We all want amazing luxurious, glamorous hair in the colour of our choice without the added bonus of damage and breakage! But the truth is- colouring, blow-drying and straightening- it all has the possibility of causing damage! As hairdressers, we are often very sceptical of products that claim to repair hair and perform magic that should not be possible! Enter Olaplex! This product is being raved about all over the world so we thought we should give it a go- and the results seriously speak for themselves! This product is amazing!
Olaplex is all about the science! Hair is comprised of disulphide bonds. It is these bonds that give hair its strength and structure and are prone to break when exposed to chemical, thermal and mechanical processes. Olaplex works from the inside out by literally re-linking the bonds of damaged hair back together again.
The creators of Olaplex have conducted extensive testing on the product putting samples of hair through extreme processes that would never normally be attempted in real life situations. The results found that hair that was untreated with Olaplex melted away to nothing! Where as hair that was treated with Olaplex not only survived the treatment- but got stronger!
What does this mean for salon services? It means that colours that would once have not been possible can now be created. Olaplex treatments result in hair that is softer, shinier and much easier to manage!
Olaplex is a three part process starting with a bond multiplier added to lightener or other hair colours. A bond perfector treatment is then completed at the basin and finally a take home treatment is used to continue the strengthening of the bonds. Olaplex can also be used as a stand alone intensive treatment for damaged hair.
We are all in love with Olaplex! Find out more about it in the salon at your next appointment or give the Davissa crew a call and we will be happy to answer any of the questions you may have.
