Maintaining healthy hair is the color client's #1 concern. 80% of these clients would pay more for an additional service to help protect their hair from damage during the technical service.*
Smartbond is our new 2-step bond strengthening system that protects and strengthens the hair during technical service. It is the perfect complement to L'Oréal Professionnel Hair Color and Lighteners.
The Smartbond Salon Kit includes the Step 1 Additive and Step 2 Pre Shampoo and provides up to 70 applications. The Step 1 Additive helps protect strong bonds and strengthen weak bonds for a stronger hair fiber during the technical service. The Step 2 Pre Shampoo helps to restore weak bonds and brings additional care, smoothness and shine to the hair.
The system also includes the Step 3 Conditioner. The Step 3 Conditioner is an at-home protective rinse-out treatment, sold separately.
