The Olaplex patented technology began in a Santa Barbara garage by two scientists who never worked in the hair industry.
In 2014, they invented the Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate ingredient, a solution to damage-free hair! This particular ingredient has a bond multiplying technology, meaning during a chemical service or treatment the Olaplex products have the ability to repair damaged hair.
Today, Olaplex is one of the largest independent hair care brands in the world with over 100 worldwide patents. The Olaplex brand is constantly paving the way for a completely new category of haircare called “bond-building."
A Bond Building Science
The Olaplex patented active chemistry works at a molecular level to repair damaged and broken bonds.
All hair types begin with paired and aligned disulfide bonds. However, when hair is damaged through chemical, environmental, or thermal factors these bonds are broken, resulting in single sulfur hydrogen bonds.
A single sulfur hydrogen bond will in turn pair with three oxygen molecules producing S03. This sulfate group is known as Cysteic Acid, this acid eats the protein out of your hair!
In the case of chemical services, the bonds in OLAPLEX work by pairing with the single sulfur hydrogen bonds quicker than the three oxygen molecules are able to.
