I have bleached my hair probably about 20 times. (baring in mind I am 16!) This is quite alot of bleach for my hair, but thankfully I still have a full head of it, it is shoulder length, and it feels lovely
So the 2 most important things to consider when bleaching your hair is preparation (before bleaching) and re-structuring/moisturising (after bleaching).
Here's how to prepare your hair for bleaching..Step 1
Starting about 3-4 weeks before you plan to bleach your hair, start using an intensive shampoo (try Aussie 3 minute miracle or Tresemme luxurious moisture) every time you wash your hair. Step 2
Once or twice a week, do a deep conditioning treatment on your hair (try Tresemme re-structuring mask). Dampen your hair, towel dry, then smother your hair in the mask. Leave on for as long as possible (at least 30mins) then wash thouroughly.Step 3
A couple of days (preferably less than a week) before you bleach, go to the hairdresser (or get a friend to do it) to have an all over trim to get rid of any split ends.
