Olaplex is bond multiplier is a chemical additive which works with bleach and dye to keep hair healthy during lightning. Hair fibers, at their most basic level are made up of dead cells filled with keratin protein. When these proteins are exposed to bleach or color pigment molecules they become negatively charged, repelling one another instead of binding together. This causes damage during processing as bonds form between the positive charges left on adjacent keratin chains leading to breakage upon the application of heat (blow dryers and curling irons), brushing and styling.
The Olaplex 0, Olaplex 3, and Olaplex 8 minimizes this damage by adding positively charged groups ( cations ) to the protein chains allowing them to bind together. Bond multipliers are added just prior to the oxidizing dye or bleach product to stop over-processing and over-drying of the hair, keeping it strong and healthy looking.
Olaplex may be used with any product you currently use however we would advise that your hairdresser does a strand test to ensure your hair responds well to this additive. There are 3 Bond Multipliers in the Olaplex system, one is shampoo compatible and can be used daily, another for use with color or lighter services and the third specifically for after care maintenance.

Which type of hairs are ideal for using : Olaplex 0, Olaplex 3, and Olaplex 8?
It is best if Olaplex is done on virgin hair. It works well on bleached and highlighted hair (the treatment must not contain bleach). However, it hardly works for non-bleached hair, because the non-bleached hair has already experienced "oxidation" which will interfere with the effectiveness of this product. The bond multiplier ingredients are also quite large molecules that need open links in your hair for them to work.x
What is the buzz about Olaplex products?
The famous salon professional hair treatment, Olaplex, is a real revolution in the hairstyling business. The patented molecule Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate, which is the only ingredient that can break the disulphide bonds in the hair. The products that contain this original patented formula have been creating a lot of buzz for over two years now not only because of the results but also due to their many celebrity clientele from Hollywood to London and Australia. In fact, it is so popular that you will always see a poster advertising the product during your next trip to the hair salon.
If it comes from Hollywood, it has to be good, right? I mean they have all those beauty secrets and tips and tricks and of course if beauties like Kate Hudson and Jennifer Lawrence use Olaplex , it has to be super amazing, right?
You should know though that Olaplex No 0, Olaplex No 3, and Olaplex No 8 isn't only used in the US but also by other actresses like Emma Stone, Victoria Secret supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio and even Kim Kardashian.
