I will warn you, by the time you’re reading this, Olaplex No.6 may have already sold out. It sold out in the US super quickly, so I’m just preparing you for the possibility that you mightn’t get your hands on it straight away – BUT when you do, it’ll be absolutely worth it.
As someone with little to no serious hair concerns (I acknowledge I’m very lucky), I haven’t really been able to appreciate Olaplex in all its glory, but No.6 was a product I knew I’d be able to enjoy.
Tell Me More:
I lurrrve a leave-in treatment, and I refuse to go without one after I’ve washed my hair, which is why the No.6 Bond Smoother and I are a match made in hair heaven.
– Olaplex No.6 is a leave-in reparative creme designed to be used pre-styling
– It eliminates frizz, stengthens, hydrates & protects all hair types from damage
– Like the rest of the Olaplex range, it’s ideal for coloured & chemically-treated hair
– Aids the styling process by smoothing the hair & speeding up drying time
– The formula increases manageability & doesn’t weigh down the hair
– Provides thermal protection from heat styling
What’s In It?
Along with Olaplex’s famous bond repairing complex that you’ll find in both the in-salon and at-home products, No.6 also contains a blend of nourishing and protective ingredients.
In No.6 you’ll find Coconut Oil, Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Aloe Vera and Panthenol (Provitamin B5), which all complement the effects of Olaplex’s complex by providing intense hydration and protecting the hair from environmental damage.
How To Use: You simply apply a small amount to damp (or dry) hair, mainly through the mid-lengths and ends, before combing through and styling. I personally recommend using it on damp hair before blow drying.
What’s The Verdict:
As I said, I’m a sucker for a leave-in treatment and always use one before I blow dry my hair. But I would like to say that Olaplex’s No.6 Bond Smoother is up there with one of the best products I’ve ever tried in my hair – that includes shampoos, masks, conditioners etc. Yep, big call.
Not only is it a great detangler (my hair is super knotty when it’s wet), but it added ridiculous shine that I didn’t even know was possible to achieve. It also made my hair incredibly smooth and immediately eliminated the little flyaways I usually have post-blow dry.
Especially for damaged or dry hair types, this product will be an absolute lifesaver, but even if you’re like me and have minimal hair concerns, you’ll notice a visible difference too. Oh, and you only need the smallest amount – a little goes a long way.
★★★★★ Great smoothing cream – Robin
“With my thick, wavy, curly hair, this product is amazing! I was able to use a dryer and brush to smooth my hair and it lasted several days! No flat iron, totally amazed! It washed right out and my hair was soft!”
★★★★★ Wonderful product – Teresa
“I have very fine, limp hair that is colour treated/highlighted, and at first I thought it would make my hair feel heavy like so many past products I have tried. To my amazement, it absolutely did NOT weight my hair down! My hair felt so soft and healthy plus the shine it added to my highlights was unbelievable.”
★★★★★ The perfect product – Tiffany
“As a hairstylist and as someone who uses this product personally, I can honestly say that No.6 Bond Smoother is a total game changer! I have used this product on many different hair types and always get the same result-unbelievable shine, manageability, smoothness and tresses that are baby soft. Frizz and flyaways become a thing of the past.”
