I Ran Out of No. 1 Before No. 2

If you find that you are going through No. 1 faster than No.2, please see tips below:

Make sure that you are generously applying No.2 during the treatment and after all services. Hair should be thoroughly saturated. Comb through to ensure even distribution.

Offer your client a mini treatment using No.2 at the shampoo bowl, combing through and leaving on a minimum of 10-20 minutes. (without diluted No.1).

When processing a clients base only, you can use No.2 from midshaft to ends as this will allow a longer processing time. The longer the treatment is on, the more effective it is. This can be used to prep the client for a double process.

Use No.2 as a cutting lotion. This is a great way to introduce your non-color or non-chemical process clients to Olaplex.

When using direct dyes, Olaplex No.2 may be used to dilute down in place of clear or conditioner. This also allows the treatment to be on for a longer period of time.
