Summer Hair Repair
July 23, 2021

Summer Hair Repair

This summer, heat, and waves are no match for your killer mane. Yet, come September, time, and again, many greet the Fall with dry, damaged hair from a carefree summer in the sun and water. Increasingly, thanks to a year at home, self-care aficionados are seeking ways to mitigate damage before it happens, to preserve their pristine quarantine hair. OLAPLEX treatments have intensified the integrity of people’s hair worldwide, and it shows no signs of stopping for summer.

The two major contributors to damage in the summer are excessive sun, salt, and chlorine water. The combination of the two leads to dry, brittle, damaged hair by the end of the season. Without OLAPLEX treatments before, during, and after summer activities, the hair becomes compromised and needs more significant repair. OLAPLEX rebuilds bonds in the hair, creating healthy bonds, which means healthy hair. Although it can do this in one treatment, the more damage your hair has, the more treatments you’ll need to get your hair back into healthy shape. 

When treating the hair regularly with OLAPLEX, the treatment can mitigate damage closer to real time, leaving you with healthy hair under the sun. OLAPLEX Nº.0 and Nº.3 address intense bond-building, while OLAPLEX Nº.8 is a moisture mask. Here’s how to get the most out of each treatment to treat your summer hair damage woes:


Heat Damage

Heat from the sun can cause damage to the hair, like breakage and lightening. To remedy this:

  1. Use OLAPLEX Nº.0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment as a primer for OLAPLEX Nº.3 Hair Perfector.
  2. Dampen the hair with Nº.0, comb through to saturate, then leave on for ten minutes.
  3. Apply Nº.3 directly on top, comb through, and leave on for an additional ten minutes.
  4. Shampoo and condition out with OLAPLEX Nº.4 and Nº.5 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner. 

Pro tip: Leave the treatment longer for more significant results and customize the treatment to fit into your lifestyle. This can be done poolside, at the beach, or while running errands––you’re not limited to your bathroom with OLAPLEX! 


Water Damage & Dryness

OLAPLEX Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask rebuilds bonds while it intensely moisturizes the hair. Salt and chlorine strip the hair of moisture, drying it out, which leads to breakage. To target this concern, you’ll need bond-building and moisture. Although bond-building repairs hair, moisture is a separate issue. OLAPLEX Nº.8 addresses both, adding 4x moisture to the hair plus body and shine. Although this treatment rebuilds bonds with OLAPLEX’s patented technology, the amount of bond-builder in the formula is diluted. For intensive bond building, you still need OLAPLEX Nº.0 and Nº.3.

To apply the treatment, use Nº.8 on damp hair, comb through to saturate, and then leave for ten minutes. Rinse out and style. As with the Intensive Bond Building Treatment, leaving Nº.8 on longer yields even greater results!
