Different between Rebonding and Keratin Treatment

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh!
