My sister changes her hairstyle quite frequently. One month, she is rebonding her hair. The next, she is perming it. I told her that this damages her hair, but she doesn't listen. Actually, what is rebonding?

Hair is made out of a protein called keratin.
Keratin is also present in your nails.
In hair, the keratin molecules are in straight bundles.
