Maybe you've always wanted to go blonde, brunette or even purple but were told that your hair is too fine, too thin or too damaged to do so. Don't give up on your dreams just yet. There are a variety of methods and techniques that can enable you to get those shades without the damage, including a relatively new method, Olaplex. Olaplex is a great technology for those who like to frequently change their hair color.
What Should I Do First?
Your first step is to seek out a stylist you trust, then meet to discuss exactly the look you desire. This will allow your stylist to plan ahead and determine how much time will be needed for the appointment.
Next, strip out as much old color as you can before the appointment. Use a clarifying shampoo, and lather and rinse twice each time you wash your hair. Follow that with a deep conditioner to offset the drying effects of extra shampooing.
The healthiest way to go is by lightening your hair gradually, which will lessen the risk of broken and brittle hair. And that's where Olaplex can come in.
Olaplex is a hair repair treatment that has become extremely popular in the hair-care community, especially among those who have damaged hair from excess bleach. Olaplex can be used as a separate treatment or can be mixed in with coloring products to limit damage to your hair. The treatment is often referred to as a bond multiplier that prevents damage to your hair during and after coloring.

The active ingredient in Olaplex, bis-aminopropyl diglyced dimaleate, can repair disulfide bonds in a single strand of hair. It can even be used as a regeneration treatment.
Olaplex basically consists of three treatments:
