Who hasn’t heard of Olaplex, L’Oreal Professionnel SmartBond, Schwarzkopf Fibreplex, Redken Flash bond, Redken Shades EQ Bonder inside, Zerran and the list goes on. The salon industry is incorporating Bonding technology faster than ever.

But what is Hair Bonding Technology and how will it benefit your hair?

Hair is composed of  microscopic chemical bonds too small for the human eye to see. Bonding technology is designed to improve hair elasticity, condition and strength by utilizing similar chemistry. 

Hair Bonding technology utilize chemical compounds that target disulfide, hydrogen and salt bonds. The bonds fragment and reform during the colouring process as well as prevent damage during chemical processes.

Does Hair bonding technology work?

The general opinion from our customers is a resounding YES! Of course not all brands are the same but the major brands are highly recommended by top hairstylists.

According to celebrity stylist Jason Lee and Norman Wright:

Jason Lee bonding system expert opinion at Cosmetic World
To me, a bond builder is essential if you’re lightening.  If you don’t use it, you’re doing a disservice to your client . I understand it’s an investment, but then charge your client more because there shouldn’t be any reason you don’t use the latest technology when playing with lightener anymore”.
