Skincare for Haircare, Building A Routine

Thanks to quarantine, many of us are at a place where our skincare routine is solid. You might not need to switch up your skincare, but it’s high time you get your haircare routine straight. Haircare is the new skincare! 

Just like my skin, my hair has needs, and they change depending on the season. After all, hair and skin share the same bonds. Building a haircare routine means building a foundation for the longevity and integrity of your hair, especially as we approach one of the harshest seasons yet, summer. Like any skincare routine, your hair care routine begins with the basics: cleansing, moisturizing, protecting, masking, and treating. Here’s the foundation for a haircare routine with OLAPLEX that you can later amplify and customize depending on your hair’s needs:


Once Weekly: Treatment and Mask

This is easy to do on a Sunday or while working from home, in as little as an hour. Just like your skin benefits from weekly face masks, your hair benefits from being healthier and moisturized. 

Intensive Bond Building Treatment Nº.0 and Hair Perfector Nº.3. Nº.0 is your hair’s primer to rebuild bonds and amplify OLAPLEX’s award-winning, best-selling treatment, Nº.3. This treatment rebuilds the bonds in the hair, making it healthier than before. Any hair type from virgin to highly compromised hair benefits from being healthier, just like starting a skincare routine at a young age, only benefits your skin in the long run. The word ‘prevention’ comes to mind. 

Moisture masks are to hair, what moisturizers are to the skin. No matter your hair type, your hair needs moisture. Some textures like curly hair and hair types like color-processed hair need more moisture than others like fine hair. For a back-to-back treatment, use OLAPLEX Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask after shampooing out the Nº.0 & Nº.3 treatment. Bond Intense Moisture Mask offers a surge of moisture, rebuilds bonds, increases body and shine in the hair. 

Hair Washing

Maintain the integrity of your hair by optimizing each wash with bond-building technology. With OLAPLEX Nº.4 and Nº.5 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner, you’re able to rebuild bonds and moisturize the hair every time you wash, strengthening the integrity of your hair. If you co-wash, Nº.5 is ideal for rebuilding the hair while adding moisture and shine. 


Protective Styling

Consider these the more regular products in your haircare routine. OLAPLEX Nº.6 Bond Smoother is a Leave-In Styling Treatment that rebuilds bonds, reduces frizz up to 72 hours, adds moisture and shine. Apply Nº.6 onto damp hair for maximum benefits that work for your hair throughout the day. Nº.7 is like your SPF and moisturizer and the most versatile, easy-to-use daily product in the OLAPLEX line. Nº.7 rebuilds bonds, adds moisture and shine, protects against UV rays, and acts as a heat protectant up to 450ºF. Nº.7 is perfect for touchups throughout the day, especially as the sun beats on the hair. Nº.6 and Nº.7 are also great when cocktailed together! 

A haircare routine is as simple as beginning with a treatment, shampooing and conditioning with Nº.4 and Nº.5 afterwards, then styling with a cocktail of Nº.6 and Nº.7. For touchups until your next wash, use Nº.7 to protect against UV rays, minimize flyaways, and add shine!
