Anyone that colours their hair regularly knows it is a struggle to maintain the health and condition of your hair over time. So I was with my colourist Lauren last night and she was telling me about the new wonder treatment in the hair world! It’s called Olaplex and it is free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, and is never tested on animals. It works by reconnecting the bonds broken by thermal, mechanical and chemical services ie styling, colouring/bleaching, straightening, curling. The overall effect is to make your hair stronger during and after having your hair coloured.
Olaplex is a two step process that’s added to your colour service, your colourist can add it to you lightener if you are having highlights or balayage or scalp lightener. It also apparently works wonders on extensions and can be used as a hair treatment too. Olaplex is not just for blondes, it helps deeper colours remain richer for longer too. The nourishing rebuilding effects from Olaplex are permanent and by all accounts amazing. It is available in some countries already and will be launching in Ireland this week so ask your hair colourist about it the next time you visit the salon.
So happy hair colouring everyone!xx
