Protect Your Dyed or Bleached Hair with these 4 Healthy Tips
Mom, it’s not a phase! –and it will never be. Bleached hair always comes and go, and if you want to do it right make sure to follow this healthy tips to keep your hair looking strong and full of life.
Do not wash it right away.
Ideally, you want to wait 24 to 48 hours after bleaching your hair to wash it. Washing it right away or the next day, will result in dehydration, discoloration, and would wash away hair natural oils. Let your hair take a break. Your scalp will regenerate its essential oils and allow moisture and shine to return to your hair.
Also, we strongly recommend to understand the way your PH works before deciding to wash your hair every day, or between days. Some experts would tell you to wash your hair at least every day for a month to equalize lost PH. Understanding your own hair will give you the best results.
Invest in your care
If you want to keep your hair healthy and the color, you have to invest a little in your care.
Use neutral shampoo and a Hair Mask to moisturize and close the cuticle, thus avoiding unnecessary hair loss. At SOCAP Original USA, there are several products that would help you achieve this, like the EXTENSION CARE Instant Restructuring Mask or the HARGANIA Hair Mask with Macadamia Oil and Argan.
Among the treatments you choose, try to use at least one that doesn’t include rinsing, such as oils and combing cream.
Loose hair, don’t care.
Bleach hair tends to get thinner and using tight ponytails can help deteriorate the overall status of your hair. Save it for special occasions, like exercising. Using ponytails to sleep, or after a shower will only harm your hair.
Just remember this is temporary. Give your hair a few days after bleaching it, then go back to your not-loose hair (if you can.)
Not the tone you wanted? You’ll have to wait
Reaching the perfect tone it’s a matter of expertise, time, and a little bit of luck. If you didn’t manage to get it on the first try you will have to wait at least 2 months to do some retouching. All there’s left to do is have some patience and not rushing the process. Take care of your hair and allow it to evolve progressively. Then tweak accordingly.
Oh, and go with a trusted stylist. You might spend some extra money, but your hair will thank you for it.
