Care of Bleached and Coloured Hair

If you have bleached and coloured hair, it’s important to take extra care and attention to keep it from drying out and ensuring it looks nice and healthy.

Here are some of our top tips on caring for bleached and coloured hair!

1: Use a Gentle Shampoo & Conditioner

There are many different shampoos and conditioners out there, but we recommend looking for ones that are sulfate-free and specifically made for colour-treated hair. For sulfate-free shampoo, we recommend brands such as Paul Mitchell, Davines and Olaplex.

2: Use a Heat Protector

If you like to use hair straighteners, curlers, blow dryers or any other hot styling tools, make sure to use a heat-protectant spray before styling. Heat can damage bleached and coloured hair (and non-treated hair), which will make it more prone to breakage.

3: Use a Hair Mask For Bleached and Coloured Hair

Using a hair mask or deep conditioner once a week will prevent your hair from becoming dry and brittle. It will nourish and hydrate, leaving it looking and feeling healthier.

We also have our ‘Conditioning Treatments’ from £10, which are great for restoring the shine and hydration back into your hair. You could also try out leave-in conditioners. These are great for giving your hair even more moisture! 

4: Get Regular Trims

Making sure you get regular trims will keep your hair looking its best. Regular trims will get rid of split ends and any other damaged areas.

5: Use Colour-Safe Products

If you have coloured blonde hair, coloured red hair, or any other colour, there are many products out there that are specially formulated for bleached and coloured hair. It’s always best to use these, as they will help extend the life of your new hair colouring.

6: Avoid Washing Hair Too Often

We know it can be hard not to wash your hair every day, but to keep the longevity of your colour-treated hair, try and limit to only washing when necessary.

7: Stick to a Hair Care Routine

It’s vital to have a good hair care routine when you have bleached or coloured hair to keep your hair healthy. We even recommend investing in a good quality hair brush. High-quality hair brushes will also help to prevent tangles and breakages. 

By following our above tips, you can have healthy coloured hair! Just remember to be gentle with your hair, and use products that are for coloured hair.

Lastly, too much bleaching and dyeing can damage your hair, so try and limit this. Always talk to a hairstylist and make a hair care plan that works for you
