It’s difficult to walk into a Salon these days without seeing or hearing the word Olaplex. There is a really really big reason for that, thanks to this revolutionary range which is taking the guilt out of chemically treating our Hair! It is the only range currently available which rebuilds broken hair bonds and now you at can use Olaplex at home.
Now Olaplex Treatments are not just for the salon and you can continue Olaplex treatments at home including Shampoo and Conditioner! With over 900,000 salons now using Olaplex there is a reason it’s taking over and we are confident the new home range will follow.
You should be careful to only use the Olaplex at home products at home, the other items (no 1-2) are only designed to be used by a salon professional and you should not play about with these at home. The good news is the home range performs great so there is no need to take the risk.
See our breakdown below of each product from the range and which are safe to use at home.
What is Olaplex?
Olaplex is a hair treatment range which actually repairs broken bonds in the hair, yes we said repair. We see a range of products that promise to protect from further damage but this product will help turn back the clock on the damage already done as well as offer protection during treatments.
The Olaplex range includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to find broken bonds in the hair and it then restores the bonds, removing the damage. You can use Olaplex to restore your hair, you will see it added to chemical treatments in salons to avoid damage during the treatment process. Chemical Treatments often break the bonds of the hair so Olaplex is a perfect choice to use alongside.
Olaplex is also free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, and is never tested on animals.
The Olaplex Range
Olaplex originally included 3 numbered products, 2 for strict usage in the salon only (1-2) and a 3rd for home, but the range has now been extended to 6, to expand the new Olaplex treatments at home (now 3-6).
Olaplex No 1 Bond Multiplier
This is the first step in the salon treatment. It is a concentrated formula which rebuilds the broken hair bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair. This product is mixed in with the hair dye/bleach before the stylist applies them to your hair. For Salon use only.
Olaplex No 2 Bond Perfector
This is the second stage in the salon treatment. This is applied to wet hair after the chemical treatments have been washed away. The stylist will apply the Bond Perfector to your hair and leave for a minimum of 10 – 20 minuites.
The hair must always be washed and conditioned following this treatment. The Bond Perfector will always be applied after the Bond Multiplier. For Salon use only.
Olaplex No 3 Hair Perfector
This was the first product created for home use, following clients requests for a take home treatment. This product is fantastic to use alongside the salon treatment but is not required for the 2 step salon system.
The results of the salon treatment can be expected to last from a few weeks to a month. This is due to the damage caused to the hair when we use hair dryers, heat styling products or home colouring, results can last longer if these are avoided. The Hair Perfector will help to maintain the results of the salon treatment leaving you with high shine, softness and strength up to your next visit to the salon.
This product is applied to towel dry hair and can be left to work for a minimum of 10 mins. This product can be left on the hair longer, the longer you leave it the better the results. Kim Kardashian has talked in the press about leaving this overnight for improved hair condition.
The product is then washed out of the hair and you should follow with a shampoo and conditioner. Olaplex treatment at home, get it here.
Olaplex No 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo
The new Olaplex Shampoo designed to use at home. This product protects and repairs damaged hair, split ends and frizz by re-linking broken bonds. Thats right…. you can continue the salon treatment right at home. This is a super moisturising product that will leave your hair shiny, easier to manage and much more healthier with each use.
Just apply a small amount and lather as you would your usual shampoo, I like to leave mine on a few minutes before rinsing out as normal. Olaplex treatment at home, get it here.
Olaplex No 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner
The Olaplex No 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner is perfect to use alongside the Olaplex Shampoo. This product will continue your Olaplex routine, finding broken bonds in the hair and repairing them, restoring compromised hair to its former glory. You are left with the shiny hair only Olaplex can bring.
Apply after the shampoo and leave for a few minutes to work before rinsing out with clean water. Olaplex treatment at home, find it here.
Olaplex No 6 Bond Smoother
The latest product in the Olaplex Range, the bond smoother is the perfect finishing product. This is a leave-in reparative styling creme which eliminates frizz, hydrates & protects all hair types. It strengthens, hydrates, moisturizes and speeds up blow dry times while smoothing. Eliminate frizz and flyaways for up to 72 hours.
Apply a small amount to damp hair after your shampoo and conditioner. Comb through and then style your hair as usual. Olaplex treatment at home.
