FAQ’s …

What is the OLAPLEX Stand Alone treatment?

The OLAPLEX Stand Alone Treatment comprises two OLAPLEX products; OLAPLEX No.1 Bond Multiplier and OLAPLEX No.2 Bond Perfector. We know that all these numbers can get slightly confusing, so we’ve separated them out for you so you can take a deep dive into how both products work👇

Olaplex No.1 Bond Multiplier 525ml

No.1 is a highly powerful bond multiplier that is designed as ‘the first step’ to repairing damaged and brittle hair. The formula successfully rebuilds broken bonds and prevents further damage. It works best when added into potentially damaging treatments such as bleaching or colouring jobs to preserve the condition, but is also brilliant for stand alone treatments on clients as it will leave clients with a shiner, healthier and strong head of hair.

Olaplex No.2 Bond Perfector 525ml

No. 2 works effectively to rebuild and continue to restore any remaining broken bonds that may have been missed by OLAPLEX No.1, ensuring full nourishment to every strand of your clients hair. Hair is left feeling stronger, shinier, and healthier.

Introducing – OLAPLEX Single Use Professional System




OLAPLEX’s latest release is here and it’s bound to change up how you carry out the OLAPLEX Stand Alone Treatment.

To cater for more in the industry, OLAPLEX have released a single-use system containing 15ml of No1 and 30ml of No2, enough liquid for freelancers and hairstylists to perform a single stand-alone treatment on one client. The stand alone treatment is perfect for clients who are looking for a sole premium hair care treatment and it can also be added on top of a colour service, after the colour treatment has been performed to further protect the hair.

Who is the OLAPLEX Single Use Professional System for?

  • Stylists who are new to OLAPLEX and would like to try before investing in the Traveling Stylist Kit or Salon Kit
  • Stylists who do not frequently use chemical treatments and don’t need full-sized product kits
  • Salon owners: Use as a sampling opportunity for stylists to use with new clients to deliver dramatic results that will keep them coming back.
