Olaplex has been with us for a number of years now.
At Hair Colour Studio we first came across Olaplex after seeing Kim Kardashian going blonde from her dark mane. How did she do it? We thought. The answer was Olaplex.
Admittedly it took some 7 sessions of bleaching alternated with Olaplex treatments - yes it is not for the faint hearted and would also cost a bomb - and ideally staggered over a few months rather than days to slowly go lighter. However this does not take away from the fact that this was a game changer!
But what is the science behind Olaplex?
Olaplex was developed by Dr. Eric Pressly and Dr. Craig Hawker, two of the world's leading chemists. They invented a single ingredient chemistry that is free of silicones and oils. Olaplex links broken bonds in the hair before, during and after chemical services.
Olaplex helps to push the envelope further by reconnecting the disulfide sulfur bonds in the hair, the treatment which is a 'bond multiplier limits damage to the hair during and after colouring.
When Olaplex was launched a few years ago it started with 2 simple (professional use only) steps.
It was shortly followed by the number 3 Hair Perfector, the retail version to top up your in-salon treatment to continue the benefits of Olaplex.
2019 is set to be an even more exciting year with Olaplex as they have launched their own Shampoo and Conditioner which is great news for all of us as we have been combining other brands in the hope of not disrupting the great work done by Olaplex.
That is all behind us now with this release, and as much as they are more expensive than your regular salon shampoo and conditioner they are worth every penny! If you have been bleaching your hair these are not an option - but a necessity!
The range is now also set to grow with a leave-in styling creme on the way...
No. 6 is a leave-in reparative styling creme that eliminates frizz, hydrates & protects - for all hair types.
The concentrated leave-in smoothing creme is excellent for all hair types including coloured and chemically treated hair. Olaplex No.6 strengthens, hydrates, moisturizes and speeds up blow dry times wile smoothing.
The future is olaplex, and the future is here!
