THE SCIENCE OF pH Plex
LET’S START WITH THE BASICS. WHAT IS HAIR?
Hair is comprised of proteins that are long-chain molecules made up of amino acids. Amino acids are essentially the building blocks of hair. There are up to 21 different amino acids in every strand. Keratin is a key protein and forms the structure of hair.
SO WHAT DOES THIS REALLY MEAN?
Well, in order to understand how pH Plex works, it’s helpful to know what hair is made of. pH Plex works from the molecular level to rebuild and protect hair by bonding to each of the amino acids that make up each strand, compared to our competitors who only bond to 1 amino acid. That’s a huge difference and that’s also what makes pH Plex such a superior product.
HOW DOES pH Plex REBUILD & PROTECT HAIR?
Hair can be damaged in many ways; it can be damaged by chemical treatments like bleaching and coloring, by overstyling with prolonged use of hot tools, and normal environmental stressors. Malic acid, the main active ingredient in pH Plex reconnects the broken/damaged amino acids in every strand. Think of it like zipping up a zipper. Our formulas repair from the inside out to create strong, healthy, luminous hair and with regular use, pH Plex prevents future damage.
HOW pH Plex WORKS
It was our goal to make pH Plex safe and easy to use for all hair types and textures. Each sachet is pre-measured so you can’t use too much or too little. Our formulas are professional-grade and designed for at-home use.
Step 1 was developed to be a perfect match to the pH in hair color, bleach, and relaxer. This means you won’t experience any change in the color nor will you have to add any other chemicals to your mixture.
Step 1 helps to eliminate any itching or burning that typically occurs when you’re processing your hair. It soothes and protects while you wait.
Steps 2 & 3 were developed to be a perfect match to the pH of your hair and skin. So, not only do these deep hydrating treatments add moisture and shine to your hair, they also ease any scalp discomfort post-processing and in between treatments.
