Good tips to help you take care of your bleach hair properly and effectively
Use the right shampoo
When dyeing hair with bright colors such as platinum, ash gray, pink, purple and want to retain that hair color, you naturally cannot use shampoo for normal hair. The most ideal friend for hair now is purple shampoo because it has a balancing function to help the hair retain its deep, vibrant color and help the hair retain color longer. Wash your hair with this shampoo once a week.
Although you can rely on purple shampoo, you should not overdo shampoo. You should only wash your hair up to 2 times a week and should alternate purple shampoo with hair nourishing shampoos like protein supplement shampoo, sulfate-free shampoo. That way, your hair will keep the color longer and keep it soft and shiny.
Once you have bleached your hair, the hair will become very weak, dry, brittle and that’s why you have to pay special attention to restoring the hair. Once a week, “nourish” your hair with a deep conditioning mask to moisturize each strand of hair. In addition, you should also use dry conditioner or hair conditioner to replenish protein to restore hair strength.
Protect hair from heat
Hair after bleaching will become absolutely weak, so it is best to minimize the heat impact on your hair such as hair drying, straightening or curling your hair. In case of the need to apply heat to the hair, create a protective film for hair with a specialized product. In addition, bleached hair is also easily attacked by the sun because once bleached, the amount of melanin in the hair will be significantly reduced compared to hair, which often causes hair to lose its ability to protect itself. Therefore, when going out especially when it is in the hot sun, wear a hat to cover your hair and apply it on a special protective hair solution.
Trim your hair often
After being chemically affected, the ends of the hair will become dry and brittle faster than normal. Because of that, you should regularly trim this part of the hair. Besides, when you re-color your hair, you should only dye the new hair roots. Absolutely avoid hair bleaching that has been bleached before.
