NEW PlexSystem Smoothing Infusion Hair Care Range

Meet the NEW PlexSystem Smoothing Infusion range from HeadShock. For anyone who is a fan of Olaplex but finds it a little too expensive, or indeed isn't a fan and has always been intrigued, then I have a treat for you. 
NEW PlexSystem Smoothing Infusion Hair Care Range
The New PlexSystem range has launched with a five step programme and with it, a whole host of scientific formulations that are designed to harness a ‘Smoothing Infusion’ to restore and protect damaged hair.

For me, I have hair that is referred to as combination, so I have oily roots and dry ends, plus if ever I am stressed, run down or really just not feeling myself, my scalp is known to give me a little bit of grief as well.  I have used Olaplex quite a few times and I find it quite heavy for my hair and it just doesn't do me any favours at all, so I am always looking for an alternative to give me that just left the salon looking hair!
NEW PlexSystem Smoothing Infusion Hair Care Range
The PlexSystem Smoothing Infusion range is really affordable, (by that I mean £4.99 per product), 5-step hair bonding regime that targets damaged hair to boost shine, texture and manageability to restore damaged hair to its smoothest, healthiest best requires powerful moisturising actives, micro-nutrients, proteins, and oils. 

Putting all that together, this combination is said to work across multiple challenges to tackle split ends, dullness, tangles and roughness. To make it so brilliant, the PlexSystem combines the high-performing actives that are needed to address the issues of damaged hair, so key ingredients such as: 
  • Pro-Vitamin B5, said to be one of the few vitamins that can penetrate deeply to nourish the hair cortex and scalp, 
  • Avena Sativa (Oat), which is rich in micronutrients, 
  • Saponin, Beta-Glucan and proteins to condition, smooth and strengthen hair. Botanical oils including Chia Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil and Argan Oil have been added for their nourishing and restorative properties, helping brittle hair regain its elasticity and shine whilst reducing frizz. 
Putting all of those together, these hero ingredients come together to work to rescue damaged hair by:
  • Deeply hydrating and nourishing
  • Helping restore damaged hair cuticles, helping brittle hair regain its elasticity
  • Strengthening hairs for a more supple and reinforced hair feeling
  • Helping protect hair from further damage.
Sp, the PlexSystem Smoothing Infusion range is a 5-step system that includes a shampoo, conditioner, a mask, an oil and a serum and they are designed to work together as routine to give you the best possible hair care routine - admittedly I have used them together and separately to give them a try.

STEP 1 – RINSE - PlexSystem Cleansing Shampoo, RRP £4.50 for 250ml
This is a deep cleansing shampoo whose job it is to gently remove dirt and oil build-up from the hair and scalp. It uses Avena Sativa and Glycerin which help to hydrate and smooth the hair follicles whilst effectively removing build-up on the scalp. Then there is the inclusion of Pro-Vitamin B5 which adds shine for stronger and healthier-looking hair.

To use, ensure your hair is wet through and then you only need a walnut sized amount, depending on your hair and then work it through from your scalp to the ends.  I use a scalp brush

STEP 2 - PROTECT – PlexSystem Nourishing Hair Mask, RRP £4.50 100ml
After shampooing, instead of reaching for your conditioner, you use the mask.  Deeply nourishing, this treatment mask helps to rebuild and restore dry, damaged hair caused by frequent styling. It is specially formulated with Jojoba Oil, Avena Sativa and Glycerin and they come together to hydrate each strand of hair by penetrating deep into the hair structure which in turn strengthens and leaves the hair feeling and looking smoother with enhanced shine. To us, apply and leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

This is a mask that packs a punch and it is the one step I use once a week, rather than every time I wash my hair, and what it does is really give my hair that soft, sleek feel.

STEP 3 – RESTORE - PlexSystem Hydrating Conditioner, RRP £4.50 250ml
This is a wonderfully nourishing conditioner and its job is to infuse hydration back into hair that is dry and lacklustre. Using Glycerin for hydration, Chia Seed Oil to lock in moisture and Pro-Vitamin B5 help to strengthen damaged hair, enhancing smoothness and shine.

This is a conditioner that does what it says and without weighing the hair down or leaving it feeling lank and in need of washing all over again. To be used on the lengths and ends, once applied, I leave it for a few minutes before rinsing with warm water.

At this stage, everything to wash and condion your hair in the shower has been completed and there is only two stages left and how you use them is down to what you feel your hair needs.

STEP 4 – SHINE - PlexSystem Restoring Hair Oil, RRP £4.50 30ml
This is a rich treatment oil which works to boost life back into your hair. It has been formulated with a host of amazing ingredients which includes Vitamin E, Sweet Almond and Chia Seed Oils.

You can use this formula on damp or dry hair depending on your preference and you need just a few drops into the palms of your hand to smooth and work through your hair.  This oil also helps to restore those dry hair cuticles by strengthening the hair structure and at the same time preventing the appearance of split ends.

STEP 5 – FINISH - PlexSystem Hair Styling Serum, RRP £4.50 90ml
This is a really lightweight styling serum which doesn't weigh the hair down or leave it feeling greasy to the touch, which for someone with greasy hair, is a relief. Again it is packed full of amazing ingredients such as Avena Sativa and Pro-Vitamin B5 so it  helps to control frizz and tame flyaways while  at the same time adding shine and prolonging your style.

I only need one pump of this serum which I work through my hair using my fingers to comb it through and with whatever is left on my hands, I use to smooth down the flyaways around the front of my hair line.

I am really impressed with this Plexsystem range and I hadn't expected to be at all.  For me, this is a range of products that I use when I want to style my hair without all the angst of dealing with dry, unmanageable hair that won't hold its curl or is a nightmare to smooth so I can straighten it.

The NEW HeadShock PlexSystem Smoothing Infusion range is available in both B&M and Savers.
