If you have hair, you probably know about Olaplex by now. If you'd like to know what all the hype is about, we've got you covered:
What is Olaplex?
So, Olaplex is a new-ish formula that works on a molecular level to repair and protect your hair, both in-salon and between visits. It first hit fame back in 2015 when Kim Kardashian West went from dark brunette to platinum blonde, seemingly overnight, for Paris Fashion week. Everyone wanted to know how she did it in one go without completely ruining her hair - and when she revealed her secret, we all wanted Olaplex,
So many celebs have since raved about the 7-step system, it's become something you just have to have if you have coloured/bleached hair. The main ingredient, bis-amino diglycol dimaleate is currently patented, by the way, which is why you don’t see any knock-off versions on the market.
The 7-Step System:
You don't have to worry about the first two steps in the Olaplex range, as these are for your hairdresser to handle during the coloring process. It's all down to you at home, however, to maintain that amazing quality with steps 3 onwards.
So does it really work?
Anyone who has tried any part of the Olaplex system will tell you that yes, it really does work. It is a ground-breaking formula that people swear-by, for good reason. It is worth every penny if you have chemically treated hair.
