What is OLAPLEX? And why do you need it?

Updated: May 24, 2020

Now that Olaplex have products 1-7, you might feel a bit confused about which products do what, and which products should be an essential part of your hair care routine.

So What is OLAPLEX?

Only the BEST thing to happen in the Hairdressing industry like...EVER!!!

I'll try and keep the Sciencey bit as short as possible. Olaplex is a bond multiplier, with patented active ingredient - Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate (try saying that after a drink🍸....actually try saying that sober😂). It works on the hair internally to seek out and repair broken disulfide bonds caused by chemical, thermal, mechanical and environmental damage. All hair contains millions of disulfide bonds which give the hair it's structure, strength and stability.💪 When all the bonds, especially the disulfide bonds, are intact and in alignment, you have healthy, beautiful, shiny, touchable hair. When disulfide bonds are broken, it results in damage

Do I need OLAPLEX?

In short YES!!

Olaplex restores all hair types, regardless of the amount of damage.

Hair is damaged daily, I'm not just talking about bleaching and colouring, using your heated tools, catching some UV rays, even brushing your hair breaks down the disulphide bonds, causing frizz, lackluster colour, and dryness. Olaplex helps to prevent and resolve all these issues in the Salon and at Home.

Explain the range.

This is the product we mix in with your colour, or the first step of your stand alone service.
