The Best Bleached Hair Leave-In Conditioners

The Best Bleached Hair Leave-In Conditioners ...

Bleach works by breaking down the fatty acids around the hair shaft, allowing it to penetrate the shaft to lift darker pigments. This can lead to hair dryness and, in more severe cases, limp texture and breakage. Leave-in conditioners, according to colorist Hitomi Ikeda, are effective at repairing damaged bonds and restoring hair's luster.

What Is the Effects of Bleach on Hair?

If you do an at-home bleach job and leave the bleach on your hair for too long, it can irreparable damage to the hair shaft, which may then lead to dryness, brittleness, and in the most severe cases, breakage. When done properly, bleach safely lifts natural pigments and hair dye, leading to higher hair porosity.

How To Suggest Bleached Hair's Best Leave-In Conditioners

Ikeda suggests that Keratin, collagen, and protein be used as leave-in conditioners for bleached hair. These ingredients help to repair broken bonds and repair any damage that might have occurred due to bleaching. In addition, you should look for moisturizing oils like argan oil and coconut oil, which can penetrate deep into the cortex to restore hair health.

First, shampoo and condition your hair as you normally would. Ikeda suggests using shampoos and conditioners that contain citric or lactic acid to [rebalance] the pH levels and help re-strengthen the hair post-bleach. Use a microfiber towel or hair wrap to wick away excess moisture. Then, apply a dime-sized amount of leave-in conditioner through the mid-ends of your damp hair (or, if its a spray bottle, mist it liberal
