U.S. Patent No. 11,273,120

TeraBond™ is a reactive system that covalently bonds to amino acids and keratin fragments in human hair, including broken disulfide linkages, and is a natural, high performing Plex bond multiplier.

Other Plex technology uses controversial ethoxylated chemicals (e.g. diglycol, PEGs) that may contain 1,4-dioxane, but TeraBond does not. It is 100% natural, safe, and renewable.


TeraBond can be used in Salon services where developers and neutralizers (peroxides or enzyme oxidizers) are used, such as:

  • Bleaching, Balayage, and Highlights
  • Demi and Permanent Color
  • Perms or Hair Relaxer treatments

TeraBond also repairs bonds in home-use formulas. It can be added to conditioner and leave-in treatments formulas to restore hair without quats or silicones.


There are numerous benefits to using TeraBond in Salon formulations:

  • Reduces client & stylist exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Repairs hair to the same standard as leading Plex products
  • Increases sheen & strength,
  • Repels moisture, less breakage
  • Conditions without quats or silicones


Sustainability & Flexibility:

TeraBond is a powder, and is five times more concentrated than Olaplex Step 1.

It can be used as-is and added directly to salon processes and it can be formulated into two-part salon systems (e.g. Step1 and Step 2) as well as at-home treatments (e.g. Step 3, etc.).
