Did you know that your hair cuticle naturally contains a protective cell membrane complex that’s vital for hair health, softness and shine? Although this lipid is hard to remove, it can gradually wear away with repeated use of heated styling tools and exposure to UV rays, leaving your tresses looking dry and damaged. Luckily for us, Philip Kingsley have a solution with their newest addition to the best-selling Bond Building collection: the Philip Kingsley Bond Builder Lipid Shield Oil.
Discover how it works and why it’s a must-have for frizzy, tangled and damaged hair with my Bond Builder Lipid Oil review…
The Most Important Thing About The Philip Kingsley Bond Builder Oil Is…
Its advanced biometric technology! The hair oil’s innovative formula supports and replenishes the lipid layer (AKA your hair’s first line of defence) by coating each individual hair strand to protect the hair cuticle and the bolds inside your hair’s cortex. But why does it do this? To restore and replenish your locks for super-silky, high-shine results.
Part of the fan-favourite Bond Builder range, the Lipid Shield Oil also strengthens, detangles and defrizzes hair. In fact, 9 out of 10 users felt their hair was more resistant to damage and more resilient.

Inspired by your hair’s natural lipid layer, the Bond Builder Lipid Shield Oil contains an 18-MEA derivative (that’s the primary lipid that sits on the surface of your hair) to replenish lost lipids and make hair water-repellent, therefore reduce its vulnerability to environmental stress.
Camellia oil has been added to the Philip Kingsley Bond Builder Lipid Shield Oil as it’s rich in omega 9, antioxidants and vitamins A, D, C and E that defend against external aggressors. To complete the mix, castor oil and sebacic acid blend together to seal cuticles that have been damaged by colour, bleaching, perming and thermal straightening.
