Changing your hair color after bleaching is all fun and games until your hair becomes dry and brittle. If you are struggling with damaged hair after bleaching then we have just the right solutions for you.
Bleach removes the color from your hair by breaking apart the protein in the hair strands. The color might become lighter but the strands are also left weaker.
Frizz and extreme dryness are commonly accompanied by bleach. Below are 5 tips you can consider to hydrate your hair after bleaching.
1- Hot towel treatment
This is very easy. All you have to do is massage your hair with warm olive oil and wrap them with a damp warm towel. Be sure not to heat it too much.
2- Yogurt with egg
This is probably one of the oldest but the most effective ways to treat your hair. Mix yogurt and egg and apply it to your hair strands.
Yogurt is known as the ‘natural’ conditioner of the hair. It prevents hair fall while maintaining the pH of your hair as well. On the other hand, eggs provide your hair with the much-needed vitamins and minerals. The yolk is loaded with healthy fats which moisturize dry hair and treat them.
Apply the mixture for one hour before rinsing it off with a shampoo.
3- Mayonnaise hair treatment
Mayonnaise is packed with amino acids and oils which is why it deeply conditions your hair. Apply mayonnaise to wet hair and wear a shower cap. Then rinse it off.
4- Select the right shampoo
One of the biggest mistakes people make is not to be mindful when choosing shampoo. If you have dyed and bleached hair, make sure you select a sulfate-free formula. Consider the other ingredients that you must avoid as well.

5- Avoid heating tools
Since your hair is already damaged and compromised, it is advised to give your hair some break from the heating tools. Heating tools dry the hair even more and literally fry them.
Always be sure to apply a good and effective heat protectant if you can not avoid heating tools.
