Olaplex is a single active ingredient invented by Dr. Eric Pressly, PHD in materials, and Dr. Craig Hawker, PHD in Chemistry.

Will the bonds that were created eventually break and cause my hair to then break? This question is asked often and the answer is no.

Why is my hair so dry?2018-03-08T14:01:56-08:00

75% of the problem may be caused by water temperature. Washing in cold water is always recommended. Also, conditioner its recommended only for those with long hair. Personally, I only use conditioner on a selection of my clients. Also, diet is also very important. Watching what we eat. For example, milk, vegetables, shellfish can all have affects on your hair.
