2021 UPDATE: HAIR REBOND (using MONEA) plus bleach and hair dye. If you want to do the hair treatment yourself, if you don't have time to go to the salon, if you are feeling adventurous, if you wanna save on hair care expenses, this article is made just for you!


I just finished rebonding my bleached hair last night. Yes. My hair is colored (and bleached heavily) 6 months ago. And this week, I just need a fix for my hair but really don't have the luxury of time to stay at the salon for 10 hours. My awesome salon stylist really takes care of my hair and so the process of all the treatment for my unruly hair takes time. I'll go see her next month for Brazilian Blowout treatment. But for now, I'll share about what I did to my hair and how it turned out. Let me start with a background of my hair:

About my hair


1 - Chemically treated every year since (probably high school) 
2 - The most reent treatment was in June 2020 at the salon 
3 - Had hair rebond, bleach, hair color, Brazilian blowout
4 - Often subjected to heat for styling (mostly curling) - well, if you ask why do I have it straightened only to curl it, the answer is simple I like it not fizzy and relatively less bouncy. I also don't like the waves near the crown. I like them just at the mid part to the tips of my hair.
5 - Only use conditioner for my hair these past months, can't go to the salon for proper keratin treatment

Products I used (AND COST)


(Bought them at SM store; you can also buy them online - I inserted the links where to purchase)

1 - MONEA Hair Rebond System - Php 269 
2 - (2PCS) OMG developer 100 ml - Php 58
3 - (2PCS) Monea bleaching powder - Php 56
4 - Loreal Excellence Hair Color - Dark Blonde - Php 349 (Originally 449 but has Php100 discount)

(I already have)

6 - hair clips (I suggest you buy more and buy plastic ones)
8 - Electric fan (I don't have a blower, if you have it it would be more convenient but I recommend the fan to really see how effective the chemicals reacted on straightening your hair)
9 - dark towels
10 - extra surgical gloves
11 - Pantene Collagen Miracle conditioner. But if you have extra budget, you can use Monea Keratin Purple Blondie Conditioner or MONEA POWER DOSE
12 - plastic comb

THINGS I SHOULD HAVE REMEMBERED BUYING (and you should too for more efficient and effective application)

  • 4 hair clip grips (same as what I used a couple of years ago. I got them I think from WatSons
  • Shower caps
  • Keratin Treatment  OR  aftercare treatment like MONEA POWER DOSE

THE PROCESS


I. REBONDING

The rebonding process is easy. The products to use come with easy-to-follow instructions. Anyhow I'll break them down for you:

STEP 1 - APPLYING MONEA HAIR CREAM 1

  1. Rinse hair to remove dirt and excess oil, dry it off completely
  2. Divide hair into 4 sections using hair clip grip (or anything you can use)
  3. Apply Monea Hair Rebond Cream #1 on paper thin strands starting from the nape to the crown (just like when you are dyeing your hair) ***Avoid applying the cream to the eyes or the scalp***
  4. Clamp the hair and cover with shower cap (or any plastic)
  5. Leave for 20 minutes

STEP 2 - APPLYING MONEA HAIR CREAM 2 (NEUTRALIZER)

  1. Rinse off Monea Hair Rebond Cream # 1 ***DO NOT SHAMPOO, JUST USE WATER***
  2. Dry hair COMPLETELY
  3. Divide into 4 sections
  4. Now this is the tedious part—IRON HAIR meticulously: Take paper thin strands and iron until straight, lustrous and bouncy (this would take hours I know) ***try to avoid sweating***
  5. After ironing up to the crown, let your hair cool for 5 minutes
  6. After that apply Monea Hair Rebond Cream #2 from crown to nape covering all the hair strands (again, do it like you’re colouring your hair)
  7. Then, cover hair with plastic, use heating cap for 20 minutes if you have it at home or just cover with hot towel.
  8. Rinse off ***DO NOT SHAMPOO, JUST USE WATER***
II. BLEACHING

For my hair bleach, I used OMG developer and MONEA highlights pro. I mixed this together and applied to my damp hair. IMPORTANT NOTE: THERE IS NO SKIN TEST FOR SENSITIVITY TO BLEACH THAT YOU CAN PERFORM.  Each of us has a different sensitivity or tolerance to bleaching. When you apply the bleach to the hair, it is common to feel burning sensation, but if you feel a severe discomfort during the process, you have to stop and rinse your scalp right away. 




For the bleaching, I followed the instruction written on the bottle and on the plastic packet. I applied the bleach first to my hair regrowth and after a few minutes (based on what is written in the instruction on the sachet) I combed it down to the rest of my hair strands. After my hair is bleached, I rinsed it with water.

III. HAIR COLOR

For my hair color, I used L'OREAL. I just followed the instructions written on the manual that comes with the box.



