Where to find the sold out Aldi Lacura £2.99 Olaplex dupe

·2-min read

Few beauty products can lay claim to achieving cult status. Of the skincare world, there is Estée Lauder's inimitable Advanced Night Repair; Nars' orgasm blush where make-up is concerned, and when it comes to hair: Olaplex's Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner.

It's one of the most successful haircare stories to date, but at almost £50 for the duo and nearing £90 for the full collection, it ain't cheap.

Which is why we were intrigued to learn of Aldi Lacura's latest arrival on the supermarket aisles: Bonded Haircare. A range designed to repair damaged hair from within – starting from just £2.99 – it comes in at a staggering 87% cheaper than the likes of Olaplex or Living Proof.

But can it rival the OG and much-loved hair-bonding formula? Keep scrolling to find out...

So, what is the new Lacura Bonded Haircare range?

Comprising four products– a shampoo, conditioner, pre-wash hair treatment and dry shampoo–Lacura's latest launch addresses concerns of dry, damaged or overly-processed hair with a line-up of 'premium ingredients' to strengthen your hair shaft and reduce breakage. (Read: no more split ends).

You won't, however, find the staple bonding ingredient (bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate) within its ingredient list; that's the hero ingredient used by Olaplex which works on a molecular level to help strengthen your hair from within.

What are some of the ingredients included?

  • propylene glycol help keep hair feeling soft and tangle-free

  • Glycerin is a deeply hydrating ingredient that helps draw moisture from the air to your hair

  • Hyaluronic acid; the hydrating humectant that can hold around 1,000 times its own weight in water

  • polyquaternium-37 is an antistatic to help reduce frizz

  • panthenol aids in the strengthening of hair and helps lock in moisture

  • Argan oil, derived from plants, hydrates your scalp and ends

Bonded Shampoo

Split ends? This shampoo adds proteins to your hair to help strengthen and repair, while glycerin, castor, banana and anti-oxidant rich Pomegranate Extract help keep it hydrated.

Bonded Conditioner

Enriched with nourishing avocado and argan oil, the conditioner is designed to add moisture to dry ends and give hair a frizz-free finish.

Pre-wash hair treatment

Featuring Jojoba Seed Oil and panthenol, this pre-shampoo treatment can be used weekly, leaving on the formula 10 minutes prior to shampoo. The aim? To nourish, condition hair and reduce damage in the long run.

Perfect Proof Extreme Clean Dry Shampoo

Because what's a haircare line without a dry shampoo? At just £2.99 this is the fraction of the price of the long-loved Living Proof Dry Shampoo, designed to rid your roots of oilyness and impart clean, shiny tresses instead.

Note: the collection has already sold out online in record speed, but stocks are still available in store. Stay tuned for our review of the Lacura Bonded Haircare Range, coming soon.
