Tutorial for a Softer, More Manageable Beard with OLAPLEX!

So you know your beard needs some work but aren't sure where to begin. Chances are your facial hair is giving you grief; it needs some help in the wellness department. Beards often become unmanageable when they're unhealthy. When your beard feels rough, cumbersome, and dry–– it's time for an OLAPLEX treatment! The OLAPLEX at-home line repairs hair internally, resulting in healthy, shiny, manageable hair. 

Los Angeles Piercer and drummer Josh Harris, showed us how he keeps his beard on point with the OLAPLEX system!


If you've never treated your beard to OLAPLEX before, we recommend a treatment to get your beard's baseline in the best shape possible. First things first, a cleansed beard is the ideal way to begin. We like the OLAPLEX No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo as it deeply cleanses, moisturizes, and rebuilds bonds simultaneously. After cleansing the beard, prime the mids to ends with OLAPLEX No.0, avoiding the mouth area. Let the No.0 work it's magic for 10 minutes.

After ten minutes, apply OLAPLEX No.3 Hair Perfector directly on top of the No.3. The No.3, paired with No.0 creates the most potent at-home hair repair available. This amplified treatment rebuilds the bonds in the hair, creating a healthier, more manageable canvas. Applying this treatment as often as necessary is ideal for keeping the beard healthy daily. In this case, the goal is to get the beard in healthy shape, making it more uniform and manageable. Let the No.3 sit on top of the No.1 for an additional ten minutes. 

After the ten minutes have passed, rinse thoroughly, then pat dry with a microfiber towel or old t-shirt. 

Apply No.6. Bond Smoother to the beard, starting with a pea-sized amount. Bond Smoother is a leave-in styling cream that rebuilds the beard's bonds, moisturizes, and reduces frizz, creating a more manageable, healthy, hydrated beard.

Lastly, work a few drops of OLAPLEX No.7 Bonding Oilto the beard to finish off the look. The No.7 is the only oil of it's kind that hydrates and gives luminous shine while protecting against UV rays and heat up to 450 degrees f! 

Beard and mustache maintenance complete! Final result? A more manageable, tamed, healthy beard! This treatment is safe to apply as often as needed. We recommend once weekly or every other week!
