Saving my hair after it was damaged by bleaching

I mentioned in my previous post that ruining my hair and scalp is something that I didn’t want to do.

Unfortunately I was feeling rather adventurous this week and I did exactly that.

I’ve been thinking to lighten my hair for the past 2 weeks now because I’m planning to henna my hair again. My hair is growing rather fast and so I can see the roots of my white hair.

I checked YouTube for videos on how to do that and also recipes via internet articles.

Lightening the colour of hair is essentially the same as bleaching the hair.

Using an oxidising agent on the hair so it can break down the coloured pigments of the hair, leaving the hair colour lighter.

I tried it and it was a disaster for me.

My hair became extremely dry, brittle and coarse. My hair was badly damaged, my ear and scalp was burnt and my whole head smells like bleach even after I washed with shampoo and conditioner. When I was combing my hair, I could hear this weird sound coming from my hair!

I panicked when I realized that the result didn’t turn out as I had hoped.

I quickly applied the body oil that I had use before onto my scalp and hair and an hour later I noticed there was very little change as if the body oil wasn’t enough to fix my hair.

Fortunately, I had HHB’s (Hair Henna Brunei) moisturising hair oil delivered home the next day and I went for it.

First thing that I did was I cleansed my scalp and hair with clarifying shampoo. I wanted to get rid of any left over chemicals from the bleach off my head. After I was done, I towel dry my hair.

Then I apply HHB’s moisturising hair oil, gently massage the oil onto my scalp and once that was done, I massage the oil onto my hair.

Since I did this in the evening, I decided to sleep with it.

The HHB’s moisturising hair oil is rather thick unlike the body oil and so I was informed best to cover my head with shower cap if I was going to sleep with it.

And so I slept with my hair soaked with the HHB’s moisturising hair oil in a shower cap.

The next morning, I washed my hair with shampoo and conditioner.

Originally I planned to just shampoo my hair without conditioner but after I was done with shampooing my hair, I could still feel the heaviness of the oil weighing on my hair and so I conditioned my hair.

It was after I washed the conditioner off my hair that I could feel my hair was so freaking soft! I don’t ever recall my hair was ever that soft in my life!

I towel dry my hair afterwards. My hair felt so silky and so so smooth (Thank God!!!)

I was just so relieved that I could save my hair.

I’ve got HHB’s moisturising hair oil to thank for my soft and also silky hair!

Was bleaching my hair during the week day and my hair was ruined because of it! The damaged done was insane! My hair became extremely dry, they felt pretty much like straw, my ear and scalp was burnt and my whole head smells like bleach! Even after washing with shampoo and conditioner. I got panicked. I applied the usual hair oil that I've been using and it wasn't enough to fix my hair. So I turned to @hairhennabrunei and used their moisturising hair oil last night and really hoping it could help my hair. This morning I shampooed and conditioned my hair and to my surprise, my hair was a lot softer and felt silkier than before. I'm so freaking relief! Love the feel of my new hair and will be using it to restore my hair. Won't be bleaching my hair for a while now. Owh pictures were taken using natural lighting and no filters. #hairhennabrunei #moisturisinghairoil
