I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.
I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 for my hair length. But when I was there, the hairdresser recommended me to do the mucota omega hair rebonding with hair cut and treatment at $288 for all hair length. She said it will look more natural and the effect will last longer. Okay, so I take that. I got a 10% discount by quoting beauty undercover when I call to make appointment, not sure when will this promotion end though.
Then another hairstylist came and helped to apply the straightening cream on my hair.. I can smell the ammonia smell of the straightening cream though I read from other reviews that there's no ammonia smell. I told the hairstylist that I do not want the flat flat rebonding effect so he said he will not apply the straightening cream near the roots so that my hair will not be so flat.
After about 20 mins, Yahnie came to wash my hair, blow dry and then use a hair straightener to straighten my hair. At this moment, I felt that my hair was a bit dry after washing off the straightening cream because when the hairstylist blow dry my hair, I can feel that my hair was dry and was being tugged. I was praying that the mucota hair treatment which they will apply next will save the dry hair.
Next, the mucota treatment cream was applied on my hair, waited for around 20mins, then rinse. While my hair was still wet, the hairstylist applied a treatment serum on my hair, waited for 5 to 10 mins and rinse again, then applied some mucota serum on my wet hair, then blow dry and cut.
The hairstylists at Focus are quite friendly and nice to chat with. Yahnie even taught me how to use a hair straightener to produce C-curls at my hair ends. It's quite a relaxing and friendly atmosphere at Focus.
After the mucota treatment, my hair felt soft and bouncy. The Mucota treatment is really good! It's the second time I did Mucota treatment and it did not disappoint me. I walked out feeling happy with my soft and bouncy hair. But I felt my fringe a bit too flat, I was hoping that my fringe will have more volume.
The photo was taken 2 weeks after I did the mucota rebonding. I find my fringe a bit too flat even though the hairstylist did not apply the straightening cream near the roots. Now I have to use a hair clip to clip my fringe up to give it some volume after I wash my hair. As for the ends of my hair, it's less frizzy and it's not deadly straight.
When I first washed my hair after the rebonding, there's still ammonia smell. The ammonia smell faded only after about 3 washes. In my opinion, I think I will return for the Mucota treatment but don't think I will do rebonding due to several reasons. My hair is originally the soft type with slight natural curls so I just need to make my hair less frizzy. Personally I find the treatment makes my hair less frizzy as well, treatment does not need to apply the straightening cream and hence, no ammonia smell and won't cause damage to my hair, treatment won't make my hair look flat, and it is less pricey than rebonding!
