add 2 times more shine, 4 times more hydration, 6 times more smoothness to tresses of every type after a single use. Need we say more?
To celebrate the launch of this new miracle mask, we sat down with celebrity stylist and Olaplex ambassador Tracey Cunningham to get all of the details on No. 8. Read on for her insight into this exciting new product.
Olaplex No. 8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask: $28
This mask is super lightweight– and super effective
One of the hallmarks of this mega moisturizing mask is its lightweight composition. “I love the new Olaplex No 8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask because it works from the inside out instead of laying right on top of the hair.” Tracey explains. “My clients always want body, and unlike other hair masks which tend to be heavy, this will not weigh the hair down” she continues, “[they] don’t want limp hair so sometimes I need to try to convince them to use a hair mask however that’s not the case with this one.” Olaplex’s No. 8 mask is like a drink of water for your mane. It is uniquely formulated to work inside the hair without leaving each strand coated with a slippery sheen.
No. 8’s patented bond-building technology is multi-beneficial
“Other masks don’t provide as many benefits like shine, hydration, smoothness and body.” Tracey explains. “This highly concentrated formula is scientifically proven to add 2x more shine, 4x more hydration, 6x more smoothness for all hair types after just one use.” The mask contain’s Olaplex’s signature Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate – an ingredient with over 100 worldwide patents that created Olaplex’s exclusive bond building hair care category. “This technology penetrates the hair shaft working on the entire hair structure to rebuild the hair throughout,” Tracey details, “[it] builds a permanent bridge between the disulfide bonds. At the same time, it lessens and/or eliminates damage caused by molecules that eat protein from the hair by working faster than the damage can occur.”
Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate isn’t the only thing powering this terrific treatment. No. 8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask also contains high-quality ingredients normally found in skin care products, like ceramides and hyaluronic acid. These components work together to provide deep moisture to your mane.
Perfect for your at-home hydrating– and also in-salon styling
“I religiously use Olaplex No 3 Hair Perfector once a week.” Tracey says. For at-home use, she recommends applying Olaplex No 3 Hair Perfector to the hair and shampooing after 10 minutes. Then, once a week, swap the Olaplex No. 8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask out for your conditioner as a deep conditioning treatment. For salon-use, Tracey suggests a similar course of action. “I use it on my clients in the salon just like you would at home” she explains, “after I shampoo them, I apply it mid-length to ends, sparingly on the roots.”
For shoulder length hair, she suggests you start with two pumps. Use more for longer, thicker hair and less for shorter hair. Work the creamy treatment through your tresses with your fingers, then let it sit on the hair for 10 minutes. When the time is up, rinse it out, blow dry and style. Your clients (and your mane) will thank you.
Olaplex’s new No. 8 is good for all hair types!
“The OLAPLEX No.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask works on all hair textures and all stages of the hair’s life cycle.” Tracey says. “It’s especially good for curly and naturally textured hair types as these hair types tend to be drier and need more moisture,” she continues. This lightweight mask works wonders on all tresses, without weighing hair down. Improvement from the inside out really sets this product apart from other multi-tasking treatments on the market! Body and moisture are just an Olaplex mask away.
