Answer
Rekha,
 First, my apology for the delayed response. Hair is usually much healthier during pregnancy because of the prenatal vitamins and special care you are taking during that time. Often after child birth a certain amount of hair loss is normal and this levels off to the normal amount that anyone would lose each day.
 Rebonding is a thermal straightening procedure that will permanently straighten and smooth the hair and will last until it grows out. Since the hair grows about 3/8 to 1/2 inch a month, in 6 months you will have about 3 inches of new growth to contend with, which is still easier than having to smooth the entire hair length each day. Typically for wavy hair it should last about 9 months or more before needing to retouch the new growth. Curly hair will need retouching about 6-8 months.
 Smoothing treatments are gentler, but now quite as effective or long lasting. Done properly by a professional, either should be fine and not damage your hair. You will have to maintain the hair properly however, with conditioning on a regular basis to avoid dryness, as it will be considered chemically treated.
Best of luck to you.
