You bleached your hair because you love blonde hair, but now you see that your hair has become very damaged. What can you do? You want to stay blonde, but you don’t want to go bald either, do you? So how can you repair hair damaged by discoloration?
This time we will talk about how to repair hair burned by discoloration…
Why do we bleach our hair
You see, radically changing the color of our hair with the use of dyes is very tempting nowadays.
Think about it. Whether out of curiosity, trends or even fashion hobby, we’ve all wanted to experiment with our hair color more than once.
In fact, this shouldn’t be problematic at all. After all, wearing blonde hair has been the pride of many artists and magazine models.
However, we must not forget the fact that these products alter the chemical balance of our hair.
Although we love to look blonde, it must be recognized that the use of dyes has multiple long-term consequences, particularly if bleaching agents are used to remove the natural color prior to the use of the dye.
Women who want to “get out of the dark side” will have noticed that no dye will give them the colour they want without first discolouring it, and this is where the most serious problems come in.
If the use of dye damages the hair, the discoloration doubly worsens things.
Among the adverse effects of this duo, we can find:
Lift the capillary cuticle
Mistreat and dull hair color
Dry and weaken the tips
If monoethanolamine and hydrogen peroxide concentrations are very high, they cause hair loss.

The good news is that just as there are consequences and bad results, there are also several methods at your fingertips that make it possible to recover from the negative effects of the use of bleaches and dyes.
So, if your hair is burned from discoloration and you want to change, pay close attention.
It is time to get down to work and work to recover what has been lost.

Additional tips for repairing hair damaged by discoloration
In addition to applying the treatments already mentioned, you can do much more to recover the health of your hair.
We recommend using a good repair shampoo. You can ask your stylist for advice on choosing the right shampoo for your hair’s condition.
From experience I can recommend Sebastian’s Penetraitt shampoo. Due to a discoloration (and some other procedure) my hair was left in a painful, useless state. Or so I thought, until I started using this wonderful shampoo. You saved my hair, and for that I’ll always be grateful. It is a shampoo created to repair hair extremely damaged by chemicals.
Also, if your hair ends are burned and opened by discoloration, I’m sorry to have to tell you that it’s best to cut what’s damaged. This will help to improve the appearance of the hair and not extend the damage even further. But don’t worry, you don’t have to condemn yourself to short hair if you don’t want to.

Extensions are the solution. With them you can keep your hair as long as you want. In addition you will look a very pretty mane, because your hair will be mixed with the hair extensions and will look, as a whole, healthy and with all the volume you want. The hair curtains give a very attractive and elegant volume. Ideally, you should choose 100% human hair extensions, remy, no mixtures. Or maybe you prefer virgin hair, such as natural Indian hair , so that you can bleach it yourself. It is the most natural looking, does not tangle and is very durable.
