We’ll be the first to say that if you have yet to try an Olaplex hair product — you’re missing out. Allure editors can proudly say that we’ve collectively tried and tested every offering from the brand since its inception in 2014. But in case you need some schooling on the brand, Olaplex strives on repairing any damage that has been dine to the hair via coloring, bleaching, or the persistent use of hot tools — things we are probably all guilty of.
The brand’s line works wonders for nourishing dry hair and minimizing concerns like breakage, frizziness, and split ends. Not to mention, these products work for all hair types, so curly hair and finer hair can equally enjoy a luxurious Olaplex hair treatment.
If Olaplex has always been out-of-budget for you, you’re in luck. Black Friday weekend is here and five of the top-selling Olaplex products are on sale. Buckle up and keep reading to find out more about these rare discounts — and get ready for the best hair of your life.
We consider the Olaplex No. 3 Hair Repair Perfector to be the star of the collection. The active ingredient in this hair treatment is bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate, which repairs broken hair to rejuvenate its look and feel of it. Senior commerce writer Angela Trakoshis loves using this treatment before a workout. “I’ll apply it to my dirty hair and slick it back, letting it all marinate in during my sweaty workout,” she says. Once she hits the shower and rinses it away, she immediately notices softer and healthier hair.
There are multiple reasons Olaplex’s No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo is a Best of Beauty winner. It features a bond-boosting formula that handles damage through the brand’s same go-to ingredient: bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate. This works to strengthen hair protein bonds, thus minimizing breakage and flyaways. But don’t be fooled, even if your hair isn’t damaged, this shampoo is still a great pick for healthy-looking hair all the time.
With every great shampoo comes an equally great conditioner, and in this case, it’s the Best of Beauty-winning Olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner. Spiked with the same bond-repairing ingredient mentioned above, this conditioner deeply hydrates and leads to soft, shiny, healthy hair with each use.
Like its predecessors in the Olaplex line, the brand’s No. 7 Bonding Oil is designed to help hair that’s been through it all — heat-styling, hair-coloring, chemical-styling, you name it. Olaplex’s beloved hair oil contains grapeseed oil to infuse damaged hair with much-needed moisture, but its bond-repairing properties come from bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate. This ingredient, which is found in all Olaplex products, works to repair broken disulfide bonds so your hair will feel stronger, healthier, and less prone to damage.
Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother is a leave-in reparative styling cream that eliminates frizz, hydrates, and protects. It promises to strengthen and moisturize, speed up blow-drying time, and control flyaways for up to 72 hours.
The Olaplex No.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask features the same strengthening bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate that is in all of the brand’s products, but this mask features two secret weapons that are actually two skin-care hero ingredients: ceramides and hyaluronic acid.
The former strengthens and maintains your hair’s natural barrier to retain moisture while the latter hydrates your hair by holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water, leaving you with a glossy head of hair that feels as great as it looks.
