The heart always desires what it does not have! So when you look at the mirror and you see straight hair, you want fun curls but when you see  curly hair, you want the sexy sleek straight look!

Back in the days genetics was the only thing that had any control over this and we had no control over our genes. But today, we have many technologies that can give you the look you want with fairly good results. 

What is Hair Rebonding?

This is method of chemically relaxing the hair so that the curls can be turned straight. This treatment is suggested for woman with voluminous and unmanageable hair. When done right, this procedure tames down the hair quite well and its effects last for a fairly long time.

Procedure for Hair Rebonding:

Our hair has a certain characteristic due to the bonds that the protiens have between them. This is why some people has curly, wavvy or straight hair. To change the look, we need to change the bonds i.e. alter the bonding between the protien molecules.

Rebonding hair is a procedure that requires the use of two chemicals:

  1. Cream softener or relaxant
  2. Neutralizer
The cream softener is first applied to the hair and allowed to sit for a while. This agent breaks down  the natural bonding of the hair allowing it to be set in the way we want and the neutralizer forms fresh bonds that gives our hair the straight look.
The steps are as follows.
  • Hair is first washed with a mild shampoo
  • The relaxant is then applied and left for half an hour. This is then steamed and washed off.
  • The hair is now straightened in sections
  • To the straightened hair, the neutralizer is applied that resets the bonds
  • The neutralizer is rinsed off
  • The hair is again blow dried and a serum is applied.
You are then asked not to wash your hair for 3 days after.
Are your thinking about hair rebonding at home? It is possible but it is strictly advised against as a lot of chemicals are used and is best done under supervision of an expert.
Pro’s:
This one is but obvious! You have that sleek look you have been craving for all along.
Con’s:
This is something you need consider more seriously.
  • Your hair will be subjected to chemical damage during the process no matter how many precautions you take.
  • Hair can fall very easily after this procedure as the roots are weakened. It is a lot of careful handling.
  • The risk of burns from straightener or the chemical always stands
  • Tucking your hair or tying it up tight can also damage hair. You will have to keep lose at most times.
  • The touch ups will further weaken your hair over each sitting leaving your hair very susceptible to other damages too.
It is for this reason that people are advised to think about it very carefully before they consent for this procedure.

  • Ira

    Hi. I just rebonded my hair. And at night 2, i woke up with weird hair style as in below of hair are not too straight as before. Will my hair never be straight again like day 1 after i just rebonded?

  • melberrys

    Hi. I just rebonded my hair for the first time 3 days ago and just washed and conditioned my hair just now. Problem is, there’s one spot on my head (like 2 inches in diameter) that has very fine curls on the root like it’s damaged. It’s only on the root and only for like 0.5mm, but it’s coarse to the touch and the spot is quite obvious…..

    My question is… what is this? Is my hair damaged only on that area? Or is it normal for rebonded hair? Or is it because of the chemicals? Can the hairdresser repair that area or it’s already permanently damaged? Help, I’m so scared!

    p/s: Great post btw. Thanks to your article, I managed to delay my rebonding appointment so I can prepare myself mentally before changing my virgin hair completely. It’s understandable if my hair is damaged on that area, but I’d be happier if there’s a solution for this. Please… thanks.

    • Ivy

      its definitely serious if you don’t know it yet! i’m so sorry for you. YOU SHOULD SUE THE HAIRDRESSER!

    • Estée M.

      After rebonding make sure after your regular shampoo routine that you use a very moisturizing conditioner like the kerastase masque. I have been rebonding my hair for 5 years and this conditioner is excellent. Start at the tips of your hair and work the lather up and leave it on for at least 5 minutes after which you do a cold rinse. Your hair will look like the day you had it rebonded :)

  • kat

    I got my hair rebonded stupidly on vacation in Philippines visiting family. Everyone convinced me to do it, had I done proper research of it before, I would have not. After getting it rebonded, my hair was constantly oily and always falling out. The only solution I could think of to get rid of it faster was to cut it. I cut off 9 inches of hair (about to my chin) and have to let it slowly grow back out again. Its been six months since I got it rebonded. My hair texture isn’t the same, but since cutting off so much my hair has stopped falling out as much, it’s thicker and healthier again. Its grown out to about my shoulders and even though I hate the length I have to constantly remind myself that this was for the best. Even now my hair isn’t the same and I miss my curls. I wOULD NEVER encourage anyone to get their hair rebonded unless they are prepared for the downfall.

