Women tend to want to change their appearance, play with style, with hair color. It's very easy to go from a brunette to a blonde, if you don't really think about the health of your hair. But after lightening procedures that do not spare the hair at all, it is very difficult to return them to their former shine and health. We are not always aware of the consequences of such actions. What can be done when our hair has lost its color, and with it its natural strength?
Start the recovery process by cutting off the ends of the bleached hair. How long to trim depends on how much the hair has suffered during the lightening procedure.
If the hair breaks off and stretches, then they can no longer be helped. In this case, you should gradually cut them off.
The structure of bleached hair is such that it is empty on the inside. They become so because during the discoloration, natural pigment is washed out of them.
Use a mild shampoo for bleached hair. After that, your hair will be shiny and easier to comb.
Apply conditioner to your hair after each wash. Use a leave-in cream for dry ends. It will help to smooth the exposed scales of dry hair.
While you are intensively rebuilding your curls, try to avoid using styling products. Hair dryers, irons and curling irons are also very harmful to hair. Use their help as little as possible. Give your hair some strength.
What material your comb is made of is important for the health of your hair. Choose those made from natural materials. A wooden comb is great and won't damage your hair.
Never comb your hair until it is dry. During this procedure, the hair becomes stretched and brittle.
Well-bleached hair is helped by rinsing with decoctions of herbs such as St. John's wort, mint, chamomile. Also rinsing with milk or beer will give strength to your curls.
To help your hair, so to speak, from the inside, take vitamins A, E and B.
Hair damaged by discoloration needs additional nutrition. To restore your curls, use oil wraps. Almond, peach, apricot and burdock oils are perfect for this.
Apply warm oil to your hair and wrap your head in a towel. After two hours, wash off with your regular shampoo.
