OLAPLEX SPECIAL BOND MULTIPLYING PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT

Guidelines for the Olaplex Bond Strengthening Stand Alone Professional Treatment Service (The Treatment):

This is our most popular service and a great introduction to the Olaplex System.

For hair that has been compromised chemically or thermally damaged, The Treatment should be your first achievement. The Olaplex Bond Multiplying System can be used as a kind of ‘reset button’ for your client’s hair. The Treatment helps you to rebuild the strength, structure and integrity of damaged hair to the point where a colour or chemical service would, once again, be feasible. The Treatment should be done before and/or after a chemical service by a Professional Stylist. The Treatment is for all hair types, from virgin to damaged or chemically treated hair. When doing multiple hair lightening sessions, this service is recommended after every hair lightening process.

STEP 1

Mix 15ml (1/2oz) (3 teaspoons) of Olaplex No1 with 90ml (3oz) of water in a non-spraying applicator bottle (Do Not use a spray bottle). Apply from roots to ends on dry or damp towel dried hair. (If the client has product build up, you may want to shampoo and towel dry thoroughly first). Saturate hair with The Treatment and leave on for 5 or more minutes.

STEP 2

Without rinsing out Step 1, apply 5ml (1 teaspoon) of Olaplex No2 to short to medium hair. For longer hair apply 10ml (2 teaspoons) of Olaplex No2. Comb through once. Leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes; longer for damaged hair.

STEP 3

Rinse, shampoo, and apply your in-salon conditioner or treatment as required.

OLAPLEX WITH BLEACH (FOILS OR MECHE)
Olaplex Helps To: Protect & Preserve the Integrity of Hair.

Best Practice: Olaplex works well with bleach, but you still need to check the integrity of the hair. Good judgement is still required.

IMPORTANT: IF YOU WOULD NOT APPLY BLEACH WITHOUT OLAPLEX DO NOT APPLY BLEACH WITH OLAPLEX.

Whenever you use Olaplex No1, you always need to use Olaplex No2: except when perming. For use with perms, keratin treatments and relaxers, visit: www.olaplex.co.uk/faq/. It is normal for processing time to take longer with bleach, be patient; it’s well worth the wait.

IMPORTANT: YOU WILL NEED TO INCREASE THE DEVELOPER ONE FULL VOLUME AS THE OLAPLEX LIQUID WILL DILUTE YOUR BLEACH. EXAMPLE: 20VOL. TO 30; 30VOL. TO 40.

NOTE: The amount of Olaplex used depends on the quantity of bleach being used, not the amount of both developer and bleach combined.

STEP 1

Mix bleach and developer thoroughly before adding Olaplex No1.
Mix 7.5ml (1/4oz) of Olaplex No1 if using 30g (1oz) or more of bleach. You can add more bleach powder after mixing to thicken your consistency if required.
If using 30g (1oz)of bleach, mix 3.75ml (1/8oz) of Olaplex No1 into your bleach.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT ADD ANY MORE OLAPLEX No1 AS IT WILL DILUTE YOUR BLEACH AND COMPROMISE THE RESULT.

WHAT NEXT: Once your bleach has developed to your desired level of colour, DO NOT SHAMPOO.

STEP 2

Thoroughly rinse the hair to remove all traces of bleach and towel dry.

STEP 3

Apply 5ml (1 teaspoon) of Olaplex No2 to short to medium hair. For longer hair, apply 10ml (2 teaspoons) of Olaplex No2.
Comb through once. Leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes; longer for damaged hair.

STEP 4

If you are NOT applying a TONER, rinse, shampoo, and apply any in-salon conditioner or treatment as required. If you are applying a TONER please continue to the section ‘OLAPLEX WITH TONERS’.

OLAPLEX WITH TONERS
You do not need to add Olaplex No1 to your TONER if applied for less than 10 minutes as it will not be effective.

STEP 1

Mix 3.75ml (1/8oz) of Olaplex No1 into your TONER.

STEP 2

Rinse hair thoroughly to remove all traces of TONER and towel dry.