 
IV. CONDITIONING
  1. Rinse off with water ***DO NOT SHAMPOO***
  2. Use hair conditioner: leave for 5 minutes
  3. Rinse off ***do not shampoo***
  4. Dry hair
  5. Iron again and let set for 3 days ***DO NOT WASH HAIR  FOR AT LEAST 3 DAYS***

My hair looks really soft and straight and shiny because the chemicals were newly applied. I expect a little change however after I wash this on Tuesday... Nevertheless, I know that my hair will be more manageable, softer, shinier, and straighter THAN before the rebond

RESULT AFTER RINSING

As you can see, it is not THAT bouncy and shiny - because i wasn't able to iron it well :) But i am happy with the result because it is so much better than unrebonded hair.


For those who want to try, I'm leaving you guys with some pointers:


I don't recommend rebonding your own hair at home if: 

- you don't know your hair strands that well
- you have sensitive skin
- you have chemical allergies
- you are pregnant!!!!
- you don't have a good ceramic hair iron
- you expect your hair to be like that of Sarah G in the commercials

HAIR REBOND PLUS CELLOPHANE


(This post is from  2016)

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

My newly grown hair began to give the least appealing waves on the crown [and perhaps me worrying about it too much had spawned 3 huge pimples on my face] so I decided to rebond my hair last night, ALONE, inside my room... I worked on my magic from 8 PM and finished 3 AM today.... Whew! The long hours of rebonding was tedious but I'd say it's worth it!

Here are the products I used (bought them all from WATSONS in SM CITY TAYTAY):

I also used:
  • Ceramic Hair Iron with up to 220 degrees C adjustable heat
  • 4 Hair Clip Grip
  • 1 Tint brush 
  • 1 Plastic comb 
  • Pair of gloves
  • 3 shower caps

Yeah baby!
The rebonding process is easy. The products to use come with easy-to-follow instructions. Anyhow I'll break them down for you:


Ah! Before that here’s my hair condition prior to the rebonding:
  • Rebonded 6 months ago  
  • Dyed a month ago
  • Trimmed to layers a week ago
  • Wavy on the crown
  • Unmanageable and super dry (due to frequent hair ironing) 


Steps on how to DIY hair rebonding at home:


STEP 1 - APPLYING MONEA HAIR CREAM 1

  1. Rinse hair to remove dirt and excess oil, dry it off completely
  2. Divide hair into 4 sections using hair clip grip (or anything you can use)
  3. Apply Monea Hair Rebond Cream #1 on paper thin strands starting from the nape to the crown (just like when you are dyeing your hair) ***Avoid applying the cream to the eyes or the scalp***
  4. Clamp the hair and cover with shower cap (or any plastic)
  5. Leave for 20 minutes

STEP 2 - APPLYING MONEA HAIR CREAM 2 (NEUTRALIZER)

  1. Rinse off Monea Hair Rebond Cream # 1 ***DO NOT SHAMPOO, JUST USE WATER***
  2. Dry hair COMPLETELY
  3. Divide into 4 sections
  4. Now this is the tedious part—IRON HAIR meticulously: Take paper thin strands and iron until straight, lustrous and bouncy (this would take hours I know) ***try to avoid sweating***
  5. After ironing up to the crown, let your hair cool for 5 minutes
  6. After that apply Monea Hair Rebond Cream #2 from crown to nape covering all the hair strands (again, do it like you’re colouring your hair)
  7. Then, cover hair with plastic, use heating cap for 20 minutes if you have it at home or just cover with hot towel.
  8. Rinse off ***DO NOT SHAMPOO, JUST USE WATER***

HERE'S A VIDEO OF ME IRONING BEFORE APPLYING MONEA CREAM 2
(actually the hair strands to be ironed should be paper thin)


STEP 3 - APPLYING CASA QUICK & EASY CELLOPHANE

  1. Dry off excess water
  2. Apply CASA Quick & Easy Cellophane cream from crown to nape ***Make sure to even out the color application***
  3. Leave for 45 minutes
  4. Rinse off with water ***DO NOT SHAMPOO***
  5. Use hair conditioner: leave for 5 minutes
  6. Rinse off ***do not shampoo***
  7. Dry hair
  8. Iron again and let set for 3 days ***DO NOT WASH HAIR  FOR AT LEAST 3 DAYS***

...waiting for breakfast.. I must say I love my new hair color :)
My hair looks really soft and straight and shiny because the chemicals were newly applied. I expect a little change however after I wash this on Tuesday... Nevertheless, I know that my hair will be more manageable, softer, shinier, and straighter THAN before the rebond

For those who want to try, I'm leaving you guys with some pointers:

I don't recommend rebonding your own hair at home if: 

- you don't have hair dyeing experience
- you don't know your hair strands that well
- you have sensitive skin
- you have chemical allergies

- you expect your hair to be like that of Sarah G in the commercials 



So that's it! Thanks for reading! I'll update you guys on TUESDAY! :) SEE MY UPDATE HERE!!!!
