Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, that was equal parts productive and relaxing. We had the most glorious weather yesterday, so we spent most of the day outside. It’s amazing what sunshine can do for your mood and outlook!
Today we’re talking beauty, and it’s a post that’s been highly requested. It’s no secret I’ve been on the Olaplex fan train since I’ve been talking about it on repeat for over a year… in fact, I credit it with repairing my broken hair and restoring shine and strength.
I started with the No. 3 Hair Perfector and was so immediately blown away by the difference, I began introducing new Olaplex products one at a time. It wasn’t long before my entire hair routine was made up of Olaplex products. After all, considering what I spend to get my hair cut and colored, investing in the care and maintenance is worth it!
They recently launched the brand new Olaplex No. 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo, and I couldn’t order it fast enough! And based on the number of questions I’ve received about it, many of you are excited to try it out, too!
This purple shampoo cleanses, tones, and repairs while keeping hair hydrated from roots to ends. I’ve tried a slew of purple shampoos over the years, and none compare in both potency and hair health to the Olaplex No. 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo.
This highly concentrated, sulfate-free shampoo forms a rich lather to neutralize brassiness and boost brightness after one use. Suited for all blonde, lightened and grey hair, the non-drying formula can be rotated into any hair maintenance routine as needed for no more brassy!
Many potent purple shampoos leave my hair feeling dry and stripped, but this one actually leaves it feeling soft. For me, it only takes a minute for it to tone down my brassiness, so I rinse as soon I reach full lather.
If it’s been a few days between shampoos, I first wash with Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo for a good cleaning, then a quick wash with the No. 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo. And I always follow with the Olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner.
This is one of the most potent purple shampoos I’ve tried, so I’d recommend letting it process in short increments until you find the sweet spot for your hair! I use it about every 10 days, or when I notice my hair is getting too ‘yellow.’ The results are immediate and gives my color a fresh boost.
Here’s a completely unedited Before & After shot after a single one-minute wash with the Olaplex No. 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo. Notice how it really brightens the blondest pieces, bringing dimension back!
Add it to your line-up, because I’m a fan! You can read my full Olaplex routine HERE.
Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil | Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector | Olaplex No. 0 Intense Bond Building Treatment | Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother | Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo | Olaplex No. 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo | Olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner
Each of the Olaplex products is highly effective on their own, so it’s not essential to use the entire line to see improvement, but I can almost guarantee you’ll be so impressed by the transformation of your hair, you won’t want to use anything else!
If you’re looking to start small, definitely go with Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector first, followed by No. 6 Bond Smoother! My hairdresser is amazed each time I come in at the transformation of my hair! It’s stronger and shinier, with noticeably less damage and breakage.
So tell me, are you on the Olaplex train with me? Have you tried the No. 4P yet? Oh, and if you’re wondering, Nos. 1 and 2 are for use just in salons!
