Treatment for Bleached Hair
Going blonde is one of the most popular means of changing up a look. Unfortunately, bleach is a harsh treatment. To remove natural color, bleach breaks apart the proteins in hair. It leaves locks weaker and individuals will experience frizz, dryness and breakage. Anyone who is considering bleaching their hair should be prepared for additional care to keep hair hydrated, healthy and shiny.
Don’t wash bleached hair too frequently. Cleansing less often preserves natural hair oils that protect and nourish locks. For cleansing between washes, a dry shampoo can be used occasionally. Less frequent washing also reduces the time spent on blow drying and styling.
Hot showers are relaxing, but hair doesn’t appreciate the same temperatures. Hot water dries hair and fades color. Use lukewarm water instead.
Use high-quality deep conditioners to aid in maintaining shiny color. Deep conditioners will also help restore strength and repair damaged strands. Hair will be smoother, softer and silkier.
Hot Styling Tools
Avoid hot styling tools whenever possible and that includes blow dryers, straighteners, curling irons and others. If hot styling tools are used, keep them on the lowest setting. At the very least, use a product designed to protect against heat before drying.
A hair mask will work wonders toward keeping hair hydrated and avoiding frizz. Hair masks inject moisture and nutrients essential for bleached hair.
Even with the most attentive care, bleached hair will begin to dull and turn brassy over time. It’s essential to use a color-enhancing shampoo and conditioner. They’re specifically designed to hold brassiness at bay. There are also purple shampoos and conditioners to brighten blonde tones and they’re available for a wide variety of shades.
Never bleach dead ends and keep hair trimmed regularly. When going in for a touch-up of roots, ask the stylist to leave dead ends alone. Bleaching dead ends will make them more damaged, frayed, and are unattractive.
