Hair dyeing

ZayZay Recovering🥀LondonCommunity Champion Posts: 3,182 Boards Guru
So I got my hair coloured for the first time back in July this year with this:

My natural hair colour is black, and half of my hair is with this colour (I've done an ombre style). I don't want the colour to ever touch my roots. My hair had to get bleached first so that the exact colour would show up on my hair.

I want to get my hair redyed with this colour (this time with a balayage style):

I want this done before my 18th birthday, which is in three months, so there is a lot of time. And I'll have to get it bleached again.

But right now I want to focus on my hair's health. I am going to get a haircut soon so that some damage is gone and so that my hair can get rid of the split ends and so that it can grow.
I am just worried about getting my hair bleached again, because I already bleached it five months ago. How long does it take for bleached hair to recover? Is it okay if I bleach it again in three months? How often can you bleach your hair?

    Honestly, it can take quite a while for bleached hair to recover!

    A hairdresser would be able to give you a more precise estimation :)

    My hair took years to recover after being bleached but that was hairdresser style bleach <3

    Yh I'll prolly ask my best friend's mum (she's the one who dyed my hair), I'm sure she would know as she studied hair and beauty in her college.

    That sounds like a great plan @zaynab_5 :)

    I'm sure she'll have some useful knowledge! :)

    Hey @Zay as someone who has dyed their hair alot (not always successfully :D ) the best thing I recommend for bleached hair is a lot of love and conditioning treatments. Try not to use heat on it too often, and if possible do a hair mask/ deep conditioning maybe one a week/ fortnight until you get it done again.

    Sounds super exciting and what a lovely idea for your 18th!

    @Emma_ thank you for the recommendation :)
    Do you mind giving out what hair mask should I use?

    Hey @Zay if I'm honest I normally buy what is on sale :p but I really love the brand Aussie, they have some great products including a deep conditioner (it's in a tub) that you can either use a normal conditioner or leave it on for 20 minutes and it acts as a hair mask - smells amazing too!
