Olaplex - The Essential Guide To “The Holy Grail Of Hair Colour”

August 4, 2015

Olaplex is a revolutionary new hair color upgrade service that is quickly gaining popularity among celebrities and around the world. So what’s all the hype about?

Olaplex helps repair the bonds that are broken during chemical services such as hair coloring or using heated styling tools. Since these bonds, called disulphide bonds, give hair its strength and elasticity, harsh chemical services can sometimes lead to hair that is weak and brittle.

By adding Olaplex to your hair color or lightening service, you can help reduce the damage and rebuild the bonds in your hair. First, your stylist will add the Bond Multiplier to your color or lightener and then apply the Bond Perfector after the color is rinsed from your hair. The Hair Perfector can then be used once a week at home to further strengthen your hair after your service is done.

Alternatively, Olaplex can also be used as a standalone treatment for strengthening and improving the condition of your hair. Your stylist may advise you to do a course of these treatment in cases of extremely damaged hair, prior to doing colour work so that your hair is strong enough to take a new bleach or tint.

Unlike conditioning or protein treatments, Olaplex repairs the hair from within. It restructures the hair from the inside and can make even the most brittle or over-processed hair ready for treatment again. It can even be used with perms or relaxers, making it possible to highlight or color hair immediately after the first service!

Olaplex works on all hair types and does not “build up” in the hair over time. At least not in a negative way… but your hair will continue to get stronger, the more you use it!