  • dona

  • sonia

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Rose! yes can go ahead and dye your hair as it has been an year that you got your hair rebounded. A minimum period of six months should be maintained before trying out something new on hair after undergoing hair rebound treatment.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Eyah, after hair rebonding, any new haircut will fall flat. So, it is recommended by the professionals that one should get a haircut before you apply chemicals.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Jane, it is advisable to not mess with your hair for at least six months – that means no hair coloring, no streaks, no highlighting and no rebounding. As your hair needs to relax after the high dose of straightening chemicals.However to repair the damage you can trim your hair, apply conditioner and serum or use hair masks frequently or get hair spas done to moisturize your hair.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Shannon, the basic care for rebonded hair invloves no coloring or dyeing hair for atleast six months after the procedure. If your dye is chemical based one then it may lead to dry and damaged hair. During the rebound procedure your hair is subjected to various chemical treatments. Hence it is advisable to not to dye your hair for the next four months.

  • shaima

    Hi,i just got my hair rebonded yesterday, Can i swim after three days or no? Thank u

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Dear Shaima, hair stylists usually tell you to avoid swimming in the pool for at least 1 month after hair rebound procedure. You should be fine though after three days. Make sure your hair is wet before you go into the pool and if at all possible put conditioner in your hair and braid it or put it under a cap to keep your hair from absorbing the chlorine. Once a week use a shampoo that will remove any chlorine build-up and shampoo and recondition your hair after every trip to the pool.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Dear Shirley, rebounding hair is a chemical procedure where you need to take good care of tresses post the procedure, which includes no hair coloring, no streaks, no highlighting. Your hair needs to relax after the high dose of straightening chemicals.It is good to avoid usage of any heating tools. That means no blow drying too for a couple of months. Using them may turn your hair weak and brittle. Secondly there are various good conditioners for rebound hair that you can use such as Wella Professional Enrich Shampoo & conditioner for Straightened Hair, Matrix OptiCare Smooth & Straight, Rusk Keratin Care Smoothing Shampoo& conditioner, Schwarzkopf Bonacure Repair Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner and L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Liss Ultime Shampoo. These range of shampoos and conditioners will keep your hair moisturized, protects chemically treated hair from damage and keeps it healthier. Hope you find these tips and info to be useful !!

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Shine, there are few steps to follow once your hair goes through rebounding process. One of the way to care for rebounded hair is not to wash or wet the hair for three days from the date of the procedure. So if you have undergone the procedure on Friday, then you can wash your hair off on the following Tuesday.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Lu, yes you can go for a touch up as rebonded hair needs a lot more care than regular hair. Due to all the chemical treatments it has undergone, it requires constant care and protection from damage. Maintaining the rebounded hair means regular touch ups at least within 6 months after the treatment. However you should also understand that the touch ups will further weaken your hair over each sitting leaving your hair very susceptible to other damages too.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Ericka, it advisable to not to wet hair for the next three days after the hair rebounding procedure. As you have completely a week then it is fine to go for your swimming classes, however do not let your hair stay in water for a long time and also use a swimming cap to protect your hair.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Bea, the golden rule of taking care of rebounded hair is not to wet your hair for three days after the procedure. As you have mentioned that you are going to wash your hair on thursday then it is alright to get a hair spa done on saturday or next week. Undergoing a hair spa treatment will moisturize your hair and will keep them healthy.

