When we use bleach, we generally assume that the damage is done. Indeed, it can be extremely complicated to get your hair to go back to what it was without just waiting for it to grow out. However, there are a few options that will help you get your bounce back, and restore your hair health.
Firstly, start with good shampoo products that heal your hair strands while protecting your color. Many cleansing products sacrifice either your color or your hair health. However, there are products that can both heal your hair and make your color stay vibrant. Look for a restructuring shampoo and conditioner system like the NIA Restructuring line at DS Laboratories. These products will boost your bounce, all while sealing up damaged hair. Perhaps one of the best parts of the NIA products is that it detangles without using any mechanical forces (like brushing), which is almost always an issue for people with curly hair.
If your scalp has been damaged by the bleaching process or is particularly sensitive, you will benefit from a shampoo like the RADIA High-Performance Purifying Shampoo and Conditioner. Together, these products help heal and protect a damaged scalp while curbing frizz and maintaining your color. Preserving your color is particularly important because you do not want to keep visiting the salon for more bleach, as the more bleach you use, the more damage you will have on your hair.
Secondly, you will need to use a product that helps restore strength in the cuticle. NIA FIX instantly starts restructuring the cuticle and repairing bonds from the inside out in your hair. It not only repairs the hair strands, but also heals split ends, making your hair softer, brighter, and stronger. NIX FIX does not compromise your hair color, so you don’t have to stress over having more bleaching appointments to keep your color vibrant.
