What is The Olaplex Treatment and Is it Good for My Hair?

what-is-olaplex-hair-salon-nyc-01Do you have severely damaged hair?  Then Olaplex treatment may be just what the hair doctor ordered!  Unlike most hair treatments out there that simply hair with moisture to mask the damage, the Olaplex treatment works to mend the hair through “bond building” to repair existing damage or limit damage that may occur during or after your coloring service.

Olaplex can be used in a couple of different ways by your stylist.  The first method involves mixing the Olaplex treatment in with your color, during your color service, to minimize damage.  The second method is to simply mix it with water and use it as a treatment to repair pre-existing damage to your hair.  No matter how it is used, the Olaplex treatment will have your tresses going from drab to fab in just one salon visit…resulting in shinier, healthier, and more manageable hair!

Still not convinced that you should be asking for Olaplex during your next salon visit?  Here are some things to consider:

The Olaplex Treatment Protects Hair from Chemical Damage.

olaplex-salon-damaged-hair-fix-02According to the company website, salon professionals can “…use Olaplex to restore compromised hair or add it to [your color] service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.”  Olaplex not only protects the hair during the color process but it prevents further damage to already damaged hair.   It’s so effective that may colorists consider it their “insurance policy” for clients wanting to do a drastic color change or have severely compromised hair.  So, for example, if you’re wanting to go from jet black to platinum blonde (which is not a color change we would recommend), Olaplex can mean the difference between leaving the salon with more hair on your head than in the salon sink!

The Olaplex Treatment Involves 3 Steps.

olaplex-hair-product-top-nyc-salon-03Olaplex is a three-step process and each process contains a varying amount of Olaplex’s patented active ingredient, bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate, which is the ingredient responsible for repairing those “broken bonds” we mentioned earlier.  The first 2 steps are performed by your stylist in the salon and contain the highest concentration of the bond repairing agent.  One is done as a standalone treatment where your stylist will simply add it to water or directly to your color and the other is a post color conditioning treatment.  The last step is done by you and is intended for you to continue the “rebuilding process” at home.  (Please note, this final step will only benefit you if you’ve had the first 2 steps done by a professional first).

The Olaplex Treatment Isn’t Only for Hair Damage Cause by Bleaching

Olaplex can also be good for hair that is permed, chemically straightened, or hair that has experienced damage from excessive heat styling. Instead of adding the Olaplex treatment to your color, in this case, your stylist would mix the Olaplex treatment with water, apply it to your hair with a spray bottle, and follow it up with the post conditioning treatment.
