How To Maintain Rebonded Hair… The Affordable Way.

After 2 weeks, I can say I’m sufficiently happy with how my L’Oreal Extenso Rebonding in Tony and Jackey turned out.

The experience in the salon wasn’t exactly desirable but I give the results with my hair a thumbs up.

I actually got worried after the first few washings because my hair started to dry. It looked dry, felt dry and burnt. And when I run my fingers through my hair, my hair felt scratchy.

But after another week of washing, my hair is now silky, smooth and super straight. I guess I needed more time to wash out the chemicals.

When you have your hair rebonded, hairstylists will usually recommend hair products (usually conditioners) that you have to use every day so your hair won’t dry. They will also recommend that you take weekly hair treatments.

Unfortunately, these hair products are usually expensive (Tony and Jacky was offering me a hair therapy conditioner worth P2,800! No thanks!) and weekly hair treatments are equally painful on the pockets as well.

But you’re in luck because I’m going to share with you my little thrift secret for maintaining rebonded hair.

If you can’t afford to buy those special, expensive hair products for rebonded hair, or get weekly treatments, you can use any normal hot oil treatment that you can buy from your nearest department store.

Ta-da! Golden Fabulouz Cocomilk Hot Oil Cream Conditioner. You won’t go wrong with the name, haha! FABULOUZ!

I use this as my daily conditioner and I leave it on for around 10-15 minutes while in the shower, then rinse thoroughly after. You can buy it from Watsons for around P200. It’s usually buy one, take one! :) One tub can last you a month or two.

I like this specific hot oil treatment because it has the ingredient “Hydrolized Keratin Oil”.

Keratin is very important to our hair. It is actually a major protein component in hair, skin and teeth. When the layer of keratin in our hair breaks down, that’s when our hair becomes dry and damaged. The thicker the layer of keratin, the healthier the hair.

So if you’re going to look for a hot oil treatment, it would be best if you get the one with keratin additives and ingredient.

And after drying my hair, I use hair oil to make it shinier.

Bought also from Watsons for P170, buy one take one.

Use a pea sized amount on your palm. Rub your palms together, and run your hands through your hair to spread the oil. Don’t use too much or it’ll make your hair look oily and greasy! Best to concentrate on the middle part of your hair and on the tips. Avoid the spreading it on the roots.

I also try to wash my hair with a clarifying shampoo once a week to lessen product build up and prevent dull looking, weighed down hair.

And that’s how I maintain my rebonded hair, the frugal “cheapskate” way, all for P400 bucks! :)

    hieee… i got my hair rebonded permanently but i got soo many of curves after the first wash :( m soo much worried now … i use lorial serum please help :( </3

    • Maybe you washed your hair right away. You must not wash your hair after three days, because the medicine applied needs to be well absorbed by your hair… Also, it’s best when you go back to your salon and tell them about what happened to your hair. Ask them how to take care of it, too. :)

  5. hi ate , can I ask if pwede bang mag ponytail after 1 week ? or 2 weeks ? kasi may C.A.T formation kami araw-araw at dapat naka ponytail ang buhok eh :( PLEASE REPLY PO !

    • Lia Espina Lopez says:

      Hi Shenny, I don’t recommend putting your hair up in a ponytail 1-2 weeks after rebond. Normally, I only put up mine in a ponytail after a few months na, 3 months minimum :)

  6. lilmiss says:

    • Lia Espina Lopez says:

      Hi Lhen, you should try going back to your salon and ask if they could retouch your rebond, or maybe if they can provide treatment :)

  28. Hi Miss Lia, I am very much interested with your blog about maintaining the rebonded hair since my hair is rebonded so maybe this is the time that I should follow these steps since I just bought a coconut hotoil hair treatment same as yours yesterday. Hope it works for my hair too! Thanks for this steps! ☺

  29. Hello po. Tanong ko lang po kung pwede paring magparebond kahit na medyo manipis na po ang buhok ko? Please reply po. Kailangan lang po talaga..

    • Lia Espina Lopez says:

      Hi Karen, I used it every day and never naman nasira hair ko. In fact, it helped make my hair better. Try it for yourself! :)

    • based on my own exp.
      i used it everyday,:) hindi naman nasira ang hair ko. actually, it helps my rebonded hair last almost 2 years with permanent color pa.

  31. Hello po Miss Lia :) Tanong ko lng po kung totoo na pwedeng mag-lagas ang rebonded hair after manganak? Thanks po..

    • Lia Espina Lopez says:

      Hi Elizabeth, regardless whether nag pa rebond ka or not, you will really experience hair-loss after pregnancy since your body underwent some stress :) So it’s normal naman.

