Olaplex is a real buzz word is the beauty industry and with good reason. It’s literally the miracle many of us have been waiting for and Tigerlamb is committed to ensuring we help spread the word. As you may already know, it’s a five-step process that works to build and repair broken bonds and restore the integrity of your locks. Half of the process is completed in salon and the rest is for clients to use at home.
But where did it come from?
It might surprise you to learn that Olaplex was created by the President of Olaplex Dean Christal with the help of some very talented scientists. It all started when Dean was researching stem cells and came across some doctors that had developed a UV reactive silicone coating that covers medical implants.
With his long history in the beauty industry he then focused on using this technology to develop Olaplex. After many experiments and many years, Dean was given the details of Dr Craig Hawker and Dr. Eric Pressly who he worked with to cook up a new molecule to work from inside the hair strands to repair the structure of the hair. Olaplex was born and the rest is history.
The product works to reconnect broken disulphide sulfur bonds in the hair. It is a revolution in the hair industry that results in healthier, happier hair and long-lasting vibrant colour which is why we are proud to stock this product at Tigerlamb. Healthy, beautiful hair is always our end goal.
Each step of the process has a different purpose, but they all work towards the same goal. When the steps are combined it is truly a force to be reckoned with.
For best results we recommend you use the entire system however if you can’t you will still see a marked improved from using just one or two of these products.
For a breakdown of exactly what you can expect from each stage check out the details below:
No. 1 – Bond Multiplier goes in the hair with the dye and rebuilds broken disulphide bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair.
No. 2 – Bond Perfector is applied at the sink after the colour is washed out and continues to rebuild and restore any remaining broken bonds. It is a deep conditioning mask of sorts.
No. 3 – Hair Perfector is a take home product that provides client’s continuous protection from ongoing damage and should be used like a treatment. You can either leave it in for 10 minutes or sleep with it in, it’s totally up to you.
No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner are new to the range and are also at home products that repair bonds while gently cleansing and conditioning all types of hair without adding weight. The duo works to impart moisture, strengthand manageability with every wash and eliminates damaged frizz.
