Olaplex No 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Creme and No 7 Bonding Oil Review

Olaplex has two styling products that help repair damage and hair bonds and have been working out so well for my hair lately. The difference I have seen and felt since adding these in have been so good. Read on for my thoughts on Olaplex No 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Creme and No 7 Bonding Oil.

Olaplex 6 and 7 contain high quality silicones. I've been talking a bit about incorporating silicones into my routine for my damaged hair recently. See the post on why HERE.

I love Olaplex treatments. I've been using them for years. I use 1 and 2 monthly and No 3 weekly. CLICK HERE for my video on No 3. I've also used No 4 Shampoo and No 4 Conditioner in the past and had great results. My best friend took them from me to use, but I kind of really want to rebuy them again.


Both Olaplex No. 6 and No. 7  have the following:
Ingredient Callouts: Free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, phthalates, and oil. Vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. Comes in recyclable packaging.


I reached out to Olaplex about the silicones in these products. I'm using silicone now since my hair is damaged (see my full post here), but since some are still wary of silicones, I wanted more information from professionals. This is what they had to say: 

"Dimethicones vary by viscosity and molecular weight. It is the molecular weight of the Dimethicone used and what other materials the Dimethicone is combined with in the manufacturing process that determines the degree of solubility.
In the No. 6 Bond Smoother, we use Dimethicone having the lowest molecular weight and combine it with Isoprpyl Alcohol which is a silicone solubilizing agent.  The product is able to work with great results on straight, naturally curly and even permed hair. It is also removed easily by shampooing.
OLAPLEX would never jeopardize its integrity or reputation in the industry by using any ingredient (or anything else for that matter!) that wouldn’t be beneficial for the consumer or stylist
"


No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme  

Them: "A leave-in reparative styling cream that eliminates frizz, hydrates, and protects all hair types. This concentrated leave-in smoothing cream is excellent for all hair types—including colored and chemically-treated hair. No. 6 strengthens, hydrates, moisturizes, and speeds up blow dry times while smoothing and eliminating frizz for up to 72 hours."

Me: This creme is so concentrated, even heavy handed me only needs a little bit. I love it on both wet hair after shower and on days old hair. I can't speak to their blow drying claims, but I've actually noticed my hair air drying quicker since incorporating this and No 7 regularly! I like that it is helping to protect and strengthen my hair. I notice it brought more bounce back to my hair, less frizz, my hair feels so soft and has just looked better lately since suffering from the styling product damage.



No. 7 Bonding Oil

Them: "A first-of-its-kind, highly concentrated, ultra-lightweight, reparative styling oil. 
Highlighted Ingredients:
- Bis-aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate: Works by finding single sulfur hydrogen bonds and crosslinking them back together to form disulfide bonds; disulfide bonds are broken via chemical, thermal, and mechanical processes including brushing and combing the hair; gives hair superior strength by repairing broken disulfide bonds; and anti-breakage properties.
- Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil: Rich in anti-aging compounds including beta-carotene, vitamins D, C, E, essential fatty acids, and polyphenols to protect and nourish hair.
- Fermented Green Tea Oil: Nutrition for hair; Korean skincare uses fermented oils due to their superior absorption and performance benefits; improves feel, absorption, and compatibility.
"

Me: I first saw the 1oz size of this product and was super skeptical. This is a lightweight oil, it almost feels more like water than oil. My hair usually requires so much product so between that and how lightweight this was, I didn't think this would last long at all. Well, I was wrong! Like the styling creme, this is also concentrated and though lightweight, I really only need a little bit at a time! I've been using this on wet hair as the very last step after all of my other stylers and removing excess water with my Aquis towel. It brought my shine up to a while new level and I like that it is additional repair for my hair, which my high porosity, damaged hair just really needs.

If you follow me on instagram or see my "Hair of the Day" posts, you've seen me mentioning these quite a bit. Here are a few different wash days where they were incorporated:



Overall, I REALLY like what Olaplex No 6 and No 7 have been doing for me lately. I've been using them about a month so far, and I look forward to seeing what continued use of them and the rest of the Olaplex system does for my damage!
