How to use Olaplex professional?
But Olaplex No. 1 Bond Multiplier and Olaplex No. 2 Bond Perfector are aimed specifically at professional hairdressers to be used in a salon setting.
The Olaplex No. 1 Bond Multiplier is the first step in the stand-alone Olaplex system. It is used as an additive to lessen damage during chemical processing. It is also used to prevent damage by restoring and repairing the hair.
The Olaplex No. 2 Bond Perfector is the second step in this process. After chemical services it repairs any bonds that may have been missed during the service.
It can also be used by itself for additional benefits.
There are many ways to use these two products that need to be determined based on the client’s hair. Olaplex suggest the Stand-Alone Treatment as the first entry point into the world of Olaplex professional services. The Stand-Alone Treatment repairs damaged hair and maintains strong, healthy hair.
For this treatment, follow the steps below:
1. Mix ½ oz (15ml) Olaplex No. 1 with 3oz (90ml) of water in a non-spraying applicator bottle. Take the client to the shampoo bowl and saturate thoroughly. Process for 5 minutes. Please note, if your client requires more or less product in regards to Step 1, measurements may be modified.
a. For short hair, mix 1/4oz (7.5ml) Olaplex No. 1 with 1.5oz (45ml) water.
b. For long hair, mix 1oz (30ml) Olaplex No. 1 with 6oz (180ml) water.
The shelf life of a pre- mixed bottle of Olaplex No. 1 and water is 2 weeks if kept in an airtight container. Olaplex recommend applying the No. 1 and water mixture to dry hair to see visible saturation. If client has product build-up such as oils or silicones, shampoo first with Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo, rinse and towel dry. Then apply to damp, towel dried hair. If your client has mineral build-up including copper, chlorine, iron, metallics etc., a hard water / demineralization treatment is recommended to perform prior to Olaplex treatment to ensure maximum results. Although Olaplex is entirely safe and non-toxic, we do not recommend using a spray bottle as it is not meant to be inhaled.
2. Without rinsing out the Olaplex No. 1 and water mixture, apply a generous amount of Olaplex No. 2 from roots to ends and work through thoroughly. Leave on a minimum of 10 minutes. You can leave on longer if desired.
3. Rinse, lightly shampoo and if a protein treatment is needed, it should be done at this point (follow treatment directions to shampoo or rinse after), then condition and proceed as usual. Olaplex recommend using Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner for best results.
Note: The Olaplex Stand-Alone Treatment is highly effective on 100% human hair extensions, but contact should be avoided with the bonds, for example glue, track or tape, when using the Olaplex No. 2 Bond Perfector as it could possibly loosen the extensions.
