Olaplex

Olaplex has done nothing but revolutionalise the hairdressing industry

Our hair contains millions of disulfide bonds

Say what? There is a magic little ingredient called Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate that works on a molecular level inside your hair. A mouthful right?!

What you really need to know is that it works in a completely unique way. Only OLAPLEX does what OLAPLEX does. It multiplies that disulphide bonds inside your hair, these bonds give the hair its structure, strength and stability. When disulfide bonds are broken, it results in damage.

OLAPLEX is repairing each strand as a whole (from base to ends). It finds bonds that have been broken down by any means (colour, chemical straightening, blow waving, etc) and reconnects them both ionically and covalently. Meaning that broken or weak bonds anywhere on the hair shaft are targeted, therefore stronger, shinier, softer hair that is ready to be coloured and styled much more successfully.

Be aware that Olaplex no.3 (our hero product!) is NOT A CONDITIONER and you will still need to use a conditioner. It is so exciting to have such a transformative product in our hands and for you to use at home. Win/ Win!

Once all the bonds are intact and in alignment, you have healthy, beautiful, shiny, touchable hair.

Product Spotlight: Olaplex No.3

This is the original product that made Olaplex famous! This global best-seller is an at-home treatment, not a conditioner, that reduces breakage and visibly strengthens hair, improving its look and feel. It will restore your hair’s healthy appearance and texture by repairing damage that have been caused within the hairs structure and protecting the structure for its future.

Use once a week for maintenance, twice to three times a week for change.

Top Tips:

  • Olaplex No.3 is not a conditioner. You still need to be using a professional conditioner suited to your hair type. This product is used as a pre wash treatment that must be rinsed out with shampoo and conditioner, although the longer you leave it, the better it will be. This is why  lots of consumers sleep in overnight before rinsing it out in the morning
  • Olaplex No.3 needs to be applied on wet hair or it will not work. This is because the surface tension on the hair needs to be broken for the product to penetrate into the hair!
  • Olaplex No.3 is the dream product for restoring curly hair to its absolute glory! Apply to damp hair and you are good to go!

Product Spotlight: Olaplex No.6

Olaplex N°6 strengthens, moisturizes, and speeds up blow-dry times. Its rich and creamy formula containing the original Olaplex technology, helps to restore broken bonds in the hair whilst giving you all the goodness you’ve been looking for in a styling product. 

Excellent for all hair types, including colored and chemically treated hair, and even better; and eliminates frizz and flyaways for up to 72 hours!

Top Tips:

  • OLAPLEX No.6. If there is such a thing as the perfect blow drying product then this is it! You literally use a pea size amount for your whole head. Has heat protectant in it. Smoothing, shine. Reduces frizz and protects from humidity for up to 72 hours and reduces drying time. Yep. Pretty much perfect.
  • You can put it on wet or dry! Best results are shown when the product is blow-dried into the hair, but Olaplex No.6 does work as a sealant! Start with half a pea size amount and work into mid-lengths and ends of hair. Smoothing and sealing the fly–aways!  

Product Spotlight: Olaplex No.0

Olaplex No.0 is the parent to Olaplex No.3, it is a professional-inspired treatment that primes hair for deeper repair with the highest dose of patented OLAPLEX technology in any take-home product – including No.3!  It rebuilds hair bonds, strengthens and protects hair integrity. This product is to be used  as the first step in a two-part system with N°.3 Hair Perfector.

This product needs to be applied first to dry hair, as it contains the strongest amount of the original Olaplex technology.

Scientifically Proven: 68% more repair & 3x stronger hair.

Top Tips:

  • Application tip: Olaplex No.0 bottle should last 4-6 applications based on hair length and density. Simply place OLAPLEX no.0 on damp hair to create an Olaplex stand alone treatment (usually in salon only) at home! Apply to wet , towel dried hair, leave for ten minutes, then apply No.3 for a further ten minutes, minimum.
  • No.0 Contains the strongest Olapllex technology to give the affects of the in salon exclusive treatments. This will really be your ride and die if your experiencing extreme compromisation on the hair.
  • OLAPLEX no.0 is amazing but needs NO.3 to lock it into the hair so MUST be used with its dream team mate no.3

Product Spotlight: Olaplex No.7

Olaplex no.7 Bonding Oil is a highly concentrated, weightless reparative styling oil.

This oil is designed to dramatically increases shine, softness, and color vibrancy.
N°7 minimises flyaways and frizz, while doing its main job of Providing UV/Heat protection of up to 450°F/232°C. 

This oil is an amazing product that literally brings hair back to life! We love to compare it to liquid gold! It’s the same colour and we promise you it will make you feel like a million bux!

Top Tips:

  • OLAPLEX no 7 is best distributed by tipping the bottle upside down and tapping with your index finger. You only need 2-3 drops – we know it doesn’t look like much, but please trust us! This is all you will need.
  • Olaplex No.7 is best used in wet hair before styling so the product can protect your hair from the heat you are about to use on it! However, you can add a few drops in once styling is complete to bring out optimum colour vibrancy and shine!

Your OLAPLEX regime is best applied after giving the hair a DEEP CLEANSE

We recommend Olaplex No.4 and No.5 (Shampoo and Conditioner that contain the Olaplex Patented Technology).

Remember: Olaplex NO.4 and No.5 are hydrophillic meaning that they are attracted to water. If you feel like you need more shampoo or conditioner, first add a bit of water to your hand or hair before adding more product. This will most likely sort your problem.

Remember folks, there are a lot of “bonders” out there on the market. OLAPLEX is patented and the only product that re-bonds in this specific way.
