Hair Rebonding Treatment Compared to Hair Relaxing
There are different ways to straighten hair. Hair relaxing is a cheaper and quicker method. People with curls, and perhaps tighter curls use a hair relaxer treatment to make their hair straight. If you purchase a home relaxer treatment, this method is usually mixing an activator with a relaxer cream, or applying the already made relaxer to the hair, generally starting at the roots. Most likely, this hair straightening method does not get hair completely straight, but it softens the hair to create a straightened appearance.
Pros and Cons with Relaxing
Pros for using a hair relaxer is that it is inexpensive and you can do it in the comfort of your own home. The cons for using a hair relaxer is that the hairs are not entirely straight. You may need to use styling methods such as a flat iron or other heating methods to make sure your hair is completely straight if you want that look.

The hair rebonding treatment compared to hair relaxing is slightly different. Rebonding uses somewhat different chemicals as well as heat in its hair process.
