Olaplex revolutionized the coloring process three years ago, enabling professional colorists to achieve a greater level of lift without ruining your hair.
Their innovative products were developed to protect the hair during the lightening and coloring process and repair damage caused by excessive bleaching. They were able to restore structurally damaged hair by reconnecting the internal bonds broken during chemical services.
While Olaplex No.1 and No. 2 were only available for salon use by professional hairstylists to prevent hair damage during and after coloring, Olaplex No.3 was accessible to consumers who wanted to improve the condition of their hair and keep the internal bonds strong and resistant to further damage.
Olaplex has recently released two new game-changing hair care products in this line for home use – Olaplex shampoo and conditioner. Their at-home regimen now includes No.3 Hair Perfector, No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo, and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner.
Olaplex Home Bond Maintenance System
Chemical treatments, heat styling, and harsh environmental factors are a constant threat to the health and structural integrity of your hair. Olaplex shampoo and conditioner are both formulated using Olaplex bond-building technology that has been proven to improve the integrity of the damaged and chemically processed hair.
In addition to their hair strengthening capabilities, Olaplex shampoo and conditioner are completely non-toxic products. They are gentle and suitable for all hair types, including colored and chemically treated hair.
No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo
Olaplex No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo is designed to repair and moisturize your hair during shampooing. It claims to be able to relink broken bonds and leave your hair stronger and healthier with every wash.
The Olaplex shampoo has a thick consistency and great spreadability. It creates rich lather despite its lack of sulfate cleansers. You only need to use a pea-sized amount to get your hair clean and nourished.
It also has a pleasantly refreshing citrus smell.
- Mild, sulfate-free surfactants derived from coconuts that leave your hair feeling clean without stripping its essential moisture.

No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner
Olaplex No. 5 Conditioner is a highly-moisturizing hair care product that uses Olaplex bond-building technology to repair damaged hair and prevent future damage.
The conditioner is hard to squeeze out of the bottle due to its super thick consistency, so store the bottle upside down to get the product out easier.
Much like the No. 4 shampoo, this conditioner has a light, citrusy fragrance.
- Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate helps protect and restore damaged hair by repairing broken disulfide bonds.
- A vegetable-derived bio-lipid complex called Phytenso provides long-lasting moisture and color protection.
