Rebonding vs Straightening

Straightening uses tongs to straighten your hair and thus uses heat to straighten the hair. Rebonding, on the other hand, uses chemicals to break the natural structure of the chemical bonds that your hair is made of using cream relaxant, post which the hair is straightened and then the hair bonds are restructured by using neutraliser which actually rebonds the hair structure giving the desired shape to the hair. Using this hair rebonding method for straightening requires regular touch-ups in 3 or 6 months.
