Tough Love: From Damaged Hair to Instant Repair

Tough Love: From Damaged Hair to Instant Repair

Has all that styling been damaging your hair?

Well, hello there Style Queen! We know that you spend a good portion of your life in pursuit of the perfect hair color and texture. That means you’re probably spending a lot of time coloring your hair, trying chemical treatments, and hot tool styling. In fact, a poll of NYM users revealed that most of you used some sort of damaging treatment three or more times per week – that’s a lot of potential damage!

Then again, maybe you’re style conscious in an entirely different way. If this sounds like you, you prefer spending time on the style and texture of your hair over the dramatic effect. You might enhance your virgin hair with sleek ponytails or sophisticated buns. And while your look is more natural, the results are anything but boring.

No matter how you enhance or style your hair, you could probably use a bit more shine and strength. And even if you’re not facing dryness, dullness, or frizz daily tugging or pulling your hair into those cute styles could be causing breakage.
So, what now? You definitely need some Tough Love.

Meet Not Your Mother’s NEW Bonding Line: Tough Love

You’ve probably been hearing about bond building, bond maintenance, and bond repair products for the past couple of years. Or maybe your stylist and friends have been raving to you about how bond-building products make their hair look incredible. That’s all well and good, but how are bond-building products different than other hair care products?

What do bond-building products do?

We’ll make it super easy to understand since bond-building products can be a very complicated topic! Every strand of your hair is made up of teeny tiny chemical bonds which are invisible to the naked eye. Every time you color your hair, you damage those bonds. The same goes for twisting your hair into a ponytail. After a while, your hair can become so damaged overall that it becomes visible. Very visible. Bond products use amino acids to repair your hair and strengthen it from within so that all you see is bounce, shine, and volume. And in case you’re wondering, like all NYM products, the Tough Love collection is vegan and sulfate free.

What’s your love language?

Some of us show our love with a lot of touch and hugging. Others find that their love language involves homemade treats for their loved ones. At Not Your Mother’s, our love language is pampering and beautifying your hair. And with the Tough Love bonding collection, we go a little deeper and work even harder to add sheen and strengthen your hair from the inside out.
