Olaplex is generally loved by the curly community since it not only repairs damage but also enhances the natural curl pattern of the hair!

This post looks at the best Olaplex products for curly hair and how to use them!

Olaplex for Curly Hair

If you regularly colour your curls, hair dye can damage your hair texture, curl pattern, and harm the overall health of your hair. Olaplex is a patented system developed to repair, protect, and strengthen damaged hair regardless of its texture or type. The formula is known for its reparative qualities that re-links broken bonds in chemically damaged hair. It helps to reduce frizz, and repair coloured curls or split ends.

The key ingredient in Olaplex’s magic formula is Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate. It repairs disulfide bonds broken during the dying process and rebuilds damaged hair strands. The more damaged your hair is, the bigger the difference you will see when you start using Olaplex products!

Olaplex N°.7 Bonding Oil

Olaplex No 7 is my favourite styling oil. It dramatically increases shine, softness and colour vibrancy and minimises frizz and flyaways. This product also provides UV protection and heat protection of up to 450°F/232°C. Just a small amount will leave you with beautiful, shiny hair.

I first found out about this product from my hair stylist. It contains the bond builder which repairs broken hair bonds and reduces color damage. It’s a great product if you regularly use a flat iron since it not only repairs your hair but also protects it from high temperatures.

Although this product is quite expensive, I found that a little goes a long way so just one bottle can last you up to six months depending on the length of your hair.

Olaplex Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask

Olaplex for Curly Hair

The Bond Intense Moisture Mask is the eighth and newest product in the Olaplex line. If you have been using harsh chemicals or heat treatments on natural hair for a long time, this mask will help to repair the damage. It’s especially recommended for hair that is visibly damaged.

It contains the same bond-building technology as the other Olaplex products in the line, and leaves hair smoother and thicker. If your curls have been flattened from too much styling, this mask can improve your curl formation and definition.

To use the mask simply apply to clean, damp hair and work through with either a wide-tooth comb or your fingers. Leave for ten minutes before rinsing. If you have shoulder length hair, 2 pumps should be enough but for long hair you should use more.
