It’s all about Olaplex, a three stage treatment which hydrates, repairs and strengthens your hair against the damaging secondary effects of highlights and hair dryers. What makes it different from other products, is that the effects of Olaplex are more long-lasting. The treatment penetrates up to your roots, and lasts for more than a month and a half.

This is because its principle active ingredient works on a molecular level, eliminating the negative reaction of oxygen with sulfur bonds in thermally or chemically altered hair. However, it is important to take into account that this is not a conditioner, so it does not contain silicon, proteins or animal products.

The first two steps of application must be done by a professional in a specialized beauty centre, on dry and unwashed hair. Once ready, the first bottle marked with a No.1, is mixed with water and distributed through the hair during coloring or discoloration, whichever you are doing.

Bottle No.2, part of the repairing formula, is then immediately added and left to work its magic for 20 minutes before being rinsed out. You can get the Olaplex Salon into Kit for Professional Use, which includes a bottle of Nº1, two of Nº2 and its applicator, for $250.

Lastly, step Nº3 is much more simple to apply. It is a hydrator that you can apply at home once a week before washing your hair. Since it’s not a greasy or oily cream, you can even leave it on for 24 hours before washing it out. That’s what Kim does!

According to experts, the final step is just as valuable as the first two because the constant maintenance of your hair will influence its nutrition and vitality. This bottle, which is often sold separately, can be found in Walmart for $29.99.
