WHAT IS SMARTBOND?

SMARTBOND is L’Oréal Professionnel’s new smart ingredient added to your colour to minimise any potential damage & protect your hair. SMARTBOND is designed to protect the bonds deep within the hair & strengthen them during colouring & lightening processes, resulting in hair that is stronger, softer, and shinier.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

SMARTBOND is a two-step process which allows the colourist to protect the hair & prevent damage during a technical service.

  • SMARTBOND Step 1 contains maleic acid which works smartly during the chemical process, it limits the oxidative stress and preserves the strong bonds & captures the ions and allows the reconstruction of the weak bonds.
  • SMARTBOND Step 2 is applied to the hair once the colour or pre-lightener is removed as a pre-shampoo. It also contains maleic acid which continues to capture the ions to allow the weaker bonds to reform. It contains a blend of ceramides & polymers to provide condition & shine to the hair.
  • SMARTBOND customers can re-inforce the in salon service with Step 3, an at home conditioner (RRP £16.49) that continuously strengthens the fibre week after week, allowing you to keep the outstanding salon result simply at home by using once a week for 1-3 minutes.

OLAPLEX

SHARE
 

A REVOLUTIONARY NEW SERVICE

When a new ‘hair miracle’ appears we tend to be critical and wait to see results before introducing a new service. After hearing about the much hyped OLAPLEX earlier this year we tested the service on our stylists and have been exceedingly impressed with the results.

THE SCIENCE

OLAPLEX is a ‘bond perfecting solution’ which basically acts as scaffolding for your hair. The solution contains one active ingredient designed to reconnect the disulphide sulphur bonds which tend to be broken down by hair colouring and thermal styling. OLAPLEX is free from silicones, parabens, oils and aldehydes.

WHAT’S USED

For hair that has been compromised chemically or thermally, the OLAPLEX BOND MULTIPLIER is the first step used by your Stylist. The Bond Multiplying System rebuilds the strength, structure and integrity to the point where a colour or chemical service would be feasible once again. This may be done before and/or after a chemical service and is compatible with all hair types from virgin to extremely compromised chemically treated hair.

The next step used by your Stylist is OLAPLEX BOND PERFECTOR, this is used to link the remaining disulfide bonds before and after service restoring the strength, structure and integrity of the hair.

The OLAPLEX service will add approximately 15-30 minutes to your appointment time.

THE SALON SERVICE

OLAPLEX SINGLE WITH COLOUR £30

OLAPLEX DUO £50 (when Olaplex is used in more than once in an appointment, effectively a ‘double’ shot of Olaplex)

OLAPLEX can be used in conjunction with pretty much every salon service from highlights to Keratin Smoothing and hair extensions.
