3 Reasons To Add Repair Insurance To Blonding Services

By now you know bond repair treatments seal split ends, fix damage and improve manageability—but could you be getting those results with less time? Enter Eric Pressly, Ph. D., an inventor and scientist of OLAPLEX, who is re-entering the hair space with a new one-step bond repair treatment. Learn how to use this add-on to transform your clients’ damaged hair while their color develops. 


Yes, This Extra Step Shortens Appointment Times

Wait, what? Sounds like an oxymoron, but just two pumps of epres™ Professional Bond Repair means you spend less time at the backbar (than you would with other add-ons) and more time focused on your clients’ results. Here’s how it works:


  1. Create your client’s custom formulation.
  2. Add two pumps of the Professional Bond Repair and mix!
  3. Apply the lightener, color or gloss and rinse as normal.
  4. Hair is instantly smoother and the treatment continues to repair hours after it’s rinsed and styled.

The Color Of Bond Repair Formulas Matter, Here’s Why:

Mixing pigmented chemicals in with color formulas can alter pH levels, leave unwanted residue on the hair and impact end results. Thankfully, epres™ Professional Bond Repair is clear, lightweight and acid-free meaning you don’t have to choose between repairing bonds and the perfect developed color. 

What’s more? The absence of amino acids (found in some other bond building treatments) means there’s no chance of protein overload AKA further damage. There’s simply no overdoing it.

Formulated with only four ingredients, epres™ is the only treatment on the market that uses Biodiffusion™ technology, enabling it to continue transforming the hair to be stronger and healthier long after it dries.

Here’s when to put epres™ Professional Bond Repair to work:

  • In-foil services
  • Freehand balayages
  • Global toners and lighteners


Pro Tip: Spritz epres™ at-home Bond Repair Treatment between sections and the hair that is left out so the whole head gets treated! “When processing color that isn’t on the full head of hair, use the at-home treatment on the parts of the hair that aren’t being color treated while the rest is processing. This allows the full head of hair to be treated,” says Samantha Harman (@samanthasbeautyconfessions).
