This new masque gives you a quick fix to rapidly restore hair that’s damaged and brittle from bleaching, fried from excessive heat styling, or dulled by daily exposure to sun and pollution. Let’s find out why Alterna’s Restructuring Bond Repair Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque is the truly unique treatment step that puts you back on the path to healthy-looking hair and how to use it to get the results you’re craving.
Innovative Ingredients that Nourish
Restructuring Bond Repair Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque is perfect for anyone who wants to seriously strengthen their strands to reduce breakage while amping up softness and shine. It’s a multi-benefit product that continues working after repeated washes and its unique application ritual adds a rich and satisfying sensorial element to your at-home haircare routine. Key ingredients include:
Caviar Bond Enforcing Technology. This Alterna exclusive is featured in all Bond Repair products and helps seal damaged hair cuticles and leaves hair with a glass-like shine.
Biomimetic lipids mimic hair’s natural protective lipid layer to reduce the appearance of frizz and flyaways and improve hair quality.
Amino acids strengthen strand structure, moisturize, smooth surface damage, and fight frizz.
Maracuja oil enhances smoothness and reduces breakage.
Murumuru seed butter improves dry and wet hair combability while reducing static.
Finally, our signature Restructuring Bond Repair aroma—green tea and bergamot with notes of soothing almond—leaves your hair smelling as amazing as it looks.
3 Transformational Tips for Every Use
Restructuring Bond Repair Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque is a truly unique product that works differently so follow these specific application instructions to unlock its full transformative potential.
Transformational Tip #1: Skip the Conditioner
Two reasons not to use conditioner and Restructuring Bond Repair Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque at the same time; Reason one: conditioner will prevent the masque from fully penetrating each strand which blocks its ability to help smooth cracks and fissures in the cuticle. Reason two: the combination of products will leave your hair looking limp and greasy. Used on its own, the leave-in masque will leave your hair fully conditioned.
Transformational Tip #2: Use a Small Amount
When it comes to the Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque, less is more. Start with one or two pumps or about a dime-size amount. Add more as needed. Using more product than you need can make hair feel drier. Plus, using less will make the bottle last longer—expect to get up to 24-28 treatments per bottle.
Transformational Tip #3: Activate with Heat Styling
Although you don’t want to go overboard with heat styling, it can deliver incredible results when done carefully. Using a blow-dryer or diffuser after applying the Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque to help smooth the cuticle and leave hair feeling soft with a glass-like shine. And the best part is it offers heat protection up to 450°F/232°C
Not near a hot tool? You can air-dry after applying the Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque, but it performs best with heat.
How to Get the Best Results
With the three tips in mind, here’s the full step-by-step for using Restructuring Bond Repair Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque:
1) Shampoo hair but do not use conditioner.
2) Work a small amount of the product through towel-dried hair from mid-lengths to ends, one pump at a time.
3) Blow-dry or diffuse to activate the treatment. For extra care between washes, apply a pea-sized amount onto dry hair to help smooth ends.
Restructuring Bond Repair Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque is really designed to help restore the appearance of hair when it needs a serious make-over—it’s not a substitute for your ordinary go-to conditioner or masque. Incorporate it into your routine until you’ve nursed your damaged hair back to health, then resume your regular healthy hair favorites (including conditioner!), from a high-quality line like Alterna’s Replenishing Moisture collection. When you notice damage creeping its way back in—whether from chemical, physical, or environmental stressors—it’s time to break out the Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque again. Lather, rinse, repeat. For best results, when hair is damaged, we recommend using the Restructuring Bond Repair Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque once a week as part of your routine and alternating the more intensive masque with the Restructuring Bond Repair Masque.
One last piece of advice: Pay attention to how your hair looks and feels when it’s healthy and how it looks and feels when it’s damaged. (Learn the top signs your hair is healthy.) Understanding the state of your strands will help you decide when it’s time for a hair health intervention with Intensive Leave-In Treatment Masque! No two people will have the exact same journey with this product, but the results will always be stronger**, shinier, softer, and smoother*** hair.
