Curlsmith Bond Curl Rehab Salve is an intensepre-shampoo treatment, rich in proteins that targets hair bonds to strengthen and repair from the inside out.
Our hair is made of a keratin structure, which is reinforced by so-calledhair bonds. There are 3 types of bonds that make up the hair structure:
- Disulfide bonds, which are damaged by bleach and chemical treatments;
- Salt bonds, which are damaged by sudden pH imbalance;
- Hydrogen bonds, which are damaged by excess of moisture and heat.
Curlsmith Bond Curl Rehab Salve is a powerful blend of superfoods and fortifying active ingredients that targets all 3 of these bonds to repair, rebuild and restore hair fibre strength. It also provides protection to help against further damage.Balancing protein-rich and moisturizing productsin your routine is key to healthy, strong hair. The more damaged and porousyour hair is, the more protein-rich products from ourStrength Recipesyou should use.
