Aw you’re gonna pop your virgin hair cherry! (I savor that horrible wording so much.) I’ve been dealing with bleached hair for about 7 years now so you’ve certainly come to the right place. Here are my selections for you.
- One of my favorite hair colorists in NYC actually recommends you using straight up cholesterol on your hair rather than more expensive salon masks. It’s pretty great, I’ve tried it. It’s also super affordable. Queen Helene sells it for $3.99 for a big tub.
- Kerastase hair masks are pricey but….I honestly love them so much, and they truly are phenomenal. They’ve really saved my hair from bleach hell.
- But on the more affordable side, Neutrogena has deep conditioners I’ve tried and really liked. I went through 2 tubs of this one before I got bored.
- After deep conditioning, you might still want to use a leave-in conditioner or hair serum. I like the Dove leave-in serum a lot.
Let me know if you have any more questions! Good luck bleaching.
