Anyone who’s ever tried to dye or bleach their hair at home knows how hard it is to get a good result. Here are some tips and tricks to keep your hair from getting damaged.
In ads for hair care products – especially hair dye ads – models are wearing dyed and bleached manes. They look beautiful, bright and with volume. But is it possible to obtain the same result if you do the treatment at home? Yes and no.
Often, when we use these types of treatments, we forget that the natural color and tone of our hair, as well as our hair type, play a very important role in the final result. But, unfortunately, we often realize this when we have already applied the treatment and, unfortunately, it is too late. Do you know what are the tricks to dye your hair at home and be satisfied with the result? Read on.
The health of your hair? A Decisive Factor
By proxy, you can bleach your hair regardless of your hair type and color. However, there are some cases where this is not the most recommended idea. In this way, whether or not to bleach your hair depends mainly on the structure of your hair. In other words, if you have already applied other harmful treatments to your hair, such as a previous or permanent bleaching, it is best to avoid it. And that’s because in previously treated hair, the color is ingrained at a very deep level, so to bleach it again, it would have to be damaged at that deep level. The result? The strands of hair, which are very fragile, can break.
Let’s make no mistake. The best way to dye and bleach our hair is in the hands of a professional. If this is the case, it is likely that he will advise us that in order for our hair to absorb the color we are looking for, we should bleach it before dyeing. This is the best method as long as our hair has not been bleached beforehand. After this treatment, your hair will be able to absorb the color of any dye. Of course, it is recommended that once the treatment is completed, intense hydration is performed. Otherwise, the hair may appear weak, dull and too fragile.
How do we dye our hair at home?
For anyone who wants to venture to bleach their hair at home, we know which products to use and the steps to follow. First, you need to “wash” your hair. How? With a bleach.

Once you have whitened your hair and it has turned white, it will be able to absorb the color of any dye. If you’ve been dreaming of having pink, purple, green, blue or gray hair, now’s the time. You can show off the hair you want!
