Olaplex: the science of healthy hair

Written by Rob Peetoom

Give your hair the care it deserves

Olaplex originated from the vision of two scientists, Dr. Eric Pressly and Dr. Craig Hawker. They aspired to revolutionize the approach to hair care. Together, they created a distinct chemical compound, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate, at the heart of Olaplex technology. This compound mends damaged hair bonds, resulting in stronger and healthier hair.

Olaplex offers a range of products to care for your hair. These products help prevent hair breakage, fix damaged hair bonds, and make your hair healthier and stronger. It's great for repairing hair after coloring or for general hair care.
