What causes hair breakage?

Hair breakage is primarily caused by the weakening or damage of the hair's structural components, particularly hair bonds. These bonds are essential for maintaining the hair's strength and elasticity. A combination of factors, including excessive heat styling, chemical treatments, and environmental stressors, can contribute to the disruption of hair bonds, resulting in hair breakage. To better understand the role of hair bonds in preventing breakage, it is important to dig into the nature of hair bonds and the contribution of hair bonding treatments to hair health.

What are hair bonds?

Simply put, bond-building products mend the broken bonds in hair. When those bonds are repaired, the cuticle of the hair strand lies flatter (it’s less roughed up) and the protein levels in the hair are boosted for an overall healthier, shinier look and feel. Essentially, it’s the secret sauce for how to stop hair breakage.

What hair-bonding treatment should I use?

We’re glad you asked! While traditional damaged-hair products and repairing treatments work to seal hair cuticles, the new Bond Repair Collection by L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise works from the inside out to rebuild and recreate intramolecular bonds. This collection harnesses innovative technology with citric acid to dramatically increase hair-fiber resistance, reducing breakage by 98%, increasing shine by 90%, and resulting in 12 times fewer split ends.

The easy-to-use 4-step regimen begins with the Bond Repair Pre-Shampoo, which oversaturates hair with maleic acid and a 3% citric acid concentration to recreate bonds and strengthen fibers. After a five-minute application, rinse and follow with the Bond Repair Shampoo and Bond Repair Conditioner respectively to cleanse, reinforce, and seal the hair cuticle. Finish with the Bond Repair Leave-In Serum to protect hair bonds and enhance smoothness and shine. Experience a revolutionized hair bonding treatment with the L'Oréal Paris Bond Repair Collection.
