It’s in the pH

Have you mastered the secret to healthy hair yet? It’s all in the pH! Just like we look after our skin, our hair needs TLC too. The pH of hair is naturally acidic, around 4.5-5.5 this benchmark has good strength, condition and shine. When you use elements such as heat, bleach and colour, it can affect the hair structure because it interferes with the pH level and bonds. A higher pH level causes dryness and frizz with the hair becoming more prone to breakage and split ends. Make sense yet?

How to bring it back

The Acidic Bonding Concentrate range from Redken has an acidic pH formula to bring hair back to a natural pH level –  this alongside Redken’s Bonding Care Complex and Citric Acid works hair back into a good acidic condition, strengthening hair by reinforcing weakened bonds in the fibre and targeting damage from colour, heat, chemical processing and environmental factors.

The results? High-shine, ultra-soft and stronger hair after every wash.
