Olaplex Hair Bond Multiplier
While color trends are hitting us from every corner, you find it impossible to keep a single hair free of damage. Blorange, galaxy hair, and bleached, it is just a miracle to still have hair on the scalp. But as much as impossible this might sound, but there is actually a treatment to help keep our locks safe from coloring damages. One name; The Olaplex Hair Bond Multiplier treatment system. This miraculous hair treatment contains a single active ingredient, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate. Olaplex works by finding single sulfur hydrogen bonds and cross linking them back together to form disulfide bonds before, during and after services. In other word, it repairs your hair from all the damage it receives while coloring and bleaching it over and over.
Olaplex seems like the only product of its kind with 8 worldwide patents publishing soon. It ‘s is free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, and is never tested on animals.
How does this hair bond multiplier work?
Olaplex hair treatment works by repairing bonds within the hair shaft, known as disulphide bonds. These are broken during the process of hair colouring and heating, resulting in weak and damaged hair. Repairing the bonds improves the condition and texture of the hair. But what makes Olaplex different from traditional deep conditioners and masks? Masks and conditioners form a temporary surface on the hair. It feels good but doesn’t last. Olaplex is different because it works from the inside and actually repairs the damage.
Olaplex: The three-step programme
The first step: Olaplex Hair Bond Multiplier (N°1)
This yellow treatment (Olaplex N°1) is responsible for repairing the hair bonds. You can mix 15ml of it with 90ml of water and apply it directly to dry hair. Comb it through from the root to ensure each strand is properly covered. Than leave it for five minutes. You can also mix it with the bleach and put straight onto your hair in foils.
The second step: Bond Perfector (N°2)
This creamy white liquid looks more like traditional conditioner but contains the same active ingredient to repair any remaining bonds missed in step one. It also helps restore the strength and structure of hair. You can use it as a stand alone treatment and leave it on for 10 minutes. Or, you can put Bond Perfector on your hair after you rinse the bleach. This is left on for a good 20 minutes to really get the most out of its chemical mending.
The last step: Olaplex Hair Perfector (N°3)
This is where you take things into your own hands. The third step is a take home treatment, which most stylists recommend their clients to do once a week. You can use it as a weekly pre-shampoo treatment to maintain the re-bonding process and keep your hair in good condition until your next salon treatment. Apply to damp hair, comb through, and leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes at home before washing as normal. If you want to maximise the effect, leave it on overnight. Yo can also ask your stylist to add it to your color before applying it to the hair. It will protect your locks from the damage of coloring and bleaching.
The repairing power of Olaplex three-step treatment will allow us to try on all the hair color trends and as much as we want. And that blorange I’ve always wanted doesn’t seem that scary after all, right?
