We have a new trick up our sleeves to help go lighter with out the damaging effects bleach is known to have. It is a new product to the salon scene and we are insanely excited about it. The results that Olaplex produce are astounding. It was developed by the chemist Craig Hawker. Hawker is a nationally recognized scientist, his research group is focused on molecular engineering, specifically as it applies to biomaterial and energy.
“Basically, when you put chemicals in the hair — from coloring, or peroxide developers, or straightening treatments — the sulfur bonds split, and they then become sulfur hydrogen." This process can eat away at the hair proteins, which causes damage. Olaplex prevents the splitting from happening. In short, "It links [together] broken bonds in the hair caused by chemical processes...preventing them from damage." Studio Chavarria is one of the only salons in Asheville to provide the new amazing formula of Olaplex. It is an amazing way to achieve drastic color change with out the damage.
