In case you missed it: Olaplex has introduced the latest member to its line of concentrated treatment: Olaplex No.8. Whenever Olaplex introduces a new product to its line, it’s always a cause for excitement because you know you’ll be getting something good. The Bond Intense Moisture Mask is no different. If you’d like to get the most out of this new treatment, here’s everything you need to know.
What is Olaplex No.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask?
Olaplex No.8 is a moisturising hair mask. However, it is more than just your ordinary hair mask. First and foremost, it is formulated with the patented OLAPLEX technology. This is responsible for repairing broken hair bonds that are damaged from constant heat styling, as well as pollution.
It is a concentrated treatment that is fully absorbed by the hair to treat damaged hair without weighing it down. It is formulated to add shine, body, and smoothness to your strands. But we bet you’re more curious about what it can do. Here are some great results that will make you want to have one in your haircare routine:
- 4x more moisture
- 2x more shine
- 6x smoother
- 94% more body
These are some excellent benefits, especially if you’re struggling with extremely damaged hair. This hair mask offers the repair your strands are yearning for!
But that’s not all – the most unique feature about Olaplex No.8 is that it is formulated with ingredients normally used in skincare products. This allows it to address a crucial element in maintaining healthy moisture in the hair while also strengthening the strands.
How to Use with Other Olaplex Products
Olaplex No.8 is compatible with a wide range of hair types. Whether you have virgin hair or one that is extremely damaged, it is a great product to use.
To use this product, you must adjust the pumps according to the hair length and thickness. You only need to use one pump for short and thin hair. Add 1 more pump (or more if needed) if you have thicker and longer hair.
This is the only moisture mask that strengthens the chemical bonds in your hair by rebuilding it. At the same time, it injects moisture, especially for highly compromised hair. You can feel the difference in your strands even after first use. But you will notice a significant difference the more you use it.
To use, follow these steps:
- Apply to clean and damp hair from mid-length to ends. If possible, avoid the roots.
- Work the product to your hair through your fingers. Leave the product on your hair for at least 10 minutes.
- After that, rinse hair and style as usual.
It’s that easy! This product has a weightless texture so it is easily absorbed by the hair. It delivers residual benefits such that you can feel its effects even after you shampoo. For best results, use weekly!
It is best used with the Olaplex No.0 Intense Bond Building Hair Treatment and the No.3 Hair Perfector (as part of your weekly hair treatment routine). For most hair types, a weekly application is fine. But if you have curly or colour-treated hair, you may use 2-3 times per week.
Frequently Asked Questions on Olaplex No.8
Got more questions about how to use Olaplex No.8? You might find the information below:
Why use No.8 when I am already using No.3 weekly?
The No.3 Hair Perfector is neither a mask nor a conditioner, which is what No.8 is. These two must be used together to repair and strengthen your hair.
Is No.8 a replacement for No.5?
No. The Olaplx No.5 is best used as a daily conditioner. The all-new No.8 from Olaplex is more potent so it is best used on a weekly basis.
How does it differ from other hair masks?
It is powered by the Olaplex technology so it goes deeper than a regular mask in terms of fortifying your strands with the best ingredients. It also does more than just repair the bonds on your hair; it adds shine, smoothness, and body.
