The must-have system for moisturizing and repairing all types of damaged hair. With a concentrated bonding care complex that reinforces awakened bonds, the acidic bonding concentrate regimen strengthens hair and balances hair PH.


Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate is a professional salon treatment designed to repair and strengthen damaged hair. The treatment uses a combination of ingredients, including citric acid and taurine, to help reinforce weakened hair bonds and restore the hair’s strength and resilience. Redken ABC Treatment is designed to add moisture and protein back into the hair. Your stylist will use the Redken treatment guide to formulate the best mixture of moisture and protein for optimal results.

The Acidic Bonding Concentrate treatment works by penetrating the hair shaft and targeting areas of damage, such as chemically treated or over-processed hair. It helps to rebuild and fortify the hair structure, reducing breakage and improving overall hair health.

Does my hair lack moisture?

When we say that hair needs moisture, it means that the hair is lacking proper hydration or moisture content. Hair requires a balance of moisture to maintain its health, elasticity, and overall appearance. Moisture helps to keep the hair hydrated, soft, and manageable.

Several factors can lead to hair becoming dry or lacking moisture. These include environmental factors like exposure to sun, wind, and dry air, as well as heat styling, chemical treatments, and over washing. Additionally, certain hair types, such as naturally curly or textured hair, tend to be more prone to dryness.

When hair lacks moisture, it can become dull, brittle, and prone to frizz. It may also experience increased breakage and difficulty in styling. Hair that lacks moisture may feel rough to the touch, lose its natural shine, and be more susceptible to damage.

Does my hair lack protein?

When we say that hair lacks protein, it means that the hair strands have a deficiency in the protein content that is essential for its strength, structure, and overall health. Protein is a vital component of hair as it helps to build and maintain its structure, including the hair shaft, cuticle, and cortex.

Hair primarily consists of a protein called keratin, which provides strength and resilience. However, various factors can lead to a depletion of protein in the hair. These factors include excessive heat styling, chemical treatments (such as perming or relaxing), frequent color treatments, exposure to harsh environmental conditions, and overexposure to the sun.

When hair lacks protein, it can exhibit certain signs and characteristics. The hair may feel weak, brittle, and prone to breakage. It may have a rough texture, appear frizzy, and have split ends. Hair that lacks protein may also lose its natural elasticity and become more susceptible to damage.
