Aid for Bleached Hair

Bleaching your hair most likely will cause some kind of damage, especially if you are bleaching your hair at home and not in salon. Severe damage to the cuticle; specifically designed to protect the cortex (place on our scalp where our natural hair color rests), may result from over bleaching.  This can cause our hair to be lifeless, stiff, and extremely dry.  Worst case the hair breakage can and may occur from the root area.

Here are few steps to take to repair the damage done to your hair by bleach:

  • Limit the number shampoo use on weekly-it provides time to accumulate natural hair oils.
  • Use moisturizing shampoo-this can give your hair the necessary oils to the hair.
  • Use warm water and NOT hot water-damaged hair needs natural hair oils, hot water tends to burn the necessary oils.
  • Rinse hair completely.
  • Apply conditioner especially if it is specifically designed for treating damaged hair.
  • Leaving the conditioner on your hair for at least 20-30 minutes-this provides the necessary oils to react.
  • Final rinse should always be with cool/cold water-it seals newly moisture back into our scalp.
  • Avoid using any kind of hot styling/drying tools-damaged hair does not need heat but cool, air dry your air.
  • Change your diet, if necessary to include oils such as olive and/or vegetable oils.
  • Use combs for brushing your hair not hair brush until the hair is completely repaired, also don’t comb/brush your hair while it is wet, it cause breakage.
  •  Don’t add any more chemicals to damaged hair, it can cause additional damage.
  • Drink tons of water and don’t take too much stress.
  • If the damage does not improve after a month or you can allergy reaction, please contact your professional hair salon. 

Punishing Hair

You have probably dyed your hair one time or other correct? Once you dyed your hair and if you were/are not satisfied, I have to tell you please DO NOT use bleach to wash away the hair color. Using bleach is as good as punishing your hair. I am not kidding.

One of my friend, she used bleach in her hair, which basically destr0oyed the beauty, the color, the loss of shine in her hair. It made her hair dull, stiff, and most of all cracky. If for whatever reason you want to change the color of your hair,use actual hair color, if you must but don’t go to bleach.

Bleach damages hair by stripping it of its important moisturizing oils. Without necessary oils in our hair any of these (or all of these) can happen:

  • Brittle
  • Dry
  • Split ends
  • Breakage

To repair bleach damage, keep posted:)
