How To Bleach And Color Your Hair The Right Way

Jul 15, 2019

If you’re looking to dye your hair a lighter color from your natural hue, you may need to bleach it beforehand. Going platinum blonde or lightening your hair before adding color can leave your strands with some damage, as using hydrogen peroxide and bleach will create an irreversible chemical reaction in the hair cuticle.

Although salon-grade formulas may be more gentle, you’ll still have to prepare for dry and damaged hair, especially if the hair is naturally dark or coarse. Damage from bleaching can be severe and leave your hair feeling fried with a lot of breakage, frizz, flyaways, and dryness. Luckily, there are steps you can take if you’ve decided to go lighter to prevent damage with the use of products and simple treatments that keep your color vibrant for longer.


How to bleach hair on your own

As we mentioned above, bleaching hair for a platinum white or beach-blonde finish can be a meticulous process that could lead to damage. So we always suggest visiting a professional hair care specialist. Looking for a professional salon? Take a look at this list of recommended locations.
