This $10 Bonding Pre-Shampoo Is a Game-Changer for Damaged Hair

Must read

My hair has been through a lot, and I’ve spent more money than I care to admit trying to nurture it back to health over the years, often to no avail. From pre shampoo and conditioners to overnight treatments, hair oils and more, I’ve quite literally tried it all, and my hair has made a good deal of a comeback, but there is still work to be done, and for a while I thought I’d exhausted all my options for rejuvenating my strands.

That was until I discovered the Sally Beauty’s bondbar Bonding Pre-Shampoo ($10). While I’ve tried my fair share of bonding shampoos and conditioners before, I’ve never experimented with a pre-shampoo product. Affordable and effective, this pre-shower product has transformed my hair-care routine.

What it is:

Sally Beauty’s bondbar is a reparative product system that aims to hydrate, strengthen and protect hair from the damages of heat, color and more, and the Bonding Pre-Shampoo is the perfect first step in restoring your hair back to health. Free of SLS/SLES, parabens and phthalates, this pre-shower product instantly hydrates and nourishes hair while repairing, smoothing, strengthening and reducing the appearance of split ends for hair that looks and feels healthier and stronger.

I don’t use heat on my hair too often, but have had a lot of bleaching and dying done, so I opt to use this product 1-2 times a week before a hair wash. I notice with each use that my hair feels softer right away, but have also noticed my strands appearing healthier and smoother over time, too.

How to use:

To unlock healthier, shinier hair, apply this pre-shampoo product from scalp to tip on damp hair and leave on for at least 10 minutes. I like to coordinate my uses with my shaving days so I can exfoliate and shave while the product sits. Best when used as a hair repair system with the bondbar Shampoo, Conditioner and Styling Cream, per the brand’s recommendation, the bondbar Bonding Pre-Shampoo can be used two or three times a week, especially after chemical treatments or with frequent heat styling.
