How I Rescued My Bleach Ravaged Hair

ps babes (399)

I’ve been bleaching my hair on and off since I was 16. I started doing it myself at home, and then progressed to getting it done at a salon every six to eight weeks. Not really knowing any better, I was going to a well known chain (one that rhymes with ‘phoney and pie’… ahem) for around three years, and unwittingly allowing them to ravage my fuchsia tresses more and more with each visit!

I’m not really sure if it was just inexperience with unnatural colouring or what, but when I became friends with Elbie and decided to go to her for my hair preening instead, she informed me that my hair was… to put it bluntly… completely fucked.

Obviously we can’t know for sure, but she suggested that it looked like the bleach had been applied really carelessly. My hair is naturally very dark so perhaps it was just left on for too long, under too much heat. She said it also looked like the bleached areas had overlapped each time, again, most likely in an attempt to get it as light as possible.

When I started to see Elbie, my hair resembled chewing gum when it was wet (stretchy and thin!) and was like crunchy straw when it was dry. It was also THIN AS HELL. What a cacophony of delights!

You can see how awful it used to be in these photos. Look at the ends especially – frazzled! My hair also wouldn’t grow any longer than this, it would just snap off. Sad times…

Still don’t believe how bad it was? How about an extreeeeeme close-up?!

bleach damaged hair

I’m not gonna lie, when I first had this realisation I cried. A lot. I was actually very near just chopping the whole lot off and starting again, or at least going back to my natural colour. Luckily my fairy hairmother pulled me back from the brink and promised that we could fix it. That was probably about two years ago, and now my hair has never looked better!

Here’s how we did it:

Lop off the straggly bits

The first thing we had to do was cut off the damaged bits. As you can see my hair was already pretty damn short so I managed to convince Elbie to just do a few millimetres at a time. If we’d taken all of the damaged bits off, I’d have been practically scalped!

When your hair is as destroyed as mine was, the ends are probably not salvageable. Rip that metaphorical plaster off and chop off as much off as you can bear!

Restore the protein

Hair is made of protein and chemical damage is essentially the degradation of those proteins that make up the outer cuticle layer. The cuticle is made up of keratin (protein) cells that fit together a bit like scales and create a waterproof and airtight barrier around the cortex. When you use bleach, the chemicals in it cause those cuticle scales to lift and separate, therefore exposing the cortex.

So the first thing you need to do is repair this outer layer by getting as much protein back into your mop as possible. When you use products with it in, you are effectively replacing the missing and damaged keratin from your hair. This will help to patch up the frayed cortex and smooth out the scales.

I started by using Redken Extreme shampoo, conditioner, treatments and their anti-snap heat protector lotion. Be sure you only use this stuff as long as you need it though (while your hair is still at that stringy when wet stage) because it has a LOT of protein in it. If you use them for too long it will cause a build up in your hair which can make it break even easier. Hair that breaks with very little effort is a sign of an over-abundance of protein, and a deficiency of moisture.

You can also use homemade hair masks about once or twice a week if you’d like too. Make them from anything high in protein – eggs, mayo, olive oil, banana, avocado, coconut or almond oil!

Slather your head in moisture

As well as being protein deficient, your bleach mangled hair is most likely very, very thirsty. Healthy hair has the perfect balance of both protein and moisture in it, so you make sure you restore both. A lack of moisture is what makes your hair that awful straw-like consistently or causes it to snap off when it gets to a certain length. 

However, you need protein for the moisture to latch on to, which is why it’s important to crack on with your high protein hair diet first. 

For a moisture injection I am a massive fan of Moroccan Oil products. I use the Treatment Oil after every wash, before blow drying (it’s also great as a serum on dry hair, but only use a teeny tiny bit!) and their Intense Hydrating and Restorative Hair Masks are glorious. I rotate between the two every few weeks.

Also look out for anything containing Argan Oil. There are lots of conditioners, oils and treatments around with it in these days and it works wonders. It’s gained massive popularity in recent years due to it’s natural antioxidants and the fact that it’s packed with vitamins. I currently have this Lee Stafford Argan Oil Deep Nourishing Treatment in my bathroom and it’s delicious. I use it between my shampoo and conditioner and leave it in for around 10 minutes while I soak in the tub.

Take Fish oil tablets

I was recommended Xtendlife Omega 3 DHA Fish Oil tablets by a friend and they literally transformed my hair in about six months. I’m not really one of those people that believes in or ever takes supplements but I truly think these things are pure magic!

