Based on a study that was conducted in 2011, bleach (hydrogen peroxide) is an ingredient that manages to increase the stains on our hair and helps decompose the melanin that it naturally has. Swelling is the first consequence and that’s why damaged bleached hair looks so voluminous. Also, the lack of melanin makes your hair look colorless and it changes to reddish or yellowish tones based on what color the hair dye was.
Apegeo found 11 of the most effective ways to repair damaged hair that can be done by either a professional hairdresser or by yourself at home.
1. Get a Keratin treatment.
The first solution that most salons will offer for damaged bleached hair is a keratin treatment. These treatments add keratin back to your hair. First, a serum is applied to your hair and then it is infused into your damaged locks with a flat iron. A keratin treatment can last between one and 2 months, depending on how often you wash your hair.
