Composit Bleached HairMiley Cyrus launched a hearftelt appeal on Instagram the other day, advising women to absolutely avoid bleaching their hair themselves. If you really have to subject your hair to such a disruptive treatment, then please, go to a professional studio, and avoid doing it yourself at home with low-quality products, and little or no experience in hair coloring. Everyone knows this: when you want to go for fairer hair, it is quite rare to attain that result without heavily damaging your locks. Kristen Stewart knows a thing or two about that, when she decided to ignore the fact that her hair was “f***ed up” (her words for it in a recent interview) to just enjoy her new white blonde color. If the damage is done already, how can we take care of our damaged hair after bleaching? We selected a bunch of products that will be perfect for post-bleaching emergency care. Remember these two most helpful secret tips:

1) Treat your hair to ridiculous amounts of nourishing masks, both homemade ones, and from the store. The key idea here is to nourish your hair: you must try to compensate for your hair’s loss in moisture and shine with a little external help. The best thing you can do is to apply repairing treatment onto your hair overnight — don’t forget to cover your pillow with a towel. This will allow your hair to slowly and appropriately absorb the product, reaping the treatment’s full benefits.

2) Use specific products designed for dyed or heavily damaged hair. Throw away the shampoo you’ve been using so far, and get ready to work with these new allies. You won’t see any instant results, but in the long run, you will definitely be grateful you changed your routine. These products are specifically formulated to take care of your hair’s health, even when it seems almost impossible to repair it anymore.

Should you feel at one point like your hair is damaged beyond remedy, be ready to throw in the towel, and go for a super-short haircut. You will at least be following the latest trends!

    I have dyed and bleached my hair to a pulp over the years and I am trying to regain my natural healthy hair. As it has taken years of abuse I realise this will not happen over night. The Pureology Conditioner does work a bit, but the Somaluxe Argan Oil is what made my hair looks like I am 20 years old again! I massaged it into my scalp and hair and have left overnight and washed out in the morning, my pillow wasn’t stained or greasy looking so thats a relief.

    You can feel the difference, my hair doesn’t feel as coarse and dried out. I blowdried it and it felt great, shiny and looked healthy and sleek. I do recommend the Somaluxe Argan Oil as a deep conditioning treatment once or twice a week to anyone who has dyed hair. The bottle isn’t very big but you don’t really need a lot, I would estimate this to last me atleast 3 months

        Thank you very much for this advise. I wanted my hair ombré so I dyed it once but the colour didn’t come out beacase I have black hair. I dyed it with a different product but it just made it brown. So the last idea was to bleach my hair at first it was fine but I went to a very hot country and swam everyday which made me have to wash my hair everyday. I will definitely be trying this product out.

    Much needed advice, I just went beach blonde and it’s so hard to find product recommendations

    Definitely great advice to go to a salon when going this extreme with your hair. Really enjoying these separate smaller posts over coffee, but when will Chiari be back with her featured fashion and travel posts?
