We’ve all heard about products that are supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread. But how often does that product actually live up to the hype and deliver the results we want? Unfortunately, the answer is not often enough. Therefore no-one can blame you if you’re sceptical when you hear that Olaplex is the revolutionary hair treatment that actually works. So, we will give you the facts and let you decide for yourself.
We all know about the damage that occurs during colouring, bleaching, perming or when we blow wave and straight iron our hair, causing the bonds in our hair to break. This is where OLAPLEX comes in, it cross-links and reconnects the broken disulphide sulphur bonds in your hair.
Normal treatments may make your hair feel absolutely fabulous on the day of the treatment but thereafter quickly fades. OLAPLEX repairs the hair, making hair stronger with a noticeable difference that lasts long after you’ve had your treatment.
OLAPLEX is a single active ingredient and comes in 3 stages: the Bond Multiplier (OLAPLEX No.1), the Bond Perfector (OLAPELX No.2), and the Hair Perfector (OLAPLEX No.3).
OLAPLEX No.1 can be added to lightener or colour whereas OLAPLEX No.2 should be used after colour has been rinsed from the hair to eliminate breakage. OLAPLEX No.1 penetrates the hair and rebuilds the broken hair bonds, while OLAPLEX No.2 crosslinks the leftover broken bonds. OLAPLEX No.1 and No.2 should be used by a salon professional.
OLAPLEX No.3 can be used in the comfort of your home and will maintain the strength, structure, integrity, softness and shine of the hair between salon visits. The Hair Perfector should be applied generously to wet towel-dried hair and should be left for a minimum of 10 minutes, this can be done once a week. Thereafter it should be rinsed off and followed by a good shampoo and conditioning. The longer it is left on, the more effective it is.
Now, you might still be sceptical or you could be thinking that OLAPLEX will only work on certain hair types. Be reassured that OLAPLEX has been tried and tested on practically every hair type, including Caucasian, African, Asian overly died hair or even virgin hair and works on them all. You are now able to get creative with your hair style and colour without having to worry about the damage.
But as they say – the proof of the pudding is in the eating. So, join the revolution, check out what the professionals have to say on our YouTube channel and get #Olaplexed.
