Clarifying Your Nº.4C Questions

Clarifying Your Nº.4C Questions

Summer build-up is no joke. Chances are you’ve already been in the water once this summer, styled your hair with a product, and enjoyed the great outdoors. While summer fun is mandatory in our books, buildup that leads to damage does not have to be! A non-stripping clarifying shampoo is what you need for weekly healthy hair maintenance. Add bond-building to the experience? Well, that’s the power of the new OLAPLEX Nº.4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo.


First, let’s clarify some of your OLAPLEX Nº.4C questions:


Most clarifying shampoos don’t remove heavy metals and pollution. Does Nº.4C remove them?

Yes! When we developed OLAPLEX Nº.4C, we aimed to improve the clarifying shampoo completely, starting with bond building and addressing what no other clarifying shampoos on the market do, like removing heavy metals and pollution!


Does Nº.4C strip the hair?

Unlike most clarifying shampoos on the market, Nº.4C clarifies the hair without stripping it, leaving it feeling straw-like, rough, or dry. Nº.4C removes damaging impurities while leaving the hair touchable, soft, and hydrated.


What build-up does OLAPLEX Nº.4C remove from the hair?

In addition to heavy metals and pollution, Nº.4C also removes oils, product build up, minerals, and chlorine.


Apply Nº.4C to wet hair, concentrating on your scalp, then working through to the ends. Lather fully and leave for up to 5 minutes. Rinse well, and continue with your haircare routine, following with OLAPLEX Nº.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner, OLAPLEX N°.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask, or an OLAPLEX treatment!


Clarifying doesn’t have to be a compromising experience where you trade build up removal for hair that feels dried out and rough. Our patented, non-toxic formula allows Nº.4C to effectively remove build up and impurities without stripping your hair. Build-up can lead to damage and create a barrier for products like OLAPLEX to fully penetrate the hair. Regardless of your lifestyle, clarifying once a week is healthy haircare maintenance to ensure you’re getting the most out of your OLAPLEX products!
