What is Hair Rebonding?
Hair rebonding needs no introduction. It is a very popular straightening treatment in the Philippines, and its popularity hasn’t wavered since it was introduced over a decade ago.
Hair rebonding transforms frizzy, naturally curly, wavy or unmanageable locks into sleek, silky straight hair.
A true transformative treatment, hair rebonding uses chemicals to straighten hair semi-permanently, by breaking your hair shaft’s natural bonds and rearranging them to form new bonds. If you want to achieve super straight, manageable hair for 6-7 months (or even more), then rebonding is for you.
Can hair rebonding damage your hair? The answer is yes. This process uses chemicals and heat, which can damage your hair. So it is very important to properly care for your hair after rebonding and go through deep-conditioning treatments regularly.
How long is the treatment and how long will it last?
The biggest benefit of hair rebonding is that you get straight, manageable hair for 6-7 months -- that's for a far longer time than any other hair straightening treatment. This will save you time to style or iron your hair daily.
Normally hair rebonding takes between 4-6 hours, but that includes the entire process including blow drying and flat ironing. So remember, rebonding is not for those who do not have the luxury of time. It is necessary for hair to soak in the chemicals needed to produce the desired straightening result.
Is rebonding safe for colored hair?
The answer is yes, but make sure that there is at least 4 weeks interval after you had your hair colored to prevent further damage. Also, you cannot color or bleach your hair after rebonding.
Can you do hair color and hair rebonding at the same time? The answer is yes, but this is risky, so make sure you only ask a skilled professional to do this.
Where can I have by hair rebonded?

Hair rebonding is not cheap. Since you already invested in transforming your hair, make sure you do proper post-treatment hair care.
Do not wash your hair and keep it from getting wet for 72 hours (3 days). The chemical bonds need time to settle and do their work on your hair. So bring an umbrella or a raincoat in case it does rain after your treatment!
Use only products recommended by your hairstylist. That means going for sulfate-free and chlorine-free shampoo. Avoid using headbands, hair clips, or hair ties for a few days. Do not use oil to condition your hair for 2 weeks.
It is recommended that you go for hair spa treatment or other conditioning treatment every two weeks as rebonding does involve strong chemicals and you need to keep your hair healthy.
Q: Is hair rebonding safe during pregnancy?
A: Although hair rebonding is considered safe as the chemicals may be strong but not toxic, JuanPlace will NOT do hair rebonding, Brazilian Blowout, or Brazilian Botox treatments on pregnant women. It's better to be safe than sorry.
Q. Does hair rebonding damage hair?

Q. Can I colour my hair after rebonding?
