Hair rebonding straightens your hair through the application of a chemical. There’s no reason to pay big money to a hair salon for this treatment. You can do it yourself at home. However, hair professionals recommend you don’t attempt it because mistakes could cost you dear. You’ll need to take care when carrying out hair rebonding at home. Get a friend or relative to do the rebonding for you. You would find it difficult to properly treat the back of your own head. This is a slow, time-consuming job and it will take about four hours to treat shoulder length hair. If you have long hair, try to get two friends to do the work together, each having responsibility for one side of your head.
Wash the hair thoroughly with a mild shampoo. Do not apply conditioner. Dry the hair with a hair dryer on medium heat. Don’t rub the hair with a towel and don’t worry about styling.
Separate the hair into sections and fix each sector with hair clips. Plan to work around the head systematically, dealing with the front top of the head. It doesn’t matter whether your friend then proceeds around the head clockwise or anti-clockwise, just as long as she follows the same direction for each layer.
Soak a towel in boiling water. While wearing gloves, wring it out and then wrap it around your head, covering all the hair. Leave it on for at least 10 minutes. This period may be longer, depending on the strength of the cream and the condition of your hair. Check the box of relaxant for precise instructions on timing.
Remove the hot towel and rinse your hair with warm water. Blow dry again on medium heat.
Use the ceramic flat iron from the top to the bottom of your hair. This will straighten the hair, which, until now, will still be curly.
