Taking Shower in Cold Water

As we are recommending you to wash rebonded hair as few as possible, there is no barrier in taking showers to keep yourself clean and refreshed. In this regard, the instruction is, take showers in cold water. Coldwater but with suitable temperature, is very conducive in retaining moisture in the hair, protects hair shafts from damage.  It keeps hair shiny and silky.

  • Lukewarm water can be a good alternative for cold water
  • Use a shower cap, if it is not a washing day
  • Use dry shampoo instead wetting your rebonded hair

3. Deep Condition Your Rebonded Hair

Deep conditioning is a vital step for rebonded hair care. The only difference from regular conditioners is, deep conditioning products are thick and applied for a long time. Excessive usage of chemicals in the rebonding process makes hair dull and off. Deep conditioning restores your natural shine by improving hair texture, and hair shafts make your hair soft. You should deep condition your hair after every time rebonding takes place and of course, once in a week after a shower. Better if you do that on the hair washing day. There are some deep conditioning products available in amazon and there are some natural ingredients near your hand which are useful for preparing deep conditioners. Make your deep conditioning pack using any of the following elements:

  • Aloe Vera
  • Honey mixed with ingredients like Avocado, Coconut oil, Olive oil
  • Grapeseed oil
  • Mayonnaise and eggs

Follow these instructions:

  • Wash hair with a mild shampoo and skip conditioning
  • Properly dry your hair with a blow dryer containing tourmaline materials
  • Apply your prepared deep conditioning pack from the roots to the ends
  • Wait for 20-30 minutes
  • Again, rinse off the hair with a mild shampoo and use regular conditioner

Blow drying is clearly essential as your rebonded hair needs to be kept dry all the time. We recommend you not to do anything which makes your hair sweaty and wet. Wet hair is an obstacle to your goal, and it will ruin your hair and money. Especially when you come out from the bathroom after showers and after deep conditioning, you should dry your hair with a quality blow dryer having tourmaline technology in it. But for rebonded hair, hair drying must be in cool settings. The Rebonding procedure is done involving massive heat. Because of that, hair can be easily damaged if the hair is dried in hot settings. There are some other factors on the contrary.

  • In case of thick or kinky hair previously, use in maximum heat and lowest speed settings
  • In case of curly and wavy hair prior, use in medium heat and suitable speed settings
  • In case of thin hair previously, use in cool and highest speed settings

5. Steam Hair Fortnightly

Every 15 days, you need to steam your rebonded hair once. Hair becomes dry and brittle, loses its glow due to less washing and much drying. Steaming your hair makes your scalp healthy, opens hair follicles for better absorption of moisture. In the case of rebonding, hair experts suggest not to use a steaming machine at saloons; instead, they say to do it in any simple way.

  • Take a towel and wet it in warm water or
  • Wet a towel in cold water and keep it in the microwave
  • Apply 1-2 drops of hair serum
  • Wrap the towel around the head when the towel is dry with moist heat
  • Wait for 30 minutes and unwrap it, this way hair will be deep conditioned also
  • Blow-dry hair or air-dry

6. Trim Hair at Regular Intervals

Trimming Hair

Trimming is a part of hair care, especially must for rebonded hair. It is essential to remove the split-ends of the strands from time to time after getting rebonded. Through regular trimming, hair strands get the opportunity to grow out faster in a healthy way. Go to your preferred saloons for trimming at regular intervals; it can be once every 6-8 weeks. If you somehow cannot manage time to go to salons, buy a trimmer and do it on your own, you can do such even with a scissor.

In case you trim at home:

  • Bring your entire hair at the front and detangle with a wide-tooth comb
  • Make strands, hold them with hand and trim
  • Make sure you cut the spilled-ends straight

7. Hair Coating With Hair Serums

Hair coating means setting out a layer on the hair. The layer works as a safeguard from harmful elements out there. When you go outside, the dust, pollutants in the air can affect your hair and scalp. You need to be aware of this fact and use hair serums after you have rebonded your hair. There are several types of serums available according to the hair types. Thin hair requires thickening serum when fine and thick hair need a lightweight serum. The serums which protect from damages due to heat are applicable for rebonded hair. Purchase a suitable serum for you and use it every time you wash your hair. You may use it regularly also.

  • Drop the right amount of serum on your palm and rub it between palms
  • Evenly apply it on your back hair and midsections
  • Use more if necessary

8. Sleep in Straight Hair

Sleeping With Straight Hair

Every time you go to bed for sleeping, keep your hair straight. It seems a little bit difficult to keep hair straight when you are lying. But we are making it easy for you.

Resulting from that, your hair will retain its new shape and will not get any tangles.
