For all you blondes out there!

So i started dying my hair blonde in July and just had it done again in November. I've been buying moisture conditioner and anti breakage shampoo and I've tried a couple masks and I'm using the dumb blonde hair mask by bed head. Nothing seems to be making my hair feel better, maybe my hair just isn't taking blonde very well or if there something I'm doing wrong. I wash my hair every 3 days , and after I shower my hair is tangly and a lot of hair is on the brush when I'm done, and when I style my hair I also shed a lot, and even just through out the day my hair gets tangly. Also with the bed head stuff, I know not to use a lot of that just cause of the protein that's in it could make your hair break if you use it too often. Just curious if this happens to other blondes! And if you have any tips that would be helpful! I'm not sure if I should just stop bleaching or what.

Thanks!

I just use deep conditioningners or hair masks pretty much every day and leave it in while u do everything else. Maybe try a conditioner spray too when u brush out ur hair. It sounds like u used some pretty harsh stuff when getting ur hair blonde.

I got it done at a salon both times! And when they washed my hair it was so tangly, it took them awhile to get the tangles out. I had heavy highlights both times. Okill try doing a mask every day and see what happens,what masks do you use? I LOVE being blonde, but I guess if every I try doesn't work I'll just Havel dot go back to my natural, which is a light brown/ dark blonde.

I'm naturally the same color as you it seems. The key for me was to find the right hairdresser.

Only the roots or non bleached sections should ever have bleach put on them. Bleaching bleached hair is awful for it. I don't do anything but shampoo mine every other day. Conditioner weighs mine down so I rarely use it.

I got a detangling brush by Michel Mercier which had helped tons as I'm trying to grow it out again.

My hair was also close to black last winter and I'm fully blond again.

I have naturally light blond hair but like platinum highlights and have super thin hair so understand tangle problem. I use clairol shimmering lights purple shampoo it not only takes away any brassyness but has lot protein conditioning properties plus use those conditioners like they give you if you color your own hair. Go to Sallys beauty Supply and get oil conditioners put on all over hair before bed and wear shower cap to keep from getting on pillows.
You can also get that shimmering lights shampoo at Sally beauty Supply. Hope this helps

I agree with this. I used to dye my hair all the time and quickly learned that bleach seriously damages hair so we hVe to be careful about not overbleaching.

Coconut oil makes my hair feel much better. I would put it on at night and leave it overnight then rinse out.

Also when they do your highlights are they putting bleach just on the regrowth or all over previously bleached hair? Bleaching previously bleached hair makes the condition of it really bad. If the hair is dull or brassy then a toner should be used not bleaching it again.

You could also try Morrocon oil. You put it in the hair and leave it.

My hair haar been blonde most my life. January 2010, I dyed it dark, lady may I started going back blonde. I gradually did it. I've now done it four times, every six to eight weeks I think. My next appointment is January 30tg. My hair was healthy to begin, and going blonde I really wanted to keep it that way as it's growing out, now longest I've ever had it. Glad to say it's still super healthy, and definitely blonde..
So just take your time going lighter. Good conditioner, leave in conditioner, deep conditioner will definitely help..

I am going to sound like an advertisement, but here's what I've discovered after highlighting my hair every 3 months for the last 20 years (with 2 'natural' breaks to see if my ashy color changed any and give my hair a rest).

1. Buy a de-tangler. Paul Mitchell makes a good one for kids. When I was almost platinum blonde, the tangles were worst for me. Right now, I am close enough to my real color I don't have to use one.
2. Try to go to a full blown Aveda salon for your highlights if you have one nearby. They're more natural and I did notice a difference when I was going to Aveda (less tangles, breakage, etc.)

I do lowlights and highlights in the winter and then go all highlights and blonder for spring and summer...that could help you too, since it gives your hair a bleach break.