The purity of the oil in these babies is a lot higher than a lot of other omega 3 products on the market and there’s no nasties like mercury in the water that these fishes are bred in. Honestly, if you buy just one thing after reading this article, make it these tablets!

Give your hair a break

I don’t mean you have to get rid of your beloved rainbow hair completely (I didn’t!) but just tread a little more gently. One of the things we did was to make my roots darker than the rest of my hair with either a darker pink (with the bottom of it staying pale so it was a nice ombre effect), or more recently with purple. If the roots of your hair are darker than the rest, you won’t need to bleach the regrowth as intensely, giving your new hair a fighting chance at staying healthy.

Wear clip in extensions

You can find some good natural hair extensions online and dye them to match your hair colour. I do have a few clipped in in the photos used to illustrate this article, but no-one can ever tell!

When we first started on my hair repair journey I would have to wear a full head of them, which is a right pain. However these days I just wear two single strips on either side, at the front, to add a bit more volume. It’s my little secret!

Don’t over-wash your hair!

I only wash my hair once or twice a week (ahh, the joys of working from home!) because the more you wash it, the more you will dry it out (hello, irony!) However if, unlike me, you can’t go a whole week with dirty hair, make sure you are using PLENTY of conditioner each time and, if at all possible, leaving it to dry naturally.

Throw away your straighteners!

Damaged hair and heat are not friends. These days I very rarely get the straighteners out favouring the more gentle (and volumising!) technique of my Babyliss Big Hair Spinning Brush.

I love this contraption! It smooths the hair and adds volume to the roots without tugging, pulling or emitting the same intense and damaging heat that you get from straighteners. I love, love, love it! You can see Ruth from A Model Recommends’ demo of it here. I actually bought it after watching her video!

The thing that you need most of all when repairing chemically damaged hair is patience. None of these products or techniques are going to work overnight, especially if your hair is in as bad a shape as mine was. It may take a little while before you start to notice a difference, but I promise all is not lost.

Look, if I can get my hair back from this then I know you can certainly fix yours too! Good luck!

    JMarie- I just read your comment and it broke my heart. I can relate. Us ladies put so much pressure on ourselves to look good and when the hairs go terribly wrong, it can be devastating.

  2. Corina

    After reading your article I have faith that my hair will grow!Am just concern because am taking orther medications due to my high blood pressure,thyroid ,cholesterol and pre diabetes. Do ypu suggest I should ask my doctor if it’s save for me to take the
    Omega 3 DHA Fish Oil?

    Hi Kat,
    I have some concerns about my hair. I have coloured my hair twice in my life. I am currently 27 and I coloured it once when I was 15 and once recently. I have not bleached my hair. I went to a salon known as AVEDA (since I heard they have natural plant based products) and got it coloured there. After colouring it, I started using REDKEN products (Shampoo and condition) for coloured hair. I also use the Lee Stafford Argan oil mask. Twice a month I also make homemade masks with avocado, eggs and olive oil and let it stay in my hair for about an hour before I wash it out. I too do not wash my hair more than 2-3 times a week and I rarely style it. For moisture, I use macademia oil products and I usually take a drop or two and dab it into my wet hair.

    I still feel like I am losing more hair after dying it than before. I usually have medium – thick hair and its very long. Is there something I am missing/ anything more you recommend? I am not planning on colouring my hair again. Just waiting for it to grow out and then I am going to cut it off. Right now I cannot afford to because I am getting married next year and I wanted my long hair for the wedding pictures.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks

  4. Im 15 and ive bleached my hair from roots to tips over the summer (first time) and im lossing so much hair ive dyed my hair in total of 8 times perhabs (no exhageration included) also ive done it myself . No salon imcluded .. couldnt afford it .

  5. charli

    Thankyou thankyou for writing this post! I have also been bleaching my hair since I was 16, mostly at home but with the occasional extortionate salon visit when it reallly needed some tlc… it has seen both better and worse days (at one point it could only be described as cotton wool which would break off in a gentle breeze!). I’ve now started using coconut oil on a regular basis and want desperately to grow it long (it’s currently very similar to your first photos). Your post has given me hope that it can be done and some great advice! So again, thank you :) p.s. I love your colour!

  6. I’ve been bleaching my hair platinum for the past 10 years. I goop loads of extra virgin, organic coconut oil from root to tip of my hair 2x per week to condition it. I also do not wash my hair more than twice a week. If it seems kind of oily, I will wet it in the shower and goop on conditioner. I’ve found that the L’Oreal drugstore moisturizing shampoos and conditioners are the best products to use for shower maintenance. (Even better than Kerastase). When I go to get my hair bleached at the salon, I cover it in coconut oil and let my stylist put bleach on top of that. It’s been the best beauty product ever.

