Miley 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!
