TeraBond™ is a reactive system that covalently bonds to amino acids and keratin fragments in human hair, including broken disulfide linkages, and is a natural, high performing Plex bond multiplier.
Other Plex technology uses controversial ethoxylated chemicals (e.g. diglycol, PEGs) that may contain 1,4-dioxane, but TeraBond does not. It is 100% natural, safe, and renewable.
TeraBond can be used in Salon services where developers and neutralizers (peroxides or enzyme oxidizers) are used, such as:
TeraBond also repairs bonds in home-use formulas. It can be added to conditioner and leave-in treatments formulas to restore hair without quats or silicones.
There are numerous benefits to using TeraBond in Salon formulations:
Sustainability & Flexibility:
TeraBond is a powder, and is twelve times more concentrated than Olaplex Step 1.
It can be used as-is and added directly to salon processes and it can be formulated into two-part salon systems (e.g. Step1 and Step 2) as well as at-home treatments (e.g. Step 3, etc.).
In the image below, virgin black hair tresses were repeatedly bleached (50 minutes, five times, 40 vol developer), followed by an extreme two-hour bleaching. A trained panel evaluated the No Treatment-, TeraBond- and Olaplex-treated tresses.
|Ease of Combing||2/10||9/10||8/10|
|Breakage w/ Combing||Yes||None||None|
|Natural Fiber Wave||1/10||7/10||5/10|
TeraBond repairs keratin bonds which allows hair to repel moisture.