I wash my hair everyday, but only use conditioner. The only time my hair is shampooed is at the salon. I started with Wen, but have the same results with Herbal Essences. I rub it into my scalp and ends, wait 5 mins or so, add a little water, rub my scalp and rinse. The condition of my hair has dramatically improved. I also use a purple shampoo here and there. I second the not over processing...blonde doesn't need anymore blonde put on it, maybe toner. Hairdressers should just do the roots! Good luck

I'm naturally dark blond , was very light when I was a child . Since teenage years tried all colours possible Then redhead for 5 years , brunette for another 5 years and now back to my natural blond . It took me good 9-12 months to lighten my hair gradually . My hairdresser suggested very fine highlights , after we stripped most of the dark colour and I was reddish brown , after that it was 6-9 months to get me blond . I really wanted to do it faster but my hairdresser refused to damage my hair , and as other girls mentioned , don't bleach highlits repeatedly . We use lots of treatment to soften my hair , I use at home every time before I was my hair ( overnight ) Argan oil on my scalp and hair , I'm also using treatment with Argan oil when I wash my hair . Keratin treatment can help but need to consult specialist depending on your current hair condition . I agree about Aveda as well , it's a good option .
Good luck !!!

I used to have blonde highlights (heavily blonde, despite being naturally brown-black haired), and found that the only way to combat the constant tangles and dryness from the bleaching was this:

1) use a very rich, moisturizing shampoo. Pantene makes good ones.

2) Ditto for conditioner. Leave in the conditioner for as long as possible before rinsing out. Do weekly deep-conditioning treatments if needed

3) Pat hair dry... do NOT rub vigorously!

4) Don't ever use a brush. Only use a wide-tooth comb for detangling. And before you do that, spray on a leave-in heat-protectant conditioner.

5) If blow-drying, use the lowest heat-setting.

6) After styling, apply gloss drops / shine drops to the ends.

After doing this for a couple weeks, you'll notice that it's possible to have really SHINY and healthy-looking blonde hair.

My hair is super light blonde, and dyed. It used to be black years ago and when I started dying it back it was like straw. It is now super soft. I think it is important to use a really good shampoo and conditioner - Redken is a good one, the gold bottles that say super soft on it. It started to get out of my price range so now I am using Nexus - the one that says for extra moisturizing or something - and I am really happy with it.

I also wash my hair every 3 days. After I wash it I put in a Nexus deep conditioner (after your shower, the one that stays in), chi silk infusion, and its a 10.

I use Paul Mitchell the Super strengthener. I believe it supposed to put back in 60% of your strength back in the first time. It's professional use only because of it being so strong, so you can't buy it like I do, but you can get it done at a salon that offers Paul Mitchell treatments

Also I use Paul Mitchell the detangler conditioner and not only does it make my hair super soft, it closes the cuticle of your hair by lowering the hairs PH to where it should be. My hair is half black half platinum and using those products my platinum side is just as soft and silky as the black

I've been highlighting my hair for about 13 yrs now and I've tried many conditioners,masks etc... So far my favorite that I've repurchased for the last yr or so is the It's A Miracle 10 leave in. W/o it my hair is awful to try and comb out while wet, almost impossible! Also my hair is very long and fine so it gets greasy and weighed down easily so this is the only product that seems to keep my hair super soft yet still have volume.

Yeah I I had full foils both times so I'm sure already bleached hair was being bleached again.i was doing highlights each time cause I didn't want to have nasty roots comingin.and each time I had someone different because the first time my hair was really tangly so I wasn't sure if it was something she did, but it happened again the second time with someone different. Yeah I've been trying to grow my hair out but it seems like every time I go to get it dyed I've had to trim it, I guess that comes with getting bleach.

Thanks you guys! You all gave me great tips! My hair is pretty much all one color now, and the roots growing in don't look bad, it's sorta blended looking, I guess from doing highlights. Because you guys are saying re bleaching already bleached hair is bad, should I not do highlights again? Should I just have her get my roots? I'm just nervous it if
s gonna grow in ugly

I am naturally blonde, just not THIS blonde. I do a root touch up and a bleach wash to tone down the brassiness every month. I've talents 100s of dollars trying yp keep my hair healthy and the only thing ill EVER reccomend is VIRGIN COCONUT OIL!!! I do a deep condition after bleach use but i also have some mixed in with my conditioner for a normal wash. I Aldo naturally have very thick, frizzy, coarse hair and this stuff has been a god send to help with all that... think African american habit but blonde :-/ lol my hair is do healthy, growing so much better and quicker, less breakage and split ends.
