Olaplex: How does it Work?


What type of hair is best suited for Olaplex?

Olaplex works on all hair types, strengthening the entire hair strand for immediate results that you can see and feel.

What is the main ingredient in Olaplex?

Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate, the core chemistry found in every OLAPLEX product.

Does Olaplex cause Hair Damage?

Olaplex products are safe and effective and have been tested for safety and efficacy, they do NOT cause hair loss or hair breakage.

Can you overuse Olaplex?

All products are labeled with instructions for recommended use. It’s not possible to ‘Over Bond’ hair when using as instructed. 

How does Olaplex work?

Olaplex products work to protect hair and re-link existing bonds, not create new ones. As bonds constantly face damaging forces like heat from styling tools, color and chemical treatments, brushing, environmental factors and the natural aging process, they need to be strengthened on a continuous basis. Everyone has broken hair bonds to some extent. Even if you have healthy hair, you will have some level of damage that needs repair. 

Should I use Olaplex if my hair is coloured?

Olaplex is compatible with any colour or lightener brand, even those that contain a built-in “bonder.”

Is Olaplex only for Damaged Hair?

Olaplex is for all hair types, not just for those who receive chemical services. Whether your hair is colour treated, textured treated, virgin or anything in between, it can be damaged daily by heat from styling tools, colour and chemical treatments, brushing, environmental factors and the natural aging process.

What Olaplex products should I use at home?
