Re: shampoo?


Coloured or bleached? Very different chemical processes.

Re: shampoo?


Your best remedy is going to be a cut. When you lighten your hair this is what happens (I’m going to try to explain via symbols). 

Before lightening     During         After 

           |                      |  |               | |

Bleach blasts the cuticle wide open to allow the chemical process to take place. The cuticle does eventually go back to being “|” but if your hair is badly damaged by bleach (for instance someone who did it at home and didn’t know what they were doing) the cuticle can remain blasted open. This is when hair just breaks right off. You’ll notice how after you lighten your hair, it feels a bit thicker for a few days..your cuticles remain open for about 72 hours. *Sometimes* the ends of the hair as they are the oldest just can’t recover, they need to be cut off. 

After that I would recommend Redken Bleach Recovery Lamellar Treatment with Redken All Soft Shampoo.
