OLAPLEX

This is a little insight into how OLAPLEX works and why it is so great for your hair!

What is OLAPLEX?

Olaplex is a bond multiplier containing a single active ingredient, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate. Olaplex works by finding single sulfur hydrogen bonds and cross linking them back together to form disulfide bonds before, during and after services. Disulfide bonds are broken via chemical, thermal, and mechanical processes. 

Bonds break when exposed to chemicals in colour, from heat, and mechanical force such as combing wet hair.

Olaplex is free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, gluten and is never tested on animals. 

Use Olaplex as a tool. The more you use Olaplex, the more familiar you will become. Both with the benefits for you as a stylist and most importantly for the client in your chair. With this knowledge comes the ability to push hair farther than ever before. How you learn is by continued use and finding which methods work best for you personally.

Common Sense Prevails

Professional analysis and hair diagnosis is required prior to all colour services. When working on compromised hair, it is important to begin with an Olaplex treatment to rebuild the hair. After doing so, perform an elasticity test before lightening.

Olaplex may be a game changer, but it is not a magic wand. Professional judgement is still required and you shouldn’t attempt anything with Olaplex that you wouldn’t without.
