When bleaching the hair, the natural color pigment is removed, causing nutrients, lipids, and other components to be removed, leaving the strands sensitive, fragile, and dry. For this reason, it is important to reinforce at home treatments and at the salon.

To take care of bleached hair it is essential to follow a hair care schedule for hydration, nutrition, and reconstruction of the strands. These treatments avoid the yellowish blonde and restore the life of the hair strands. 

Hair that is bleached become very damaged, since this chemical acts directly on the hair fiber and opens the hair cuticles, removing all the pigment inside. With the cuticles open, nutrients, lipids, and the mass of the hair fiber end up also going away.

Avoid excessive use of heat tools, such as diffuser, flat iron, and hair dryer, because they end up making the hair shaft (which is already fragile) even more dry, opaque, and brittle.

Hot water can also damage the hair, leaving it rough and porous, due to the swelling of the cuticle due to heat. The leave-in is an ally of bleached hair, since this product enhances the treatment and recovery of the strands, giving shine and increasing the resistance of the strands to daily damage.
