How to Rebond Hair the Cheapest Way

Ahglow

Finally my long wait is over! I just had my hair rebonded and guess what? I did not really spend so much to have my hair done (rebonded). I always had my hair straight but then I got bored with it and decided to have it curled. You know girls, always worried of how we look..I actually liked the curl effects on me, it gave me a different look…Until again I got bored of it and also I began to worry since I noticed frequent hair falls and my hair became hard to manage..I am almost afraid of combing it because of the hair fall whenever I do that and the breakage is just terrible! So then I decided to restore my old hair and old me but I was worried of the expenses because my hair is very long (waste length). I’ll be spending a fortune if I’ll have this done in the parlor. So me and my friends decided to do it ourselves!! (geezzz! none of us ever did this before promise!) surprisingly I did not worry a bit! Our philisophy was “As long as we know how to read and follow the instruction, we will not go wrong!” So off we went to a beauty care store and asked the sales lady which hair rebonding treatment is best to use, she gave us a lot of tips and told us, there’s not much of difference between manufacturers. It all depends on how the chemical is applied and how the rebond is done. Okay, so we learned a lot from her. For my hair I decided to have AhGlow since according to the saleslady it is what my favorite parlor uses and it’s also a bit cheaper compared to Wella. For these 5 I spent 1,100 PHP and mind you, I did not consume all of it so I can still use it next time, my mom wanted to use it anyway :) . When I went back to the office, we were happy to know that a lot noticed and gave me great comments and even asked who did it and how much did I spend for it!

I’ll show you how to do it and the result of my hair after the jump..

Ahglow

Here’s what we did

Materials:

-Ahglow rebonding system
-gloves
-glad wrap
-hair blower
-ceramic iron

Procedure: (I’m making this the easiest way possible to understand)
1. (Unwashed hair) Using the strengthening cream, apply it into hair. Make sure you cover all the hair. Do it portion by portion.
2. Comb Hair (im not sure but as the application increased, we were no longer able to comb my hair as it became hard to do so), we continued to step 3 anyway
3. Using a glad wrap cellophane – wrap your hair.
4. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes. In my case since my hair was from curling treatment (8 months ago by the way so it’s safe to rebond), we had it for 45 minutes.
5. Wash hair and do not shampoo.
6. Blow dry hair and when damp, spray on the Ahglow keratin Hair Protek and continue to blow dry hair
7. Iron the hair using your Ceramic Iron (should be paper thin each iron). Note that this part will take so much time since you have to iron hair carefully. Do not leave the iron into hair longer than 3 seconds.
8. Apply Neutralizer Cream, the same manner that you did with the Strengthening cream. Leave for 15-20 minutes again.
9. Rinse hair and this time use the Ahglow Keratin Conditioner (I think using other conditioner will do).
10. Blow dry again your hair and when damp, spray on the Ahglow keratin Hair Protek and continue to blow dry hair
11. Iron hair again using the Ceramic Iron. Apply small amount of Ahglow Hairkote, enough to make it shiny.

There you go!! That easy, no need to go to the parlor. This is even cheaper with the same result or even better than going to the salon! By the way it took us 6 to 7 hours to finish my hair. See results below.

    Hi, i have red your review regarding on how to do it yourself rebond, i was amazed by seeing the before and after pictures.. My friend bought me that product and i was thinking if its not enough for my hair. My hair is very kinky, since i don’t go to parlors (just only haircut), and the length is just a little bit shorter than yours. I am hoping that you if you can give me advice after rebonding on how to apply hair color, i will be glad to reply you back.. I just want to ask if which one is first, hair color or after rebonding then i apply it.. Hoping your reply soon! Thanks :)

    Hi Joy! thank you for dropping by! Anyway, 1 box of Ahglow should be enough for your hair, if your friend bought you the smaller one, it’s just enough. I suggest you follow the instructions strictly and also when you do the ironing make sure you don’t stop at the middle of the hair (do it from roots to tip without stopping at any point of the hair, because it will cause brittleness).

    As to the coloring of the hair, I remember being told doing the hair coloring a month after rebonding But to be sure, you may ask your beautician/expert about it (casual talk lang when you have your haircut).

    Where did you buy ahglow? Which is better ahglow or hortaleza? Tnx

  6. pinksoda says:

    Hi Iceps..I would say Ahglow’s result is better compared to hortaleza. Just make sure that you apply it correctly and you take note of the time it stays on your hair.

  7. pinksoda says:

    Oh by the way, I bought Ahglow from HBC. You can also check your local beauty shop store.

    Rebonding is a time consuming it’s a long process that has to be done correctly to prevent hair from falling out. It takes a long time to be done but it’s good after the rebond. it’s nice though. Mine i had a rebond when i had our vacation last yr.
