I have this bad addiction to beauty products. If I hear about or see a new product.....I HAVE to try it. I have had this beautiful little bottle in my cupboard for some time now. I used the at home treatment once and my hair felt softer and had more shine.However, this isn't when I fell in love with Olaplex. I fell in love with it last week when my sister used it during my bleach service.
I got this crazy idea to lighten my hair and dye it grey (insert emoji with wide eyes). The reason for the wide eyes, is that my hair is dark brown. When I say dark brown, I mean DARK....in hair terms it called a level 3. In order to achieve the grey color, your hair has to be very light!! Very, very light. This process was not going to be nice on my hair. I also have layers of dyed color on my hair for the bleach to lighten. All around, my hair was a complete nightmare for my sister...but she agreed and we got the job done. It took 4 different lightening treatments! We had to use 40 volume developer (which is very intense!). She added Olaplex to each one and I believe it made all the difference in the world. My hair should have fallen out.....and it didn't. It should be ruined....and it isn't! Basically what it comes down to is, Olaplex is amazing. If your hair stylist isn't using it on you now, you need to change that. I would recommend using it each time your hair is lightened. The at home treatment is always a good idea too. For a bottle of this miracle worker, contact your local stylist or salon.
The science behind Olaplex is this: It is important to remember that Olaplex is NOT a conditioner. Conditioners are cosmetic whereas Olaplex works internally to cross link single sulfur hydrogen bonds to create disulfide bonds. Moisture and protein are entirely separate issues that should be addressed separately.
The at home portion is pictured above. No. 3-
The No.3 Bond Perfector is designed for at-home use. It is best to apply to clean, towel-dried hair. If build-up is present such as oils or silicones, shampoo and towel dry before application for best results.
**Note that your stylist will add Olaplex No. 1 to a lightening service. It is a professional product and cannot be bought without a beauty license.
