We love a new product launch at Salon Promotions, and the brand new Olaplex No.0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment has got us all really excited! Our team joined the Olaplex education team for an amazing online training session. They also answered many of the questions we've been asked from stylists about this new product.
What is Olaplex No.0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment?
Much like skincare and makeup, most products work best with a primer. Eye-shadow sits best and lasts longer when put on top of an eye-shadow primer, and makeup sits better on the face after a solid skincare routine. Think of Olaplex No.0 as the primer to your No.3 treatment. No.0 can certainly works on it's own and will provide repair; however, the product is intended to work as a two-part process. OLAPLEX technology works best when the product is wet in the hair. No.0 is a watery liquid that will dry quickly. Using No.3 over it, keeps the hair damp so both products can continue to work during the process.
Does Olaplex No.0 & No.3 replace the in-salon Stand Alone Olaplex Treatment?
The answer to this is no. It is an additional retail product and a “stand alone treatment” for your client to do at home to maintain optimal results.
Can a client buy Olaplex No.0 if they didn’t have a stand alone treatment?
Absolutely. Whether they had an in salon service or not, Olaplex No.0 is going to help with repairing the hair. Consider offering it as part of your colour correction consultation. Your client can do their Hair Homework and start the repairing process ready for you to start a big colour/bleach appointment. Factor this into your price of a colour correction to ensure the hair will be at at the best it can be.
If a client already uses No.3 why would No.0 benefit them?
No.0 has the same active ingredient that's in Olaplex No.1 (only available in the Intro Kit & Stylist Kit) but less of it. No.0 & No.3 is 68% more powerful than using just No.3 on its own and has been proven to leave the hair 3x stronger than just using No.3 alone.
Can clients sleep with No.0&No.3 in their hair?
Yes, just ensure that you follow the instructions and leave No.0 on the hair for at least 10 minutes before applying No.3. Once they have done this, as long as the hair is secured away from the face in a wrap, then there is no reason why they cannot keep it in overnight.
Will the bonus mini No.3 always be included with the No.0?
No - this is a limited time offer to really drive salon retail sales. It will only be included in the first launch globally.
Each bottle of No.0 contains approximately 4-6 uses, just like the No.3. No.0 is non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free. It's also: Paraben Free, Phosphate Free, Phthalate Free, Sulfate Free, Gluten Free, Aldehydes Free, DEA Free, Aldehydes Free, and Formaldehyde Free.
