General
Three hair samples were obtained from a human subject and cut in ½ inch wide wefts.
Coloring formulation: The permanent hair coloring formulation was obtained, from a L'Oreal® permanent hair coloring service (L'Oreal® Majirel permanent color #10 with 20 volume peroxide).
Binding formulation: A bismaleate binding agent, 2,2'-(ethane-l,2-diylbis(oxy))bis(ethan-l -amine) di-maleate, at a concentration of 300 mg in 10 g total solution (water) was used.
Methods
The hair samples were washed with a clarifying shampoo then towel dried. The samples were then colored with the L'Oreal® permanent hair color service, which was left on the hair samples for approximately 35-40 minutes.
The first color treated hair sample ("control") was subsequently rinsed and washed with Liqwd® Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner five times before being photographed.
The binding formulation was applied to the second and third color treated hair samples via a spray bottle and massaging using the fingers.
Results:
The hair samples treated with the binding formulation showed better color retention, more shine, and less frizz than the control. The hair samples treated with the binding formulation felt smoother to the touch and combined with the lower frizz and added sheen gave an overall healthier appearance over the control.
Example 7: Comparison of color retention in traditionally permed hair and hair permed using the binding formulations.
Method
A ½ inch wide weft of hair sample, obtained from a human subject, was washed with clarifying shampoo then towel dried. Ammonium thioglycolate or dithiothreitol was mechanically pulled through the hair with a wide and a fine toothcomb several times then left on the hair for 10 minutes to 1 hour. The hair was then rinsed for 30 seconds to 1 minute with water, and then towel dried.
The binding formulation, described in Example 1, was then applied via a needle nose applicator drenching the hair and leaving it on for 7.5 minutes. This step was repeated, for a total of 15 minutes. The hair was then rinsed for 1-2 minutes, shampooed, and then conditioned with various salon shampoo and conditioner brands, including LiQWd® Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner.
A second sample of hair was straightened, as described above, but using hydrogen peroxide instead of the binding formulation. The hair samples were washed and conditioned repeatedly.
Comparison of hair color:
After both hair samples were washed five times using LiQWd® Hydrating
Shampoo and LiQWd® Hydrating Conditioner, the samples were examined for their color retention.
Results
The hair sample treated with the binding formulation displayed a color closer in intensity to the hair sample prior to the first washing, compared to the hair treated with hydrogen peroxide.
Example 8: Comparison of hair treated with highlighting formulation applied simultaneously with binding formulation and hair treated with highlighting formulation alone
The binding formulation in Example 1 contained the bismaleate binding agent at concentrations of 2400 mg in 10 g total solution (water).
Two swatches of human hair were tested. A sample was taken from the same head, 1 inch wide, and split in half. The color was medium brown and had been previously color treated with an unknown professional hair color.
Swatch 1, 1/2 inch wide and 8 inches long, was lightened with traditional highlighting ingredients mixed with a binding formulation, loz of Joico Verocolor Veroxide developer-20 volume was mixed with loz Joico Verolight powder bleach to form the highlighting formulation. Then 9mL of the binding formulation was added to the highlighting formulation to form a mixture.
The mixture was applied on the Swatch lhair with an applicator brush as the hair lay on aluminum foil. The foil was then wrapped around the swatch and allowed to process for 35 minutes. The swatch was rinsed and shampooed one time.
Swatch 2, the control, 1/2 inch wide and 8 inches long, was lightened with traditional highlighting ingredients in the absence of a binding formulation, loz of Joico Verocolor Veroxide developer-20 volume was mixed with loz Joico Verolight powder bleach to form a highlighting formulation with a creamy consistency.
The highlighting formulation was applied on the Swatch 2 hair with an applicator brush as the hair lay on aluminum foil. The foil was then wrapped around the swatch and allowed to process for 35 minutes. The swatch was rinsed and shampooed one time.
Results
A noticeable difference in hair quality between Swatch 1 and Swatch 2 was observed. Swatch 1 hair was softer, less frizzy, appeared hydrated, with more shine than the control, Swatch 2.
Both swatches were washed and conditioned 5 more times with the same noticeable benefits of Swatch 1 (treated with the mixture of highlighting formulation and binding formulation) compared to the control, Swatch 2 (treated with highlighting formulation, alone).
Unless defined otherwise, all technical and scientific terms used herein have the same meanings as commonly understood by one of skill in the art to which the disclosed invention belongs. Publications cited herein and the materials for which they are cited are specifically incorporated by reference.
Those skilled in the art will recognize, or be able to ascertain using no more than routine experimentation, many equivalents to the specific embodiments of the invention described herein.

Patents ARE PROOF that a chemical works, here in the USA you can NOT get a patent until you proof that the chemical works, so here's all the analyses you asked for. Here's are all the tests that Dr. Eric Pressly, and Dr.Craig Hawker, did for you to examine.
If you have any questions I'll be glad to help you.
I don't have a problem with any company making a deep conditioner, restructurer, but when they lie and say it's the same as Olaplex, that's the part that gets me and yes to those companies, I will call them snake oil BS, because that's exactly what they are, liars!

Still NO microanalysis of the hair structure, only the same anecdotas over and over again: "Swatch 1 hair was softer, less frizzy, appeared hydrated, with more shine than the control, Swatch 2."
"Patents ARE PROOF that a chemical works, here in the USA you can NOT get a patent until you proof that the chemical works"
Coca Cola too, owes a patent for their simple sugar water.

Here an anecdota for you from a recent documentary from Cuba, I saw at arte TV.
One of the most famous Cuban rum producers reported about the secret of their rum manufactoring: mixing, let rest, mixing again, let rest and so on an so on. The knowledge of it is being transferred from generation to generation. "Coca Cola is keeping their patented recipes in a safe, but we do not need any safe for it, we keep it in our HEARTS."
I hope, you as an American, also can understand the deep "symbolic" meaning of this statement, coming from Cuba?

Actually if you had read the Patent, it does give exact measurements and analyses. Please tell me are you looking for microscopic picture analyses?
Please be more specific or give me a point of reference like an example of what you want, show me an example.
You keep referring to Coca-Cola, why, what does Coke have to do with Olaplex? I'm not understand your point at all or your anaology.
Show me an example of what you want please.

Do you think olaplex will soon bring out some thing for the skin like a moisturiser as it says the patent is for hair and skin?

I am bumping this up to ask whether anyone would know whether olaplex can negatively interact with bleach and cause an allergic reaction? I have recently had olaplex added to my colour and my most recent colour ended up causing a reaction so I am looking into all of the options.
