What are the Best Hair Masks for Rebonded Hair?

Hair rebonding is a popular choice for many women with curly and wavy hair. This process is ideal for creating silky, sleek, straight locks. Rebonding promises effortless, lasting straightness that looks pristine from day to day.

However, rebonding does have consequences. Hair that's been chemically treated this way requires a lot of upkeep and a completely new haircare routine to minimise damage. Using masks regularly on rebonded hair is crucial to maintaining hydration and keeping the hair in good condition.

What is Hair Rebonding, and Why Do I Need to Use a Hair Mask on Rebonded Hair?

Hair rebonding begins with a chemical treatment that breaks down the bonds of the hair, just as a perm does. In the case of a perm, the hair is put on small rollers before the bonds are broken. After a time, a second chemical solution is applied to neutralise the first chemical and set the curls.

If the hair is to be straightened, sections are wrapped around very large rollers to stretch out the hair. This leaves the hair permanently straight for a super-sleek finish.

The chemicals used for rebonding are harsh and leave hair sensitised and vulnerable to breakage. Rebonding chemicals also strip moisture from the hair, leaving it brittle, dehydrated, and unhealthy-looking. Rebonded hair is prone to split ends and requires regular trims, careful handling, and special protection.
