Transform your hair from the inside out

From heat styling to environmental stress, our hair is constantly under siege says Freya Manager of our Hillhead salon. That’s where bond repairing treatments come into play, a revolutionary approach to restore health, strength and shine to your hair.

A deep penetrating treatment, developed to repair and nourish your hair by re-building integral bonds, they are a step up from some regular hair masks that only improve the hair’s surface.

Understanding hair bonds

First, let’s talk about the foundation of our hair – the bonds. Our hair is made up of proteins, primarily keratin, held together by various types of bonds, with disulphide bonds being the most significant explains Freya.

These bonds are responsible for the strength and elasticity of our hair. However, regular styling, chemical treatments, and even daily exposure to sun and pollution, can weaken these bonds leading to damaged, brittle and lifeless hair.

How hair bond repairing treatments work

Hair bond repairing treatments are the superheroes of hair care. At Strands we use and recommend Redken’s ABC (Acidic Bonding Concentrate Treatments) .

These advanced formulations penetrate deep into the hair shaft to target and repair broken bonds. By repairing these bonds, the treatments restore the hair’s natural strength and resilience and beauty from the inside-out.

Whether it’s an in-salon professional treatment or an at-home care product, these treatments work at a molecular level to repair broken links in the hair’s cortex, giving improved strength and resilience to damage which helps reduce breakage, split ends, dryness and frizz.

Who needs hair bond repairing treatments?

So, who stands to benefit from these treatments? If your hair feels over-processed, brittle or lacks shine, then an ABC treatment is for you, advises Freya.

She adds, “These treatments really are a must for all hair types and used regularly, as advised by your stylist, will significantly improve your hair’s health.”

As always, prevention is better than cure. Many things, from heat to colour and chlorinated water to chemical treatments like bleach or relaxants, can damage these bonds and affect hair’s strength. So try to minimise damage where you can.

Once the bonds are damaged then a hair bonding treatment like ABC can help restore strength, shine and manageability. Unlike nourishing masks and other hydrating products, bond repair treatments focus on repairing and re-linking the broken bonds leaving hair stronger and healthier.

Expected results and benefits

Expect to see a noticeable difference says Freya. Your hair will feel stronger, look healthier and shine brighter after an ABC treatment.

These results are not just surface-level – it’s a deep-rooted restoration strengthening the hair from the inside-out and protecting against breakage.

Combining treatments with regular hair care

To maximise these benefits, build ABC bond repairing treatments into your regular haircare routine.