    Hi I was looking for some advice. I have just had my hair bleached, and have tried to dye it but the dye won’t take! According to the Internet, this is because my hair is porous, but I can’t find any advice on how to heal it so it’s ready to be dyed. You have said the protein treatments are just for when the hair’s at a “stringy when wet phase”, but do you know what treatments are available for hair that’s too porous to be dyed? In urgent need of help as my hair looks awful, Amy.

  8. Jade

    I need some advice please I have natural medium brown hair and this year for the first time I decided to change ..

    Hi basically I’ve been highlighting my hair since age 16 (am 51 now) but at about age 40 I began adding long braids of cheap fake hair and always replacing them so in about 4 years they were never out longer than 1month…and being blonde I was bleaching my whole head to match (sometimes even doing the roots with the braids still in..it was actually clearer where the roots were! Not a good idea I know!!! A couple of times the odd whole braid would come off on my hands including my piece off hair it was attached too! ) when I eventually took them out for good I carried on bleaching the roots and only really had it trimmed a couple of times … Over the years that followed it got thinner and thinner breaking and never growing past a certain length! So I stupidly started using hair extensions DIY style again as money is tight for me. First I was gluing in the odd strands here and there more for volume! But them about 9 months ago I tried the wefts and glued them in all over and they were about 14″ in length. It looked lovely so I did it a few more times (still bleaching my roots…but never with the fake hair in this time) in the last 3 months I noticed it was getting even thinner and breaking off much more!! Now it’s so bad that I’m so ashamed of it that in a vicious circle where I can’t go without the extensions because it’s awful it’s thin and unevenly broken more on one side! And it’s so short At the top where it’s broken that it sticks up!!! I’m trying not to do the roots now but weakening because of the state of the roots adding to a horrible appearance! I know the glue is pulling it out too as no matter how careful or what glue remover I use I always see loads of my hAir still stuck to the wefts when I take out the extensions! I really can’t get it cut off as it would mean a crop and my face is quite fat! and obviously being 51 it’s not young looking anymore! The bleach I use is 40% vol and I have to leave it on for hour and half so as not to get ginger ( I have lots of red in my naturally mousy brown hair) also I have a very grey front which doesn’t notice too bad when bleaching but notices terribly against my dark roots which look very dark brown unlike my natural colour! My hair is so thin now that my head freezes on top and I’ve never had that before! I was wondering if I invested in a good wig and wore it will my own hair still be repairable underneath? I know also that at my age it’s probably going to thin out but do u think it will be possible to salvage?? I’m feeling like giving up! It’s the worst hair in the world and self inflicted I know! I’m at my wits end! I think the extensions are damaging it more thN the bleach even because it’s only since putting them in that it’s gotten this short and thin really. Although I’ve known it was in terrible condition due to bleach for a long time but never like this which has been about theast 9 months but in theast 3 months it’s got do terrible s of a sudden! Help please any advice will be so appreciated! Many thanks

    My hair is the exact same,I used to bleach it from home the peroxide bleach and my hair actually so bad, I have bald patches and really short patches it’s really embarrassing to go out and I have yo wear a full head of extensions to make it actually look ok, so where would I purchase them treatments from please?

  11. Cathy

    Hi, I owned a beauty supply store and wig shop for ten years and I might could answer some questions . A wig can wear away the sides of your hair really bad , you can wear a wig cap to cut down on some of that . If the sides of your hair arn’t too thin you could wear a clip in ponytail , which are really cute and if you get the right one it can cover half of your head. We as women do start losing hair in our 50’s , but if your losing it in clumps and not losing it even all over it is probably from hair abuse and it will more than likely grow back. If your hair is falling out please don’t use glue in your hair . They do have clip in hair extensions and will be heavy on breaking hair , but they arn’t as bad as the glue in type,

  13. nicole

    There are quite a few things on here I should definitely try. I never looked at damaged hair as fixable when it came to bleaching. I am naturally medium blond and have been slowly been stripping dark brown out of my hair for roughly 10 months, got got it to become light enough (almost white) to dye a silver color with wella 050. Now when the dye is washing out after a while im starting to look like an ash blond. My hair is pretty long right now and I’m considering chopping another few inches off if I do have to bleach again. All hair salons tell me my hair is pretty much done and beauty supply places keep telling me to buy more bleach. In dire need of some help before I give up on this color and keeping the length of my hair.

  14. nicole

    @lisa, have you tried the toning shampoo and conditioner to pull the yellow/ orange out instead of more bleaching?

