We’ve Bottled Time Travel For Your Hair
Great hair gives us confidence, complements our features, may indicate how we take care of ourselves, and can even reveal some of our personality. Overall, it enhances our beauty that emanates from within. Not to mention, it can certainly contribute to the perfect selfie (which yes, many of us strive to achieve 😉). But what is “great” hair if not the healthiest hair you can possibly have?!
For those of you wondering how healthy your hair is currently, try this test: wet a strand and stretch it out…if it bounces back, you have properly balanced moisture and protein levels, if it stretches more than it should or breaks, you need some hair help. Most are in the latter category, so don’t worry if you are too.
In our quest for great hair and flexibility in styling and looks, we often use chemical services like color, bleaching, perms, or relaxers, and lots of heat styling - given all of these stressors, there is a solution that just about every person needs in their hair care routine: the reconstructor. Simply put, reconstructors contain protein (hair is 90% protein by the way), and work to restore structural integrity to the hair. Don’t confuse them with deep conditioners which add moisture, but do not actually repair. A high-performance reconstructor will multi-task by not only repairing damage from all of the rigors of chemical services and heat styling, but will also impart additional moisture, rebuild areas of your hair where protein is lacking, prevent future breakage, and restore elasticity. They’re literally a miracle worker for your hair!
Our UltraRepair Reconstructing Masque is our clean ingredient high-performance answer to a reconstructor with the unique quality of being able to be left in your hair overnight for maximum results, whereas most reconstructors cannot be left in overnight (please be careful and read product instructions thoroughly).
This intensive treatment is reparative for hair that has been compromised by color or bleach processing, heat styling, or environmental factors - especially wind and winter weather or sun and salt/pool water. It’s highly effective for smoothing coarse, curly, or frizz-prone hair and protecting it from breakage, dehydration, tangles, and split ends. It also happens to be the perfect weekly self-care ritual for a mindful “me-time" moment. We call it a time-traveler because this clean beauty favorite results in bouncy, shiny, silky, and strong hair, no matter its previous condition!
How To Use It: Shampoo, rinse and towel dry hair lightly, then apply UltraRepair until hair is modestly saturated (thin layer of saturation) and comb through with wide tooth comb for even distribution. Bag hair (shower cap style baggie) and wait 15 minutes (or as long as overnight) before rinsing. After rinsing, towel dry hair (wrap hair in either a t-shirt or hair towel for gentle drying) and apply either StartSmart or SmartVolume Leave-in Conditioner spray for heat protection and other benefits, then style as desired.
Note For Our Curly Girls: once or twice a week, skip your conditioner and instead comb in UltraRepair and don’t rinse it out - curls need additional moisture and repair so your locks will love you for it!
Bonus: Well + Good called UltraRepair a “Strand Savior” and suggests wearing the masque while you work out because “the heat from your body—especially the heat from your head—will help to open the cuticle of your hair, which allows for deeper penetration.” Time saver X time traveler = YES!
Here’s what EVOLVhers are saying:
“I ordered the small 2oz size of this to try. I've been searching for a product that wouldn't strip my color and repair my split ends and this did the job!!! It had been 5 weeks since my last color and my hair was dry and dull. I applied this just before my hair appointment and my hair stylist exclaimed how healthy my hair was! I will now go and order a large bottle of this awesome stuff! P.S. I would have bought it for the heavenly citrus smell alone!” —Amy, Real Life #EVOLVher
"I can't rave enough about this masque. My hair has been reborn into soft, shiny happiness. This product smells like fruity heaven, but not in an overwhelming way and it's easy to use. My stylist uses it on me, but I bought my own bottle to use it every week." —Valerie, Real Life #EVOLVher
“My hair has never felt this good! I've been self conscious about my natural hair for the past 10 years but this mask (combined with the SmartCurl Wash & Conditioner) has made me confident to wear my hair natural. My hair now smells incredible, is soft and shiny, and the curls aren't frizzy at all, they're defined and wavy. I've already used up half a bottle of this mask, and will definitely be stockpiling it and the SmartCurl line so if an apocalypse happens, I will still have beautiful hair. Thank you for making confidence-boosting products for us ladies. You've made me a lifelong customer.” —Lucy, Real Life EVOLVher
Pro Tip: For even more moisture and to prevent frizz, cocktail UltraRepair with your conditioner (½ and ½) every time you wash! —Boris Oak, Founder
Pro Tip For Color-Treated Hair: Many of our salon stylist partners use UltraRepair as a pre-color treatment and you can do the same at home. For beautiful, longer lasting color without the damage, simply apply the masque on the day you color and don’t rinse it out! —Boris Oak, Founder
