I've tried rebonding. I've got frizzy wavy hair and the results were perfect except maybe too perfect as my hair became as straight as a pencil. It was too flat with no volume. As my natural hair grew the difference was quite noticeable. I had really long hair, now its shoulder lenght as I'm trying to get rid of the rebonded hair (its permanent!).

Oh, theres also 2 types of rebonding, soft and hard. I did hard and thats the one that makes your hair pencil straight. I think soft gets rid of the frizziness but I havent tried that so cant confirm its effects. At the time when I asked for rebonding they didnt even tell me there was 2 types :-(

I know when we ladies get bored we end up wanting to do something with our hair hehe

hair rebonding recommendation?

Blue Sapphire, can I find out the name and stylist of your hairdresser please? I have just relocated to Singapore and would like recommendations from personal experience of a good place to do hair rebonding. Would you highly recommend this place to me? Many thanks.

Here is the link to the salon:

I would recommend them for rebonding but do go there for a consultation first. Note that there is also soft rebonding. Some salons dont offer hard rebonding anymore.

I would also recommend Toni & Guy. They give better consultation and listen to you. But their charges are extremely expensive.

Blue Sapphire, thanks for the prompt reply!

With J's salon, is there a particular stylist you would recommend? I like their website - looks v professional.

Similarly with Toni and Guy, I checked out their website and they have branches in Heeren and East Coast Rd. Is there a particular branch I should go to? The one along East Coast Rd is close to where I live but would this be the smaller (translate = fewer good stylists?) one?

At J's salon I dont remember names but I do recommend you go for consultation first with one with the head stylist. Thats one thing I've learnt here, it may cost more but better to let the head stylist/director do your hair than some trainee.

Toni & Guy, I went to the one at Heeren. One of the directors did my hair.

You could always try a few places for a simple wash and blow to test their service & expertise. But then it all depends on your type of hair. Alot of salons are use to handling straight hair.

I have curly hair so I'm still looking around for places that can understand my hair. Toni & Guy is ok but they really charge too much.
