital to ensuring hair eschews damage as much as possible. Although all products in OLAPLEX's line repair broken hair, two of them can be incorporated into your styling routine to rebuild and protect the hair daily.


Styling hair with OLAPLEX Nº.6 and OLAPLEX Nº.7 ensures the hair is being rebuilt to a healthier state and receiving the moisture it needs to stay manageable. Nº.6 is a Leave-In Styling Treatment activated with OLAPLEX's patented formula to rebuild broken bonds in the hair. Simultaneously, it also increases the hair's manageability by reducing flyaways and frizz for up to 72 hours and moisturizing. These benefits are evident as soon as you pop on the leave-in.


Nº.7 Bonding Oil is a protective oil that adds intense shine, rebuilds bonds in the hair, protects against heat up to 450ºF, and protects against UV rays. All these benefits increase the manageability of the hair while adding its integrity. To maximize the experience, cocktail Nº.6, and Nº.7 together to combine all benefits in one style. 


Do I need to style my hair to use Nº.6 and Nº.7?


No, OLAPLEX Nº.6 and Nº.7 are entirely customizable to your lifestyle!


I'm going to be out a lot this summer.


Environmental damage is a sizable factor in how botched hair can get at the end of summer. Protection is key!


What hair type can use Nº.6 and Nº.7?


OLAPLEX is an all-inclusive line, meaning anyone with any hair type can use and benefit from styling the hair with OLAPLEX.


Finally, we have the Nº.6 leave-in! Depending on your hair type or texture, start with a dime-sized amount of Nº.6, then work your way up if needed. A little goes a very long way! This powerful leave-in both rebuilds bonds in the hair and conditions simultaneously, making it the ultimate finish to this reparative and moisturizing treatment. Apply the amount into your palm, then rub it in to saturate your hands with the product. Work through your hair. Style as you usually would.
