I decided to review Olaplex as a product used when colouring hair, particularly pre lightening.
I had not used it before, however, I did hear great things about how it restores the broken bonds in the hair giving it back its bounce and natural movement.
I decided it was time I used it and made the investment. I used it on pre lightened hair that needed to be re done and the results were great!
I used Olaplex No1 added to the bleach, (lightener), I then used Olaplex No2 after rinsing the bleach out I left it on for 5 minutes . This resulted in the hair being softer, shinier with no breakage what so ever. So I can gladly recommend it to use on your clients.
You will need to charge for this service as the product itself is expensive although you do not need a lot of it for fantastic results!
You can use this on any chemical service, However, I have yet to use it whilst perming. I strongly recommend this product especially on previously damaged hair see the results below.
In my experience, when I first meet a new trainee the first thing they ask is “when am I going to cut hair”?
My answer to them is “You will be cutting hair from the first day of your training usually on a training block to start with, practice makes perfect! There is a technique to learn just to hold the scissors correctly so the sooner you practice the sooner you will be working on your clients”.
You have the talent and the passion, now you need the knowledge and the skills.
I 100% believe that any trainee that wants a career in hairdressing has the talent and passion already within their psyche. Therefore, my passion is to impart what I have learned and what I know to help each and every one of you to become the best you can be.
The rest is up to you. Be creative and use your skills and passion and you will soon be on your way to being a professional hairdresser.
This site is a new project and I will be offering online courses to help you understand all the topics that will nurture your journey through this wonderful creative career. The one thing you can be assured of is that people will always need a haircut. You may well think that the market is saturated with hairdressers and barbers, however, you unique creativity will attract the right clients to you and there are plenty to go around.
