Hair Rebonding is the new age technique to transform your unmanageable wavy and curly locks to a set of glossy, straight tresses having an appearance of a layer of black satin. It is the dream of all stylish women to have beautiful hair. Hair Rebonding change this dream to reality. This is the one of the most happening fashion trend followed by the girls of the present generation.
The process of hair rebonding is actually a chemical process, which is somehow similar to the process of hair straightening. The procedure goes about like this. All the hair types are attributed with a particular bond, which is natural. It can be curly, wavy or straight. In hair rebonding, the hair of curly or wavy nature is passed through some chemical exposure. Relaxants or softeners are applied on the hair to break the bond and then again by the application of a neutralizer the physical bond is restructured. Thus a wavy or a curly hair gets a straight look. The hair rebonding is to some extent a permanent process, until the hair grows longer.
The time required for a complete rebonding session depends upon the length of the hair. Hair till the shoulder takes about 4 hours and till mid back it might take 8 hours or more. The process involves washing the hair with a mild shampoo, conditioner is not used. After this the hair has to be blow dried fully. Then the entire hair is partitioned in shafts and the relaxants are applied in each shaft. The hair shafts decked with the cream softener or relaxant are kept straight by means of a thin plastic board. The relaxant is left for about ˝ hour depending on the hair type. Over exposure to the softener can be harmful to the scalp and the hair. After this the hair is steamed for 10 to 40 minutes according to the type of the hair and then rinsed off. The next step is to blow dry the hair and apply the keratin lotion. Then the hair is ironed with a flat iron. A ceramic iron is better than the metal ones. It is done to remove the curls still remaining. The expert stylist will keep on ironing until the hair look straight and gleaming. After this a neutralizer is applied to rebind the hair and stabilize it. It is kept for about 30 minutes. The neutralizer is washed off with cold water and then the hair is again blow dried. A hair serum is applied to give body to the hair. Lastly the hair is again ironed to attribute it with the final touch up.
