We’ve spent October promoting Olaplex… but what actually is it?
Put simply, Olaplex is the latest revelation in bond repairing treatments. It’s an additive predominantly used during a colour service that goes into the colour or bleach and prevents hair from being damaged by the colouring process. This means that we can push the boundaries of our colour services without compromising the integrity of the hair.
We have been using Olaplex in the salon for the past couple of months and have noticed a huge difference in our clients hair strength, shine and longevity of colour. We’ve all been excited to start using the products and have been genuinely impressed with the results! Olaplex improves moisture retention which is incredibly important when having a colour service, especially when lightening or using bleach, as they usually dry the hair out. Colours look richer and last a lot longer which means you can potentially leave it a couple of extra weeks between colour appointments.
Olaplex isn’t just for those who have chemical services; it can also be used as a stand-alone treatment for those who don’t colour their hair. It helps to repair existing damage whilst protecting it from future thermal, mechanical and environmental harm. Olaplex is a great way to get your hair in the best condition possible, especially when you are trying to grow it.
As always, we like to give you the pros and cons when we do product or equipment blogs as we feel it’s only fair to give an honest view. In our opinion, there are very few negatives about using Olaplex! Having fantastic hair does come at a price; There is the additional cost of having an Olaplex upgrade (£15) however we personally think it’s well worth it when you get to leave with beautiful looking, healthy, strong hair. Even textured and curly hair feels great too! You may also find that your appointment takes slightly longer than usual due to the treatment taking 10 minutes to work its magic and the processing time for colours can sometimes be slower, so just bare in mind that you may have another 20 minutes or so in the salon.
Throughout October we are offering everyone a FREE Olaplex treatment with all colour services, as we want you to see the results for yourselves. We’re in love with this fantastic product and are thrilled to be able to offer it at Saints Hair & Beauty!
