The brand new Olaplex No. 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo is like a detox for your hair - but without stripping your strands. Of course, we're already obsessed.

For years, seeking out salon quality haircare that you can use at home has been the holy grail. And for years, plenty of brands have pushed this claim without ever really leaving you with the just-out-the-chair look we crave. However, mention the word Olaplex to anyone with a hair on their head, and you’re likely to get a different review. Olaplex – the beauty editors’ bond building treatment of choice – started its life as an in-salon service, usually slathered on after having a balayage or colour to repair any potential damage from the dye or bleach. The results were undeniable, with colour lasting longer and hair looking glossier than any other appointment before. So naturally, the brand created a one-step, take-home version of its wonder formula - the Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector – and an empire was born.

Now it’s a beauty cabinet mainstay, along with a host of other equally-iconic shampoos, conditioners and products all geared towards repairing bonds for stronger, healthier hair. But if you’re yet to take the plunge, the latest addition to the cult haircare line might just be the product that gets you hooked. Just landed at Space NK, the Olaplex 4C Clarifying Shampoo is the brand’s first clarifying hair cleanser, offering something of a hair detox to anyone who is regularly exposed to pollutants and build up from products. Think everything from oiliness, dry shampoo and sticky thickening cremes to fume-filled commutes and work environments that cling to hair and leave it looking lifeless and feeling dull.

Why do I need to use a clarifying shampoo?

To rid your locks of the build-up of residues, every now and then you need something that digs a little deeper than your usual shampoo. If your shampoo is more focused on adding moisture or volumising, it’s going to be less focused on stripping away these nasties which is where the Olaplex No.4C Clarifying Shampoo can come in. It does more heavy lifting, giving your hair a reset and leaving strands lighter, brighter, lifted and in all round better condition. It’ll also mean your regular haircare routine has a cleaner slate to work from, so you’ll see better results from that too.

How does Olaplex No.4C Clarifying Shampoo work?

This ph-neutral formula works to remove impurities that can damage and dull the hair, including excess oil, product build-up, chlorine, hard water minerals, heavy metals and pollutants. It also gets to work on your scalp, deeply cleansing to remove anything that could irritate it. But don’t freak out that this might dry or damage your hair – this is Olaplex after all and, as such, contains that all-important Bond Building Technology™ to help support strong bonds, maintain colour clarity and improve the glossiness of your hair.

How should I use Olaplex No.4C Clarifying Shampoo?

It is designed to be used once a week to remove any excess build-up, applied at the roots to create a lather. Run yourself a bath, and leave it on the hair for up to five minutes to let the shampoo break down anything that might be clinging on. Olaplex recommends following up with Olaplex No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner or, for a more intense moisture boost, using the Olaplex No.8 Bond Maintenance Intense Moisture Mask.

This is hands down the product that Olaplex is best known for. Designed to be left on wet hair that hasn't been shampooed yet - a great step when you're planning to soak in the bath for a while - it can be left on for hours at a time. It helps to deeply nourish and repair lengths, leaving them shiny and strong - ideal if you have hair that has been treated or coloured and needs some ongoing TLC.

A highly concentrated 4-in-1 mask that helps to soften, strengthen and restore dry, damaged hair, this moisture mask nourishes strands from the inside out for conditioning that lasts.

Such a great everyday shampoo, keeping bonds strong and hair looking gorgeous without any parabens, sulphates and nasties. You'll get the best results if you follow the 3-4-5 Bond Maintenance™ System, following with the Maintenance Conditioner.

This does exactly what is does on the tin. It contains the brand’s signature active ingredient Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate, which continues to repair hair at home or in the salon and works in harmony with any of the brand's shampoos.
