Olaplex is a magical color additive made up of 3 steps. Step 1: I add Olaplex oil to my color bowl which seriously limits the damage color can do to the hair during the coloring process. Step 2: I apply a post treatment as the last step in the coloring process which reconnects the broken disulfide sulfur bonds already present in the hair. My clients with have achieved amazing results from adding Olaplex on to their ticket and in some cases it is 100% needed to push the hair to it's limit of brightness while maintaining the hairs integrity. Olaplex recently came out with a Step 3: a at-home treatment designed to prevent continued damage by styling, hot tools and wear and tear at home.
