There have been may controversies over the bonding market in the UK especially over who was responsible for the final mix neither the colour houses or the bonding companies would take responsibility for the end product which left us the hairdressers responsible and in a precarious position.
With the help of The Hair Council and Just hair Insurance, Sophia Hilton and myself we finally managed to change that with some insurance companies, I myself have never been a fan of one size fits all and so I used them as stand alone treatments until L’Oreal launched smartbond a bonding kit that had been tested on all its haircolour products finally it felt safe to use
I’ve been thrilled with the results, more shine,stronger feeling hair and clients have been loving it. Of course its brilliant in my pre-lightners for Balayage but also amazing in regular colour, because of the way it works their is less fade in colours which is brilliant and on those balayaged ends they feel stronger than ever.
But like anything else its not a miracle if you wouldn’t colour the hair in front of you because its so damaged then don’t think smartbond will make it okay, you will still need to focus on getting the hair back into good enough shape before attempting to colour and so your smartbond can be used as a stand alone treatment. You don’t need to increase the volume of developer or extend the development time, which is a huge thing for me and a win-win for clients.
