What is Keraplex hair treatment?

What is a Keraplex hair treatment, and how does it work?

To read and find out a little more about Olaplex Bond Building technologie click here .

The treatment combination works. It does work 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 a better results as your hair will be stronger.

Today I prefer to separate the treatments and only offer Keraplex or Zolaplex when my costumers only able to visit once. 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 better. It is important that there are some Keratin treatments, where if Olaplex applied after the the Keratin treatment it does need a few weeks wait for Oleplex to be able to penetrate to the hair properly.


In the UK more and more people talking about Keraplex hair and wondering is it work, and whats the differences to a usual keratin treatment?

I have launched Zolaplex just after launching Olaplex a year ago in beginning of 2016 which is the technically same treatment people known today  (in the UK) as Keraplex hair treatment.

It is a combined treatment of two services:

stand alone Olaplex treatment

and after a Keratin treatment


To perform the Keraplex treatment it is usually takes around 3/4 hour longer then your usual Keratin treatment. My Zolaplex adds around 1 hour and 15 minutes to the Keratin treatment time. The treatment last as long as the Keratin treatments does.  Depending on the hair it is recommended in some cases to repeat an Olaplex treatment before the next Kera or Zola plex.

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.

The 10 Sleekest Hair Texture Looks From London Fashion Week SS 2017

The 10 Sleekest Hair Texture Looks From London Fashion Week SS 2017

The 10 Sleekest Hair Looks From London Fashion Week SS17

We turn to London Fashion Week for the latest hair inspiration. Featuring the spring/summer 2017 collections meant hair was left appearing quite natural, tresses needed to have a healthy shine and have some movement on the runway.

This season the fringe dominated the catwalk. The hair fell either right below or right above the modelseyebrows and the weight was on point it wasnt too whispy or too thick there were no stringy, greasy fringes here, it was pure gloss. To get the look, we offer fringe straightening (check it out here.)

See the sleekest hairstyles seen on London Fashion Week runways, we have rounded up everything from Burberry to J.W, Anderson.


J.W. Anderson.



It was all about the centre part. Hair was either left straight, had a very natural wave to it, or was slicked back into a ponytail. Overall the hair didnt detract from the clothes, it was effortless and thats why its a winner.




J.W. Anderson mastered the fringe in his intimate show. For the girls who didnt have the crowning cut, the hair was parted to the side and it fell slightly to the side to mock side bangs.





The models hair cascaded over her shoulder as she laid down posing for Faustine Steinmetzs presentation. The shiny hair was about as light reflecting as the Swarovski crystals adorning the garments.







Mary Katrantzous glossy locks had movement on her runway. The centre part formed a curtain of

hair around the models face, and her locks were blown backwards from the power of her strut.






Dorothy skipping down the yellow brick road with her embarrassing child-like pigtails had nothing on the girls on Emilia Wicksteads yellow catwalk. Their lightweight effortlessly wavy hair freely bounced behind them as they walked.





The hair was secured back behind the models ears, drawing attention to the big summer shades veiling their eyes. Parted to the side, you could see the hair was carefully brushed into its smooth streamlined shape.




The lovely Liv Tyler was at Belstaffs London Fashion Week presentations to present the new Belstaff x Liv Tyler capsule collection. All the girls modelling, including Liv Tyler, donned glamorous silky waves.




Despite the number of times we saw a fringe and the eu natural tresses this season, Mulberry managed to make the look appear fresh. Even with a fringe the hair tucked was tucked behind just one of the girls ears, making here appear quite youthful. The key here was the barely there makeup. Wearing heavier makeup with a fringe can quickly turn your from school girl to vixen.




The modelshair hung straight down their backs to revealing their collar bones in the off-the-shoulder blouses. The naturally shiny, wavy hair looked, wellnatural, which isnt always so easy to accomplish.


Goldie Locks would be jealous of the brilliant blonde manes on Antonio Berardi’s spring runway – you can’t help but imagine the sun catching the girls’ glossy hair!

Skin test before perm, hair smoothing or hair straightening

In the past few years the UK hairdressers heard a lot of the importance of skin testing before all colour applications. Major manufacturers and the federation have asked the colour technicians to skin test 48 hours before every colour application. L’Oreal launched a website to promote skin testing before colouring services.

I was wondering if there are any regulations for skin testing before perming, smoothing or straightening the services what I offer.


I’ve checked with most major manufacturers in the UK and they do not recommend skin testing pre perm, smoothing or straightening services. After calling the National Hairdressing Federation they advised that they don’t recommend to carry or don’t carry out a skin test pre perm, pre smoothing or pre straightening appointments, however they strongly advise to contact the manufacturer to clarify their requirements.

Just in case I spoke to my lawyer who said I have to check with my insurers and see their requirements. My insurers do not need me to carry out a skin test prior the services I offer.



If you a hairstylist I would recommend you to check manufacturers instructions and your insurers requirements regarding the need of carrying out skin testing prior perming, smoothing or straightening services. If you a customer and wish to have a skin test you should freely ask your technician.


To carry out the Allergy Alert Test, always follow the instructions supplied with your product.


Remove earrings. Behind the ear and using a cotton bud, apply a small quantity of unmixed product /solution 1 and neutraliser in separate area/ product sufficient to cover an area of 1-2cm² (e.g. the size of a small coin).
Re-apply two or three times allowing it to dry between each application. Carefully reseal the product container and keep it for the application 48 hours later.
Leave for 48 hours without washing, covering or touching.
If during this period you notice any abnormal reactions, such as itching, redness or swelling in or around the test area, DO NOT APPLY THE PRODUCT.

IN CASE OF A REACTION DURING THE APPLICATION such as intense stinging, irritation, rash or burning sensation on the scalp, rinse immediately and discontinue use. If you experience shortness of breath, seek immediate medical attention. Before perming / straightening your hair again, consult a doctor.
IF, DURING THE DAYS FOLLOWING APPLICATION, itching, redness or, spots on the scalp or skin occurs, swelling of the eyes and/or face, blisters or oozing of the scalp and/or skin occurs, it is recommended that you consult a doctor.

“My greatest achievement was that I was the first person to perform successfully the Yuko hair straightening on afro-Caribbean hair”

At Yuko salon, Zoltan really came in to form and trained up to be an expert in hair shaping and texture. It was here where Zoltan became the first person to successfully perform the Yuko hair straightening technique on afro-Caribbean hair, no had previously done this.
