Hair Care Tips For Bleached Hair
Bleached your hair? Whether you like it or not, you’ve just signed up for that “extra hair care ” life. If you want to keep it healthy that is. Taking care of your hair is one thing, but caring for color-treated and bleached hair is a whole different ball game. You need to take several more steps in your hair care routine when you have bleached hair. Here are my top 5 hair care tips for bleached hair!
Tip Number 1: CONDITION CONDITION CONDITION!
This has got to be the most important thing I can tell you to do! Deep condition once a week with a hair mask or almond oil, and condition in the shower when you wash your hair. I actually sleep in my hair mask/almond oil overnight and wash it in the morning so it can soak up all of the good stuff. I highly recommend using the Olaplex leave in hair conditioner.

Tip Number 2: Cut down on washing your hair.
Make dry shampoo your best friend. My favorite dry shampoo is by Dove. I typically use this for second and third-day hair, and usually by the third-day hair my hair is either in a bun or a cute braid. By washing your hair less frequently, you’ll prevent for over drying it out even more.
Tip Number 3: Lay off the daily heat.
Get creative with heatless hair styles. Wash your hair at night to let it air dry overnight vs using a blow dryer. Use hair rollers to add lift and waves. Braid your hair and leave it over night for curlier waves. Need to use heat? Use a heat protecting spray and set your hair appliance to the lowest heat setting possible to get the job done.
Tip Number 4: Get regular hair cuts and treatments.
Once you bleach your hair, the ends will be heavily dried out. If you do not start taking care of your split ends, your hair will look more and more damaged. Frequently get your hair trimmed. To take it a step further, visit your hair salon and ask for an olaplex hair treatment.
Tip Number 5: Leave it in!
Leave-in conditioners and leave-in serums should be staple items in your hair care routine. Remember, after bleaching your hair is now really dry, so nourishing it as much as you can is important. Always make sure to never leave the house without some sort of leave-in Cream Conditioner like the one from Olaplex.
