Olaplex is making waves—quite literally—in the hairstyling industry, and for good reason. But even though its use in salons all across the country is expanding, many people, consumers and stylists alike, have never heard of it or do not know what it is.

Olaplex is a single-molecule chemical compound originally developed by medical technicians to aid in skin graph surgery. Researchers found that the compound helped the new skin to bind to the original skin seamlessly and healthily, and soon other industries began to pick up on other, more glamorous, uses for Olaplex.

When the hairstyling industry began to use Olaplex, it was originally relied upon as a corrective—“insurance for your client’s hair,” as their tagline reads. Essentially, Olaplex began being used when a client was not happy with their new ‘do. As most people who get their hair done regularly are well aware, constantly making changes and adding new colors, highlights, and more can take a toll on otherwise healthy hair, leaving it dry, brittle, and frail.

If a client is not happy with the work that has been done on their hair, sometimes there is only so much a stylist can do to fix the work without over-processing the hair to the point of damaging it for good. By applying Olaplex, stylists can now correct whatever the client is unhappy with and add new colors and shading without damaging the hair further! Olaplex is a binding agent and a bond multiplier, so rather than fraying hair, it helps it to hold together even under stress.

Once Olaplex began being used as a corrective, it gained rapid popularity as a simple add-on to existing services because of how soft, lightweight, and fluid it leaves your hair looking for a fraction of the cost of other treatments. At Element Salon, adding Olaplex to any service is just , and because it is a bond multiplier and perfecter, it will make whatever service you choose even more flawless and fabulous.
