Fix All Your Hair Problems With Olaplex At Home Treatment

The benefits of Olaplex products is that they bond broken disulphide (S-S) bonds back together, and prevent further damage. Eventually the hair will grow out healthier than it ever was before. This process can happen on previously processed hair as well as virgin hair. There are no contraindications with other lines such as relaxers, colour or keratin treatments and all Olaplex 0, Olaplex 3, and Olaplex 8 contain no bleach or peroxide so there is nothing to interfere with these services if performed after using the products.

What does Olaplex do?

Olaplex replaces missing links in your hair's molecular structure with single 'disulphide' bonds that then form a link again. Think of the links in a chain or a train track. Eventually, the hair grows out healthier than it ever was before.

Why is Olaplex superior to other products on the market?

Because we actually rebuild broken links where others simply coat and build up until eventually your hair will break off again. The difference between Olaplex and the other available treatment options is that you still have to do something with them after application for example, heat styling tools such as flat irons, curling irons or blow dryers. With Olaplex there are no additional steps required which makes it an easy product to use at home. What can be achieved in one step (and you don't need to be a hairdresser or professional to do it), is what normally takes three Olaplex can repair damage in just one application.

Hair that hasn't been permed, dyed or chemically straightened is considered virgin hair. If you have previously bleached your hair - even once - then any further processing with bleach will cause the disulphide bonds in your hair to break and permanently damage your hair. People who only dye their hair but don't use bleach are still able to benefit from Olaplex treatment because there are no additives in Olaplex which makes it safe for every type of chemical service on previously processed hair.

What does Olaplex 8 do to your hair?

Olaplex No 8 is the Disulphide Bond Perfector. Disulphide bonds are broken through chemical service, heated tools and environmental factors such as UV rays from the sun or salt water. They cannot be seen by the human eye, but can be detected by a trained stylist using a microscope. Up until recently this type of light microscope was only used in high level training academies for hairdressers and would cost a fortune if you wanted to buy one yourself. It isn't necessary to have one to do Olaplex treatment because it simply involves adding two liquids together which creates oxygen bubbles inside your hair shafts, so you don't even need any expensive equipment!

What is the use of Olaplex 0 and Olaplex 3?

Olaplex is a bond multiplier that breaks down into two primary types of individual molecules, neither of which is a bleach nor a developer. The Olaplex No 0 and the Olaplex No 3 refer to how they will be used in a system. When hair is lightened, it often loses its luster and becomes weak and dry because the disulphide bonds between keratin protein fibrils in the cortex are broken by oxidation from hydrogen peroxide. Olaplex works to rebuild these broken sulfhydryl groups into new disulphide linkages that are stronger than the original, allowing for a more durable repair.
