Good morning :) In January I bleached my dark brown hair for the first time. I knew it would wreak havoc on my hair, which is naturally dry but healthy as I use argan oil daily. After two salon trips and 3 bleaches, its the right colour (except for some yellow tones sometimes) but my hair is a nightmare. I NEVER use heat, always let it try naturally, still use argan oil daily and regularly use deep conditioning treatments and cover it in coconut oil. What else can i do?! Its so fluffy!! :(

Hello! You’re doing pretty much all you can with oils and deep conditioning. The only thing you can add to your routine that will REALLY help is a protein treatment. Right now your hair is probably pretty much hollow, these protein treatments act like fillers. I love Joico Kpak re-constructor. Its highly recommended by most hair dressers too.

Other than that, make sure you get a trim, you’d be amazed what taking just a cm off the ends can do for the look of your hair. 

Unfortunately bleach damage can’t really be reversed, only helped.  

Tip for bleaching your roots!

If you bleach your roots once a month or so then you’ll probably notice that despite how careful you are, its hard not to get overlap and do the occasional damage. 

  • Minimise the bleach damage by using a low volume peroxide (20 vol or lower) 
  • Do a bleach bath! If you’ve got a good brand of bleach, they are fantastic at lifting, and the heat from your head when doing your roots means your bleach will develop quickly. Instead of doing a scoop of bleach powder to two scoops of peroxide try this 

1 scoop powder, 1 scoop shampoo, 1 scoop peroxide. 

You should see the same amount of lift and minimise any damage!

  • If you can managed it start from the front to back the first time you do your roots then back to front the next time you do them. This way the front doesn’t end up developing for the longest amount of time each session. 

Any questions or tutorial requests today?
