How To's
1 year ago

It might be confusing for some people to figure out how to weave into a weekly hair care routine especially if you do not wash your hair every day. With the rise and popularity of Olaplex, you might see little hacks for easier ways to use Olaplex products and we have been really curious about that. Scrolling down a lot of comments, we’ve picked the most common questions and suggestions as follows:

“Will leaving No. 3 overnight will benefit my hair even more?”

“Will leaving Olaplex 3 can cause breakage?”

“Should I not use No.7 before heat styling?”
“Can I put Olaplex 0 in a spray bottle to make it easier to apply?”

Under this blog post, we are going to discuss the answers to this question and review at-home Olaplex treatments and the right way to use the products. 

What is Olaplex 0 for? 

It is also known as an Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment which is specifically designed to be used with Olaplex No. 3 as a primer for No.3. It is supposed to make the benefits of No. 3 even better by priming the hair so that the second product can be pulled deeper into the hair. 

Steps to Use No. 0

  • Brush through your hair full, making them free from tangles. 
  • Pick the Olaplex No 0 which is the first step to the complete Olaplex cycle. 
  • It is basically a hair primer that is applied to dry hair drenching it from root to tip. Leave it for 10 minutes and apply No. 3 after that. 

{Note: Saturate your hair completely wet for No. 3 to be applied on top of}

How to Use Olaplex 3 over No.0?

No. 3 is the Hair Perfector which is designed to repair the hair and prevent future breakage. Adding this product to your hair care routine can help you nourish, repair and maintain your hair. It can be used up to three times a week depending on the level of damage or you can just use it once a week if it’s not that severe. 


  • Apply Olaplex No. 3 on damp towel-dried hair before you shampoo. Apply a generous amount from root to tips until the hair is fully saturated.  
  • Leave it on for a minimum of 10 minutes or longer if desired.  
  • Rinse, shampoo and condition. 

What is Olaplex 8 for?

Olaplex No.8 is the bond intense moisture mask that comes with an airless pump for you to control the amount of product that you are dispensing. The ingredients of Olaplex 8 helps to soften and smoothen the hair, making them look shiny, brushable and manageable. It also comes with a handful of amino acids which basically are the building blocks of protein.   

How to use Olaplex No. 8?

  • Apply no. 8 on fresh, clean hair. In case you have a greasy scalp, shampoo your hair before applying the Olaplex moisture mask. 
  • Do not overload your hair with this product because it is concentrated. It is better to start off with less.  Generally, 3-4 pumps are enough to fully coat your hair.
  • Leave your hair around for 10 minutes. Rinse it off and you are good to go! For best results, use it once a week.
