On your right you can see the microscopic view of a hair strand that is damaged by excessive IRONING and heavy use of bleach during coloring process
As you can see, the outer layers of the hairs, made by cuticles are sometimes raptured and sometimes disarrayed from the heat or chemicals. Unfortunately, many of us use heating iron to straighten or curl our hair. Sometimes, the inexperienced hair salons put excessive quantity / too strong bleach on hair during coloring process. As a result the hairs are highly damaged which we can not see with our naked eyes. But the after effects like hair breakage, loss of shine, dryness, hair fall is seen after a month or so.

Besides, rebonded hairs do not require frequent combing and ironing, the damage due to heat and friction is reduced. During the treatments, a protective layer is also grown on the hair that stops the UV rays and due to slippery hair dust particles and bacterias can not stick to the hair. As a by product, in most of the hair treatments, anti-bacteria - anti dandruff element is added and hence the dandruff is also removed automatically.
