OLAPLEX

OLAPLEX

How does OLAPLEX work?


All hair types (natural, curly, fine, straight, etc.) derive most of their integrity from healthy, properly paired, disulfide bonds. When hair is damaged via thermal, chemical, mechanical or environmental factors, these disulfide bonds are broken apart resulting in single sulfur hydrogen bonds. What happens after a disulfide bond breaks? There are two reactions that can take place. The first reaction is that the single sulfur hydrogen component pairs with a single oxygen molecule. This makes a perfect pair with no further damage taking place. The second reaction is where damage occurs. A single sulfur hydrogen molecule will pair with three oxygen molecules creating S03, or what is known as a sulfate group. The protonated sulfate is known as Cysteic Acid. Cysteic acid then eats the protein out of the hair. In the case of chemical services, OLAPLEX works by pairing with the single sulfur hydrogen bond faster than the three oxygen molecules can.




Who is OLAPLEX for?


OLAPLEX is beneficial for all hair types. Whether your hair is Color Treated, Texture Treated, Virgin or anything in between, it is damaged on a daily basis. OLAPLEX assists in both preventing that damage and repairing it, returning the hair to a virgin like state. OLAPLEX is compatible with all manufacturers chemical service products.





N.°0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment

Can you use the NO.0 alone?


No.0 is an intensive repair booster that absorbs deeply into the hair. It’s designed to work in tandem with No.3 in order to receive the intense repair. While No.3 Hair Perfector can be used on its own, we do not recommend using No.0 alone.




Does NO.0 work without NO.3?


Yes, it will provide some repair, but is designed to work as a two-part process. OLAPLEX technology works best when the product is wet in the hair. No.0 is a watery liquid that will dry quickly. Using No.3 over it, keeps the hair damp so both products can continue to work during the process.




Can NO.3 be put on immediately after NO.0 to save time?


No. No.0 needs to fully absorb into the hair for at least 10 minutes. This allows the No.3 to be pulled deeper within the hair structure.




Can NO.0 be used on "normal" hair? Does hair need to be damaged?


All hair types & textures will benefit from this. More intensely damaged hair will see the most dramatic results at first. The more often No.0 is used, the healthier the hair becomes. Results may not be as noticeable, but it is still working within the hair structure.




What is the max time to have the product in the hair?


You can leave the OLAPLEX No.0 and OLAPLEX No.3 in longer! However, the efficacy will diminish past 30-45 minutes or when the hair is dry. Rinse, shampoo & condition for best results.




What does NO.0 do?


NO.0 is a professional-inspired treatment that primes hair for deeper repair with the highest dose of patented OLAPLEX technology in any take-home product. It rebuilds hair bonds, strengthens and protects hair integrity. Use as the first step in a two-part system with N°.3 Hair Perfector.

For best results with No.3: Apply to damp / towel-dried hair, apply a generous amount of No.3 . Comb through and let process for a minimum of 10 minutes. Then shampoo and condition!




Can I use this if I have not had the salon treatment yet?


Yes! You can use N°3 even if you have not tried the salon treatment yet. This is because the entire OLAPLEX line shares the same active ingredient to repair broken bonds in the hair. N°3 Hair Perfector is formulated for at-home care and maintenance. When used alone without the in-salon treatment, OLAPLEX N°3 acts as a mini treatment.
