Why Rebonds are the Lazy Girl's Go-To Hack for Great Hair

by Kat Gutierrez

The beauty dilemma of a lazy girl can be as taxing as ever. Whether it’s a new skincare routine or a fresh hairstyle, we’re torn between wanting to look good and not putting in too much time, effort, and maintenance.

I know this because I’m a lazy girl myself. 10-step Korean skincare routine? Get out of here. A full face of makeup every day? I would rather just cheat morning prep with concealer.

In college, I used to dye my hair frequently. The multitude of possible colors amazed me and I adored how having vibrant, bleached locks made me stand out from a sea of university students. I loved it a lot—until I realized how much of a hassle keeping it was. My dark roots grew out within a couple of weeks, my hair was always fried and dry, and my wallet seemed to be magically emptying itself thanks to the many, many products (damn you, purple shampoo) I had to spend on.

So, what exactly is a lazy girl to do if you want a change in your beloved crowning glory? The answer is simple: rebonds.

Say goodbye to frequent salon visits and spending tons of hours and cash trying to keep it in tip-top shape every day. This classic hair process has been around for a while now, but it's still the perfect fix for those who don’t have the luxury of time for constant maintenance. Here's why you need a rebond in your life—and the best places to get it from:

1. It’ll make you say goodbye to your heating irons

Essentially, rebonding is a technique that reworks the bonds in your locks, using heat and chemicals to change the structure of your hair, whether it’s naturally curly, wavy, or straight. People opt to have this process done so they can get rid of extra steps in their morning routine. No more flat irons to tame frizzy or unmanageable hair!

Le Maquillage Salon’s much-coveted Straight Therapy Rebonding promises instant results while restoring manageability, brilliance, and flexibility without the ugliness of hair damage. Unwind in the salon’s luxurious branch located at The Peninsula Manila and get some other treatments and add-ons of your choice.

2. It looks effortlessly great on anyone


Truth be told, you can never go wrong with silky, shiny, and straight hair. It’s a timeless style that's simple and elegant but still manages to make people’s heads turn when you walk by. Whether you’re a person with frizzy hair or someone with locks in need of a little bit more volume, a rebond will always be a fool-proof idea.

If you’re looking for a treatment that won’t leave your tresses as flat as paper, Regine’s Salon’s L'Oréal Oleo Steambond is the rebond to get. Thanks to its new formulation that includes three nourishing oils (rice, cotton seed, and sweet almond), not only will you get long-lasting straight and kink-free hair, you’ll also be blessed with bouncy volume.

Hate the smell the chemicals give off after a rebond? At Regine’s Salon, this best-selling technique is complemented by its low, non-irritating scent, so there’s no need to worry about that.

3. It’s low-maintenance AF

I can't say this enough: the best part about getting your hair rebonded is how low-maintenance it is compared to other hair treatments or makeovers like coloring, perms, and highlights. The effect of a good rebond can last as long as 6 months and doesn’t need frequent parlor visits or multiple products to sustain. You'll never complain that it's too much work!

Jesi Mendez’s Rebond for Permanently Straight Hair uses a straightening cream that’ll be used to prevent damage as it contains wheat proteins as well as some vitamin B5 to protect your hair from heat styling. Long-term results are best sought out at Jesi Mendez Salon.
