09 May Olaplex Take Home Treatment No #3
We love being blonde, and creating all shades of blonde at our Subiaco Hair Salon!
OLAPLEX has been a greatest tool in protecting our clients’ hair from the stresses naturally caused by lightening it, plus when used as a resortiave treatment it’s helped long time blondes like myself restore life into dry, porous and fragile hair.
Now Olaplex can also be used at home to further strengthen your hair in-between salon appointments.
It is available for purchase at One Subiaco Hair Salon

What is Olaplex?
Olaplex is a product that has many uses, but for purposes of blonde hair, a colorist will apply it to your hair when you get highlights or color.
What’s so special about it?
We all know that coloring hair causes damage. This is because regardless of whether you get highlights (the process of removing color) or color, a colorist needs to “break the bonds” in your hair. This process is damaging. But since Olaplex is a “bond multiplier,” it will multiply and rebuild those bonds, lessening the damage and leaving the hair stronger and healthier than it would otherwise be. Check out the below picture for an illustration:
Why is Olaplex so important for blondes?
Going blonde involves bleach, so blondes are particularly susceptible to brittle, damaged hair and hair breakage. (You girls with double-process platinum know especially what I’m talking about). Olaplex will help with that damage/breakage. Plus, because its so effective in minimizing damage, your colorist may be able to take you lighter than would otherwise be possible.
My hair is [fill in the blank], will it work on me?
According to Olaplex, the company has “tested Olaplex on virtually every hair type and it works. Asian, Caucasian, African American, previously chemically processed and virgin.” What Olaplex won’t do is help seriously distressed hair. As Olaplex has stated on its Facebook page, and as Christal confirmed, “[i]f your client’s hair is seriously compromised and you wouldn’t normally process their hair, do not do so just because you have Olaplex. It’s not a magic wand.”
Can I use Olaplex at home?
Olaplex has one product for in-home use, Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3. The product is meant for you to “use once a week to strengthen hair further or to use as a pre-treatment to a future chemical service.”
It is concentrated, so you will only need to use a 20 cent sized dollop evenly from roots to the ends on shampooed and towel-dried hair. (If you hair is too wet it will not be able to absorb the treatment.) You will then need to leave the treatment on for over 10 minutes plus to do it’s job. After that you just shampoo and rinse it out and condition your hair as normal.
