After years of bleaching my hair to keep up with my favorite beige blonde, I finally decided to finally give my curls a much-needed break. It was not an easy decision, but I knew my hair would appreciate it. Now, as I’m getting used to my new, darker look, I’ve been on the hunt for products to help with the long-term color damage.
While browsing online, I discovered a haircare brand called Epres. The brand’s founder, Eric Pressly, is known for his work with developing cult-favorite Olaplex. He discovered his talent for innovation while pursuing his Ph.D. in materials science, working on everything from ground-breaking pharmaceuticals to inventing the bond-building category in haircare.
Epres was Pressly’s passion project during the COVID-19 pandemic and the unique patented molecular technology officially launched to the public in October 2022.
The brand is known for its Epres Bond Repair Treatment ($48) which is a bonding treatment that promises to repair heat or color damaged hair. The formula is highly concentrated and consists of just four 100% vegan, biodegradable ingredients. Naturally, I had to give it a try.
