What is hair rebonding material? And what is the process of that?
You might have heard the popular saying that says if you want to make changes in your life, start with your hair. It seems to be true. Thinking about changing your hair, you might consider options like hair color, haircut, or hair rebonding. In this post, we answer the question “What is hair rebonding?” and talk about hair rebonding material, and the process of hair rebonding.
What is hair rebonding?
It is a chemical process to change the natural texture of the hair to create a smooth and straight style. The other name for hair rebonding is chemical straightening.
Typically, a licensed cosmetologist at every local hair salon can do the hair rebonding. The process of hair rebonding, done in several steps, breaks the natural bonds existing in the air follicle, and then rebuilds these bonds but in a different shape. The new shape changes the way that your hair looks.

Hair rebonding can cost you from around $250 to more than $1,000. How much hair rebonding will cost depends on the salon you choose to go to, and the ingredients you choose (for example if you choose a nontoxic ingredient, it will cost you more), and the length and well-maintenance of your hair.
What is hair rebonding material?
Hair rebonding material is a powerful chemical used to straighten hair. The process of hair rebonding takes several hours.
Water usually breaks the hydrogen bonds of the keratin molecules in the hair. Then, a chemical (formaldehyde or aldehyde), crosslinks the new hair structure in a pin-straight alignment.
You might see relaxants that claim to be formaldehyde-free, but most relaxant formulas release gases that are chemically similar to formaldehyde. Methylene glycol and methanal are chemicals that release such gases.

After applying the chemicals to hair, it looks straighter than naturally straight hair.
The process of hair rebonding
- In the first step, the stylist washes your hair to remove the dirt and oils. Then lets it air-dry into its natural texture to see what your natural hair texture is.
- The second step in the process of hair rebonding is sectioning your hair like the way a stylist does for hair dye treatment or a blow-dry. Then, the stylist coats every strand of your hair in a cram named a “relaxant.”
- This cream remains on your hair for half an hour or more. The relaxant breaks down the hair cuticle on a cellular level, so, in order for your scalp and hair not to get damaged, this step in the process of hair rebonding should be closely monitored.
- The next step is streaming the hair using a special hair steaming tool. At the end of this step, the hair will be extremely straight, but it is not the last step.
- In the next step of the process of hair rebonding, the hair is again blow-dried to get ready for the next step.
- After air-drying the hair, keratin lotion is applied to them. this lotion helps the new hair bonds to set. then, to stabilize the bonds that are newly formed, the stylist layers a neutralizer on top of the hair. This step of the process of hair rebonding takes about 30 minutes.
- In the last step, the stylist rinses the hair one last time to wash away the keratin and neutralizer. Then, they blow-dry the hair straight to its finished style.
Hair rebonding is not temporary. You will have to repeat the process just when your hair has grown more than an inch at the roots.
