Firstly, what is Olaplex shampoo?
Olaplex shampoo is step 4 in the Olaplex hair care system, a professional-inspired range designed to repair, restore, and revive chemically damaged and over-processed hair.
Combining the patented ingredient Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate with the latest hair care technology, this revolutionary range helps restore broken hair bonds on a molecular level – achieving revolutionary results previously unachievable.
The Olaplex No 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo is one of the most popular choices for hair fanatics worldwide. However, Olaplex has since introduced two more revolutionary formulas to their shampoo collection, once again changing hair care as we know it: The No 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning shampoo and the No 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying shampoo.
Below, we’ve covered each Olaplex shampoo to help you choose the best one for your hair goals!

How long does it take to see results from this Olaplex shampoo?
How quickly you will see results depends on various factors, including the starting condition of your hair and how many times a week you use Olaplex products.
Many people see results after the first or second use. However, this can vary. We recommend using Olaplex shampoo every wash for optimum results.
Is No 4 shampoo vegan?
All Olaplex products are vegan, and Olaplex shampoo is no exception. It is also cruelty-free and free of sulphates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, formaldehyde, gluten, and parabens.
Is No 4 Bond Maintenance shampoo suitable for my hair?
This Olaplex shampoo is suitable for all hair types, whether you have virgin, bleached, or over-processed hair! No matter your hair type, it is specially formulated to make your hair stronger, shiner, and sleeker than ever before.
How to use Olaplex shampoo
For best results, apply Olaplex shampoo to wet hair, concentrating on the roots. Massage the product into your hair to create a lather, then thoroughly rinse the product and apply the No 5 Conditioner.
The No 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo
The No 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo, also known as Olaplex purple shampoo, is a highly concentrated purple shampoo designed to cleanse, tone, and repair damaged hair. It features a gorgeous grapefruit scent and is the most popular Olaplex shampoo for blondes!

What does Olaplex purple shampoo do?
Olaplex purple shampoo is designed to cleanse your locks and remove product build-up, all whilst toning and repairing broken hair molecules. It is infused with patented Olaplex technology and uses active ingredients to boost your hair’s hydration from root to tip.
Olaplex No 4P Blonde Enhancer is designed for blonde, lightened, or grey hair. It neutralises brassiness and boosts hair brightness, showing amazing results after the first use!
Does Olaplex work as a purple shampoo?
Yes – Olaplex purple shampoo helps tone lightened hair by counteracting brassy and yellow tones.
On the colour wheel, purple is the opposite of yellow, which is why purple shampoo can eradicate yellow, brassy tones.
How often should you use Olaplex purple shampoo?
How often you should use Olaplex purple shampoo depends on how much brassiness you want to eliminate.
We recommend using purple shampoo 2 to 3 times a week for most hair types. However, you can use it more often if needed – just be careful not to overdo it, as too much can leave your hair dull or over toned.
Who should use Olaplex purple shampoo?
Olaplex No 4P is most suitable for blonde, lightened, or grey hair; particularly hair with medium to light blonde tones (levels 7 and up) and those with yellow or brassy tones.
How to use Olaplex purple shampoo
Apply Olaplex shampoo to wet hair and massage the product into a lather. Then, let the shampoo process for 1-3 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
After rinsing, follow up with the No 5 Olaplex conditioner to lock in hydration and further repair your hair.

Olaplex No 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo
Olaplex No 4C is a clarifying shampoo with a twist. Unlike other clarifying shampoos that simply remove product build-up, No 4C removes harmful elements such as minerals, chlorine, and pollution, all whilst using patented Olaplex technology to repair damaged hair strands at a molecular level.
Olaplex No 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo 250ml
Who should use No 4C Olaplex shampoo?
No 4C Clarifying Shampoo is suitable for all hair types. However, it is particularly useful for those that experience excess product or oil buildup.
If your hair is regularly exposed to chlorine or hard water, No 4C is the best shampoo. It is formulated with an innovative clarifying system that intensely cleanses your hair without drying it out.
Is No 4C safe for colour-treated hair?
Olaplex Clarifying Shampoo is safe for use on colour-treated hair. However, you should not use it on hair that has been recently coloured as it can cause the colour to fade.
With this in mind, wait up to 2 weeks before washing your coloured hair with clarifying shampoo. If in doubt, ask your stylist!
Is Olaplex Clarifying shampoo suitable for blonde hair?
Yes! Olaplex clarifying shampoo brightens the appearance of blonde hair, eradicating hair impurities to reveal vibrant locks guaranteed to turn heads.
Will Olaplex Clarifying shampoo dry out my hair?
Harsh clarifiers can leave hair feeling dry and straw-like. However, this innovative formula is vegan, sulphate-free & pH balanced to prevent drying out your hair. It intensely cleanses hair without stripping essential hydration and moisture, leaving hair clean and unbelievably soft.
How to use Olaplex Clarifying shampoo
Apply Olaplex Clarifying shampoo to wet hair, focusing on the roots and working through to the ends. You should use this shampoo weekly instead of your regular shampoo and follow up with the No 5 Olaplex conditioner to lock in hydration and further repair your hair.
