I'm bleaching my hair at the salon tomorrow and, considering we all have EDs here, I need your best tips on how to take care of it!

Aphogee protein treatment. trust me, that stuff is a life saver. follow the directions exactly. It smells HORRIBLE but you only have to do it once every few months, and believe me it saves those bleached strands. Plus get yourself some good toner (find out the tone you want first), and get some good purple shampoo :wub:

I really want to try this as I heard it is so good but I am a bit scared reading it goes hard on your hair? Is it easy to use?

Don’t be scared, it starts out as pure liquid and you just comb it through your hair (just do it quickly), then you use a hair dryer and dry until it hardens, then rinse with their special conditioner. Just follow the directions and you’ll be fine 😊

With purple shampoo be careful you don't leave it on too long. I did once and ended up with a pale lilac tint to my hair. At that point my hair was very light as I had been bleaching it for close to a decade.

I've had bleach blonde hair for close to a decade, doing it myself.

 

Olaplex is a great shout, ask your hairdresser if they can use olaplex/brazillian bond strengthener treatment during the processing and afterwards. This will prevent most of the damage (I do my own hair as I can't afford it, but this stuff is LEGIT and I wish they did home products)

Afterwards, a good quality keratin masque for regular use and (if you can afford it) salon quality conditioner for daily conditioning. I use a fairly cheap keratin masque off amazon, by Kallos. 

 

Don't brush your hair if it's tatty/knotty as this will cause breakage. Instead wash your hair, use conditioner and comb your hair through whilst the conditioner is on. 

 

Use purple shampoo (touch of silver or fudge clean violet are the best I've found) in order to control brassiness and keep your ashy tones. 

 

Avoid heat treatments like drying, straightening and curling as much as you can.

I've been bleaching for about 10 years, so here are some tips:

~ use olaplex no.3, once a month, through the night before washing it off in the morning (one bottle lasts me for about 4 times)

~ my hair wont look nice if I dont comb it while its still wet, so i use a brush for wet hair 

~ always use conditioner (best one I used was from Shiseido but I usually use Herbal Essences)
~ Shampoo shouldnt have any silicons
~ dont rub your hair when you towel dry
~ dont sleep with wet hair
~ always use hair oils or similar products after you wash your hair (be sure not to wash it out). I personally use Primrose and Mythic Oil from L'Oreal Proffessionel.. 
~ if you use purple shampoo, make sure to use a good brand and spread it evenly, so your hair doesnt become patchy.  
~ be careful when you are bleaching. It will hurt a bit (not like hurt-hurt but you know tingle a bit?). but if its really painful be sure to ask your hairdresser to check on your hair. (got a strand of my hair burned off once in Asia) 
~  Always check where you will bleach your hair and if they have experience with bleaching your type of hair.

Olaplex and a protein treatment! The Aphogee ones are good if you have access to Sally Beauty.
