It doesn't help with lightening. But it does prevent damage while the bleach is lifting.
It's a disulphide bond rebuilder, it will seek out negative bonds and creates positive ones in its place. It protects against heat damage, colour damage and environmental damage.

Just be aware that Olaplex isn’t a conditioner so won’t improve the overall condition or feel of the hair if it’s dry and lacking moisture.

Also, it’s a patented formula and the other brands selling their version of ‘Plex’ products are basically hair conditioners and won’t repair broken bonds.
