Although it still contains the patented ingredients that heal and repair damage caused by chemical treatments and heat, No. 9 is specifically formulated to protect your hair from environmental damage.

You may have noticed how things like weather changes, hard water, or just being in a more polluted city can make your hair look dull, dry, or frizzy. No. 9 is a jelly-like formula that’s incredibly lightweight, but behind the scenes uses red algae extracts and polymers to protect your hair from pollution, free radicals and harmful sun rays. It also acts as a heat protectant and fortifying serum, using Olaplex’s bond-strengthening technology to help repair damage.

When incorporated into your Olaplex range, #9 should be used first, as a primer on damp hair. You can then continue with your favorite styling products. As a fake blonde, I’ve noticed that since using #9 my hair doesn’t go brassy as quickly. Because brassy blonde tones can be caused by UV rays, an environmental protector like #9 stops them before they can change the color of your hair – the new serum has been scientifically proven to protects your hair for 48 hours.

You can either heat style your locks or air dry them, depending on your preference. For me, I can get a really smooth, smooth blowout with #9, but when I air dry my hair, it’s incredibly soft and touchable – an insane development, considering that 90% of my head has been discolored.

So whether you’re trying to avoid brassy tones in your hair, frizz from humidity, dryness from cold weather, or dullness from hard water in your shower, Olaplex No. 9 Bond Nourishing Hair Serum Protector is expected to join the ranks of the other top-selling products in the line. Trust me, your hair will thank you.
