OLAPLEX NO.6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme Review (new)

Cult Beauty Ltd.

The newest addition to the Olaplex family is out and of course your girl (me, Cindy, hi) has to review it. Now you may know me as one of those “Olaplex saved my hair” followers of this salon quality haircare brand. But my review will always be as honest as possible. I bought this Olaplex No.6 Bond Smoother being so excited yet open to the slight possibility that it’s not going to be that great. Well, once again, Olaplex did it.

What is it for? It’s said to be able to tame frizz, hydrate, moisturize, and protect your hair with highly concentrated formula. Like a treatment, leave-in conditioner, and styling hair primer all in one. No.6, just like its brothers & sisters, has a very mild citrus, fresh scent.

Free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, phthalates, and oil. This product is also vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. It comes in recyclable packaging.

How to use: apply it with your fingertips to either damp or dry hair, and then style it as you want.

What I love about it:

  • Doesn’t weight heavily on the hair, doesn’t get greasy. The texture once got out of the bottle is thick, like, butter thick. But it’s only because it’s super concentrated. Once melt out, it absorbs beautifully and doesn’t weight your hair down at all. In fact, my hair can last up to 4-5th day (plz don’t be freak out. Sometimes life happens. And I don’t have oily hair/scalp)

  • Great for all skin types. No matter if you have damaged, broken, or normal hair, the aims for this product go with pretty much everything. So yeah, it’s an excellent product to use after wash and before styling.

  • Does what it says. That’s the best thing about Olaplex in my opinion. They promise something, and they deliver it. Everytime I use this, my hair style lasts long, in control, has a beautiful shine, and always manages to have the effortlessly posh look. To be used with my Dyson Airwrap, it’s a dream combo. It’s like I have a hair stylist to do my hair every time. Like I were in a reality show or something. My hair is well moisturized, sooooo soft and smooth after styled, and shiny! Look at that shine!

  • You only need a tiny bit at a time. I made a mistake the first 2 times of using it. I used wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much product, aka wasted way too much product (and Olaplex ain’t cheap…). When they say you don’t need much, please, a token size could be overused already if you don’t have super long and/or thick hair. Since you won’t have to use much, the bottle can last for a long time.

What I don’t like about this:

  • The packaging. It works for No.3 treatment and No.4 Shampoo. But for No.5 Conditioner and No.6 Bond Smoother, due to the thick consistency, the packaging is not ideal for getting the product out evenly or easily.

  • The size. I’d like to purchase a bigger size in order to save some bucks , please Olaplex.


Description from Olaplex:

Betraying its chic, minimalist appearance, this brilliant bottle holds miracles. So much more than a hair treatment, OLAPLEX’s four-step ritual is a system that permanently rebuilds the damaged disulphide bonds in your hair – which are compromised as a result of colouring, heat styling and everyday wear and tear. This concentrated leave-in treatment is an excellent addition to any hair care routine as well as being a must-try for those with bleached, coloured or chemically-treated hair. As much a hair styling product as it is a intensive hair treatment, this also promises to strengthen and moisturise, speed up blow-drying time and control flyaways for up to 72 hours as well! Add this to your Olaplex routine by applying after your No 4 Shampoo and No 5 Conditioner to improve the finish of your styling and make sure you’re using No3 once a week to vastly improve the health of your locks!
