They say blondes have more fun, but being Asian, trying to go blonde (or any shade of #UnicornHair) is definitely not fun.
Have you seen what damaged bleached hair looks like – can you say nasty?
What is Bleaching?
A mixture of hydrogen peroxide and ammonia that is used to lighten your natural hair colour through the process of oxidization. Heads up, “peroxide-free” products do still contain other oxidizing agents that can and will damage your hair.
So why is it bad? Bleach actually removes the natural moisture from your hair, hence damaged tresses.
They did say beauty is pain, so here’s how to deal:
This might sound a little gross, but skip the suds (for your hair only!) for a day or two (maybe even three). Your hair is already stripped of moisture, so shampooing it every day is just going to dry it out even more. Introduce a dry shampoo into the mix to keep your hair clean, and when you do shampoo, go for a nourishing shampoo specifically formulated for damaged hair.
Tip: Lather only at your scalp, as it’s the oiliest part. Your hair will be cleaned anyway when you’re rinsing out the suds.
