What does OLAPLEX N°.4D Clean Volume Detox Dry Shampoo Do?

Designed to support a healthy scalp whilst targeting excess oils and helping you put your hair wash day off a little longer, this innovative dry shampoo for oily hair soothes and cleanses your strands whilst working to detox your scalp.

The formula contains an ingredient called Rambutan Seed Extract which provides a sustainable source of antioxidants that works to detoxify. Neutralising the odour-causing pollutants and impurities that build up on your scalp and strands, the extract helps to leave your hair feeling clean and fresh whilst soothing your scalp.

The dry shampoo also contains ultra-fine micro starch, which is a powerhouse ingredient for oil absorption, and helps to diminish the excess oil that is just one cause of oily hair. It helps to create air between your hair strands, giving a boost in volume and leaving behind softer hair.

The formula is specially designed to leave no trace of the tell-tale chalky, white residue that’s common in so many dry shampoos, so you can wear this formula in confidence without worrying about that dusty-hair finish.

With the brand’s Bond Building Technologyℱ, your tresses will be left feeling fresh, clean, and full of renewed vitality.
