Lately there's been a lot of talk about a new wonder product in the beauty industry. It is called Olaplex. Even though I had seen results from other stylists using it, I had to see for myself. First off let me explain what Olaplex is. This treatment goes inside the hair and restructures broken down disulfide bonds. These bonds are broken by coloring, styling tools and brushing. When these bonds are broken, hair feels weak and lacks a consistent texture. I decided to do an Olaplex treatment on a few different hair types just to see what it would do. I don't think I need to say much more, as the pics show what just ONE treatment can do. Please note - After the treatments, no styling products were added to the hair. I lightly used Foundation Mist from Oribe before blowing out the hair. On the one I left curly, you can see how the hair is less frizzy and the curls are more consistent root to ends. I am now using Olaplex on a regular basis. I have been thrilled with the results and don't remember the last time a new product made me feel this way. If your hair needs some TLC, this treatment might be what you need. The great thing is that you, the client, can keep up these benefits with a take home version of the product.
More often than not my fine haired clients fear conditioner or deep treatments. I understand. You want soft hair, but wonder if it is worth potentially not having volume or your hair not holding a curl? How can you get the benefits of healthy hair without it being too weighed down?
Condition before you wash. Yes, I just said that. If you know you are going to wash your hair in the morning, condition the ends the night before. Certain hair types will benefit from using either a conditioner or a hair oil alone, while others will see drastic improvements from using both. One of the great benefits of the newer hair oils is that they are internally repairing. They are no longer just "topical treatments". Putting oil in your hair the night before a wash gives the oil time to do its job and the hair a chance to absorb what it can. All you need is a few pumps and it only needs to be applied to the ends of your hair. Clip your hair up and be sure to wear a shower cap or use an old pillowcase when you are ready to sleep.
When you wash your hair the next morning, wash only the roots; the shampoo will wash off any excess product that the hair could not take in. This will give you soft, manageable hair without worrying about the extra oils weighing the hair down. Over time, you will find that your hair will be stronger, have more bounce and movement and your hair will look and feel healthier than ever.
We carry a variety of conditioners and oils to aid you in your quest for softer, healthier looking hair.

For finer hair types I strongly recommend using conditioner plus a couple of drops of oil.
For medium to coarse hair types, I suggest using the oil by itself.
