Bleach, dye, heat styling and the environment can all do a number on your strands. We're talking parched tresses, dullness, breakage and none of that healthy bounce you see in all those hair commercials. There's a little secret that'll help counteract all that damage. Bond-building hair care products.

"Hair bonding is a technology that can help restore strength, softness, smoothness and bounce to hair," says Dani Everson, Denver-based hairstylist and owner of Clementine's Salon. "These products, which typically take the form of masks, shampoos and conditioners, work to strengthen hair with ingredients that naturally occur in hair strands, just on a much deeper level."

Just one word of caution, though. You can "over proteinize" your strands by using bonding products too frequently. This can cause the opposite intended effect making hair weaker and lackluster. So always use as recommended!
