Olaplex

kevin murphy WindowCling3

 

Olaplex reconnects the broken disulphide sulfur bonds in the hair. These bonds get broken through out the coloring process and through using heat ie hairdryers and thermal tongs/straighteners.

Olaplex is not a protein or moisture based treatment. It is a single active ingriedient that was invented by Dr.Eric Pressly, PHD in materials, and Dr Craig Hawker, PHD in chemistry. It is free of sulphates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, gluten and is never tested on animals.

Olaplex is going to make your hair healthier and stronger and make your color last longer with minimum fade.

 

By adding Olaplex in with the color it prevents the hair from becoming compromised throughout the chemical service. After the color is rinsed we then coat the hair in a bonder solution Olaplex No2 for approximately 10 mins.

 

Olaplex No 3 is the home maintenance product to continue strengthening your hair in between your colour service. To get the best out of your color service upgrade it is most important to use the No3 once a week.

Applied to shampooed and towel dried hair. And left on for a minimum of 10 mins.

 

What will happen if I use Olaplex a few times on compromised hair and then stop?

Will the bonds that were created eventually break and cause my hair to break?

This question is asked all the time. The answer is no. Even if you completely stop using Olaplex, the disulphide link that Olaplex offered is permanent. The condition thereafter will depend on how the client treats their hair.

 

Olaplex color service upgrade $30

Olaplex with take home No2 and color service upgrade $60

Olaplex strengthening treatment $30

 

Testimonial –Alison Hammond

 

“Olaplex is the biggest break through I have seen within the hairdressing industry in 25years. I specialize in color correction . Sometimes we want to change our color from dark to light which can be damaging when trying to remove color. The porosity of the hair effects how evenly the pigment will take and how long the color will remain in the hair before fading.

Olaplex allows me as a colorist to be able to apply multiple colors in one day to achieve the desired results whilst protecting the strength of the hair throughout the process. As a professional I would not lighten hair without it.”

Kevin Murphy Philosophy

kevinmurphyblog

Born from the same philosophy as skincare. Kevin Murphy products are weightlessly designed to deliver Performance, strength and longevity.

All Kevin Murphy products are sulphate free, paraben free and cruelty free.

When searching the world for ingredients, Kevin Murphy looked for companies that use micro cultivation, organic growing practices, or ecologically sound wild harvesting techniques to ensure the range is of the very highest natural quality ensuring that only enough is harvested to regenerate and encourage new growth as opposed to over harvesting and endangering supplies.

 

Moisturisers from Mango butter and Murumuru butter soothe the cuticles and soften the hair. Extracts from Peruvian Bark, Baobab, Bamboo and orange blossom infuse the hair with weightless moisture, Antioxiants from Kakadu Plum, Orchid, Lotis Flower and Desert Lime reduce breakage and repair chemical damage naturally.

We all know that a skin care regime consists of more than one product to achieve the results of amazing skin. The same goes for hair care. So Kevin invented the theory of Prep, Prime and finish.

This means it is necessary to understand that we need more than one product to deliver results like in our skin care regime .eg: a cleanser, a moisturiser, a moisture or strengthening masque, an exfoliator, a primer and a finishing product.

To enable you to achieve the same results as your stylist, at home, you need to be using the correct products and styling tools. The next time you visit your hair stylist watch how many different products and tools they use to achieve that fantastic result.

Too many people are hoping for an all in one miracle. It is just not going to happen.

Investing in professional products not only protects and strengthens your hair long term, it will help your color to last longer.