    Hi Munmun, rebounding of hair is a chemical process that alters the bonds of your hair. Certain chemicals are used to break the natural bonds of the cells in the hair and then they are rearranged to get straight hair. In this technique, a relaxant or a softener is used to break the natural bonds in the hair and then it is followed by the use of a neutralizer to re-bond the structure again, giving you the desired texture and bonding. However this process makes the hair weak, dry and fragile. If you are suffering from hairfall, you must avoid rebonding or any other chemical hair treatment. Always ensure that your hair remains hydrated and full of life. Use a conditioner every time you wash your hair. Apply a hair serum after towel drying hair. Oil your hair regularly. Use natural hair masks once a week before washing your hair. You can use aloe vera gel, curd or olive oil with an egg. Hope you find these tips to be useful.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Vaishali, tying hair or putting hair behind your ear should be avoid for the first three days after the procedure. As its been a month in your case then you can go ahead and tie your hair….you can also talk to your hair stylist about the different ways you can style your hair without disturbing the structure of your hair.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hey Munmun, regular oiling with any of the essential oils such as, coconut oil, almond oil, castor oil, olive oil depending upon your hair type is recommended. Steaming hair with hot towel after the application of oil will also prove to be beneficial, as steam will deep condition and moisturize your hairs and prevent from excessive breakage. When ever you go for any hair treatment, always ensure to keep a gap of six months between the treatments, so smoothening your hair in the month of November should be fine. Also consult with your hair stylist who can guide you better in taking care of your rebounded hair.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Iane, rebounding and dyeing hair..these two are chemical procedures and when it is done frequently..damages the hair roots and shaft. Whenever you rebound your hair …they are always susceptible to damage and turn brittle. You will need to be extra careful to keep them in a top condition. Do not change or mess with your hair for at least six months – that means no hair coloring, no streaks, no highlighting. You can also go for a hair cut and let your new hair grow.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Dheeksha, some of the general hair care tips for Straightened Hair are:
    1. Which ever hair straightening method that you used for your hair, you have to take special care of it. You should keep in mind the instructions given to you by your hair stylist. You will have to prevent it from getting dry and brittle.
    2. You should always rinse your hair thoroughly after you shampoo it, because the residue might remain stuck to the newly straightened hair.
    3. Use a leave-in conditioner and use it daily so that your hair is taken care of properly every day.
    4. Always detangle your hair strands using a wide toothed comb.
    5. Go for a deep conditioning treatment for your hair once a week or more depending on the instructions of your stylist.
    6. After the straightening procedure do not tie your hair for atleast three days and you can apply coconut oil as it will moisturize your scalp and prevents your hair turning dry.

    Hi Daisy, you need to avoid washing or rinsing hair for the next three days after the procedure, so wash your hair on Tuesday instead of Monday, and do not be worried about little water on your hair… make sure to just wipe them of quickly.

    Hi Ricky, after rebounding your hair, you should not apply anything on the hair or wet them for the next three days. Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner after three days. Leave the conditioner on your hair for extra minutes. Apply a hair serum regularly. Use a leave in conditioner.Use hair masks frequently or get hair spas done. Also follow a nutritious diet to keep your hair healthy.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Dear Itishree, during rebounding procedure your hair will be subjected to chemical damage, no matter how many precautions you take. Hair can fall very easily after this procedure as the roots are weakened. It is a lot of careful handling. Rebonded hair needs a lot more care than regular hair. Keep your hair safe from environmental factors – harsh sun rays, cold winds and the rains. Apply a hair serum regularly and use leave in conditioners. Have your hair trimmed on a regular basis. Use hair masks frequently or get hair spas done.

    Hi i reboned my hair on june 30th and im using total repair 5 conditioner and i dont know if its working cuz im always putting my hair up for 1 week so far and taking a shower often so am i doing good or not well

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi, it is important that you do not wet your hair for three days after the procedure. It is also necessary to not to tie your hair or put it on the back of your ears. The hair will be in a state where it acquires a shape. Always use cold water to wash your hair and not hot water. Apart from washing your hair, use hair masks frequently or get hair spas done, to keep your hair in top condition.

  • Soni Rathee

    Hey myself soni I had smoothing my hair last August after smoothing my hair is so weak in strength and very thin and hair fall In many of numbers I m worried about my hairs plzz help me what I do to control hair fall nd make hair strong and thick

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Soni, hair smoothing, rebounding or any chemical treatment that hairs undergo, makes the roots weak and prone to damage. All the hair treatments should be done in moderation. f you have already undergone smoothing treatments, then restrict the number of times you head for a touch up. Target not more than 3 smoothing treatments a year to avoid damaged hair that tends to break and fall. After each smoothing procedure, ensure you are thorough in your post hair-care follow up routine which means go out of your way to condition and hydrate your hair with nourishing ingredients. Maintenance is key to prevent hair damage. Use any shampoo that does not contain sulphate or sodium which dissolves keratin. Always wash hair with lukewarm water and never hot and end with a cold rinse. You can also use leave-in conditioners or serums that contain keratin, collagen or polypeptides that help strengthen brittle hair which breaks. Do invest in such hair care products and also in home remedies involving coconut oils, olives, eggs, and so on.

    Hi Jia, rebounding hair comes with a lot of con’s than pro’s. During the procedure, your hair will be subjected to certain chemical damage, no matter how many precautions you take. Hair can fall very easily after this procedure as the roots are weakened. The risk of burns from straightener or the chemical is always a possibility. Tucking your hair or tying it up tight can also damage hair. The touch ups will further weaken your hair over each sitting leaving your hair very susceptible to other damages too. Consider well before undergoing this procedure.
