In this blog, we will cover the following topics regarding OLAPLEX:

Q: Can I mix no 3 and the gold bottle oil together?
Answer: No. 3 Hair Perfector is a pre-shampoo reparative treatment designed to repair and strengthen the hair and No. 7 Bonding oil is an out of the shower product that is designed to add shine, hydration and heat protection up to 450 degrees. You can absolutely use them in the same routine, but work best on their own.
Q: I'm a professional makeup artist. What olaplex products are must-haves for my kit?
A: No. 6 Bond Smoother and No. 7 Bonding Oil can be used on wet or dry hair and provide benefits of frizz control, shine, and heat protection for quick styling.
Q: Do any celebrities/celebrity stylists use Olaplex regularly?
At OLAPLEX, we have a team of celebrity stylist ambassadors (Tracey Cunningham, Chad Kenyon, Bianca Hillier, Justin Anderson, Guy Tang, Christin Brown, and Chrissy Rasmusse), and a fan favorite of many celebrities like Billie Eilish and Molly Sims.
Q: How should I prepare my hair before getting it professionally colored/bleached?
A: Using No. 0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment, No. 3 Hair Perfector and No. 8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask in a routine before your salon service will help to strengthen and prepare hair for the chemical service.
Q: How soon before OR after coloring your hair, should you use Olaplex products?
A: OLAPLEX is safe and recommended to be used before and after coloring your hair. OLAPLEX does not affect the coloring process, rather protects and reserves the hair.
Q: How can we tell if our hair is damaged and if Olaplex will be able to help repair it?
A: Daily life damages hair, and we all experience multiple types of damage (split ends, breakage, brittleness, dryness, etc.) on a daily basis from chemical treatments, mechanical damage, heat, environment and pollution. OLAPLEX is designed to treat and repair your hair from the inside out no matter the type or texture.
Q: Which products would be best for textured hair?
OLAPLEX is scientifically proven to repair the hair from the inside out on a molecular level which makes all products great for textured hair. Building a routine with product will be based on desired results.
Q: Can you use Olaplex with hair extensions or on wigs?
A: Yes! OLAPLEX is safe for 100% human hair extensions and wigs!
