OLAPLEX TREATMENT- ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
OLAPLEX TREATMENT.- The hairdressing world has been taken over by the latest must have OLAPLEX TREATMENT.
Olaplex treatment promises to leave your hair strong throughout lightening and colouring process. YES PLEASE!
Olaplex treatment is an awesome way of cross linking the disulphide bonds in your hair that have broken down due to straightening, bleaching, colouring etc. Your hair is left stronger and not fragile.
Ever since I started to talk about OLAPLEX treatment on my snapchat (@stylesnatcher) I have been bombarder with questions about the treatment: How does it work? Can you do it yourself at home? Is it expensive? etc
OLAPLEX TREATMENT WITH COLOUR
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Olaplex no 1 and 2 can be used with all hair colours – meaning that next time you are visiting your hairdresser to get your hair colour done (it doesn’t matter what colour you are going for) you must ask for olaplex treatment. Olaplex nr 1 is mixed with a hair die and then applied to your hair. That mixture is left to develop with the colour. After the designated hair colour is developed and washed off olaplex no 2 is applied and left for 20 min. The hair is shampooed and a hydrating mask is applied.
You really have to believe me when I say that the difference is unbelievable! I am bleach blonde myself and my natural hair colour is really dark, therefore my hair dye process requires use if bleach. As we all know bleach is doing no good to your hair. In fact in a long run bleaching your hair can lead to dryness and breakage. I do get Olaplex mixed with my hair colour every single time I get my colour done and I can not imagine getting my hair colour done without it now!
I always get my hair done in Cowboys and Angels (4 South William Street, Dublin 2) The Olaplex with colour charge is only €20 on top of your colour charge.
Olaplex is recommended to use with any in salon hair colour, especially if you are looking for a big change feg : going blonde. Usin Olaplex will allow for your colourist to pre lighten your hair without any damage caused.
OLAPLEX IN SALON TREATMENT
Cowboys and Angels also offer stand alone in salon OLPALEX treatment. The treatment will have the exact same results and when applied with the colour. I often come in for my OLAPLEX treatment in between my colouring sessions. Olaplex nr 1 is mixed with watcher and the applied to dry hair. This is left to sit for a while, then number 2 is applied and left for 20 minutes.
The hair is then washed and hydrating mask is applied and trust me: it really feels like having brand new hair!
The treatment takes just over an hour and is followed by lovely blow dry. If you wish to pre- lengthen the BRAND NEW HAIR effect you can also purchase number 3 at home olaplex treatment in the salon. If you are looking to get olaplex stand alone treatment I would advise to book prior to special ocasion: girls night out, office xmas party etc as you will get lovely blow dry after the product is applied. And what’s better way to show off you BRAND NEW HAIR that to go out? 😛
The cost of stand alone in salon OLAPLEX treatment (+ BLOW DRY) is €85 if you wish to purchase OLAPLEX no 3 at home treatment it is €115. You can book your appointment HERE or call 01-679-76-54
OLAPLEX AT HOME TREATMENT
There’s quite a lot of confusion when it comes to olaplex at home treatment- also known as OLAPLEX nr 3 HAIR PERFECTOR.
Olaplex nr 3 can be purchased in authorised salons and applied at home. There’s absolutely no point to purchase if did not have in salon treatment (stand alone treatment or with your colour) . Olaplex nr 3 only works if nr 1 and 2 were applied prior. Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector is retail portion of the Olaplex System and contains t active ingredient as both the No.1 and No. 2. This enables to repair and maintain strong, healthy hair in between your salon services as it continues to link bonds within the hair.
OLAPLEX NR 3 HAIR PERFECTOR HOW TO USE?
You want to apply a generous amount to towel-dried hair, comb through and leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes or longer, then rinse, shampoo and condition. This is NOT a conditioning treatment to be left on the hair. The longer this is left on, the more effective it will be. This may be used more than once a week if necessary.
I really would recommend olaplex treatment to everyone. Especially if you are- like me bleach blonde or if you tend to use your heat tools a lot. I can really really see the difference with my hair condition and I dont think I would ever get my hair done again without Olaplex being used.
I hope I answered some of your questions and I hope I will see you in the salon getting your olaplex on soon 🙂
