How To Use Olaplex No. 3

Olaplex, the 3-part hair perfecter that has been taking the world by storm, is your damaged hair’s saving grace. By repairing broken bonds that occur during colouring and preventing breakage, Olaplex will help maintain the strength and structure of your hair and leave it looking shiny and soft.

Olaplex No. 1 and 2 are applied in the salon as part of the hair colouring (or bleaching) process, but Olaplex No. 3 is made for take home use. Yes, now you can keep up the amazing transformation at home and protect your hair from further damage due to curling irons and straighteners.

So, how does it work?

Well, first of all you don’t have to have had a No. 1 or 2 treatment in order to use it. In fact, you don’t even have to have coloured hair. If your hair is damaged from perming, relaxing, straightening or just overuse of heated styling tools, Olaplex No. 3 will still repair the broken bonds and return your hair to its natural state.

What DAY (or days) is your No.3 treatment DAY? ?????????‍♂️? If you're anything like us, Sundays may consist of Olaplex No.3 smothered all over your hair, a face mask, snacks, and skimming through the channels. ??✨ However you do it— Here's how to get the MOST out of your No.3 treatment: Note: If build-up is present such as oils, silicones, or too much product, give the hair a light shampoo and towel dry thoroughly and proceed with applying the No.3. ? Step 1: Apply a generous amount to towel-dried hair and comb through. Step 2: Leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes. Keep in mind, the longer it’s on, the more effective it is, especially for hair that is compromised. We’ve seen great results from people who leave it on 30 to 90 minutes! Step 3: Rinse, shampoo, condition then style as usual. ❕Remember, this is NOT a conditioning treatment. Olaplex strengthens the hair internally, making it healthier than before but it does not address moisture. If dryness is an issue for you, be sure to follow with your favorite moisture mask. ❤ [Photo: @the_whitneystory] #treatyourself #spaday #healhyhair #no3 #hairgoals

To use, simply shampoo and towel dry your hair. Apply a small amount of the product to your hair, working from the roots to the ends, and comb through one time. Then, leave the product on your hair for 10 to 15 minutes. After that time, you can then shampoo it out and condition as usual.

Because Olaplex No. 3 is a perfecting treatment however, and not a conditioning treatment, it is important not to use it more than once a week. And always shampoo the product out completely with each use.

Olaplex products are free of silicones, sulfates, phthalates and DEA and are never tested on animals.
