Olaplex For Damaged Hair
Olaplex is one of the must-have products ever in hairdressing. It allows the hairdresser to do much more with chemical services (colours, lightening and perms). With its patented science it is one of the most revolutionary hairdressing products in the 21st century. It keeps natural hair beautiful and repairs damaged hair and help the hair to stay in good condition while having your colour or perm.
The hair gets its structure, strength, and stability from millions of disulphide bonds. Healthy, shiny, beautiful hair needs all the bonds to be aligned and intact. Anything other than that will cause damage to your hair. Chemicals can cause damage, so do mechanicals such as styling irons, blow dryers and heated rollers. The environment can play a part with all the pollution UV rays (sun) and extreme, whether hot/cold.
When the disulphide bonds break, they react in one of two ways — the first way is a single sulphur hydrogen component pairs with a single oxygen molecule which is ok. The second way is a single hydrogen molecule pairs with three oxygen molecules which then create SO3. This protonated sulphate is Cysteic Acid which eats the protein out of the hair.
How Does Olaplex Work? When it comes to having a chemical service, Olaplex comes into its own by pairing the single sulphur hydrogen bond faster than the three oxygen molecules can.
Who Can Have An Olaplex Treatment? All hair types can benefit from an Olaplex treatment. Your hair gets damaged daily, so it does not matter whether you have a colour, perm or it is natural Olaplex keeps it in good condition as well as repairing it.
