How to Look After Bleached Blonde Hair and Keep it Looking its Best
Many of us dream of white-blonde hair, but lightening locks with bleach can be drying and damaging. Therefore, it is essential to give your hair the tender loving care it deserves. Here our haircare experts reveal their top tips for how to make bleached hair soft and silky again.
Condition Your Hair
It’s not a secret that bleaching your hair can make it become really dry, so it’s time to find a great leave-in conditioner to treat your bleached hair. Our Touch of Silver leave-in conditioner is a saviour to any bleached hair as the moisturising formula helps to lock in your shine, while ensuring your hair feels smoother after just one wash. Using pro-vitamin B5, it helps to protect your hair from heat damage and split-ends, and nourishes it at the same time. Use our leave-in conditioner daily on wet or towel-dried hair.
Shampoo Less Frequently and with the right products
If you haven’t already invested in a great dry shampoo, now is the time to do so, as it is best to not wash your hair every day after it has been bleached. We would recommend washing your hair every four days for the first few weeks after your colour treatment, using dry shampoo in between.
When you do wash your hair, make sure to weave a purple shampoo into your bleached hair care routine, like our Brightening Shampoo. This will neutralise yellow or brassy tones, helping you to maintain your lightened shade for longer. It’s ideal for people with thin or short hair that gets weighed down easily.
It is also a good idea to introduce a Clarifying Treatment Shampoo into your haircare routine, this is a nourishing clarifying shampoo that helps to remove the impurities from your hair as well as any product build-up that may have occurred. Our PRO:VOKE Touch of Silver Clarifying Treatment Shampoo not only does this, but it hydrates the hair using our new AquaPlex™ moisturising system.
Alternatively, if you have long hair that is very dry and damaged, we would recommend using our Toning Treatment Mask. With nourishing AquaPlex™, this purple hair mask not only neutralises brassy tones, but will leave over-processed hair feeling soft, healthy and hydrated.
Switch Up Your Towels
Consider switching your classic cotton towel for a microfibre version as this will absorb more water, meaning you’ll require less heat to dry your hair. In fact, it’s best to avoid heat-styling as much as possible.
These towels can also prevent frizz! But, remember, always pat your hair dry. Rubbing it will cause friction which can cause frizz and split ends.
Be Gentle When Styling
Whatever colour you are, we would never suggest being rough with your hair, however we would advise taking extra care with bleached hair. Put down your brush and pick up a wide-toothed comb instead. Plus, try not to comb your hair when wet!
Get Regular Trims
If hair is dry, then it may become damaged and split ends could appear. To keep on top of this, visit your hairdressers every 4 to 6 weeks for a trim.
