So what is Olaplex? Olaplex is an amazing series of three products that work to repair and prevent damage to your hair that occurs during the coloring process. It is not a conditioner that will just coat the hair, there is truly nothing else like it. It is a safe, non-toxic  product created by two chemists that actually works with the chemistry of hair. The only way to deposit color or lighten hair is by breaking the bonds that hold in your natural color. The lighter you go the more destructive the process can be. The Olaplex treatment actually links these bonds back together, rebuilding hair and making it stronger and healthier no matter how light you go or how often you color.

  • Haircolor can help create texture. Smart color placement can help hair look thicker and more voluminous – ideal for fine hair.
  • Haircolor can bring on a big change or small change. From demi-permanent to permanent, the range of options help you get just what you want. 
  • Haircolor has different levels of commitment. Talk to your stylist about how often you are comfortable with coming back to the salon and she can choose the best option for your needs.

  • Haircolor can change your look...and your mood! If what you see in the mirror no longer thirlls you, go to the salon and have a consultation. Talk about what you like and don't like, what you have in mind or simply trust your stylist to try something new. It's less expensive than a shopping trip to the nearest mall!
  • Haircolor can make you feel and look good. The right shades can compliment your skin tone and help make you look - and feel- healthier and happier.
  • Haircolor won't break your bank! You can achieve a subtle result or a major change with a moderate investment (epeically compared to that shopping trip!). 

  • Haircolor adds shine to dull hair so it looks younger and healthier.
  • Haircolor can keep you fashionable. Whether you are a blonde, brunette or redhead, haircolor follows seasonal trends. Redken offers haircolor combinations inspired by the runway so your stylist will be able to offer you the latest fashion looks.

  • Bring your inspiration: Photographs and examples of haircolor you love will help you and your stylist explore your color options - and ensure you both mean the same thing when you say, "honey blonde," or "scarlet red."
  • Know your history: Be prepared to tell your stylist about any prior color or texture services, whether it was highlights last year, a color gloss last month, or a straightening service three months ago.
  • Trust your Stylist: Listen to your stylist's expert opinion. During your color consultation, she will consider your desired result, then evaluate your hair's condition and look at your eye color and skin tone to create your custom color formulation.
  • Ask questions: If you hear a color term you don't understand, don't hesitate to ask your stylist to explain. Remember to inquire about maintenance - how often you'll need to return to the salon for touch-ups and how to keep your color vibrant between salon visits with the right Redken haircare products.


Read through these common haircolor terms so you know the “lingo” and can improve communication with your stylist.

Contrast: Contrast is a value applied to highlights. High-contrast highlights are much lighter than the surrounding hair and provid a dramatic look. Lower contrast highlights result in a more natural look.

Cool: Cool is a tonal value that can apply to blonde, brunette, and red shades. A color is said to have “cool tones” if it tends toward blue or violet. Cool colors include platinum blondes, ash browns and plum reds.

Coverage: Coverage is a measure of a haircolor’s ability to cover gray. Some haircolor formulations are too transparent to effectively cover gray hair. Redken Color Gels Permanent Conditioning Haircolor provide exceptional gray coverage with resistance to fading.

Decolorizing: Decolorizing is the process of removing natural or artificial haircolor with a lightener (bleach) such as Redken’s Blonde Icing Conditioning Cream Lightener. This is the first step in a double-process service.

Demi-permanent haircolor: Demi-permanent haircolor delivers incredible color, shine, and condition to hair with little or no lightening of the natural pigment. They do not remove or lift color. They are ideal if you want to enrich your natural color, brighten dullness, or refresh previously colored hair. Redken’s Shades EQ Equalizing Conditioning Color Gloss is a demi-permanent haircolor.

Dimension: Dimension is a function of the range of tones in your hair. A head of hair that is all one color is said to be “flat” or lacking dimension. Your stylist can add dimension to your hair with highlights or lowlights.

Double-process: A double-process haircolor technique is used to achieve dramatic color changes, such as going from very dark to very light hair. First, the hair is lightened with a decolorizer. Then the new color is deposited on the hair.

Gloss: A color gloss, such as Redken Shades EQ, delivers shiny color with no ammonia. It is a demi-permanent color.

Highlights: Highlighting hair means isolating select strands in the hair and treating them with a haircolor, lightener or toner. Highlights can add dimension by contrasting with the rest of the hair and are created with foils, a cap or special combs or brushes used for “painting on” the color.

Lift: Lift is the chemical process of lightening the color of the hair. Different haircolor formulations have different lifting abilities.

Lightener: A lightener is a lifting agent – it lightens the color of the hair. Bleaching, decolorizing, and lightening are all terms used interchangeably by stylists to describe the lifting process.

Lowlights: Adding darker strands to the hair to balance a too light look. Lowlights are typically created with foils, caps, or combs. The effect complements the natural color and can add dimension to your hair.

Over-processed: Hair that has been over-processed via bleaching, straightening, or other services can be porous and challenging to color. If your hair is over-processed, your stylist may suggest you choose pre-treatments and a gentle color product such as Redken Shades EQ.

Permanent haircolor: Permanent haircolor does not wash out. It can be used to achieve subtle or dramatic color changes, to lighten hair, and to color hair that is up to 100% gray. Redken Color Fusion Advanced Performance Color Cream is a permanent haircolor that provides long-lasting, health-looking results with beautiful color dimension.

Porosity: Your hair’s porosity determines how it will absorb color. Hair that is very porous, due to over-processing or other chemical exposures such as swimming, will absorb color more readily.

Redken Certified Haircolorist: Redken Certified Haircolorists provide top-notch service and guarantee exceptional haircolor results. Members of this elite group are recognized for their expertise and commitment to excellence.

Single-process: Single-process haircolor will permanently transform your hair in one application – there is no separate decolorizing step, versus double-process haircolor. Single-process haircolor is generally used to boost or lighten natural color and to cover gray.

Semi-permanent haircolor: Designed to last through five to seven shampoos, depending on the processing time selected and the porosity of the hair, semi-permanent colors do not lighten hair. Redken does not offer a semi-permanent haircolor product.

Texture: Texture, as defined by the diameter of an individual hair strand, is generally described as fine, medium, or coarse. Your stylist will factor in your hair’s texture when determining your best color formulation.

Tone: Tone, in haircoloring, is the term used to describe a specific color – “golden” blonde, “coppery” red, “ash” brown. Colors are divided into warm tones and cool tones.

Warm: Warm is a tonal value that can apply to blonde, brunette, and red shades. A color is said to have “warm tones” if it tends toward yellow or red. Warm colors include golden blondes, auburn brunettes, and coppery reds.
