With time, there are a variety of hair treatments available at salons. While most of us hear about it from friends, most of us are worried about basic information and aftereffects of treatments like keratin, cystine or rebonding. Today we break down what happens in each of these treatments, the differences between these three treatments and also weigh the pros and cons. To ensure that you make the best decision, we suggest you scroll to the bottom and get reading already!
Keratin treatment is basically a semi-permanent hair straightening method. During the treatment, keratin is artificially added to the hair and a flat iron is used after to seal the product in. Unlike straightening and rebonding, this treatment does not flatten your hair completely nor does it change your hair’s natural texture drastically. On the contrary, it keeps the frizz away and makes hair smooth, shiny and manageable. In a nutshell, think of this treatment as a super strong deep conditioning treatment.
Cysteine hair treatment is usually recommended for someone with dry or wavy hair. A lesser-known fact, cysteine is an amino acid present in the hair bonds which is responsible for your hair’s elasticity. You’ll love it because the treatment does not use any harsh, artificial chemicals. It also prevents frizziness and unruliness. The treatment is packed with natural ingredients, proteins and antioxidants, which help improves hair’s texture drastically.

To put it simply, rebonding is a permanent chemical hair straightening treatment. This treatment is popular among women who have voluminous and unmanageable hair. Similar to straightening, chemicals are applied to break and rearrange bonds of your hair.
