Build Your Strength After Lockdown –
for Fragile, Weakened, Damaged Hair
Colouring hair can be great fun, and help us reconnect with our own expressionism and identity. Sometimes though altering your colour, or over styling your hair can lead to serious damage, damage that in the past would have been irreparable. Now we have the technology to restore strength to hair weakened hair more than ever before. Here I have selected three miracle working reparative haircare families that will bring your locks back to live and give them the strength to keep going.
Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate
Redken’s newest offering does not disappoint. Damaged hair sits on the alkaline end of the PH scale, leaving it weakened, fragile, and dull. Think of it like chalk, fragmented, easy to snap, with a matt finish. Not very appealing, right? Suited best to hair that is over-processed, overheated, and overworked. I know the word acidic might be a little scary but trust the science. In this case we need to bring it back to PH neutral so by introducing Citric Acid to your haircare you can get it there, with not much effort at all. Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate comes in the form of shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment, great for those with little time to spare.
Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate’s unique Bonding Care Complex works to rebuild the bonds that strengthen your hair, and the result is reinforced, shiny, healthier hair. Check it out here.
Kerastase Blond Absolu Cicaextreme
This range is pure luxury, as Kerastase always is. Blond Absolu Cicaextreme is best suited to the over-bleached, overworked kind of hair. It will bring a lush, rehydrated, flexible flow to your hair, all while it works away inside the hair shaft to rebuild its strength, reduce breakage, and repair damage caused by stretching your hair to its limits.
Using active ingredients of Hyaluronic Acid and Edelweiss Oil, enriched with a high concentration of nutritive lipids, duo technology, this range targets the most damaged parts of the hair fibre, delivering stronger hair, softness, manageability, and shine. The Hyaluronic Acid works to forge the keratin bonds together and to hydrate the hair, whilst the Edelweiss Oil allows for nourishment shine and flow throughout your hair.

A long-term love of professionals the world over, this hair dynamo brings life back to even the most helpless hair. Yeah sure, the packaging is no frills, but I like the honesty of that. It says, ‘We don’t need extra bells and whistles, what is in this bottle will knock your socks off.’
Olaplex revolutionised the whole hair colour industry when it landed on the scene in 2014, with it’s exceptional ability to extend the capabilities of colour, and repair damaged hair like no product before it.
It works to rebuild and mimic the Disulphide Bonds that hold the keratin together within the hair strand. Not only will it stop breakage in it’s tracks, it will leave your hair lightweight, protected, detangled, strong, repaired, soft, manageable, incredibly shiny, and the envy of all your friends.
Not only can it do all that, but it is also sulfate free, paraben free, silicone free, gluten free, nut free, cruelty free, and vegan! I mean, what’s not to love. Find it at the link below.
So there you have it, a capsule collection of three amazing remedies to even the most destressed tresses. You need look no further than these offerings if it is strength and repair you are looking for.
