F Salon Hair Treatment & Color + Footspa w/ Pedicure = Well Pampered Tuesday

Yesterday (Tuesday, 3rd of May 2011), i took a leave to accompany my "balikbayan" sister to the Salon. Since we're on a "tipid" mode, we didn't go to expensive salons instead we went to F Salon, Zapote Branch, for our hair makeover and a bit of foot pampering. My sister goes for a Rebond and Foot spa, while i had my Hair Treatment/Color and Foot spa as well. 

F Salon offers salon services, spa and facial. Their price is very affordable yet they don't sacrifice their service quality (based on my experience) . They never run out of promos and cheaper packages to offer.

We arrive at the Salon at about 11:30 am yet they finished rebonding my sister at 6:30 pm. Grueling 7 hours of painful ironing and hair pulling to straighten the hair of my poor sistah. Yes, That's really what every girl needs to go through just to have beautiful straight hair. As for me, i just had my simple hair treatment and color.

What is Rebonding? 

Rebonding is a chemical hair treatment that makes your hair straight, sleek and shiny. It is a permanent and expensive procedure. Prices for the treatment may vary across salons due to products used, service, your hair type and post treatment care. 
Each type of hair has a natural bond.Curly or wavy, are the result of natural bonds that give the hair its physical quality. The cream softener or relaxant used in the rebonding treatment breaks the hair structure. Then a neutraliser bonds the structure again and makes hair straight. In simpler terms the rebonding treatment changes your natural hair structure and restructures it. 
Once your hair is straightened you have to touch up the new growth every three months, six months or a year, depending upon your growth. 
The Process of Rebonding 

The time taken to complete a rebonding treatment depends upon the length, type and thickness of your hair. Hair till mid back can take about 8 hours or more to be rebonded. A man’s hair might need three hours. Here’s the step by step approach to rebonding.  

1. Hair is washed with a mild shampoo. No conditioner is applied. Hair is dried completely with a blow dryer keeping it on the medium level.  

2. Hair is separated into parts. The cream softener or relaxant is applied to every hair shaft, keeping it straight. A thin plastic board is used to keep hair straight.  

3. Cream softener or relaxant is kept on hair for at least half an hour or depending upon the hair type. Keeping it for too long may even harm hair. After that hair is steamed for 10 to 40 minutes, depending upon hair type and condition, and then rinsed.  

4. Hair is blow dried and then keratin lotion is applied.  

5. A flat iron is used to straighten hair further and break any remaining curls. The iron should not exceed 180 degrees. A ceramic iron is better than other metal irons. The salon expert will iron your hair until it is satisfactorily straight and shiny.  

6. Hair is again parted and a neutraliser is applied to set the bonds and stabilise the hair.  

7. The neutraliser is kept for at least 30 minutes.  

8. The neutraliser is rinsed off with cold water. Hair is blow dried and hair serum is applied. A last touch of ironing is given with the straightening iron. Hair appears silky straight and shiny.  

A salon professional will restrict you from washing your hair for minimum three days. It allows the treatment to set. You will be asked not to clip your hair, tie a rubber band or wear any other accessories in your hair for minimum three days. Wearing a shower cap while having a bath is also advisable, to prevent hair from becoming wet. 
Is rebonding harmful for hair? 

Any chemical process affects hair texture and quality. Excessive use of chemicals makes hair dry, weak and can even lead to hairfall. Hair rebonding requires post treatment care otherwise it may turn harmful. If you are suffering from hairfall, you must avoid rebonding or any other chemical hair treatment. Cheap chemicals, inexperienced hair stylists and weak hair can make rebonding a bad experience.  

Hair rebonding can turn into a disaster if you do not take care of your hair. Hair will need extra pampering once it has been rebonded. You cannot ignore your hair just because it looks straight and shiny. Rebonding done from a reputed and trustworthy salon lasts longer and hair quality does not suffer. Discuss your hair condition and the treatment before your scheduled appointment.
