Much like skincare and makeup, most products work best with a primer. Eyeshadow sits best and lasts longer when put on top of an eyeshadow primer, and makeup sits better on the face after a solid skincare routine. Think of No.0 as the primer to your No.3 treatment. No.0 can certainly works on it's own and will provide repair; however, the product is intended to work as a two-part process. OLAPLEX technology works best when the product is wet in the hair. No.0 is a watery liquid that will dry quickly. Using No.3 over it, keeps the hair damp so both products can continue to work during the process.
You may be thinking this sounds like a home-grade version of the salon professionals only Stand Alone Treatment. The Stand Alone Treatment is the ultimate OLAPLEX experience; it intensively repairs hair and remains to be the most concentrated OLAPLEX experience. No.0 contains less of the active ingredient used in step one of the Stand-Alone Treatment. With salon time reduced and COVID-19 restrictions, clients can perform the No.0 treatment at home to reduce the time spent in the salon. In turn, this allows stylists to book more profitable services back to back without sacrificing the healthy and integrity of their client's hair. No.0 is your very own salon-like treatment at home to elevate the integrity of your hair!
So, who can use OLAPLEX No.0?
No.0 is for everyone and works on all hair types and textures, just like the entire OLAPLEX line! Though all hairstyles benefit from his treatment, more intensely damaged hair will see the most dramatic results at first. The more often No.0 is used, the healthier the hair becomes. Results may not be as noticeable, but it is still working within the hair structure.
HOW TO USE:
No.0, simply: Apply the No.0 to clean dry hair. Comb the product through to ensure saturation. Wait 10 minutes, then apply OLAPLEX No.3 Hair Perfector directly on top of No.0. Comb again to saturate thoroughly, then let the treatment sit for another ten minutes. This treatment is a minimum of 20 minutes, though, just like the No.3 on its own, more significant results occur when keeping it on longer! Once completed, rinse, shampoo, and condition. We recommend the OLAPLEX No. 4 Shampoo and OLAPLEX No.5 Conditioner.
Each bottle of No.0 contains approximately 4-6 uses, just like the No.3. No.0 is non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free. It's also: Paraben Free, Phosphate Free, Phthalate Free, Sulfate Free, Gluten Free, Aldehydes Free, DEA Free, Aldehydes Free, and Formaldehyde Free.
