Buildup be damned: Olaplex 4C Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo is sure to be residue's worst nightmare. 

Shortly after the launch of Olaplex No. 9, the brand's first-ever serum, the haircare heavyweight is preparing to wow shoppers with a product to purify, restore and protect strands. If you were curious how to repair damaged hair, the hair gods are ready to assist.

Given the excess damage we tend to endure over the summer—chlorine, humidity and all of that fun stuff—this news couldn't come at a more opportune time. Prepare to rock your new summer dresses and adorable straw bags with healthy hair...even if you've taken a dip in the pool more times than you can count.

Olaplex 4C: everything you need to know

Olaplex 4C intends to target all of the impurities that damage your locks, be it dryness, excess oil or discoloration, to name just a few. The gluten-free, vegan product will make strands softer, shinier and more vibrant while simultaneously paying attention to the scalp and giving it the thorough cleaning it's been begging for.

Fortunately, this is a shampoo that caters to all hair types, so regardless of your texture, you'll be able to replace your typical shampoo with the highly-anticipated release. Though it's not available just yet—unless you're haircare pro with the Olaplex Pro app—you can sign up for notifications about its launch and purchase a bottle when it's up for grabs. 


$30, £28
