bleached hair is breaking off

by Liz Avila
(California, US)

I bleached my hair twice in the last 24 hours. Now, my hair feels like rubber and its breaking when its wet. When its dry is feels fried. Do I need to cut my hair or can I treat it and repair the damage?


*************

The only way to find out is to try something first. There's no way I can tell you if you will or won't have to cut your hair. Everyone's hair responds to treatments differently. From what you've described though, the prognosis isn't very good.

Bleach is such a strong product. That's why it's always a good idea to only use a cap and use bleach to add highlights to your hair only.

You will need to use a rescue conditioner like Nexxus emergencee to stop the effects of the bleach.

Try alternating use of both rescue treatments and heavy moisturizers. If neither of them help, then yes, you will probably need to cut your hair and start over.

Think of the bright side! At least it's summer now so having shorter hair won't be that much of a bummer. In fact, a really cute short haircut will help keep you cooler.

This is a hard lesson you had to learn. You can't just slap bleach on your hair and expect things will go well. You have to prepare your hair first, before using any harsh chemical in your hair.

Your hair is precious so remember to take good care of it.
