Tips On How To Take Care Of Rebounded Hair

Once the rebonding is done it is equally important to take care of it. Below are some tips that you can follow if you just got your hair rebonded.

Do Not Wash Your Hair Soon

This is one important tip to keep in mind if you just got your hair rebonded. Do not wash your hair for the next 72 hours. It almost takes 3 days for your hair to settle down to its new structure and wetting your hair before that could ruin all your effort and money spent on rebonding your hair.

Do Not Tie Your Hair

Tying your hair or tucking it behind your ears after rebonding is a complete no-no. You need to keep your hair open until your hair is used to its new structure. Also, remember to leave your hair open even when you go to sleep every day for the next 3 days.

Condition Your Hair Properly

When you wash your hair after three days, remember to use a mild and sulfate free shampoo. Also, make sure that you use shampoo and conditioner that are specially formulated for chemically treated hair. After washing your hair with shampoo, apply some conditioner and gently massage your hair with your fingertips for a few minutes. Wait for about 15-20 minutes so that your hair absorbs the conditioner well.

Avoid Using Heating Products

Already your hair has undergone a lot of heating process while rebonding. Using heating products on your hair can only damage your hair further. If you think that you need to blow dry your hair make sure that you use it on a cool setting.

Wash Your Hair In Cold Water

If you are someone who uses hot water to wash your hair then it's probably time for you to stop it. Washing your hair in cold water helps in locking the moisture of your hair and prevents damage of the hair. If it is necessary you can use lukewarm water instead of cold water to wash your hair.

Keep Your Scalp Clean And Healthy