  32. Hello po :)) I’m turning 14 but I’ve already rebonded my hair for 3 times already, and now mag fo-4th time na, ask ko lang po if I can do bangs or fringes with rebonded hair?

    • Lia Espina Lopez says:

      Hi Mheryll, I don’t see any reason why you can’t have bangs or fringes with your rebond :)

      • I mean will it not be blunt and straight boring, lying flat on the forehead when I did do a side bangs? Can I do wispy side bangs?

  33. But I did do a Brazillian last October, it made my hair look livelier and it gave keratin. After two months mom decided to put oil because of my dandruffs. :/

    And now after having Brazillian, It really looks natural and it’s shinier.

  34. i just wanna ask if advisable po ba gumamit ex. vitress after rebond??…tska advised po kc sakin magpa hair treatment po para mas lalo gumanda ung hair pangit daw po kac na rebonded lang ang hair tas walang treatment. Ilang months po ba ang kylangan bago mag pa treatment?? salamat po :)

  35. i used that too…:)))
    fan ako ng product na yan. ,
    my rebonded hair last almost 2 years..:) with a permanent color. ihihihihi

  36. Pauleen says:

    Hi po Ate Lia! :D May alam po ba kayong way para mamaintain ko po ang rebonded hair ko? I mean yung hindi po nakukulot? Kasi po, first time ko po magparebond and 1 year na po siya ngayon, ang kaso, nakukulot na po sa may upper part ng hair ko while straight po yung sa lower part. May balak po kasi akong magparebond ulit and gusto ko po sanang malaman kung may mga ways po para maimaintain ko po yung pagkakastraight niya.. Btw po, 12 palang po ako and turning 13 na po.

  42. First time hair rebonded and i do not know how to take good care of it, my hair is now freezy, dry and burned, I take a shower everyday and use keratin everyday.. is it okay if i take a shower and keratin everyday?

    • Lia Espina Lopez says:

      Hi Laiza, there shouldn’t be any problem if you take a shower and have keratin treatment every day :)

  43. Hi, Ms. Lia!

    Natural po bang kulot kayo bago po kayo nagparebond? And after po ba ng rebond ninyo may mga naputol din na hair ninyo? ‘Yung tipong mararamdaman mo ung putol ng hair near the scalp? Ginagamit ninyo pa rin po ba itong Cocomilk hot oil cream na ito hanggang ngayon?

    Thank you po. 😊

    • Lia Espina Lopez says:

      Hi Bles, my hair is naturally straight. Kaya lang ako nag papa rebond is when my hair is short and it’s at its awkward length with fly aways :) But yes, I still use this product to deep condition my hair atleast twice a week since I color my hair regularly :)

      • Hello, Ms. Lia!

        Bumili po ako nito kanina, kaso po magkahiwalay na yung cocomilk at keratin.. Since buy one take one naman po, bumili ako tig-isa. Every other day din po akong nagwawash ng hair ko, since di rin po ako madalas lumabas. Can I use it po everytime I wash my hair, like every other day? Any tips pa po para mas mapaganda ang hair? Hehe.

        Maraming Salamat po, Ms. Lia! 😘

  44. hi po. Mag 3mons na po ung baby ko at breastfeed po yong baby ko….pwedi po ba aku magparebond?

    Tnx..sana masagot niyo po..pangit po kasi ung hair ko..:-)

  45. Hi Lia,

    i just bought the Golden Fabulouz hot oil treatment from Waton’s since i just had my hair rebonded about a month ago. i noticed in the ingredients, there wasnt any mention of Keratin. instead, it has Coconut milk extract.

    will you still recommend the product? what do you think?

    • Lia Espina Lopez says:

      Hi Toni! I noticed that as well on the new stock I bought for myself. It’s still a good product, and I would still recommend it for deep conditioning :)

  46. hey ! i rebonded my hair a week ago. can u suggest anything for dandruff coz my scalp has become itchy.

  47. Hi po :)

    Ask ko lang po if pwede na magshampoo right 3days after magparebond?
    Ginawa ko po kasi yun. And sabi ng friend ko dapat daw hindi muna..
    Ngayon po, wala pang 4weeks may curls na sya uli.
    Nahihiya naman na po akong bumalik sa salon..
    Ano pong maadvise nyong pwede kong gawin?

    At ok lang po kayang gumamit na ng Natural Hair Remedies in less than a month after ng rebond since may curls na?

    Hope po masagot nyo po lahat ng tanong ko :)
    Kahit opinion lang po :)

    Thank you :)
    God Bless :)
