5.Do not blow dry & tie your hair

You should not tie your hair for a month or so, because it can lead in hair damage. The damages may not be repairable too. You shouldn’t use a hair dryer or flat iron to dry your hair. Let it dry naturally every time you wash it.


Do not attempt to change hair style

One of the most essential things is that you must never think of changing your hairstyle after rebonding. This can affect the health of your hair entirely. Even if the hair stylists recommend you to highlight your hair or to style it after a month, you should know better, since this is your hair. It will be best to stay away from other hairstyle and from using various styling products. Hair rebonding will provide you with straight and silky hair just like celebs on TV and movies. But the truth is that, hair rebonding can make your hair vulnerable and if you will not take care of it, you do not have any options at all. You will lose your hair completely and the damages can be repaired anymore. The chemicals used in the rebonding process can damage the hair and you need to take care of it to make it healthy even after the procedure.

The pros and cons after hair rebonding

The cons

Never tie your hair using a rubber band, never tuck the hair behind the ears and never use a plastic headband or clip for the hair. All of these will leave marks on your hair and that can create a permanent mark, which will make the hair prone to breakage. If you need to tie the hair, you can use a soft or cotton elastic thing as a better alternative.

You also shouldn’t allow the hair to be dehydrated. Chemically treated hair is more vulnerable than normal hair type. You need to apply a leave in conditioner and serum all the time. Dehydrated hair will become lifeless and hard to manage and it has the tendency to break and have split ends.

Do not wet the hair on the swimming pool. Swimming pool water contains high amounts of chlorine. It will rip off the treatment for your hair and will make it prone to hair damage. If you want to swim, you need to put on a leave in conditioner, but do not swim with a hair cap.

Bleaching the hair is not advisable after hair rebonding. You need to discuss this with your hair stylists and other things that you want to do to your hair.

The pros

Get a regular treatment. Getting a regular treatment is highly advisable and this must be done every month to make sure that the hair is well hydrated. In some hair salons, they have the Mucota hair treatment, this is best for chemically treated hair. The result will be visible instantly and you will be happy with the result on your hair. The hair will look fresh and well hydrated and it will become light & free from damages. This is a result of a scientific formulation that helps in sealing the protein from the cuticles of the hair.

Get a regular trip. By doing this, you can keep the hair in a healthy condition, it will not just eliminate split ends, but it will also help in preventing severe damages from taking place. It will keep your hair in good shape.

Eat a balance diet. When you eat nutritious types of foods and incorporate nuts, cashews, almonds and fresh fruits and veggies, you will be able to promote healthy hair. Your chances of having hair fall will be minimized and there will be higher chances of hair growth.

Additional information

Rebonded or not it is not advisable to wash your hair often. Over washing your hair may lead to severe dryness due to loss of the hair. When to wash your hair? It will be best to wash the hair after every 3 days or so, depending on your hair needs. Do you know that a day old hair is much better than freshly washed hair?

You shouldn’t towel dry your hair too. Wrapping the hair with a towel can cause damage to your hair. It doesn’t mean that when you see your favorite celeb wrapped in a towel after bathing, that means it is the right way to dry your hair. Towels can make a harsh friction over the hair cuticle that scrubs off the oils in it and then damages the strands of the hair. It will be best to use an old T shirt or a microfiber cloth for drying your hair.

When you apply a conditioner on your hair, focus on the ends of the hair, because these are the ones that need hydration. When the scalp is covered with conditioner, you will end up causing build ups. You need to take care of your hair regardless if it is rebonded or not.

    Hi there! I’ve had my hair rebonded last December 26, and I know that I should wash it after three days, but my hair is so oily and my scalp is so itchy already. Can I wash it now? Or do I still need to wait for that three days? Hope you reply. Thank you!

    my hair was being rebonded awhile ago. it took 5 hours because the strand is thick n curly hair…
    i was surprised when the beautician told me that only once to iron the hair which is after applying the medicine or rebond cream…
    i can still remember with my previous salon that they iron my hair twice – after medicine and after final output…
    there’s also one salon that they did thrice – after medicine and twice after final output…
    my concern is which of them has done correctly to my hair?

    I also had my hair done by a salon professional in our home. Im from Philippines and rebonding of hair is common here. Idk maybe the media makes it look cool to have a sleak shiny straight hair. So Im on my 2nd day after the rebonding process. The person who rebonded my hair (btw she has been rebonding my hair and my sister for at least 6 years now), the problem my hair got damaged due to uncontrollable reason – its because of my hair color! ughh… if I had known I shouldve not done hair color 2 months before this rebond… So anyways I did not got angry at her since she’s practically family to me.. But I do have this great treatment (Im not promoting and I seldom write comments on websites btw), Im thinking I will wash my hair tonight with that hair treatment (bought from a supplier the same brand of treatment she used on my hair).. Its called argan hair butter oil.. Im hoping it can soften my hair and minimized damaged. She suggested I should cut my hair at least 1.5 inches – 7 days after shampooing.Ill try to minimize the use of shampoo for 1 week and use only conditioner. I hope I can stand another day with this sticky and lifeless hair of mine. Cross fingers.

      No it won’t. You will remove the chemical relaxer from your hair and your hair won’t remain straight. After you wash your hair in over 3 days, your hair will look less straighten and it won’t be as shiny like the day you got your hair rebonded.

  11. Hi I need ur advice

    My hair was rebonded last year and it has a bad result. I follow the steps like not washing my hair for 3 days. And 3 days after I’d been rebonded my hair I’d cut my hair to shorten it a bit. After that day I lose so many hair strands and it leaves a bald section of my scalp. My dad and mom are so worried and now I planned to rebond my hair again. And my curly and freezy hair came back after a week. ?My questions are : What is the problem that I’d lose so much hair strands? , and It is adviceable to rebond my hair again after that bad experience?
