Hair bleaching treatments are very invasive. If you want to enjoy beautiful blonde hair, you need to be aware of this. It is sometimes difficult for hairdressers to achieve a light hair color on the first try. Blonde hair requires several visits to a specialist and special care.
How does bleach work?
Bleach opens the hair cuticles and removes the pigment from the hair. The product penetrates the hair, breaking its protective layer. This makes the hair one or two shades lighter at most. The effect depends on the product type and hair color. Dark strands first turn red, then orange and only after the third or fourth application will they become light. The product must be chosen according to your initial hair color. If you have a lighter hairstyle, we recommend products with a weaker effect, whose purpose is not only to lighten the hair, but also its subsequent regeneration. Note that the treatment does not have a positive effect on the condition and structure of the hair. Strands may be damaged, dry, and therefore lack luster, so it is important to take care of them
How to care for your hair after bleaching?
The best way to colour your hair blonde is to care for it. How to do it? We have discussed everything in the following paragraphs
Use shampoos and conditioners containing blue-violet pigments
Bleached hair often turns yellow and this destroys your dreams of a perfect cool blonde shade. There are ways to remedy this situation. We recommend shampoos and conditioners that contain blue-violet pigments. They remove the coppery and yellowish tinge, which appears on blonde hair over time. Depending on the severity of the problem, you can choose stronger or milder products or alternate between the two. A good choice is to apply a hair mask. This type of hair mask should be kept on your head for about 5-10 minutes so that it penetrates the hair cuticles more deeply and eliminates the copper-yellow tones
Regular Oil Treatment
If you want to get your hair back in good shape, you should oil it regularly. We know that many women don’t like to do this but there is nothing more effective than putting oily products on your head. You should use one oil or a mixture of several oils. It is best to choose unrefined and cold-pressed ones, as they are rich in vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids. How long you leave the product on your hair is very important. For damaged and dull hair this is at least 30 minutes. This time can be extended even to several hours, then the strands will be deeply regenerated. After the treatment, wash your hair and then apply a moisturizing conditioner
Use Highly Moisturizing Conditioners
If you want to take proper care of your bleached hair, you must start using moisturizing oils, mists or conditioners. What’s more, products that contain silicones are beneficial in this case. These are not recommended for healthy hair because they inhibit the absorption of moisturizing and nourishing ingredients. Such a compress, on the other hand, works well on damaged hair. It effectively protects hair from wind, sun and frost. It also protects hair from breakage, giving it shine and a healthier appearance
If you want your hair to look stunning, be sure to cut it after a bleaching treatment. Under no circumstances can you do it before. During bleaching, the ends get dry, dull and consequently hard to comb. Sometimes, cutting your blonde hair is the only way to save it.
