    Opa.....Hola...OLAPLEX!

    OLAPLEX

    What is this stuff??

    Olaplex is a bond multiplier. Your hair is made up of thousands of bonds that are damaged & break everyday. Yes, just brushing your hair can break bonds. Olaplex restores those bonds by linking the broken ones back together. Making hair stronger and healthier.

    Olaplex extends the life of color by 2 weeks, allows the stylist (me) to push hair further to get lighter, brighter blondes. Olaplex allows for brighter fashion colors such as neon greens, yellows & blues or more vibrant purples, pinks & magentas. 

    Olaplex can also be used as a stand alone treatment to stregenthen hair that has been previously damaged by other stylist or at home. But color is not the only thing we do that damages our hair. Flat ironing, blow drying, washing with bad shampoo, over exposure to pool chemicals & the sun & yes even brushing can damage your hair. Olaplex repairs from the inside out. 

    Olaplex is not a deep conditioning treatment or a band aid for the hair. If you lack moisture or protein, those things will still need to be added back into the hair. This also does not mean you can go back and forth between blonde and black.There is only so much the hair can take. Olaplex is a tool for stylist, not a cure for bad decisions. :)

    High Voltage Hair has been carrying Olaplaex for months now & I have been loving the outcome! Be sure to ask me about it at your next color reservation! 

    How it works: Olaplex is mixed into your lightener or color. Simple as that. At the shampoo bowl after color is rinsed Olaplaex step 2 is applied for 10 mins. Then we style as usual. No super extensive process.

    This is what your hair looks like with lightener before adding Olaplaex & this is what it looks like with Olaplex. Big difference huh?
