B E A U T Y / Keeping Bleached Hair Alive

 photo loveaestheticshair.jpg

When I was 10 years old I dyed my hair for the first time. On the rare occasion that my mom went to the hair salon, she took me with her one time. We went to the poshest salon in town, not the type where you bring your kids. (hippie-mom not being the type who likes getting her hair done, I know you're reading mom.) Chez Henri was a place where all the clichés of French hair dressers were a reality. While my mother was getting a wash on the other side of the salon, Henri himself came to me and asked; what is it that you want? I answered red-purplish hair. With no further questions asked that was what I got. Meanwhile the ladies next to mom asked each other; who takes their daughter to the salon and lets her do whatever she wants with her hair? To which mom calmly answered; that would be me. Making the rest of the 15 minutes they had to sit there with wet hair utterly awkward for them. After that day and seeing how hair can instantly transform you, I saved up all my allowances and had enough money every other month to buy a new color, I tried out every hair-coloring-kit available in the drug store. this pretty much went on until getting these colder tones between grey, blue and lilac, that I've stuck to for the longest and feel most myself in.

So after reading my little hair resume, you could almost say that I'm an expert with 15 years of experience that learned everything the hard way (=Dyes gone wrong, hair breaking, hair falling out). That doesn't necessarily make me qualified to give you actual advice on how to bleach and dye your hair, but I could give a few tips on how to take care of it. Which is a question that is asked at least a few times a week. First off, when going to nearly white it will damage your hair. A lot. Afterwards you will have to treat your hair entirely differently than before. These might seem like very small useless tips, but if you apply them all they will have effect and keep delicate, damaged and bleached hair healthier.

/W A S H I N G
I only wash my hair twice a week. The process of washing, drying it, styling it is often is too demanding for bleached hair. Also washing hair washes out the natural oils coming from your scalp, making the hair dry.
/H A I R T I E S
Always use hair ties without a metal part. After switching to softer ones I noticed a lot less breakage at that awkward ear-height.
/T A N G L E S
Always try to avoid tangles. Every time you brush and detangle you have the change of breaking and damaging a few hairs. So tie your hair up before going to sleep, when it is windy outside, or just whenever you can.
/L O W H E A T
Classic one; avoid using heat on your hair. If you have to, put your straightening iron or blow drier on low heat.
/C U T I T
This is probably the maximum length of my hair while being bleached. The terminal hair length has to do with the speed your hair grows versus the speed that your hair breaks. Obviously with bleached damaged hair it will break more. So find out what your length is and keep it at that or shorter to keep it looking healthy.

How can you only wash your hair twice a week?

Amy said...

ahhh wat een lief verhaaltje! Tjah... ik heb zon moeder waar ik pas op mijn 14 voor de eerste enige keer een uitwasbare spoeling in mijn haar mocht. Dit omdat ze zelf overal allergisch voor is, dus het was meer vanuit "safety" dat ik het niet mocht. Echt te cool dat je al zo jong je eigen ding deed... respect.
Die tips zijn echt handig! Ik zie het nual met de ombre, die in onderin mijn haar draag. Afgelopen zomer ging ook steeds lichter, maar mijn haar ging er steeds slechter uitzien.... een goed haarmasker 1x in de week doet ook echt wonderen (die van J beverly hills bijvoorbeeld)

I can't believe how healthy & alive your hair looks after it's been bleached so much & so many times! I haven't colored my hair in years & it just looks crap :(
Your hair is such a dream to me.

What about natural hair masks - like an avocado-honey-lemon hair mask? Or some people swear by eggs. I imagine that doing a hair mask every week would help soooo so much.

I find that using natural oils on my hair (coconut, rapeseed etc.) helps maintain moisture while you wash. It's good to apply a small amount on your hair and scalp either 30mins to 2 hours before you wash or overnight and then wash off in the morning.

The oil makes your hair greasy (which is the whole point since you'll wash it off anyway) and nourishes it. The only problem is, the darker oils may discolor your hair, but coconut works nice for me.

Supposedly you could apply oil on your hair before dyeing. I tried it and found out that it doesn't affect the process at all for regular dyes (just like sebum doesn't and it's welcome for extra protection), but bleaching or lightening could be affected.

You can also apply some oil on the tips of your hair to make them smoother and avoid tangling.

I am literally talking about cooking oils from the grocery store, even though there exist hair products like that too.

Hope that helps!

Christiane said...

I just dyed my hair this morning to be able to apply pink hair dye to the ends of my hair. Anyway, I was wondering what hair dye you used to bleach your hair white, as I fail to find the perfect product? Plus, how dark was your hair before bleaching it white?

Thank you.

Hello, can you expand on the washing bit? It seems self-explanatory - wash your hair twice a week. But what do you do between washes? I wash my hair every other day/day-and-a-half, but it does get noticeably greasy/itchy if I push the extra half-day.

Vani said...

I love your hair colour and it looks amazing on you!
Thanks for the tutorial.

hey anon about the washing:
Getting it greasier is a bit the point. Also if you don't wash it as often, your scalp won't be dried out, so it will produce less oils after you've 'trained it' for a while. In between washes I don't do anything at all to it :)

Peroxide bleach said...

Lots of people like to lighten their hair. It changes their look and may make their face appear brighter in some cases. Nowadays, people have many more products available that are designed for home use.

I think that if individuals want to use hydrogen peroxide hair bleach at home they should read a good tutorial first and even practice on a location that is not so obvious. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Ivania,
I wanted to share with a product that I saw on Youtube. It is called the Splitender, as in "It helps to minimized or end the number of split ends."

It takes batteries and is used every 6 weeks or so. Please let me know it you have it available where you live know anyone who has tried it. It helps keep dyed and processed hair stronger and healthier. Hebben een prachtige dag!! Debbie in Florida

The exercise of fingernail design has been around for the last 5000 years and can be tracked to the people of Indian who ornamented their claws with henna. Now go toward 1932, when the France organization Revlon launched its first fingernail enhance. It was available in an extensive range of colors and used pigmentation instead of colors. Since the Thirties, fingernail art has come a long way.
