After bathing in the sun, taking a splash in the pool or basking in extreme heat this summer, hair can often take a dry, brittle turn. Finding a product which will ‘rescue’ your hair can be difficult, however, with the power of ‘bond-building’ technology, hair can feel healthy and smooth again, even after a long, hot summer - or a rainy one, if you live in the UK! Unlike some other hair products, which effectively coat your hair in moisture, bond-building works by repairing broken bonds inside the hair, rebuilding damage-prone strands from the inside-out. So, without further ado, we have rounded up our favourite bond-building treatments to help bring hair back to life post-sunny season!

L'Oréal Paris Elvive Bond Repair Pre-Shampoo Treatment

Featuring a citric acid-infused formula this treatment helps protect, nourish and hydrate the strands while minimising the risk of breakage .The pre-shampoo treatment works by protecting each strand, to help prevent further breakage, as well as reducing the appearance of split ends. Leave the treatment on hair for as little as 5 minuets for optimum results to promote  glossy, shiny locks.

Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector

This hair-saving formula is a must for those with fragile, brittle strands. The Hair Perfector acts as a weekly pre-shampoo treatment, protecting against excess breakage as well as visibly strengthening hair and preserving existing colour, restoring a satin-like shine.

An all-in-one formula that saturates your strands in a strengthening blend of peptides and lipids, helping to intensely hydrate dry and brittle ends.

Coco & Eve Bond Repair and Restore Kit 

What's better than bond building haircare? How about a kit delivered in a deluxe pink pouch with a hair towel wrap to cut down hair drying time.

Ideal for anyone who uses heated styling products, the leave-in treatment revives strands while guarding against future damage, with heat protection up to 450 degrees.  Uplift your senses with the trio's delicate scent of organic marjoram, rose and ylang ylang.

I've always been someone who has been fascinated by makeup and beauty. How it can liberate and empower individuals to express themselves and allow people, me included, to feel more confident. Growing up in a female household who are all beauty oriented has allowed me to experiment with makeup from a young age. My absolute go-to makeup look is a glowy, natural look and I've recently started doing faux freckles- to feel sun-kissed even in the British climate. Cream contour, blush, and highlight are my makeup bag must-haves- with makeup revolution bright light highlighter being my absolute favourite. When it comes to skincare, I have never been someone to have a full routine. I like to keep it simple with a light moisturiser and of course, my Bondi Sands tinted SPF.
