Tips To Hydrate Hair After Bleaching

1. Pre-bleaching care

Pre-bleaching care is a very important step in the bleaching process that many hair stylists skip. This step includes washing hair using coconut oil and applying hydrated hair serum. By doing it, the moisture will be locked inside and the rate of protein loss when bleaching will reduce.

2. Wash your hair less often

Many people misunderstand that hydrating means making your hair exposed to water as much as possible. However, it only makes your hair worse. Washing hair with chemical shampoo will cause your hair to lose more moisture. That is why pro-hair stylists recommend their customers use herbal shampoo instead and only shampoo 1-2 times a week.

Heat styling helps you get bouncy curls, beautiful S-shaped strands and more. On the other hand, it also makes the humidity from deep inside come out and then lose forever. If you cannot avoid the heat styling, we suggest you use heat protestant first.

It is a well-known fact that UV Rays are very harmful to our skin. We have always been told to wear sunscreen before going out in the sun. However, researchers show that UV Rays are also damaging to your hair as much as they are to your skin. There are many products available to protect your hair.
