Olaplex overview- How does it work?
Olaplex is known as a pioneering hair care brand that began advancements into the range of ‘bond-building’ and is renowned for its versatility and high quality products. The entire range is not only suitable for all hair types and densities, it is cruelty free, allergen safe for both gluten and nut intolerances in addition to being free from all parabens, sulphates and phthalates!
Olaplex is the only patented bond builder in the haircare industry. Meaning it is the best and only product on the market to aid in repairing and restoring hair damage. It does this through one key ingredient, known as ‘Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate’ (BADD). This ingredient is found in every single Olaplex product, at different strengths, along with other complementary elements which all contribute to restoring the health and appearance of your hair.
Healthy hair is defined by the integrity of each strand, these strands are made up of ‘bonds’, and when these bonds are broken (Through means such as over-styling or hot tools on our hair) it presents as split ends, dullness, breakage… etc.
Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate works to repair the broken bonds by realigning them within the hair cuticle, significantly improving the strength and integrity of the hair shaft. This provides immediate results as soon as your treatment is finished, leaving you with shinier, smoother and sleeker hair.
