TUTORIAL: OLAPLEX AS A CUTTING LOTION WITH RAMIREZ TRAN STYLIST, BUDDY PORTER!

August 09, 2016 2 min read

Your haircuts may never be the same again… and you won’t want them to be. Using Olaplex as a cutting lotion is what we like to call a “Mini Treatment” and it happens to be one of our favorite off the grid ways to use Olaplex. This service is perfect for your clients on the go– no mater what their hair type is. Olaplex works on ALL hair types from virgin, fine, textured, to highly compromised.

Using Olaplex as a cutting lotion allows you to rebuild the broken disulfide bonds in the hair while cutting by using the No. 2 as a mini treatment. It’s also a fabulous way to introduce your client to Olaplex for the first time. Everyone’s hair could use some extra loving, right?

Hair Stylist Buddy Porter of the Ramirez Tran Salon in Beverly Hills demonstrates how he uses this mini No. 2 treatment in his haircuts step by step below!

The first thing you need to do is ensure your client has clean hair. Dirty hair with product or oil build up can act as a barrier for Olaplex. In this case in particular, Buddy’s client had product build up, so he gave her a light shampoo.

Towel dry the hair.

Apply Olaplex No. 2 on the towel-dried damp hair.

Evenly distribute a generous amount of the No. 2 throughout the hair.

Comb the product through to ensure even distribution.

Cut the hair AND rebuild broken disulfide bonds in the hair at the SAME time!

After the cut, ensure sure you shampoo the Olaplex out, then follow with a conditioner.
