Hot weather has a way of turning hair damage into a seemingly beautiful ‘sun-kissed’ canvas. Whether your hair is dark or light, it's possible to feel the effects of environmental damage just from prolonged sun exposure. Pair this with your hair’s usual wear and tear, and you have a recipe for compromised hair! While it may sound like sun exposure is hair’s grim reaper, it doesn’t have to be. The truth is, you can have healthy hair in hot weather, but not without a commitment to an OLAPLEX routine. A bond-building treatment and a moisture mask are all your hair needs to live its best life.
Hair health and moisture are two separate concerns that contribute to the integrity of your hair. One cannot pass for healthy without the other, making an OLAPLEX routine essential for the health of your hair. OLAPLEX Nº.3 Hair Perfector and Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask brings a simple routine to haircare, with complex results. Use them with one another, or independently!
Treating with OLAPLEX Nº.3 Hair Perfector
Let’s start off by saying, all hair needs repair. Rather than asking if it needs bonds building, consider how much repair the current state of your hair needs. For healthy hair, treating once weekly maintains optimum health. For color treated to compromised hair, you might consider 2-3x a week depending on how damaged the hair is. If the hair is extremely compromised, treat the hair as often as needed since OLAPLEX is safe to use as often as you’d like.
While your hair will feel soft, look shiny, and healthier than before, it’s important to note that repaired hair doesn’t mean moisturized hair. Nº.3 does not contain any moisturizing properties, as it focuses solely on repairing your hair as strongly as possible. For moisture, the next step is to mask up with OLAPLEX Nº.8.
Moisturizing with OLAPLEX Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask
Nº.8 is a moisture mask like no other, as it rebuilds bonds while intensely moisturizing hair. It’s a 2022 Glamour Beauty Award Winner formulated to moisturize, smooth, add body, and shine. Based on clinical results, it adds 2x shine, 4x moisture, 6x smoothness, with 94% of users seeing more body.
Lack of moisture in the hair eventually leads to damage, as the hair is drier and more brittle. Ensuring you keep your hair moisturized means soft, healthy hair with increased manageability and smoothness.
