You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone with perfectly healthy hair that couldn't benefit from a damage-repair product. Whether your strands are regularly exposed to heat stylers, the sun, or color treatments, chances are they could use a little extra TLC. Instead of adding another step to your routine, though, reach for the Oribe Power Drops Damage Repair Booster becomes extremely helpful. They'll take any product—whether it be your favorite curl cream or a heat protectant—and make it restorative.

This super-concentrated serum helps you level up your regular routine with its reparative, strand-fortifying formula. It's powered by linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that strengthens and repairs damaged hair by rebuilding its structure.

“Research has found that including oleic and linoleic acid in hair care products helps the scalp absorb other ingredients faster and more efficiently,” Hadley King, MD, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York City, previously told Well+Good. “Another study found that linoleic acid promotes hair growth by enhancing how hair follicles work and extending their life cycles so that they're able to grow more hair."

Also on the ingredients list? Biotin, which stimulates keratin production to strengthen strands and reduce breakage; Vitamin-rich sea kelp extract, which hydrates and smooths hair while improving elasticity and softness; and Oribe's signature complex, a blend of fruit and flower extracts that protects hair from the drying and damaging effects of oxidative stress, photoaging, and natural keratin deterioration.

These drops have a lightweight, serum-like texture, making them great for any hair type (they're viscous enough to work on coarse, curly hair, but not so heavy that they'll weigh down finer textures). Just mix in three to five drops of the booster into your go-to leave-in hair care products. You can also use the drops on their own on damp hair.

I regularly heat style my hair and have a texturizer (a chemical treatment that loosens my curl pattern) so I'm always looking for ways to fortify my strands. I love mixing a few drops of the Oribe Power Drops in with my go-to heat protectants from the Mizani Press Agent line, because it adds reparative benefits without requiring me to add another step to my routine. Hit "shop now" above to get these drops for yourself.
