OLAPLEX - get to know the products

Updated: Jun 12, 2020

We already talked about how OLAPLEX works. Let's now talk about the complete product line.

A few posts ago, I talked about this amazing product called OLAPLEX. Today I’m going to explain the 7 products OLAPLEX has. Two of them can only be used by professional licensed cosmetologists and the rest of them may be used by the general public.

Sometimes it's hard for me to put into words how much I LOVE OLAPLEX. It has saved my hair MANY times. This is no joke! I will explain why I love it before we jump to the products. That way I might help you understand the love behind these amazing products! You can find more testimonials here.

About three years ago, I started coloring my hair too frequently. I was at home, bored and I couldn’t resist to color or bleach my hair. Even though I knew OLAPLEX existed and how greatly it helps with the hair, I didn’t want to do the trip to the hair store. I started to see the consequences and my hair started to break off. I knew it was time for me to stop and take care of my hair if I wanted it to grow long and healthy.

The first time I did my very first OLAPLEX stand-alone treatment I saw the magic behind it and at that moment I knew I would never ever again do any chemical processes in my hair without it. Will you believe me if I tell you even my husband noticed the shine and softness in my hair? That’s right! Now and then I do stand-alone treatments and I LOVE IT! I maintain my hair bonds healthy by using OLAPLEX No. 3 weekly or if I don’t have time every two weeks. I wash my hair and condition with OLAPLEX No. 4 & No. 5 . Then I use my favorite for styling my hair, OLAPLEX No 6 and No 7. Those last two mixed together are the bomb. Best blowout styling cream ever!!! I use them either for blow drying my hair or to style my curls.

Stand alone treatment

OLAPLEX no 1 & OLAPLEX no 2 Professional use only

This is where the magic happens! The stand-alone treatment is done in the hair salon only by a professional licensed cosmetologist. This treatment can be done any time you wish, you just need to ask your favorite hairstylist.

  • No.1 is the first step on the stand-alone treatment: prevents damage by restoring and repairing the hair bonds. This one is used during chemical services to prevent damage and repair. Make sure to check out this blog post for more info.

  • No.2 is the second step on the stand-alone treatment: it restores any bonds missed by step 1 and after any chemical services.