  15. lucy

    hi everyone! i bleached my hair 3 years ago 7 times over 2 weeks with packet dies from asda and have suffered majorly ever since. however i have spent an enormous chunk of my wages on buying conditioning treatments and out of all the things i have tried the one that really helped my hair grow and look and feel better was ‘nioxin intensive treatment’ it is LITERALLY a miracle. i have tried all the obvious brands and have access to trade stores that supply hairdressers so i have tried all the good stuff. this really helped my hair and i buy it off ebay in the big 500ml bottles so definately try this! bit pricey but oh my goodness is it worth it. hope i have helped, lucy

  17. Jessica

    Hi I’m 21 and my hair is ruined, my hair was long and thickish and black, I fancied a change do I thought I would dye it red, so I put Jerome Russel on my hair and it’s all melted half of my hair on one side has snapped so short and I’ve got all bits all over the place, I’ve lost all my hair I just want to cry I don’t know what to do :'(

  18. NicoleR

    I know this isnt too relevant to what you were discussing in this article but i bleached my hair recently, ive gotten highlights in the past and this time i bleached my entire and more hair has been falling off whenever i shower. im going to grow out my natural hair again. will my hair continue to fall off like it is now once i grow out my natural hair? :(

  19. Holly

    I am in a similar boat to you.

    I stripped out 20 years of dying my hair as atomically red as possible and learning DIY bleaching, and yes I did get to Mother of Dragons blonde!

    My hair is dried and fried. Like you recount, is a scary tear-inducing moment when you realize what your hair once was and now the broken frizz condition it is in after damaging bleach.

    My scary moment was when I noticed breakage. I have one unintentional bang piece cause my hair just snapped. And a piece in the back also broke similarly.

    I came to similar realizations as you have in terms of care and feeding of fragile hair. And my hair also isn’t holding color as it once did.

    I have to blow dry anytime it is wet or else it is frizz city, but using oil products helps with this process.

    I use co-washes/Wen often, everyday I go to town with oil sprays and serums whenever I touch my hair in any form, wet or dry… (Some things in my roster now are: L’Oreal restorative dry oil, Freida oil serum, Semi Di Lino Diamond Extraordinary All in One Fluid, Clairol Professional Pro 4Plex Leave-in Balm). I use the fabulous Garnier damage eraser reconstructing butter as a regular conditioner, and Garnier split-end bandage when it gets that chewing gum feel and I need to comb it.

    So, thanks for sharing your story because it gives me hope and also commiseration!

    Took a little break from the bleaching and am letting roots come in and maintaining the bob cut. I haven’t given up on “creative” colors, but I have learned from my experiments.

    Going to check out the Big Hair Spinning brush and the Redken products (which I have seen mentioned in multiple places)!

    I’ve pinned and repinned this article so many times. Everytime I feel like I’ve ruined my hair it always calms me down. Thank you<3

  22. mia

    hi!
    this article helped a lot!
    i want to platinum-leach my black dyed hair. i dyed it black about 3 months ago and the colour is starting to fade. i have very thick hair (i’m all italian) so i was wondering: since the colour is fading, is it safe to bleach my hair? once again it’s super thick and long, i don’t want it to fall out!

  23. Laura

    I have an issue with the back of my hair. It looks like it’s thinning out around the part that naturally swirls. However I can still see hair their so I don’t think I’m losing any hair and I don’t notice many hairs that come out when I comb my hair. I did bleach my own hair back in november sometime and it did get on my scalp. I rinsed it out once I felt a slight burning sensation but I’m wondering if that did damage to my hair. Plus my whole scalp looks shiny. I’m going to invest in Biotin and the omega 3 fish oil. I’m just hoping I’m not actually going bald there and it’s just an issue that the bleach made my hair thinner and it’ll take time for it to grow normal again. If anyone has any tips I would appreciate the help. It’s making me very self-conscious. I have a pixie cut so I’m trying to style it where you can’t see that area for now.

