Our Escort Girls tested Olaplex Shampoo
Olaplex seems to have a clear mission: to fulfil all of our hair needs and desires. In recent years, for example, the brand has won the No. 0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment, the No. 9 Bond Protector Hair Serum and a silver shampoo for blonde and grey hair. But that is by no means the end of it. This summer, Olaplex unveiled a new product: the No. 4C Clarifying Shampoo, which promises an intense cleansing, so our Escort Service asked some of our escort girls about it.
According to Google Trends, searches for “best-clarifying shampoo” have become increasingly frequent over the past month. It makes sense: the warmer weather means we sweat all, the more – including on the scalp – and combined with other hair products like serums, oils and dry shampoos, it’s a little wonder your scalp is a bit overloaded. In other words, a deep-cleansing shampoo could be the answer to sparkling hair. Our escort girls tried this shampoo, and they told us some things about it.
What is a clarifying shampoo, and how does it work?
A deep cleansing shampoo does exactly what it says on the tin and profoundly cleans your hair and scalp. The respective active ingredients vary from product to product. But some of the most popular include lauryl betaine (which helps separate oil from water), vinegar or apple cider vinegar (which has antibacterial properties), and sulfates (which are necessary for thorough cleansing and, when formulated correctly, won’t harm skin or hair).
Our brunette escort lady, Alexandra, is very satisfied with this product and explained that a deep-cleansing shampoo also allows you to wait longer to wash your hair because it effectively dissolves sebum and dirt on the scalp. In short, what’s not there can’t be deposited on the hair, which means less greasy, heavy hair.
What’s in Olaplex’s 4C Clarifying Shampoo?
The Clarifying Shampoo is sulfate-free but uses other components to remove deposits. Ingredients like Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate and Cocamidopropyl Betaine are sulfate-free surfactants that help the shampoo lather and dissolve sebum and dead skin cells, and product residue. Then there are more cosmetic ingredients like Sodium PCA, which adds shine. The shampoo should also make your hair colour shine and give your hair volume and softness, and our brunette escort model confirms this product’s characteristics.
How often should I use a deep cleansing shampoo?
“If you use a lot of hair products, a good start is to use a deep-cleansing shampoo every two weeks,” Chie recommends (meaning serums, oils, hairspray, or dry shampoo, for example). “This also applies if your hair gets greasy particularly quickly at the roots,” our brunette escort girl recommends applying the shampoo to wet hair, concentrating on the scalp and working through the tips. Once you lather the shampoo, leave it on for five minutes before rinsing it.
Does Olaplex’s 4C Clarifying shampoo work?
Three escort models with various hair issues (particularly greasy hair to heavy product residue) tested the shampoo – and here’s how it affected their hair and scalp.
Alexandra’s hair problems: “My hair is quite dry at the ends but greasy at the roots. They’ve also been through a few drugstore dyes and have been bleached, so they now have a hint of orange.”
Maybelle’s verdict: “I love Olaplex. If I manage to pull myself together for self-care, I occasionally treat myself to Olaplex No. 3 – this is why I was so excited to try the Clarifying Shampoo. It has the consistency of gooey clear syrup and foamed exceptionally well. According to the application recommendation, you should leave it for five minutes.”
“I’m pretty impatient and probably only waited a minute before rinsing it out.”
“I wouldn’t say I liked how my hair felt right after rinsing. It felt like they had been stripped of everything—they felt so clean they almost squeaked when I rubbed them together. I told myself to have a little faith in the process, so I smudged my conditioner into my hair afterwards. When I rinsed it out, I noticed the first difference: Why can’t the conditioner be washed out? I thought. But then I quickly realized that that wasn’t true: My hair was soft.
After drying them with a towel, I let them air dry in braids as usual. When I shook them out afterwards, they looked shiny, my scalp looked satisfied, and my otherwise very heavy mane felt much lighter. I now realize that the root of many of my hair problems is product residue accumulated over the years. After just one hair wash, I feel like I’ve repaired years of damage. The feeling of my super-clean, wet hair still creeps me out (it gives me goosebumps just thinking about it), but I’m impressed. For a brunette escort girl like me, my hair is my strength.”
The shampoo is a new favourite of our escort ladies
Our blonde escort model, Sophia’s hair issues: “I have a very oily, flaky scalp.”
Kristine’s verdict: “I wash my hair almost every other day because it gets greasy so quickly. Although I’ve tried many products that are supposed to help with this, I haven’t found a shampoo that works well. My hair always looks its best right after washing. Shortly after that, they become greasy, flaky, and heavy. This is not good for a blonde escort lady who loves her hair.
I had high hopes for Olaplex’s Clarifying Shampoo, but this product cannot disappoint me. It has a pleasant, refreshing scent and lathers up much better than other deep cleansing shampoos I’ve tried. I left the product on for a few minutes, and after rinsing it out, my hair felt completely clean – almost too clean. After that, I combed them and let them air dry as usual. I realised the difference the shampoo had made when I saw my before and after pictures. My hair felt light and somehow fell more casually. At the same time, the shampoo worked well in the worst areas of my scalp, where I got a lot of dandruff.
I could go another day without washing my hair – it’s a game-changer. My only problem is that my hair felt drier afterwards, especially at the end. But that’s probably because I was trying the shampoo alone, without using other products. Next time I will combine it with a good conditioner or oil.”
