Our hair is made up of keratin proteins and forms polypeptide bonds. These bonds are kept in alignment by hydrogen, salt, and disulfide bonds. Inside the cortex of your hair you have microfibers that are held together by disulfide which gives your hair structure, strength, and stability. When these bonds are disrupted they can break into two, and if the two stay separated it results in damage to the hair that we know as breakage. Heat, UV, and chemicals can all result in this damage, pretty crazy right? So how can you help the health of your hair at home and in the salon?
The answer is Olaplex!
