How to take care of your hair after bleaching and colouring


While bleaching your hair, its structure goes through a significant change so you must use products that restore its PH.


Bleaching powder is alkaline. Due to this chemical property the cuticle (outermost layer of hair) of hair expands and the bleaching powder penetrates.

After having used alkaline products you must stop the expanding effect by applying acid products (neutralizing) otherwise you hair will get damaged.

There should be more acid bits remaining in your hair which contract hairs and restore hair structure to the original condition.

These kind of end-of-dye products have to be applied only after chemical treatments, but never mistake them for hair colour conditioning products.

Every producer has a different end-of-dye PH restoring product that should be used only after chemical treatments.

Water intake is very important when it comes to taking care of your hair, you can achieve this by taking mineral substances.

If the cuticle is damaged a great amount of protein vanishes. In this case you need to take amino acid to replace them but it would never happen since I have worked out a diagnosis sheet for you where you can read about your own tailor made bleaching plan relevant to your natural hair colour and hair structure.

Between hair dyes I do recommend to use shampoo and conditioner containing keratin which moisturizes your hair’s internal structure and makes fibres soft.

I recommend to use argan oil on your hair ends. It builds in immediately. Argan oil should also be used before tanning. Both skin and hair should be protected against dryness.

Keep in mind protecting your hair before blow drying or flat ironing!