  24. Hi

    I am a salon owner, having 20 years hairdressing experience.
    My advice to you all is that you should never bleach your own hair at home! Unless you have the knowledge, what ingredients are in these products and what they actually do to your hair you shouldn’t be using them.
    From a hairdressers point of view, I have clients that have a full head bleach but once that hair starts to show signs of damage its gone!
    Hair that is bleached does not have to feel like chewing gum, if your having your hair bleached professionally (this way it is not overlapped), trimmed regularly & using good products like Redken it needn’t feel like this.
    If your hair is dark and you are trying to bleach it out, good luck to you i would say you won’t have much hair left by the time you get there if you get there. There is so much to think of when trying to strip out artificial hair colour.
    Also when your hair is bleached and you want to colour over it, you need to use a temporary colour instead of a permanent as these have bigger molecules which sit in the damaged cuticle better.
    yellow/ orange hair cannot be toned using a toner or silver shampoo! Toners and silver shampoos only work when the hair is to the lightest level. If your at a bright yellow you’ve still got at least 2 shades to go (that’s a lot).
    If your hair is felling like chewing gum, my advice is to have it cut. When your hair starts to break it will keep breaking up the hair shaft. If you really won’t have it cut then whilst using your treatments (this is a must), wrap your hair with treatment on in a warm towel or plastic cap for 15 minutes, the heat will allow the conditioners to penetrate deeper into the cuticle.

    Hope this helps

    Hi bleach my hair and now it really thin and i can see. My scalp in scared i want to know if i can do something about it

  26. Mine was exactly the same lol I looked like a scarecrow and cried every time I had to wash it because I knew even more would break away.
    I finally decided enough was enough so I put a dark colour on and it went from bad to worse my hair was totally ruined and green…. So my mum chopped it all off I was and still am gutted. But thankfully I found an amazing product called juice plus which helps hair grow!! It’s never looked or felt better (condition) lol

  27. Mariana B.

    Oh man. So there’s hope for my sad, fried, teal mess? I went to a stylist on a friend’s recommendation. I expected that she would recommend bleaching over the course of several sessions.

    But no. She went ahead and did the whole thing in 5 hours. I’ve never colored my hair before, so I assumed it was normal when the damn foils started melting and dripping on the smock. She didn’t seem panicked or anything. Just washed my hair out and went on her merry way.

    Now my hair is oddly elastic when it’s wet and super frizzy and fluffy when it’s dry. And I want to cry. I don’t know that I have the patience to try to nurse it back to health, so I may just bite the bullet and get an undercut-pixie.

  28. Shelly

    Hi! Your article was very helpful! My daughter is 15 and bleaches her hair, and it has gotten all dry and coarse – I’ve had my hair all kinds of colors, but avoided bleach because my hair is so dark I always over-did it. My daughters hair used to be pink and she wants to bleach it platinum/white, but because her hair is so damaged (and if she bleaches it again and it all falls out, I’d feel responsible) I have resisted letting her. Any tips/product suggestions for bleaching at home? Thanks!

  29. Jessica

    I am really picky about what I use on my hair since many products are full of chemicals that always seem to dry out my hair. However, when I used Nutress Hair protein pack treatment for colored hair, my hair was transformed and noticeably healthier than before. My hair is fine but super wavy and thick. After blow styling, it was insanely soft and shiny. The product itself is light and did not weigh down my hair. I also use their instant conditioner about once a week and my hair would feel so silky and soft. I color my hair about every 5 weeks and used this as a deep conditioner. I am very pleased with Nutress Hair products. I definitely recommend them if you’ve experienced damage from a color treatment.

    Hi there, my name is Irene and i write from Sweden. This morning I was surfing the net searching for a solution to my poor poor hair. Yes. 1 year ago i started dying it to have it orange. i mean seriously orange. No one else in town has this hair and it became my trademark.
    So 1 month ago, after my usual procedure “bleach and color” i rinsed the hair and i got half scalp emptyed. Just like that. All of a sudden.
    I always had thick and very tight hair… but not anymore. I don’t wash it too often cuz all red/orange colors are a bitch. They lose intensity after 1 shampoo.
    Now, seen that my tops are crispy and fried like your ines in the first pictures I decided to cut it short (i have now a pretty basic pulp fictiob Mia Wallace haircut, shoulder length) I want a Twiggy hair.
    Then i decided to use a less agressive peroxide to develope my color (i use to use 9% both to blen with blue bleaching powder and my color) so i will bleach at 9% and color at 3%. So i will try to give it a break like that. I am no fan of darker roots. I like the “tecnicolor” plastic effects.
    Then i will definately start using coconut oil (easy to find in food stores here, and ways cheaper than any Argan or Moroccan oil hairproduct).
    Your guide has been helpful and cheered me up. I was desperated when searching for a solution and flt so stupid, like “yeah, u wanted to have cool hair and now u pay the price for it”… but u made me feel less lonely.
    oh and also, nice tatoos! I am also a big fan of tatoos and i have my arms “printed”. Ur tatoos suits u very nicely.
    Thank you so much for cheering me up! Both you writing the article and the other girls for commenting and making me notice that yes, we are many and we put A LOT of effort in ourselves.
