WHAT IS OLAPLEX AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
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.

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.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NO. 1 BOND MULTIPLIER, THE NO. 2 BOND PERFECTOR AND NO. 3 HAIR PERFECTOR?

All Olaplex products contain the same single active ingredient that multiplies and cross-links bonds; at different concentrations. However, the three steps have been formulated for their own distinct purpose.

The No. 1 Bond Multiplier is to be added directly into colour or lightener to actively protect, rebuild and rebuild your client’s hair during lightening or colouring services. It can also be utilised as a stand-alone treatment on damaged hair as an intensive rebuild service.

Our No. 2 Bond Perfector was developed as a cream formula for ease of application after a colour service or as an express treatment. This second step links disulfide bonds after the initial service, restoring the strength, structure and integrity hair.

The No. 3 Hair Perfector is the client’s ‘take-home’ portion of the service, enabling the maintenance of strong, healthy hair in between colour services.
