Olaplex is an awesome, new radically game-changing product in the world of professional hair color---or at home. Apparently it's all over Ebay, so whoever wants it can have it.
Honestly, in my 25 years as a colorist and hair stylist, NOTHING like this product has come out and changed the way we handle hair color like Olaplex. Olaplex works in a simple and direct way by repairing, restoring and protecting the disulfide bonds in hair. The disulfide (or sulphur) bonds are the most crucial bonds in terms of keeping the integrity of hair's strength intact. If you wanna read more about the technicalities of hair bonds and chemical interaction check out Hair Science News Volume #3 issue #5 specifically about the bonds in hair.
“She handed me a bag filled with product, and she basically said it would change my life,” says Aura Friedman of Sally Hersberger when Tracey Cunningham (Gwinni, Paltrow, JLo, etc.) handed off a bag full of Olaplex products. (Quote courtesy of our friends over at Refinery29.)
Seagull is super excited to now be offering Olaplex in all three of its forms. Olaplex Bond Multiplier No.1 is used by adding it to lightener or color when doing all over blondes, balayage or highlights. This protects and multiplies the Disulfide bonds as the chemical service is actually taking place.
All of our stylist at seagull salon are using Olaplex. Some of us use Olaplex in every highlights or Balayage formula and some of us use it on a case by case basis. Not everyone needs Olaplex for their colors, blowouts or even as a service, but it never hurts to inquire.
Ok enough. At Seagull we are totally sold. You should be too.
