Learn how to repair hair damaged by bleach

Bleach is one of the harshest ingredients that we can use on our hair, yet many women still get their hair bleached, whether they are going blonde for the summer or adding lighter highlights throughout for more definition. If you find that you are experiencing any of the typical symptoms of hair damaged by bleach, such as brittleness, split ends and hair that breaks off suddenly, it might be time to consider repairing it before the problem gets any worse. Bleach causes damage by stripping your hair of its essential oils that keep it moisturized, so if you plan to continue to use bleach you want to make sure to replace the moisture that you are taking away. One important thing you can do for your hair is to apply a deep conditioning treatment, which will help restore hair and get rid of dryness. Read 11 Best Deep Conditioners for a list of some of the best hair conditioners that will help repair hair damaged by bleach.

Other ways to treat hair damaged by bleach include spraying a leave in conditioner into your hair daily after washing your hair and getting monthly trims. Aussie Leave IN Conditioner is a great product that contains proteins to help repair the damage and it also works by speeding up the healing process. Getting regular haircuts or trims allows newer and healthier hair to grow in while getting rid of damaged and dry hair. It is important to nip split ends in the bud before they have the chance to climb up the hair shaft, causing more damage. You can also make a variety of hair masks from ingredients such as avocado and eggs and you should also toss out hair products that are drying and causing more damage to your hair.

Thanks for the information, very helpful! Argan oil is great for repairing bleached hair, pro naturals argan oil especially, it's what I'm currently using for repair.
