Our 15 Best Products To Help You Care For Bleached Hair At Home

If there’s one thing I know from experience, it’s that bleaching your hair is no small endeavor. As a freshman in high school, I confidently purchased box bleach, thinking I could change my dark brown hair to a fun pink and match the cool vibes of my peers. While I was going for the modern-day equivalent of E-Girl hair, the results were nothing short of a disaster. 

Due to my amatuer bleach job, my hair looked and felt dry and straw-like for the first two years of high school. The ends of my hair were broken and split, and touching my strands felt like putting your whole hand in a haystack. The damage felt catastrophic. 

Since most of my friends in high school DIY’d their vibrant hair colors, I didn’t think to get my hair done professionally, nor did I know how to protect and maintain my strands from my bleach bathroom session. Now, after researching and consulting salon professionals, I know what a mane needs after a bleach session or two.

What is the best shampoo for bleached hair?

The best shampoo depends on your hair type. Understanding what your hair needs makes finding the right shampoo easier. In general, anti-breakage, repairing, and hydrating shampoos are ideal for bleached hair. Having the right shampoo is important because it preps your hair for the rest of your hair care routine.

How do you keep bleached hair healthy?

If you want to keep your bleached hair healthy, you’ll need to amp up your at-home hair care routine. You can use hair masks, oils, and shampoos and conditioners formulated to add moisture and repair the look and feel of your bleached strands. You should also plan to see a stylist regularly to keep split ends at bay.

Does bleached hair need purple shampoo?

Any salon blonde looking to prevent brass should have a purple shampoo in their routine. The purple pigments help to keep your blonde look cooler in tone and prevent brass. Purple shampoo isn’t meant to replace your color safe shampoo, but rather be used as a tool once a week to maintain your color.
