Olapex is your insurance that you can take your clients hair to levels never thought possible before without the usual damage.


You just add Olaplex Bond Multiplier directly into color or lightener then Bond Perfector after your rinse color from hair. The client takes the Hair Perfector No. 3 home as part of the professional service to use once a week.


We've tested Olaplex on virtually every hair type and it works. Asian, Caucasian, African American, previously chemically processed and virgin.


Olaplex has been used thousands of times with amazing results. The only thing that can go wrong is using too much Olaplex with lightener or not bumping up your developer one full volume. Everyone gets so excited seeing Olaplex work the first time that they want to add even more the second time. If you do this, hair will take forever to lift. It's like adding water to Cranberry juice... You dilute the developer with Olaplex and you balance it by bumping up the developer.


You start with the Olaplex Bond Multiplier No.1 by adding directly into lightener or color. After rinsing color from hair, you apply the Olaplex Bond Perfector No. 2 for a minimum of 5 minutes then rinse, shampoo, and condition. You can even leave it in the hair to use as a cutting lotion. The client takes home the Hair Perfector No.3 to use once a week to further strengthen hair. It's really simple, safe, and non-toxic. See packaging for detailed directions of use.


Everyone wants to know if Olaplex builds up in your hair making it difficult to co lor or lighten after several uses. The quick answer is that the hair just keeps getting better. Our testers, top celebrity colorists who have everything to lose, have used Olaplex on thousands of clients multiple times for over a year. Not one single report of anything negative. The only thing that can go wrong with Olaplex is just simply using too much Olaplex and diluting the formula that you're adding to. This does seem to happen often enough for us to mention it again here. It's a new chemistry and it requires thinking a little differently. But it's so easy...
