So I recently just gave my daughter highlights for her fifteenth birthday a couple weeks ago, and I’ve been noticing severe breakage occurring from the bleach. Strands keep coming out whenever you run your fingers through it, which I clearly know, isn’t normal. We managed to keep it under control until wash day, but I couldn’t help but think of other ways to prevent this from happening in the future?

One tip I did find was to reduce any hair stressors (basically reduce heat) by not straightening, curling, etc. to reduce any further breakage from occurring.

Continue to get regular protein treatments. Preferably every week at the most. Protein treatments are designed for strengthening your hair; so to decrease any further damage, try doing this on a weekly basis.

Always deep condition. Deep conditioning moisturizes your hair and if it’s constantly moisturized and conditioned well, breakage tends to happen less.

Oil gently. Try and use oil before you go to bed and tie it down with a scarf of some sort to seal in any moisture. I would suggest using a moisturizing product of your choice and then try the oil to truly get your hair in a moisturized state.

Use satin pillowcases. I would assume most people tend to do this on a daily basis, but for some who don’t, then it might be best to switch soon since that may be a contributing factor to some problems you had or may be experiencing.

Stay away from chemical treatments. Don’t try relaxers or any other chemical products/treatments for a while until your hair is back at its full strength.
