Hairstyling/Hairstyles in rebonded hair

Question
Hello.

Recently, I've gone through rebonding of my hair that is about 4 days ago. But I wanted to ask can I make hairstyles (braids, buns, updos) now or do I need to wait for sometime?
Also, I want to know how can I maintain my hair so that rebonding lasts longer?
Thanks.

Answer
Hi,

Without knowing what brand was used I can only answer in generalities,  but, 4 days should be plenty. You should now be able to style your hair the way you choose. If you're still not sure, I'd call the stylist. You should have been given instructions in how to care for your hair when you had the service done.

You need sulphate free shampoo and conditioner. And deep conditioning with protein every few weeks or so. It also helps to flat iron it with a good hart protectant and serum to help maintain the smooth finish.

Expertise

I can answer questions on all types of hairstyling, cutting, designing, coloring, corrective color, perming techniques,product knowledge, and in general, anything that has anything to do with hair. PLEASE NOTE: I am a professional designer and trainer. I do hair and teach advanced classes to licensed designers. I do not, under any circumstances, recommend doing chemical services including but not limited to relaxers, perms, color, highlights, or any other chemical service at home. I will not tell you how to use professional products nor will I tell you how to do your color at home. What I CAN do is arm you with current and accurate information and help you to be able to better communicate with your stylist/designer. I can also help you with what you need to do at home to maintain, protect, and treat your hair.
