What is OLAPLEX

What Is OLAPLEX And Why Should You Be Using It? 

OLAPLEX is used by many people to help permanently repair damaged hair from the inside out. With its patented single-ingredient, bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate, it is a one-of-a-kind product that works to restore the broken bonds in your hair. 

 

How Does It Work?

 

This hair-strengthening treatment re-builds the bonds within the hair that are affected by colour treatments, heat damage, sun exposure and so much more.

OLAPLEX says “our hair contains millions of disulfide bonds. These bonds give the hair its structure, strength, and stability. It restores damaged and compromised hair by repairing it from the inside out.” 

With so many steps, the range of products can seem a little daunting at first. That’s why we’ve broken them down for you: 

  • OLAPLEX No.0 – The newest arrival in the collection primes hair for deeper repair with the highest dose of OLAPLEX technology. Use this as a two-part system alongside No.3 for best results.
  • OLAPLEX No.1 & No. 2 – These are exclusive to professionals and only for salon use.
  • OLAPLEX No.3 – This is the product that put it on the map. No.3 is an at-home treatment that visibly reduces breakage and strengthens damaged hair. 
  • OLAPLEX No.4 – No.4 addresses everyday stresses such as damage, split ends and unwanted frizz. Use a regular shampoo to refresh your hair as well as repair it. 
  • OLAPLEX No.5 – Used in conjunction with No.4, OLAPLEX No.5 restores, repairs and hydrates without adding excess weight to the hair. 
  • OLAPLEX No.6 – No.6 is a highly concentrated leave-in smoothing cream, which prevents frizz and flyaways – perfect for all hair types! 
  • OLAPLEX No.7 – An ultra-lightweight, reparative styling oil that dramatically increases shine, adds softness and strength and enhances all hair types and textures.

 

How Can It Help My Hair? 

 

We’re all guilty of not using heat protection when we’re in a rush, or not looking after our colour-treated hair as well as we could do. This product is here to save us from our own laziness. Whether the damage is thermal, mechanical or chemical, OLAPLEX has a product to rebuild the bonds in your hair and bring it right back to health. 

 

Does It Really Work?

 

Take it from the celebs, OLAPLEX is a miracle worker when it comes to revitalising damaged hair. Drew Barrymore herself raved about the amazing results she saw after using it just once. 

“It’s amazing how much your hair changes over the course of your life—it just doesn’t bounce back the same way. But this strengthens my hair in one wash. It’s amazing.”

Heat Damage and How To Avoid It

Hairdryers, curling irons, straighteners – where would we be without them? 

For many of us, these heat-based appliances are inseparable parts of our daily quests to throw together the perfect look, whether we want our locks to sit in tight ringlets, lie flat or demonstrate their natural curls. 

But what of the heat damage associated with the use of these tools and the impact it can have on the strength and health of our hair? 

It’s a sad fact that frequently exposing the hair to extremes of temperature can leave it  brittle and broken, with compromised keratin proteins and a cracked cuticle (the hair’s outer layer) contributing to split ends, dryness and seemingly unmanageable knots and tangles.

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way – heat damage can be avoided, and here’s how!

Be strict with your styling times 

Look, we get it, your hair is important to you, but spending too much time under the blow dryer or with your hair wrapped around your latest styling product only has one outcome: serious heat damage!

Be less absent-minded when you use these tools and keep a check on just how long you’re spending on your look. We’d recommend using things such as curling irons in short, ten-second bursts and ensuring that all of your appliances are always on the lowest heat setting. Your hair will thank you later. 

Heat protection

One of the best arguments we’ve come across for the use of a heat protectant is that it’s the equivalent of making sure you apply sunscreen before leaving the house on a hot day. Simple, right? 

By applying a heat protectant ahead of your hair-styling routine, you’re actively taking steps to reduce your risk of heat damage. This is because the ingredients featured in these products slow down the rate at which your hair conducts heat. 

Remember, though, that these sprays and formulas can only do so much, so you still need to make sure that you’re limiting your usage of heat-based appliances as much as you can. 

Look after your hair 

It’s been suggested that heat damage is much more of a possibility should you fail to properly look after your hair on a day-to-day basis, and this is something that should go without saying.

The use of shampoos and conditioners that feature sulphates and parabens has been identified as a major factor in the development of dry, lacklustre-looking hair – a departure into brittleness that can only be exacerbated by the application of heat to already-damaged locks.

Avoid this by switching to hair-washing products that are free of these destructive ingredients. There are plenty of these out there. 

Go heat-free! 

By far and away the best method of beating heat damage is to swear off heating appliances altogether. Sound like too much to handle? It really isn’t. 

Though they may be more time-consuming (you have time, there’s a lockdown on!), you could use more “primitive” tools such as curlers and rollers to help you achieve your hair goals, not to mention the plethora of styles that can be put together with minimal accessories: braids and updos, anyone?  

It should also be obvious by now that our extensive range of hair extensions can also provide a great alternative to heat-styled hair. These are made from 100% human hair and can be added and removed in an instant, giving you the chance to embrace a new style at will!

No Damage Hair Extensions

How to: Hairstyles!

Over the last month we’ve seen a huge change in the world. With the entire country on lockdown, it seems as though we’re all already running out of things to do and looking for new ways to keep us entertained. 

Here at Flip-In Hair, we have already seen a huge increase in self-care while we remain on lockdown for the foreseeable future, so we thought we’d share some of our favourite hairstyles to help keep you feeling and looking your best, while keeping you busy during this uncertain time.

Braided Bun

What you’ll need:

  • Bobby pins
  • Flip-In Ponytail
  • Mini hair elastic bands

Technique:

Put your hair into a low ponytail and secure your Flip-In Ponytail around it, fastening the hooks into place. 

Plait the hair into a braid and secure with one of your elastic bands. 

Twist the braid around the base of your ponytail and secure with some of your bobby pins.

Easy Deep Waves

What you’ll need:

  • Hair clip
  • Flip-In Hair Extensions
  • Curling iron
  • Paddle brush
  • Hairspray
  • Hair oil

Technique: 

Fit your Flip-In Hair Extensions in your chosen length and colour.

Use a hair clip (or bands) to separate your hair into sections. 

Start curling your hair in inch wide segments, keeping the curls tight. 

To get a Hollywood wave, curl all of the segments in the same direction. For a more natural wave, curl the segments in different directions. 

Leave the tight curls to cool down and then spray with your chosen brand of hairspray. 

Using your paddle brush, brush out the tight curls. 

Keep brushing until you have your ideal level of curl. 

Use a small amount of hair oil and run through your hair to tame any flyaways and give your hair that perfect shine!

Fishtail Plait

What you’ll need:

  • Mini elastic band
  • Flip-In Hair Extensions or Ponytail
  • Hairspray 

Technique:

Flip in your Extensions and bring your hair to one side. 

*Part the hair in two sections – right and left. 

Take a section of hair from the back of the left-hand section of hair and pull it over the top to join the right-hand section of your hair.

Repeat this instruction with the right-hand section of your hair, this is the start of a fishtail plait. 

Repeat this process until you have a finished braid!

*To create this look with the Flip-In Ponytail, start by securing your hair into a low ponytail to one side, fasten the Ponytail extension by securing the hooks. To make the Ponytail look more natural, wrap a small piece of hair around the base and secure with a bobby pin. 

Now you can start braiding your hair as explained in the above steps!
