All About Olaplex No.5 Conditioner & How it Works
Behind every shampoo is a fantastic conditioner, and that’s exactly what we intended to bring to the table with Olaplex No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner. We wanted to create the best conditioner possible that not only repairs the broken bonds in the hair with our patented ingredient, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate but leaves the hair feeling intensely hydrated and conditioned.
No.5 has some amazing ingredients in common with Olaplex No.4 such as Fermented Argan Oil, Fermented Green Tea Oil, Sunflower Seed Extract, Acai Berry Extract, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Noni Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Vitamin E, Sodium Hyaluronate, and Biotin. We went over these in our Olaplex No.4 article, here.
No.5 contains additional nutrient dense conditioning ingredients to finish your hair washing routine the smoothest way possible.
Phytenso, derived from soybeans, rapidly absorbs into the hair, providing long-lasting moisture and strength.
No.5 also contains naturally derived ingredients like Green Tea Seed Oil, Abyssinian Oil, Avocado Oil, Grape Seed Oil, and Red Marine Algae that each plays their own role when it comes to intensely moisturizing the hair.
Red Marine Algae is a marine plant protein that offers a superior level of extended hydration and emollience. Avocado oil is one of the most highly conditioning, moisturizing oils there is, while Grape Seed Oil contains Vitamin E which works as an antioxidant and conditioning agent.
There are also ingredients like Abyssinian Oil, derived from the Crambe Abyssinica Seed, that help with color retention and protection against the damage caused by heat styling tools.
Chromaveil is a hair and color protectant. It helps to shield color-treated and processed hair from UVA and UVB rays, protecting colored hair from fading while leaving it silky soft.
The ingredients in Olaplex No.5 create a bottle of deeply restorative, hydrating, protecting, nourishing, growth stimulating conditioner to keep your hair looking healthy and robust. Use it at home or in-salon as part of the 1-2-3-4-5 and 3-4-5 systems.
