The Good and the Bad of Hair Rebonding

Updated on February 8, 2017

The hair, also called a person’s crowning glory, is one of women’s greatest assets. It can project a woman’s personality when styled according to her preference. That is why several hair treatments are made available to further enhance the beauty of one’s hair, including hair rebonding. Hair rebonding is a process wherein the natural bonds of the hair are broken down through the use of chemicals and heat, rearranged, and bonded once again. The waves and curls are flattened so that the hair looks straight and beautiful. The result of this process promises silky, shiny, and sleek hair.

Some women are tempted to get a hair rebond because their hair is dull, frizzy, and unmanageable. But is hair rebonding really for you? Check out the benefits and side effects that you may experience from this hair treatment.

Benefits:

  • The first benefit of hair rebonding is that it gives permanent results. Unlike other hair treatments, rebonding your hair can make it permanently straight. Whether your hair is naturally straight with slight ‘S’ curve, or curly, it is guaranteed that you will have straight and silky hair at the end of the treatment.
  • Another benefit of the treatment is a marked improvement of your hair’s manageability when rebound. It lets you stand a windy environment without messing your hair. You can also style or tie your hair without compromising its straightness.

Downsides:

While there are several benefits of this particular hair treatment, it also has its own downsides. Most of them occur when a substandard chemical is used or a step during the treatment is not done properly.

  • For one, hair rebonding may cause hair breakage. The chemicals and heat applied during the process can take a toll on your hair and may make it break easily.
  • You might also notice you have more hair loss when you’ve gone through this treatment.
  • Another downside of this treatment is that you may sustain burns during the process. The straightening iron may not only burn your hair, but also your scalp as well.
  • Finally, even if the process leaves the hair permanently straight, it is also necessary to do a follow-up maintenance through hot oil treatments and such to keep it beautiful.
  • You may need to spend a few more bucks for a separate treatment.
  • The process of rebonding the hair doesn’t come cheap as well because of the number of hair products applied and its laborious process.

Conclusion

When deciding whether to rebond your hair, you should also take into consideration the type of hair rebond you want to achieve. You should also consider if you can afford the hair products you may need to purchase to keep your hair beautiful and prevent hair loss after the treatment. Finally, your stylist must be experienced enough in this kind of process in order to prevent harm and ultimately bring out the beauty of your hair.

Indeed, you need to carefully consider your decision if this process is going to give you more good than harm. Hair rebonding should help you feel and look more beautiful. Otherwise, there are other less risky and natural hair treatments that you can consider.

        Hi, mithila! Yes, hair fall after rebond is one known side effect, sadly you can only try to fix it with hair supplements like masks, oils etc.

        Hi! Urmi. Thanks for your question. It's definitely not ok to do hair rebound when your hair is damaged! You should first consult with your hairdresser or a specialist who is going to do the proсedure! I think you should fisrt fix your hair problem and only then if you still want your hair straight then do rebonding! Otherwise you can end up loosing your hair.

        Just google hair styling wax and you should find it! There is very little damage for the hair if you use it! Just like almost any hair styling product. (You might want specifically search for organic or narural ones to make sure its harmless for your hair)

        Oh sorry, the only way I know how to make hair look smooth in a ponytail is to use some hair wax! Or you may try to use hair straightener, but it's also maybe quite damaging for the hair especially if you do it often.

        Kaya, sorry i couldn't reply earlier. After treating hair and getting rebonded, you need to take care of your hair more than you used to do before.

        Maintaining the rebounded hair requires regular touch ups within 6 min months after the treatment.

        However it's difficult to say if this can effect someone's  education or not because in some cases even watching TV may effect it! It depends on the personal skill and motivation!

        Kaya, rebonding can be done at any age if you can go through a service that takes pretty long time. It really depends on a young lady. The only thing to worry about is the level of professionalism of the stylist. The consequnce of a poorly done job could be extreme breakage or chamical burns.
