Ok guys, it’s time to talk about a very important and passionate subject at La Sorella………. Olaplex! I hear you asking but what is it? What does it do? Why is it so important? Well if you have been hiding under a rock for the past 3 years, Olaplex has revolutionized the hairdressing industry. For the first time ever, we are able to push the boundaries of colour (especially when it comes to lighting the hair) without destroying how your hair looks and feels. Not only that but it makes ALLLLL hair feel brand new again!
So, let’s explain this Babes, Olaplex is a 3 system in Salon Treatment that literally repairs the bonds in the hair, the first 2 steps are done in salon either in colour or at the basin. The Olaplex step 1 has 100% active ingredient so we think this one is the most important, it is then paired with number 2 that also has the active ingredient so together they are a dynamic duo. We then send you home with a bottle of the number 3! This little baby keeps the party going in your hair until you see us again. It is used by applying a 50cent piece amount to damp hair (this doesn’t mean you have to wash it first, we recommend putting your hair under the tap to save time) then you leave that baby in for minimum of 10mins, we would recommend up to an hour but you can also leave it in all day and night without any issues for those who are time poor (cough cough ‘mums’) then simply shampoo and condition it out! (there is also a shampoo and conditioner in this range which is the 4 & 5 that I literally made Jen feel my hair when I was showering it is that good, the foaming action on it….OMG
So guys Olaplex isn’t just for blondes but we really feel it is for everybody, if you think about it our hair is made of lots of bonds, to get creative it’s like a ladder, when your hair is subjected to colour, any heat tools, the beach, pools and sun, when we put out hair or go to bed with wet hair, when we comb it vigorously. All these things are breaking those steps in our hair ladder and when there are no steps left what happens? Well that hair goes to god people, it literally breaks off. So Olaplex goes in and repairs those steps, it puts all those steps back into the hair so that ladder is strong again and you can continue to do all those things to your hair and still keep it lush on your head! So, do you now see why it is sooooooo important!
It’s also amazing at softening grey hair as remember that grey hair doesn’t have any colour bonds left so it loses its softness and feels course, by adding Olaplex bonds it helps to take it back to feeling smooth and more manageable. It’s also the be all and end all if you have damaged or dry hair already and are doing everything to repair it, you can drop into the salon and have the step 1 & 2 put on your hair and leave it in all day, when you wash it out, you will come in and snug me you will be so happy! We never have to ‘sell’ Olaplex, simply ask the client next to you what they think of Olaplex as they have been using it for years and they do our job for us, the proof is in the pudding peeps, La Sorella clients have lush hair! So just so you know Olaplex isfree of silicone, sulphates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, gluten and is never tested on animals but please remember Olaplex may be a game changer but it is not a magical wand, we still need to use our professional judgement and wont attempt anything with Olaplex that would create damaged hair, we are healthy hair first and foremost at La Sorella.
