How to care for bleached hair

Bleaching is a great way to get a new look for your hair and to lighten it overall. That being said, it can be very damaging and can cause plenty of issues in the overall quality and health of your bleached hair care.

Bleached Hair

Take your Time

It is important that you do not try to go from dark hair to light hair in one sitting. Generally, it takes a few days and a few different settings to get your hair fully bleached. You want to make sure you are having it professionally done and that you are taking the time to get your hair lightened and conditioned as well.

Have it done Professionally

The best way to go from any color to blonde is to take the time to let your stylist do their magic. They are going to have better chemicals for bleaching, they are going to have better tools, they are also going to have better skills and are going to be able to get your hair to the lightness that you want so that it is not only done well, but so that the hair is also healthy and not going to be overly damaged in the process.

Go Easy on the Washing

Your hair does not need to be washed every day. Washing your hair every day is going to dry it out even further. When your hair is bleached, it is going to be even drier. You want to make sure that you take the time to only wash your hair when it is very dirty and truly does need to be washed.

Conditioner is your Friend

You want to make sure you are conditioning your hair often. If you are washing your hair, you should certainly be conditioning it as well. You want to make sure that you can wash your hair and condition it at the same time. You also should be adding protein-rich treatments that can help hair stay strong and can help to smooth the hair cuticle.

Careful with the Styling

You also want to make sure that you are careful in how you are styling your hair. If you can let it air dry, do; if you are using a blow dryer or styling tools you want to make sure you are using a heat protectant and other styling products that are going to help keep your hair conditioned and safe from heat and other styling tools.

Use a Purple Shampoo

You want to use a purple shampoo for washes to help keep your bleached hair from yellowing. You can find some great options online and in hair salons that will help keep your bleached hair icy and cool toned rather than yellowed and too warm in tone. You can also find purple conditioners and other toning products to keep your color true.

Protect your Hair

Bleached hair is more susceptible to environmental issues as well. You want to make sure you are using a UV protectant spray or cream to keep your hair safe. You also want to use a protectant when you are swimming or will be in chlorinated water and when you are going to be exposing your hair to any sort of chemical, using a swim cap or conditioner can help protect your hair when swimming.

Regular Trims

With bleached hair, you also want to make sure you are caring for your hair and having it trimmed more often. Bleached hair tends to split and fray more than hair that is not color treated and taking the time to have your hair trimmed a bit more often is going to help keep your hair in better shape and make it softer, smoother, and free of flyaway strands. If your hair is overly damaged, you need to have it cut professionally so that you can keep your hair looking and feeling great.

Bleached hair is great, with the right care your hair can look and feel great, even if it is bleached and processed. A great hair cut, hairstyle or hair color is going to make a huge difference in the way that your hair feels and is also going to give you more confidence and make you feel better overall.
