Musing and happenings from our salons with tips and tricks thrown in!
Olaplex is endorsed by celebrities from stylist and hair God Guy Tang, to stars like Kim Kardashian. It’s spoken about a lot, but what is it and why should you use it?
According to Olaplex “the simple three-step process includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair, or add it to another service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.”
What is it?
Olaplex is a three-step system that rebuilds damaged bonds in your hair that become broken during chemical treatments and heat styling. So if you’re guilty of over-bleaching, over-colouring, or over-styling your locks, Olaplex rebuilds the strength and integrity of your hair. The miracle treatment allows stylists like us to make dramatic hair colour changes while keeping your hair healthy.
Olaplex 1, 2 & 3
Olaplex No.1 – this is the Bond Multiplier and can be used as a stand-alone treatment or when you get your hair coloured. If it’s the latter, it is mixed with bleach and put straight onto your hair in foils. If you’d like Olaplex with your next colour, just ask in the salon or book online.
Olaplex No.2 – this is the Bond Perfector and is put on the hair once the bleach is rinsed out to further repair any damage.
Olaplex No.3 – this is the Hair Perfector and is the at-home treatment. You can buy this in the salon and we recommend that you use it once a week to get the most out of it. It’s simple to use – just apply it to damp hair and leave it in for a minimum of 10 minutes and then wash your hair as normal.
Can it be used on all hair types?
Olaplex tends to be used to repair damaged hair but you can use it on every hair type – including virgin, uncoloured hair.
How long do the benefits last?
The most amazing thing about the three-step system is that the results last until your next chemical treatment. However, all processes that damage hair, like heat styling, will weaken it.
We offer Olaplex in the salon as a stand-alone treatment for £20 which takes 30 minutes or you can ask for it as part of your colour which costs £10. Get in touch or book online.
