It’s almost summer! It’s weird when I say it because it is ALWAYS summer in my country.
Anyway, how’s your rebonded/treated hair getting along with the heat these days? Has it turned dull? Has it lost its shine? Have you felt like shampoo and conditioning aren’t enough?
OK. I. sound. like. a. promo. girl. . .
On a serious note, if you have treated hair (e.g. rebonded, permed, colored), shampoo and conditioners are not enough. You have to maintain your treated hair with salon treatment at least every two weeks.
The most hair-friendly treatment would be hot oil treatment. If you have dry, dull, damaged hair, like me, the best treatment for your hair would be Hair Cellophane.
What is Hair Cellophane?
Hair cellophane is the process of applying a “glossing agent” to your damp hair, allowing it to set for 20 to 30 minutes to wrap around your hair follicle and to get absorbed into the shaft.
Basically, what the glossing agent does to your hair is sealing the cuticle layer of your hair, locking in moisture, and thus increasing your hair shine.
That is why regular cellophane treatment is good (and essential for rebonded or color-treated hair) as it revives the color, shine and softness of your hair.
How much is it to have a Hair Cellophane?
The price ranges from Php 400 – Php 2000 depending on the length of your hair and the salon you’re getting the treatment from.
But don’t get dismayed! If you are the practical (and diligent) type, you can have less expensive hair treatment at the comfort of your home.
DIY Hair Cellophane

Steps on how to DIY Hair Cellophane Treatment
1. Shampoo hair and towel dry hair until 75% dry.
2. Apply Color Treatment beginning 3mm from scalp and comb through the hair thoroughly.
3. Keep hair moistened and heated with a steamer or heater for 30 minutes.
4. Allow hair to cool for 5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly until the water runs clear.
5. Squeeze out excess water and apply conditioning.
6. Rinse and leave conditioner in the hair for at least 1 minute.
7. Rinse thoroughly with water, blow dry and style.
Where to buy Shine Moist Henna Wax?
- SM Department Store or Watson’s for Php 214.95
- HORTLEZA outlet for only Php 180.00 (I USUALLY BUY IT FROM HERE BECAUSE HERE IT’S CHEAPEST)
I bought my heating cap (steamer) from Hortaleza in 2008 and I could still use it to this day. It’s durable. But since it 2016 now, I don’t remember the price or maybe they have changed the product as well as its cost. But if you don’t have the heating cap or steamer at home, just cover your damp hair with plastic shower cap to lock in the moisture. In some salons, they use the cling to wrap plastic. You can buy it from the supermarket and use it to your hair. I bet you can also get a desirable result.
