Bonder Inside is available in a range of products from Redken including Shades EQ and Flash Lift formulas, and even home care with the new Acidic Bonding Concentrate — but do you know what it does and why you need it? Both stylists and clients should have an understanding of the purpose of bonders and why to choose or ask for these products by name. 

What are bond bonders?

Bonder Inside, bonders, or bonding formulas contain a system to protect the bonds within your hair while working to reduce hair breakage, improve the hair’s strength, elasticity, smoothness and shine. Containing citric acid and taurine these work to strengthen weakened bonds and instantly improve the appearance of your hair. 

Bonders are widely used by professionals in hair color services, but with new innovations, the technology is also available in home care products as well.
