Olaplex fans, rejoice. You’re about to add another “number” to your hair care routine. This time it’s all about protecting strands before damage occurs rather than repairing them. Olaplex No. 9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum promises to reduce tangles and static while increasing shine, style retention (which means your curls won’t fall flat) and bounce. It also claims to protect hair from environmental elements like pollution and heat up to 450 degrees. It’s pretty much your all-in-one leave-in.

“I see firsthand what pollution does to hair when I look and feel my client’s hair,” says colorist Tracey Cunningham STYLECASTER. “It’s damaged, dull and lifeless.” She uses Olaplex #9 to make hair shiny with less frizz and even cut down on blow-dry time. She recommends using the leave-in serum on damp or wet hair so you get the most protection from free radicals. That comes from the addition of Red Algae Extract, an antioxidant proven to help block pollutants and neutralize harmful free radicals like tobacco smoke, polluted air, UV rays, etc. It also contains this patented ingredient to repair broken bonds for stronger hair.

Cunningham works the serum up from the tips to the roots and says you can air-dry it for a soft texture or blow-dry it for a sleek finish. “If my clients have waves or curls, I like to use a diffuser,” she adds.

Olaplex #9


I followed Cunningham’s instructions and applied Olaplex #9 to wet hair right after the shower. I usually apply multiple products, one for moisture, one for detangling, and another for heat protection. I like that this is an all in one product. I like that the formula feels smooth and light and doesn’t weigh my fine hair down. That’s probably thanks to the addition of sodium hyaluronate and panthenol, two moisturizing ingredients typically found in skincare.

I have this weird mix of fine hair that’s also dry and frizzy from bleach damage, so I need the right amount of moisture that won’t let my hair fall flat, and this fits right in. After drying my hair with my Dyson Airwrap, I noticed my strands felt smoother and looked shinier than usual. I also had a lot more volume and bounce. Everything from one product? Pretty impressive.
