If you weren't already aware, an epic sale by the name of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is well underway — and with it, pages and pages of beauty deals that make our heart rates spike with excitement. Nordstrom consistently serves up value-driven, exclusive sets just for this event, so you definitely don't want to miss out. After all, when else can you get award-winning hair-care brands like Living Proof, Oribe, Olaplex, and R+Co — including special, jumbo-size items — for up to 33 percent off?
We're taking this opportunity to highlight one of our must-have picks of the entire sale, courtesy of Olaplex. The Bond Maintenance Kit is a three-piece system to give your damaged hair the deeply nourishing, at-home care session it deserves. For just $84 (it'd normally run you $126), you receive a full-size shampoo and conditioner, as well as a jumbo-size treatment — each weighing in at a solid 8.5 ounces.
Olaplex Bond Maintenance Kit
What could be reasonably nicknamed as the "Spotlight Stealer," the No. 3 Hair Perfector is a colorist-favorite protein treatment that is formulated with an active ingredient called bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate, which repairs broken disulfide bonds caused by over-bleaching — as well as perms or even constant heat-styling. (Note: No. 3 is the third step of another three-part system that typically starts off with No. 1 Bond Multiplier and No. 2 Bond Perfector, both of which are applied in the salon. No. 3 is the only one you can readily buy in stores and contains the smallest amount of bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate out of the three.)
No. 3 has a lot of versatile benefits — including strengthening hair from mechanical damage, like brushing too roughly — but it's no surprise that one of its most common uses is to treat bleached and color-treated hair. "Olaplex not only protects the hair from the process to get a desired color, but it also prevents further damage, makes the hair strong, healthier, shinier, and also helps mend some of the previous damage," Yoshico-Alexis Ogawa, a colorist at Pierre Michel Salon in New York City, told Allure.
While No. 3 should be applied to damp hair for 10 minutes prior to shampooing, in order to maintain the health and integrity of your hair, you should follow up with the hydrating No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner in the shower for the best, salon-like results.
Luckily for you, you'll have all three products ready for action via this set. And, before you ask, all three products are formulated for all hair types, pH-balanced, and are free of sulfates, phthalates, and parabens.
