What is a Keraplex hair treatment, and how does it work?
In the UK more and more people talking about Keraplex hair and wondering is it work, and what’re the differences to a usual keratin treatment?
Keraplex is a hybrid treatment a combination of two amazing stand-alone services:
Using two unique treatments, which improves the hair condition so much we left with long lasting beautiful hair for months.
What are the two treatments in Keraplex?
Olaplex is a bond building treatment, it strengthens your hair internally it’s only a few years old technology which allows it te repair and reconnects broken sulphate bonds in the hair. It works amazingly as an added to technical services e.g. bleaching and colour or perms and straightening.

The treatment combination works and can improve hair condition. I personally find that doing the treatments first an Olaplex Bond Building then any type of Keratin treatment will give you better results as your hair will be stronger, and in better condition. My costumers saying that in some ways it extends the results of the keratin treatment.
Nowadays I tend to separate the treatments and only offer Keraplex or Zolaplex when my costumers do not have time to visit the salon regurlalry. If they are able to make two separate visits first for a Keratin treatment and then a stand alone Olaplex treatment I find that results are slightly better. It is important that there are some Keratin treatments if Olaplex applied after the Keratin treatment it does need a few weeks wait for Oleplex to be able to penetrate to the hair properly.
It is important that we apply Olplex first and Keratin treatment second, there are some Keratin treatments if Olaplex applied after the Keratin treatment it does need a few weeks wait for Oleplex to be able to penetrate to the hair properly.
To perform the Keraplex treatment it usually takes around 3/4 hour longer than your usual Keratin treatment. My Zolaplex adds around 1 hour and 15 minutes to the Keratin treatment time. The treatment lasts as long as the Keratin treatments do. Depending on the hair it is recommended in some cases to repeat an Olaplex treatment before the next Keraplex treatment.
Note to US readers:
There is also a US company called Keraplex Inc producing a Keratin treatment called Keraplex which does not contain bond building or Olaplex. I have never tested or tried the product so I am unable to comment on the quality and the results achieved by this treatment.
