6 Bond-Building Hair Masks That Will Help Reverse The Damage


Experimenting with hair constantly comes at a cost. Years of subjecting my hair to crazy colours along with constant heat styling made it brittle and thin. Now, I’m sure I’m not the only one dealing with this. However, I refuse to give up on my hair experiments. In my quest to repair hair that doesn’t seem like it could be repaired, I discovered the benefits of bond-building hair masks.

Unlike usual hydrating hair masks, bond-building hair masks work to fix the hair’s broken bonds caused by incessant colouring or chemical treatments. The bond-building hair masks penetrate deeper than the first layer of follicles. The presence of amino acids or even different kinds of proteins in bond-building masks ensures that the strength and smoothness of your hair make a slow but steady return.

Ahead, we’ve listed some of our top picks when it comes to at-home bond-building hair masks.
