Rebonding and Burned Hair

J at Filipination.com | General | Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

I had my hair rebonded for probably the third time, and I noticed that I had some fuzz sticking out near the crown of my head. Yikes, it looks like some of my hair got burned and all that was left was a somewhat circular area of really short hair fuzz.

I wonder how long it will take to grow this out.

Anyway, I hope the rest of my silky smooth hair will be enough distraction, so people will not notice that hopefully tiny spot. Still, some people are afraid that rebonding will damage your hair. Afterall, the chemical process does break the bonds of your hair before they are bonded again. That’s why they call it “rebonding.”

So what happened? It’s possible the temperature of the plantsa or iron was higher than 180 degrees, which explained why some hair got burned. I wonder, too, if they used a ceramic iron and ionic dryer. Perhaps since it was a home-service type of hair rebonding service (and quite affordable, too, I might mention), the equipment was probably not up to par.

Have you noticed if your rebonded hair has gotten weak? Does your hair break easily? Maybe that’s why they advise you to avoid wearing a rubber band and to simply let your hair hang loose (nakalugay). Hmmm… will I still go for another hair rebond in the future?

Some friends suggest to go for ironing instead of rebonding. Sure, the effects don’t last as long, but the lack of chemicals makes our hair safer, right?

  1. I have a rebonded hair now and I have to agree with you on the ‘fuzzy hair’ thing. I also noticed that weakening hair you mentioned. It’s quite a pain whenever I do some styling so I also leave it loose or nakalugay. Anyway, I’ll still go for rebonding again…for vanity sake! I’m obsessed with my hair kasi. :P

  3. I also have my hair rebonded. my tita who did my hair said na its better to use the titanium one. And kasabay ng neutralizer, its better na may halong pang cellophane.
