Welcome to pH Plex©! We’re excited to debut our simple 3-step system for complete protection of your hair — from the inside out.
As pH Plex© prepares to hit the online shopping carts of Amazon, here’s the quick guide to this professional-results, at-home-convenience, protect & repair hair strengthener.
What is pH Plex, Exactly?
Too much hair dye, too much bleach, too much heat – often we can love our hair to death.
Hair colors, lighteners, perms, and relaxers are notorious for leaving hair brittle, thin, and easily broken, but it’s heartbreaking to be forced into a choice between healthy hair and the magnificent color we’ve worked so hard to achieve.
That’s why we designed pH Plex©.
With this 3-step protect & repair treatment, you don’t have to choose between a lustrous mane and your favorite hair color.
World-wide exclusive pH Plex© is the ONLY professional-grade Plex product for home use that does not require the color formula, bleach composition, or leave-on time adjusted. So far, this type of product has been left to the hair professionals.
What Are the 3 Steps in the pH Plex© System?
pH Plex© is composed of three products, used in three steps during your hair coloring/bleaching process and in-between treatments.
The first step (pH Plex 1: Protect) is mixed into your at-home hair color and/or bleach to protect your hair from damage during the application process.
After rinsing the hair, the second step (pH Plex 2: Repair) is applied and left on for 5-10 minutes to repair any left-over damage during the application process, all at a molecular level.
Step 3 (pH Plex© 3: Stabilize) is a weekly treatment that replenishes the active ingredients of steps 1 and 2 and repairs your hair at the molecular level. It also protects your hair from the day-to-day thermal and mechanical damage that happens during brushing, combing, blow-drying, and flat-ironing – all for a silky, gorgeous look.
All three steps have:
- Exclusive, globally patented technology designed for at-home use that Professionals will love too
- No changes to your normal hair color or bleaching routine with the Color & Bleach results you are used to
- Affordable, easy to use, single-dose packaging
- Simple, worry-free application (no complicated mixing instructions or need to change your routine)
- Professional-grade hair damage protection (previously only available at salons)
Now your hair can be any color you want — pink, purple, turquoise, copper, blonde, and more — while staying soft, strong, and shiny.
Who’s pH Plex© For?
pH Plex is for everyone who wants a simple, foolproof way to protect and restore their hair.
We designed it for people who color or bleach their hair at home and professional stylists who want a fast, easy to use, reliable, low out-of-pocket hair protection system.
Until now, professional-grade Plex products were only available to stylists. Applying them to an individual customer typically required adjustments to the color composition, bleach/lightener oxidizer concentration, and application time. Most at-home hair color users found them too expensive and too complicated to use without risking disastrous color results.
So we’re changing the rules of the hair-coloring game.
pH Plex empowers you to protect any type of hair at home, with professional results, at a fraction of the effort and cost.
How easy is it to use?
If you can read the packaging, you’re good to go. Simply mix the full content of Step 1 into your Color or Bleach, apply and leave-in as normal.
Then rinse, apply the full content of Step 2, leave-in for 5-10 minutes, then rinse again, shampoo and style as normal.
Apply Step 3 once per week to washed, damp hair, leave-in for 5-10 minutes, rinse or wash if you prefer, style as normal.
What Makes pH Plex© Different Than Other Plex Hair Products?
There are other Plex hair protectors out there. What makes ours different? Two things:
1. No changes to your color or bleach results with little change to your normal hair color/bleaching routine.
pH Plex has a worldwide patent, thus exclusive technology that ensures that you have the hair color and bleach results you are used to seeing. The pH in pH Plex refers to the pH value of your hair color/bleach and the pH of your skin.
Our unique formulation of step 1 has a pH that matches your hair color and/or bleach. Normally, a salon professional would have to create this pH balance, but we have already done it for you!
Step 2 is formulated to the pH value of your skin, and therefore during the application process you will have a reduction in many of those unpleasant sensations that come with the processing of your hair – say goodbye to the itch and burn!
2. More Effective Hair Repair
Your hair is made of up to 21 types of amino acids. While the bonding technology of other Plex products (as Olaplex says) can react with one type of amino-acid, the pH Plex© 1: Protect active ingredient can react with all types of amino acids that make up your hair.
This protects and repairs the entire hair, not just portions of it.
Curious about this ingredient?
It’s malic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) found naturally within the human body.
A mainstay in the skincare world, malic acid is the effective ingredient in many highly-rated clarifying, exfoliating, and anti-aging skin treatments. It re-connects broken amino-acid bonds and creates strong hair, repairing any damaged hair structure from the inside out.
3. For Everyone: Home and Salon
As said above, other Plex products often require a professional’s knowledge of your hair color and your bleach’s chemical makeup. This is in addition to the myriad of ways any change in the application can affect your individual hair color.
Knowledge barriers like this make most Plex products inaccessible for the at-home hair colorist – so we made our products easy to use for everyone that colors or bleaches their hair!
Basically, if you can color your hair, you can use pH Plex.
And even if you aren’t sure about coloring your own hair — just bring pH Plex to your next hair appointment! Your stylist will find it easy to apply.
How Can I Purchase pH Plex©?
Easily! pH Plex© will be released on Amazon.com in September 2020: simply order it along with your next hair color box.
We’ll wrap up with 5-star-rated hairstylist and pH Plex developer Thommy Stöber’s words:
“All three pH Plex©’ are perfect team players. They blend in at just the right pH, simply and reliably, with great Color and Bleach results.
As a beauty professional, I love healthy hair and skin and I truly rejoice to see home users protecting their hair reliably and in an affordable manner.
There is no better way for the professional stylist, too.”
Your hair deserves to look and feel beautiful.
Time to start loving it with a product that makes it shine.
