Well it made quite a splash when it hit the hair industry and is responsible for the increasing number of blondes we see gracing the streets of Perth so I thought we should check in on Olaplex to see…… where Is it now?
But wait what the hell is Olplaex?
For anyone living under a rock and does not know what Olaplex is ill get you up to speed real quick. In a nut shell it’s a product that comes in a 3 step process including adding it to your color service to reduce the amount of damage the color does to your hair.
This means that all the people in the world who wanted to go lighter or blonder but didn’t for fear of damaging their hair could now go on a bleaching frenzy. But was it too good to be true? Yes and no but i think mostly no when you recognise the boundaries.
The misconceptions around Olaplex:
Well thanks to that time Kim Kardashian went blonde (don’t even get me started on that one) many people seem to think that Olaplex will enable you to bleach your hair as much as you like and it wont cause any damage. Totally not true. There’s a reason KK didn’t stay blonde longer than a month. Think about it.
Olaplex has allowed us hair dressers to push the limits in hair lightening but it certainly isnt a free pass to bleach the crap out of someones hair and expect it to feel “A OK” afterwards but it has opened up more opportunities achieve our lighter tones in one hit .
Here’s is some before and afters we achieved at Spoilt:
So what do our clients think of Olaplex now?
I can confidently say that 9/10 customers who try Olaplex once insist on using it every time they colour their hair.
Some clients will remark they didn’t notice a change in their hair, this means it worked. After bleaching your hair it most definitely will feel more damaged, if you’ve used Olapex and it feels the same after your colour as it did before, then it has done its job.
The final verdict on Olaplex?
We love it and its here to stay for us but i’d really like to hear what everyone else thinks?
