Keeping Bleached Hair Healthy and Maintaining a Beauty Routine

Beauty

Bleaching can have damaging effects on hair but these are preventable if you add moisture to ensure a shiny and healthy appearance. Dedication and consistency are necessary for effectively preventing your hair from breaking and drying out.

Washing your Hair

Shampoos are formulated to keep hair clean by removing oil, dirt and grime but excessive washing can strip your hair of its natural oils. Within the initial weeks you can wash your hair a few times each week or as often as your stylist recommends. Use gentle cleansing products on your roots in between shampooing and washes.

Hair Masks

Consider applying a quality hair mask at least once each week and gently combing through it for equal distribution of the product. Follow the directions regarding how long you should leave the mask on your hair. Focus on finding a mask that is specially designed for dry, damaged or color treated hair. Deep conditioning treatments are also recommended for moisturizing your hair.

Drying your Hair without Heat

Use microfiber towels to dry your hair after washing rather than blow drying that subjects your hair to a lot of heat. These types of towels will also help to combat the frizzing that often occurs with bleached hair. When you dry your hair, avoid rubbing it vigorously and gently squeeze and pat the hair until it dries.

Combing and Brushing

Bleaching can make hair brittle and you need to brush or comb it gently when you want to style it. Wide tooth combs and soft bristle brushes can be used. Begin from the ends and gradually move up to the roots of your hair.

Leave-In Conditioners

One of the essential things that you can do to restore the softness of your hair is conditioning. Leave-in conditioners are worthwhile additions to hair care routines. Find products that will replenish the natural oils that are stripped away during the process of bleaching.

Heat Protection

  • Avoid styling tools such as curling irons that expose bleached hair to a lot of heat. If you use these types of tools, invest in hair products that can provide protection from the damage that high temperatures may cause.
  • Products include creams, mists and sprays, depending on what works for your hair, how you style it and affordability. Identify the product that will nourish your bleached hair and moisturizes it as well.
  • Limit frequent and direct exposure to the sun that can further dry your hair and strip its color.
  • A good hair oil or serum will help to replace the oil that is diminished when you bleach your hair. Use the oil sparingly to keep it shiny and soft.
  • Treat yourself to hair salon treatment for a deep moisture treatment that will minimize frizz and enhance softness.

Trimming the Ends

Bleaching your hair often leads to split ends. When spit ends are not dealt with, they can split the entire hair shaft and create a straw-like appearance. Trim your hair as often as recommended, which is usually every month or 6 weeks.

Maintaining the Color

Touch up the roots of your hair regularly to deal with how the bleach develops along the hair that is close to your scalp. This will also ensure that your hair color is even. Minimize damage by bleaching the newly grown darker hair instead of bleaching all your hair.

Beauty and Skincare

Keeping your skin clean will prevent it from becoming clogged and susceptible to breakouts.  Take proper care of your skin by using a cleanser that is suitable for your skin type. Daily use is necessary for consistency and results. Adopt the habit of regularly washing your face each morning and night.

Exfoliate

Exfoliate your skin on a weekly basis to remove dead skin cells that ca make your skin look uneven and dull. Use the right product to keep your skin fresh and vibrant. Exfoliate gently by using circular motions and applying light pressure on your skin.

Minimize Skin Damage

  • Avoid excessive contact with your face, pulling your skin and trying to pop simples.
  • Touching your face excessively as the day goes on can be damaging when you clog your pores with dirt and create wrinkles or fine lines.
  • Wear sunscreen on a daily basis to ensure that your skin in adequately protected from irreversible damage that can be caused by exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun.

Moisturize

Regardless of the type of skin you have, you need a good moisturizer that will nourish and hydrate it. Choose products that consist of natural ingredients and use hydrating lotions as soon as you get out of the bath or shower for better absorption. Moisturizer is crucial for replenishing your skin everyday.
