Over-processed hair is about as heart-breaking as a Nicholas Spark’s film. Everything started out okay. There was hope. For a moment you thought everything would work out perfectly. Then suddenly the main love interest is dead, and your hair is crumbling in your hands. Mistakes were made. But that’s okay. Dry your tears, dear friend. Olaplex is here.
Is Olaplex changing the world of hair color?
Thanks to advancements in science, Olaplex is revolutionizing the world of professional hair color. Containing some secret chemistry magic, Olaplex is treatment that strengthens existing bonds, and repair broken ones. This is major. Before Olaplex. there was no way to repair hair’s crucial disulfide bonds. No one is quite sure how this secret potion works, but it’s silicone and oil free, and in all current testing, hair texture and strength improve with continued use.
So, naturally, I had to try it.
This salon/licensed professionals only product comes as a three party system.
No. 1–The Bond Multiplier is mixed with your hair color or bleach. In my case it was mixed with Blondor Multi-Tone Bleach and 20vol developer for a root touchup. Interestingly enough, the Olaplex caused the bleach to expand more than usual, and develop a putty like texture. While odd, I managed to deal.
No. 2–Bond Perfector is used on rinsed, pre-shampooed hair that has just undergone the No. 1 treatment. Despite the fact that only my new growth experienced the No. 1 treatment, I put the No. 2 on my whole head. I washed my hair to find it felt like corn silk. That was new.
No. 3–Hair Perfector is a once a week take home treatment in improve overall hair health. So, if you go to a salon for Olaplex treatment, you too can take home this little bottle. After a single week of use, I’m pretty sure my over-processed platinum is softer than my virgin hair has ever been.
What does this mean!?
I’m sold. I think my blonde and I will be using Olaplex for a good, long time. And I think you should too.
Peace. Love. and Bobby Pins.
