Your hero haircare line is welcoming a new addition: Olaplex No. 9. If you were wondering how to repair damaged hair, look no further because the answer is in a 3-oz bottle. 

The brand's nourishing hair serum is the first-of-its-kind, leave-in product that combats signs of pollution and/or heat damage. Before you're exposed to heat, chlorine and all of that summer goodness, you might as well start giving your strands a little extra love ahead of time.

Naturally, the hype for the item has already begun—even though this newbie has yet to hit shelves. You'll have to act fast, and likely sign up for a waitlist. Good thing the Sephora sale 2022 is right around the corner!

Shop the new Olaplex No. 9 hair serum:

The breakthrough product will hit shelves everywhere on Thursday, March 31. You can grab a bottle directly on the Olaplex website or at Sephora (for those in the U.S.) and Cult Beauty. 

Much like the brand's predecessors—particularly fan favorites like Olaplex No. 3 and the Olaplex No. 8 conditioning mask—the ninth member of the line will be a welcome addition that will amass social media fame. 

Shoppers are particularly excited about the silicone-free hair serum because it'll block pollution and heat up to 450 degrees for up to 48 hours, an impressive feat. Plus, its combination of ingredients will work wonders by detangling, shining and softening.

If you've been eyeing the liquid hair trend, this could be one step closer to achieving it.

Speaking of social media, the Olaplex bun took over TikTok for its strengthening properties and chic appearance. App users have decided to take Olaplex No. 3, whip up a bun and take in the nourishing effects while out and about, rather than sitting home soaking up hair products. 

"Not a lot of people have the time to sit around and let their hair mask for hours and hours and hours. What's nice is [this] kind of made a way to leave it in all day," said Kate Post, a New York-based hairstylist and a member of the Bridal By Alexandria team. 

No. 9, we're coming for ya!
