Damaged hair? Try these repairing treatments!

Damaged hair? Try these repairing treatments!

No matter how much conditioner or oils we use on our hair, sometimes we need a little more to help re-build the strength in your hair. This is particularly true if you love to colour or use heat on your hair… its inevitable that it’s going to lead to some damage to your strands. But it’s not all lost: there’s lots of treatments on the market now that can help restore your damaged strands to give your hair some much needed TLC.

Here are some fabulous bond building treatments that penetrates deep within the hair shaft to re-build its integral bonds.

How do hair repair treatments work?

Your hair is made up of a protein called keratin, which is held together by bonds. Over time, these bonds can weaken and break due to various factors such as heat styling, chemical treatments, and environmental stressors. This leads to frizz, breakage, and overall lackluster hair.

Bond repair treatments target these structures to strengthen and repair these broken bonds. Some of the common ingredients you’ll see include amino acids and special proteins to rebuild the hair’s structure from within.

Each product does this differently – but the way it works is that it helps to repair hair from within by mimicking internal chemical bonds. Proteins will help to reform the hair structure and amino acids and peptides will help to add moisture and hydration to the hair.

Pre Shampoo Treatments

Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate

Featuring Redken’s highest concentration of 14% Citric Acid and Bonding Care Complex, this 5 minute rinse-off treatment provides intensive strength repair from the inside-out.

This is designed to be used as a pre-shampoo to prime the hair – so would work great if you have strengthening shampoo or conditioners too (or a mask).

I love how quick and easy this is to use: just 5 minutes and wash off to see fabulous results.

Curlsmith Bond Curl Rehab Salve

This is another pre-shampoo treatment, this one focusing on protein to strengthen your hair. You don’t need a lot of this fab product. Depending on your hair porosity, they recommend you leave it on for 15-30 minutes.

This treatment features key ingredients such as bondcurl complex, sweet almond oil, radish root and a superfood blend to strengthen the hair.

Philip Kingsley Bond Builder Restructuring Treatment

An over processed hairs dream! Leave this on for 10 minutes before washing out, this restructuring treatment from Philip Kingsley promises hair that is up to 3 x more resistant to damage.

This treatment is encapsulated within a minimal, pH adjusted formulation, featuring just one lightweight conditioning ingredient to improve your hair health.

Hair Mask / Leave In

Olaplex No.8 Bond Intensive Moisture Mask

Need to give your frazzled hair a little extra love? A hair mask can give you a bit more of an intense treatment when you need it most! Olaplex utilises their patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to repair broken bonds. Love the airless pump packaging.

Just leave this on for 10 minutes to start repairing the bonds in your hair.

Philip Kingsley Bond Builder Split End Remedy

This fabulous treatment from Philip Kingsley utilises plant-based peptides and hydrolysed oat protein to hydrate and strengthen your hair. It works to seal split ends for stronger, healthier looking hair and because it forms a shield on the hair, it helps to prevent future damage too, which is fabulous.

This is a leave in treatment – and works best when used every third wash, so no need to wash out!
