How to Maintain your Hair
Maintain after rebonding
What is Rebonding all about?
Rebonding is all about straightening and flattening of hair for a smoother and not to mention a straighter look. This is usually done by a professional who uses a mix of hot combs, irons and chemical relaxers to reach the desired effect. This can actually tame the otherwise stubborn and unmanageable hair within a matter of hours. This effect stays for a longer time as compared temporary straightening solutions like ironing and blow drying.
As you finish the procedure of rebonding your stylist will tell you that you should avoid these things right after it:
- Not to wash your hair, or rather prevent any kind of contact with your hair for the next three days at least.
- Do not tie it at any cost especially after rebonding as the hair is taking a shape so it is better to steer clear of anything that can damage the shape.
- Keep away from hair accessories for all kinds for the same.
- Do not tuck your hair at the back of your ears
- If possible use a shower cap while bathing.
