Each type of hair has its own natural bond. Wavy / Curly are the types of natural bonds which gives your hair to have physical quality. The cream relaxant or softener used in the Rebonding treatment breaks the structure of your hair. Then a neutralizer bonds your hair structure again and makes straight. In easy terms the treatment which changes your natural hair structure and restructures your hair is Rebonding treatment. 

Once the hair Rebonding is done or straightened, you have to touch up the new growth of your hair for every three months, six months or a year, depending upon your hair growth.
