There’s a very exciting launch from Revolution, and it’s the new Revolution Plex Hair Collection. From the name, it’s very obvious that this collection is ‘inspired’ by Olaplex. If you’d like to find out more about this Revolution Plex Hair Collection, please keep on reading..
Olaplex is a very pricey, salon quality haircare range which has been designed to noticeably repair extreme damaged hair. Many hair care products can leave the skin looking repaired, and in better condition, but there are truthfully very few hair care products which will actually repair damaged hair.
Products can contain a lot of silicone, to coat the hairs to reduce the appearance of breakage, or damage, but Olaplex has been proved to repair extreme damaged hair, and is a recommendation for those that have had hair disasters or heat related damage.
With Olaplex the products are all numbered to give you an idea of where to use them within your haircare routine, or what they offer in terms of benefits. For example the Olaplex No7 Bonding Oil is a finishing product, but there’s shampoo, conditioner, treatments and more.
Each Olaplex product is £26 each, and it’s a pricey haircare system. The Revolution Plex Hair Collection includes four different products right now, but I completely expect the brand to launch more products to the Revolution Plex Hair Collection as they’re numbered 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Each of the four Revolution Plex Hair Collection products are £10, but they have an introductory deal where you can get all four products for £28 as a special bundle. £10 for one Revolution haircare product is pricey, but the claims are bold.
“Revolution Plex Hair Collection has been expertly formulated to target different layers of the hair fibre helping to restore and strengthen damage from within.“
The Revolution Plex Hair Collection is said to utilise a protein cascade system, and all four products are packaged within white plastic bottles with the numbers clearly labelled on them, so you know which product is which.
Just like Olaplex, the bottles are very similar, so it’s hard to tell them apart, but the numbers make it easier, once you know which number represents each step within the haircare routine.
Revolution’s Plex triple molecular weight protein cascade system targets different layers of the hair fibre helping to repair and strengthen damage from within.
“The Plex range not only contains the triple weight molecular protein system, but each formulation has been expertly formulated to provide the best ingredients for the hair. The protein system is made from three different types of plant protein that have been selected to target different parts of the hair fibre.
The power combination of Phytantriol and Provitamin B5 work to keep hair hydrated and healthy, whilst a blend of conditioning agents help to soften and smooth the hair.
Use step 3,4,5 and 6 as a routine to give your hair the love it needs; restores, increases strength, conditions, enhances shine, reduces frizz.“
A restoring and conditioning treatment to use before shampooing
A deep and gentle cleansing shampoo to hydrate and care for stressed hair
A conditioner to deeply nourish your hair
Protect your hair with this heat protection styling cream whilst helping to reduce frizz
So they are the four products within the Revolution Plex Hair Collection. I’m interested to read the reviews of paying customers, to see what they think, especially if they’ve tried the original Olaplex so they draw true comparisons.
It’s easy for someone to sit there and say “it’s a dupe” just because it has ‘plex’ in the name, but nobody will know if it’s a true dupe unless they’ve tried both versions.
Revolution have dabbled in shampoo and conditioner in 2015, with ranges for kids and everything, and it wasn’t great. So I for one, will keep an eye out for true customer reviews ahead of purchasing the collection.
