So What's the Deal with Olaplex?

You hear about it all the time, this magic potion that fixes everything and takes Kardashian's from black to blonde. It's nothing new (in fact, it's been on the market since 2014), but do you know how it works and what it's made of? Today on the blog we break it all down for you.

WHAT IS OLAPLEX

Olaplex was actually created by accident by Dean Christal, who grew up in the beauty business, when he was trying to create a protective silicone coating for hair to use during chemical treatments. The missing piece in the concoction was an ingredient that could cross link sulphur hydrogen bonds in hair. Once this was added - Olaplex was born! 

One of the fist stylists to try the formula was celebrity colourist Tracy Cunningham. She tried it on Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez the day after she received the product and said she would never colour hair without it again. Dean was making Olaplex in his garage just to fill the demand from Tracy.

HOW DOES IT WORK

Olaplex is a multistep system that works to rebuild broken bonds, repairs, protects, and strengthens hair. It has the ability to turn dry, brittle, and damaged hair into silky, smooth, vibrant hair.

The entire Olaplex line consists of 7 products that all work together to protect the health and integrity of your hair. The first 2 steps of the system are an in salon service and can be applied as a stand alone treatment or can be added to any colour service. The other 5 products are take home products that prolong the life of those newly rebuilt bonds!
