To answer that question I need to give you a quick hair lesson. Picture your hair strand as a ladder. The outside rails are what you see on the outside. The rungs that you step on are what holds it together. Your hair is made up of disulfide bonds. That is two sulfer molecules linked together like the rungs of the ladder. Lots of everyday thing break those bonds: wind, sun, hot irons, hair color. And some things break a lot of those bonds: high lift color, bleach and permanent waves. The only thing olaplex does is permanantly relink those bonds, repairing your ladder. I did say permanantly but if you continue to do whatever it was that broke them in the first place you can break them again.
Olaplex has a simple at home 5 step process that includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair, or add it to another service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.
