While numerical order suggests Nº.6 goes on first, your base is going to be Nº.9! Nº.9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum is a weightless antioxidant serum that acts as a daily shield against pollutants while neutralizing free radicals on all hair types. Summer is one of the harshest seasons for your hair, with water activities that strip your hair of their natural oils and color. Environmental damage isn’t limited to fading and dryness, pollutants also create build up in the hair that create barriers where products and color cannot penetrate. Apply a small amount of Nº.9, depending on your hair type and texture from mids to ends to protect the hair from damage.


Nº.6 Bond Smoother pairs with Nº.7 Bonding Oil for the ultimate in frizz-free, shiny, healthy, moisturized styling. While you can use these step by step in application, a pro tip is to cocktail them together in your hands for effortless styling. Nº.6 is a leave-in styling cream that reduces frizz for up to 72 hours, while moisturizing and smoothing without compromising your hair’s texture. Nº.7 Bonding Oil protects the hair from heat up to 450ºF while dramatically increasing shine, softness, and color vibrancy. When these two products are used together, they provide double the bond building and benefits. As with the directions for Nº.9, apply a small amount to the hands, starting with a dime size and build up from there, depending on your hair’s texture. Apply the products from roots to ends.


Using the trio as a holistic system means no matter the season, your hair is protected, treated, and maintained. Hair protection isn’t limited to harsh weather seasons. Damage occurs year round, and the more proactive you are with your styling routine, the less reactive you’ll have to be to repair.


OLAPLEX isn’t a magic wand. Damage can occur at any time depending on your exposure to the elements and hair care routine. With this trio, you put up your strongest defense to mitigate the damage that is already occurring, leaving you with healthier, shinier, strengthened hair.
