Olaplex with The Painted Lady Shoreditch, London
Why we love Olaplex in London
We were lucky enough to be one of the first hair salons to start using Olaplex in London. This revolutionary product launched in the Summer of 2015. Olaplex has been a game changer for hairdressers in Shoreditch and London but also for our clients.
We now have a lot of clients asking us for Olaplex but still a lot of people havent heard about it. So I thought it would be great to introduce you all to it.
What is Olaplex London?
Hair colouring world has not been the same since it arrived on to our shelves. Many of our clients still havent heard of it and always ask what it is and what it does.
OLAPLEX contains a single active ingredient, designed to reconnect the disulfide bonds broken by the process of permanent hair colouring and lightening. OLAPLEX™ is free of silicones, oils, ‘aldehydes and parabens. The active ingredient is called Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate, this is neither a keratin nor a protein.
How does Olaplex work?
Olaplex comes in 3 parts.
This is the strongest part, it has the highest concentration of Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate (lets call it BAD-D) You can either put it in your colour service or use it as a stand alone treatment.
Part two has a slightly lower concentrate of the active ingredient BADD this goes over the top of part one in the stand alone treatment or over the top of all your hair once your colour treatment has been rinsed off.
Part three is the take home part that you can use at home between your visits to the salon.
Because Olaplex isnt protein or keratin product you still need to continue using protein and moisturising treatments in the form of a salon quality shampoo and conditioner to maintain the health of your hair. Our amazing team can recommend one of our boutique products that would best suit your hair.
Why we love Olaplex at The Painted Lady
We love Olaplex at the Painted Lady because it has made all of our colour dreams become reality.
It has suddenly made the impossible possible. (within reason) We think Olaplex is an amazing product, but it please be aware, if your hair is already severely damaged it may take some time to build up the integrity of your hair again.
