Tips for Healthy Labor Day Weekend Hair

You work too hard not to celebrate your achievements. This labor day is all about preparing for a day of fun and leisure, starting with some mandatory self-care. As this three-day weekend calls for BBQs, beach days, and outdoor festivities, fun times aren’t so fun for your hair. The sun leads to environmental damage in the hair, resulting in broken bonds. Before the weekend begins, set your hair on the right path by boosting its integrity with OLAPLEX. 

 

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO PRE-TREAT THE HAIR

 

OLAPLEX Nº.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo

OLAPLEX Nº.0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment

OLAPLEX Nº.3 Hair Perfector 

 

Dampen clean hair with Nº.0, combing through to saturate, leave on for ten minutes. After ten minutes, apply Nº.3 throughout the hair, comb through to saturate, and leave for an additional ten-minute minimum. This is where the customizing comes in. Greater benefits result in leaving the treatment on longer. If you have compromised hair or know you’re going to put it through the ringer this weekend, leave it on for however long you like. We’ve noticed the sweet spot to be 30-60 minutes! When complete, wash out with Nº.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo to increase manageability, cleanse, and further rebuild the hair. If you usually condition, use Nº.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner to smooth, soften, and moisturize the hair. 

 

If you choose a back-to-back treatment session, opt to apply Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask after shampooing out the Intensive treatment. This moisturizes the hair intensely while rebuilding it further. The Nº.0 and Nº.3 are so concentrated and intense that their only focus is to rebuild hair. This said––they do not moisturize. Summertime is known for dry hair, so as we pool dive into the last month of summer, let’s give it all the moisture it needs to recover and thrive. Rinse out and style as you usually would. 

 

 

POST TREATMENT PERKS

 

Before styling, cocktail OLAPLEX Nº.6 Bond Smoother and Nº.7 Bonding Oil to continue the repair while you party! The combined benefits of the two products include moisture, shine, reduced frizz for up to 72 hours, protection from heat up to 450ºF, and increased manageability. 

 

OLAPLEX benefits all hair types from straight to curly and virgin to color-treated or compromised.

 

OUTDOOR HAIR BEST PRACTICES

 

Wear a hat to protect your scalp and hair from UV damage. 

 

Avoid heat, and opt for natural styling to keep the damage to your hair to a minimum. 

 

Bring Nº.7 along for any bond building, or shine touchups throughout the day.
