How does OLAPLEX work?

OLAPLEX works at a molecular level. It addresses the damage occurring to hair that is hidden deep within the cuticle. Disulfide bonds are the tiny molecules of ‘glue’ that keep our hair fibres together in their intended, healthy shape.

Bond smoother and oil from OLAPLEX

Unfortunately for our hair, our disulfide bonds are all too easily broken with the use of heated hair tools, brushing, UV light, air pollution, and chemical treatments such as colouring, lightening, perming and relaxing.

OLAPLEX Before & After hair cuticle

When the bonds are broken, they can react with oxygen molecules, producing Cysteic Acid which eats the protein out of the hair. This means dry, rough, and dull hair that is difficult to style and is too weak to take further chemical treatments.

OLAPLEX is revolutionary as it can stop this process. It will pair with broken disulfide bonds before oxygen molecules get a chance to react with them, preventing the damage and loss of protein that would have happened had it been left untreated.

This probably sounds very scientific, but the results are easy to understand. OLAPLEX works by repairing and preventing damage, restoring hair to its former glory, and giving it the strength it needs for future chemical or colour treatments.

OLAPLEX before and after…














Who can use OLAPLEX?

OLAPLEX No.1 and No.2 were designed to be for professional use only, as this is when the best results are achieved. One of the key features of OLAPLEX is just how versatile it is, meaning every client with almost any hair type can benefit from it, such as:

  • Virgin Hair – It’s not just chemicals that can damage hair – heat, styling and the environment can all affect even uncoloured hair. OLAPLEX can help strengthen virgin hair and prevent future damage.
  • Coloured Hair – It can be mixed into hair colour and lightener to reduce damage occurring. Coloured hair can also be treated with OLAPLEX to address previous damage to prepare it for further treatments.
  • Curly & Naturally Textured Hair – Natural curls can regain their shape and hydration with the use of OLAPLEX for improved condition and resilience.
  • Chemically Textured Hair – Use before, during, and after chemical treatments such as perming and relaxing to maintain hair condition.
  • Hair Extensions – OLAPLEX can be used on 100% human hair extensions, though some extensions do have a Keratin coating which can act as a barrier to OLAPLEX.

It’s also free from sulfate, paraben, and phthalate, plus is 100% vegan and no products are tested on animals.

How to use OLAPLEX in your salon

There are so many ways that OLAPLEX can be used to enhance the services you offer in your salon. No matter who your client base is, there is sure to be an treatment to suit them. Here are just a few of the most popular usages…

For this treatment, dry hair is saturated with OLAPLEX No.1 and left to process for 5 minutes. OLAPLEX No.2 is then applied and left for a further 10 minutes. Both products are then shampooed out of the hair and styling continues as normal. OLAPLEX No.4 Shampoo and OLAPLEX No.5 Conditioner are also recommended for best results.

2. OLAPLEX in Lightener & Bleach

OLAPLEX can be added to all types of hair lighteners and bleach, including powder, clay, cream, and oil-based formulas. The amount of OLAPLEX used varies depending on the amount of lightener used but does not require an increase in the volume of developer.

Adding OLAPLEX to the hair lightener helps prevent damage to the hair during processing. OLAPLEX No.1 is mixed into your developer and lightener before the treatment is carried out as usual. Following shampooing and rinsing, OLAPLEX No.2 is applied and left for 10 minutes before a second rinse and shampoo. OLAPLEX No.1 can also be added into hair toner if this step is needed.
