Olaplex: The Hair “Reset” Treatment

What if you had the power to rebuild the strength, structure and integrity of your hair, a sort of “hair reset” that would take your hair back to days of stronger, shinier, softer feeling hair? I’m willing to bet you would use that power in a heartbeat.   

Olaplex is not just another conditioning hair treatment, it’s the answer.  It’s real science with real results and a huge game changer for winning the war on breakage and badly damaged hair.  

This hair perfector, is composed of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen chains. These molecular chains link broken disulfide bonds in the hair and restores the health of hair damaged during thermal, mechanical and chemical services. Especially beneficial for chemically colored hair this hair repair system transforms the texture of colored hair and allows colorist to do what they have only ever dreamed of before, i.e. such feats as going from black to blonde in one session. How do you think Kim Kardashian went platinum?

If you've over-bleached, over-colored, or even severely damaged your tresses over the years, Olaplex works from the inside the hair shaft out to strengthen, condition and literally reconnect the hair strand structure where broken.  It makes the hair stronger by rebuilding the damaged disulfide bonds in your hair that are broken during the chemical process. Our stylists love how Olaplex makes the hair look and feel. The results are truly phenomenal and because our stylist swear by this amazing hair repair system, we are pleased to offer Olaplex at our salons.

How Olaplex Works:

Olaplex works in three stages:

 1.     Stage 1 - Olaplex Number 1: Bond Multiplier is used - this can be put on the hair as a stand-alone treatment, or if you're getting your color done, it is mixed in with the color or bleach and put straight onto your hair in foils.

 2.     Olaplex Number 2, Bond Perfector is then put on the hair once the bleach is rinsed out. This is left on for a good 10 to 20 minutes to really get the most out of its chemical mending.  When the time is up it’s rinsed out followed by a shampoo and condition as normal.

 3.     Olaplex Number 3, Hair Perfector is the third step in the process and also is a take home treatment.  We recommend you use once a week. Apply to damp hair, comb through, and leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes at home before washing as normal. If you want to maximize the effect you can leave it on overnight.

Because of the repairing power of Olaplex, we forecast more and more people will demanding beautiful, healthy hair without risk or sacrifice. For more information, ask your colorist about Olaplex or stop in for a complimentary hair consultation.

Healthy Hair Resolutions

It's that time of year again!  And this year to make it easy we give you some expert advice on how to take care of your hair! Here are 5 resolutions for healthy, beautiful hair.

1.  Protect your hair from heat

Straighteners, curling irons, or a hairdryer in one hand and a brush in the other... Protect your hair with a thermo-active serum. This treatment acts as an excellent shield against heat, as long as it is applied evenly to towel dried or dry hair. When in contact with a heated appliance, the product's active ingredients react and protect hair fibers.  We recommend NUTRITIVE Nectar Thermique by Kerastase

2.  Reduce how often you blow-dry

Again, we cannot stress how important it is to protect your hair from excessive heat abuse. Everyday blow drying and styling will cause damage to your locks. Excessive heat exposure can result in lackluster, weak brittle hair that will break easily. Opt for a natural or wavy effect instead by using a saltwater spray or by doing a braid in your hair the night before.

3.  See your stylist regularly for trims

Getting a trim every 4 months prevents split ends from forming, which weakens the hair and slow down growth.

4.  Massage your scalp

Treat yourself to one of our amazing custom-created Riccardo Maggiore Scalp Massage and Hair Treatment. Besides indulging in a relaxing treatment, massaging your head helps supply oxygen to the scalp. The result: fortified and shiny hair.

 5.  Protect your hair from the sun

You need to protect your hair and scalp during the winter months too! Many hair products on the market today not only nourish the hair, add shine, volume, control and texture, but they also provide UV protection. We recommend our Riccardo Maggiore Rinnova Texturizer.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
