Is Olaplex a Conditioner?
It is important to remember that Olaplex is NOT a conditioner. Conditioners are cosmetic whereas Olaplex works internally to cross link single sulfur hydrogen bonds to create disulfide bonds. Moisture and protein are entirely separate issues that should be addressed separately.
Let's just get something straight: Olaplex isn't just another hair conditioning treatment. In fact, it doesn't use the word *conditioning* - often just a buzzword for one-off high-shine and smoothness - anywhere in it's advertising. What it is, instead, is system that permanently rebuilds the damaged disulphide bonds in your hair that are broken during the chemical process. If you've over-bleached over the years, Olaplex allows you to rebuild the strength, structure and integrity of your hair; a 'reset' for your locks, if you will. The system has allowed colourists to do work that they'd only ever dreamed of before. Black to blonde in one session? No problem.
Our simple three-step process includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair, or add it to another service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.
