FAQ

Bond building has become of key importance to hairstylists performing salon color services, especially those that include lightening. It’s such a hot topic that even clients are coming into the salon and requesting bond-building services and products. But what is bond building? Is there just one type of bond? See the chart below to discover more about hair bonds, how they contribute to healthy hair, and how and when they are damaged and broken:

Joico’s new Defy Damage ProSeries harnesses the power of three proven “hair heroes” along with intelligent SmartRelease Technology to protect and strengthen hair bonds before, during, and after every color and lightening service. It also works brilliantly as a stand-alone treatment to help rebuild, strengthen, and protect hair from the inside out.

No, Defy Damage addresses existing damage as well as future damage.

During product use, SmartRelease Liposomes are deposited onto hair strands. Over time, each SmartRelease Liposome bursts open to release Keratin, Arginine, and Rosehip Oil.

Keratin and Arginine penetrate the hair to repair damaged sites and strengthen hair, while Rosehip Oil adds softness and shine to the cuticle layer. The result: instantly 50% less breakage, and a continuous release of healthy-hair ingredients makes hair stronger and less prone to future damage.

Spray onto dry hair (following the spraying tips from the hangtag). Then shampoo and follow with ProSeries 2. Leave in hair for up to 5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. We recommend using the Defy Damage Protective Shield to blow-dry the hair after treatment for added protection.

Our lab testing shows SmartRelease liposomes remain active on the hair through three shampoos.

No, the ProSeries is for ultimate damage prevention and color perfection. The K-PAK Hair Repair System is formulated to treat moderate to severely damaged/compromised hair.

It is not necessary since you used ProSeries 1 before prelightening; the most damaging service.

It is not necessary to use a cuticle sealer with the ProSeries. ProSeries 2 balances pH for optimal bond regeneration and color protection, all without interfering with color deposit.

Yes, but for best results, we recommended using the Defy Damage Protective Shield in conjunction with the shampoo and conditioner.
