It is a single ingredient that is added to your hair colour formula when lightening your hair. It eliminates the bad reaction oxygen has with broken sulfite bonds in chemically treated hair that leads to breakage. It is the ultimate salon tool, service, or stand-alone treatment for repairing damaged, over processed hair, or to negate the damaging effects of chemical processing.

We all know that colouring hair causes damage. This is because regardless of whether you get highlights (the process of removing colour) or other colours, a colourist needs to “break the bonds” in your hair. This process is damaging. But Olaplex will multiply and rebuild those bonds, lessening the damage and leaving the hair stronger and healthier than it would otherwise be.

The proprietary multi-molecular formula that makes up Olaplex literally transforms the hair strand in ways we could only previously dream of. Over processed hair gains more strength, split or dry hair is revitalized, damage from colouring, lightening or chemical processing is reduced, colour pops and balance is restored. Hair is resilient to humidity, while curls or styling holds like you just walked out of the salon. Hair is internally restructured to be beyond the best it has ever been.

What does it cost?

The cost is generally about $20-$30 on top of your colour service, depending on  how many applications you need (eg. for more than one process it may be more). For those that previously could not lighten their hair for fear of breakage, the price is worth it.
