Does your hair feel dry and rough to the touch? Does it look dull and lackluster, with visible split ends or strands that break easily? Chances are, you’re dealing with hair damage, an inevitable reality for all of us.
Your healthiest hair starts from within—and remedying hair damage requires more than a surface-level fix. This is where botanical repair™, our 100% vegan hair repair system, comes in. Our award-winning hair repair collection works by building brand-new hair bonds deep within the hair cortex to deliver stronger, healthier-looking results for all hair types and textures from 1A-4C.
But what are hair bonds and why are they so important, anyway? Below, we’re answering these questions and diving into the bond-building technology that powers botanical repair™.
All about hair bonds
Let’s start with a quick science lesson: Your hair is made of a strong, fibrous protein called keratin. Keratin is held together by many types of hair bonds, including disulfide bonds and hydrogen bonds. Both of these bonds contribute to your hair’s overall strength and appearance; think of them as the “glue” which holds each individual hair strand together. Their integrity is essential for strong, healthy-looking hair.
Unfortunately, hair bonds are breakable and can be compromised by the 4 most common causes of hair damage: heat, chemical, mechanical and environmental. Everything from heat-styling your hair to swimming in a pool to spending time outdoors may contribute to hair that’s dry, brittle and dull. It was with this knowledge that our botanical repair™ hair repair collection was born.
