A Beginner's Guide to Olaplex and Other Bond Builders: The HairMNL Edition

Hair damage is an all-too-common concern for many, especially in the Philippines. Factors like the harsh tropical climate, frequent exposure to pollution, and regular hair styling can take their toll on your beautiful locks. That's precisely where bond-building hair products come into play, providing a revolutionary way to combat hair damage from the inside out. HairMNL is here with a comprehensive beginner's guide to introduce you to the world of Olaplex and other remarkable bond builders like Davines Nourishing, Aveda Botanical Repair, and Davines Heart of Glass.

What Are Bond Builders? An Overview

Bond builders are not your run-of-the-mill hair conditioners; these are potent solutions specifically formulated to repair broken disulfide bonds in the hair. What causes these broken bonds? Often, it's aggressive hair treatments like coloring, perming, straightening, and even excessive heat styling that deteriorate the hair’s natural structure. Bond builders work at a molecular level to mend these broken bonds, reviving your hair's strength, resilience, and overall integrity.

When talking about bond builders, one simply can't skip Olaplex. It's a brand that has pioneered the bond-building segment with its unique, patented technology. Olaplex targets the hair at its core, rebuilding its natural molecular structure for a truly rejuvenated look.
