Described as “the gold standard in hair repair”, and still trusted by both customers and professionals, the Olaplex collection of products has grown dramatically since it first launched back in 2014. One of the ranges that has increased is their shampoos, and that’s meant that customers in our stores have started to ask us which shampoo is right for them. That’s why we thought it was time to look at each of them in detail and help you to create your perfect routine.

What makes the Olaplex range so different?

It’s all down to a single molecule: Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate. Free of oils and silicones, it actually relinks the broken bonds found deep within your hair, and reverses the effects of the five forms of damage:

• Colour
• Chemical
• Mechanical
• Environmental
• Lifestyle

This bond-building technology is the reason why Olaplex is a worldwide bestseller, and it’s at the heart of all of their shampoos. Suitable for every hair type and texture, from fine to coiled, the Olaplex system really does transform your hair. So, starting with the original, let’s discover the shampoos that Olaplex promise will repair and restore, and finally answer the question, “Which Olaplex shampoo is right for me?”

Olaplex No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo

This is the original Olaplex shampoo and, for many people, is still their go-to for repairing, restoring and maintaining hair health. The beauty of the No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo is that it is genuinely suitable for all hair types and textures. Whether your hair is coloured or natural, the vegan formula is gentle enough for everyday use, but still guarantees exceptional results.

• Olaplex technology re-links the broken bonds in the hair
• Helps to increase moisture levels and enhance shine
• Colour safe and reverses the five forms of damage

TOP TIP: If you’re a man with a beard, or a man in your life has a beard, use the Olaplex No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo on it while showering. It will help to soften the ends of the hairs and so stop any potential roughness.

How to use Olaplex No.4

Apply a small amount to wet hair, from roots right through to ends, and lather fully before rinsing out. Follow with the Olaplex No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner.

Olaplex No.4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo

This shampoo is designed for blonde, grey or highlighted hair and targets unwanted yellow tones with its concentrated purple pigments. Still containing all of the benefits of the original shampoo, the Olaplex No.4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo leaves your hair three times brighter than other leading purple shampoos, but is still gentle enough to use for regular shampooing.

• The gentle formula contains concentrated purple pigments
• Hair is 3 times brighter than other leading purple shampoos
• Its free-from formula is Vegan and colour safe

TOP TIP: If your hair has product build-up, cleanse it with either the Olaplex No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo or the Olaplex No.4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo before using the Olaplex No.4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo.

How to use Olaplex No.4P

Lather fully into wet hair and leave for 1-3 minutes. For a more intense toning, leave in for up to 5 minutes. Follow with Olaplex No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner.

Olaplex No.4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo

The latest product in the range is the Olaplex No.4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo, which delivers a deep cleanse for your hair. Thanks to its exclusive broad-spectrum clarifying system, this shampoo removes hard water minerals, chlorine, excess oils and product build-up. Along with the patented Olaplex technology, the non-drying formula leaves your hair soft, shiny and vibrant.

• Contains the exclusive Olaplex broad-spectrum clarifying system
• Removes heavy metals, chlorine, excess oils and product build-up
• Re-links broken bonds in the hair, leaving it soft and shiny

TOP TIP: If you’re regularly in the pool, or enjoy swimming in the sea, adding the Olaplex No.4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo into your weekly routine will prevent the build-up of damaging chlorine or mineral salts in your hair.

How to use Olaplex No.4C

Apply to wet hair, concentrating on the scalp, and work through to ends. Lather fully and, after 5 minutes, rinse out. Follow with Olaplex No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner.
