How to use


How to use QUINOAPLEX R3 Hair Repair with natural quinoa protein. Hair is 85% protein. Hair loses its protein through coloring, bleaching, sun, sea, and over-styling. This damages hair. The result is hair breakage and thinning hair. Quinoa protein has small molecules. They are small enough to go in to the hair shaft. To repair hair. This slows hair thinning for men and women. Hair looks and feels thicker and fuller.

Why is QUINOAPLEX R3 good for me?

How does QUINOAPLEX R3 work its magic?

Hydrolyzed quinoa protein's molecules are smaller than other proteins. So they can get in to the hair easier. Hydrolyzed quinoa protein and the protein make-up of hair and nails is almost the same. So when the natural quinoa protein in QUINOAPLEX R3 and the natural protein in your hair come together they join. Once inside the hair, the hair’s natural acid and salt oxidize the hydrolyzed quinoa protein in QUINOAPLEX R3. So it swells up. This gives the hair more volume. Because it is swollen it cannot come out of the hair. This does not happen with other products. They need #2 and #3 treatments to keep their product in the hair.

What does hydrolyzed mean?

To hydrolyze something is to break it down with water. The water breaks into two parts, hydroxide and hydrogen. These parts have opposite charges. One negative, the other positive. This aids digestion, but has astounding results for hair treatments too.

When hydrolysis occurs complete proteins break down into their individual amino acid parts.

What's left is a unique profile of individual amino acids ready to get to work. This team of building blocks penetrates the hair better than other plant proteins.

This is key to why hydrolyzed ingredients are so effective. ONC use hydrolyzed ingredients throughout its products.

How do I use QUINOAPLEX R3?

Use at least two times  before coloring or bleaching hair. Hair takes and holds color better. There is less damage from the color or bleach. Color lasts longer. Hydrolyzed quinoa reduces damage by up to 32%. Use regularly between shampoo and conditioner for visibly glossier more vibrant hair. Hydrolyzed quinoa provides up to 51% shinier, smoother, stronger more manageable hair. Use for uncolored hair when it is distressed and dry from over-styling, sun, sea, chlorine, drying winds, and city pollution. QUINOAPLEX R3 is the perfect single substitute for all other 'plexes'.

Use QUINOAPLEX R3 on its own, as part of the ONC Care System, or with chemical* colors.

* For the health of our customers ONC do not endorse the use of full chemical color. But if you must. QUINOAPLEX R3 will help keep your hair healthier.
