How I Saved My Hair (After Bleaching It To Death)

If you’re a regular subscriber you’ll have seen that last summer I decided to dye (well bleach) my hair platinum blonde. So after two rounds of bleaching, deciding I didn’t like it then dying my hair back brown 3 times to get the right shade – it’s safe to say my hair took a beating. So this post is just a few tips and tricks to help you achieve healthier hair. 


  • COCONUT OIL – my little saviour. I always feel and see so much of a difference in my hair after leaving it in coconut oil over night, I try to do it once every week. Make sure to put a towel over your pillow otherwise the oil will soak into your pillowcase.


  • Using a shampoo and conditioner with no sulfates. If you use a shampoo with sulfates then it removes hair dye from your hair more than a shampoo without sulfates. So as well as not dying your hair as often, it’s more gentle on your hair than any other shampoo/ conditioner would be.


  • Tangle Teezer, this brush makes sure to get rid of knots without ripping out your hair. Giving you less split ends. Brushing your hair doesn’t have to be a painful experience!
  • Don’t wash your hair every day, it dries out your hair causing it to be limp and damage easily. The Batiste dry shampoo is the perfect solution.
  • Get your hair cut regularly now I’m not saying you need two inches off every 6 weeks, but it’s recommended that you should get a trim every 6 weeks. This is so your hair can grow. Otherwise split ends break off constantly, causing your hair to stay at the same length even though it is growing.


I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading. Today is the day I’m getting my hair done (don’t worry I’ll do a post about it), I fancied a change. What hair tips do you recommend?

    These tips are great. I absolutely love using coconut oil in my hair as well as a skin moisturizer in the winter! It’s great for so many things. I didn’t know about sulphates stripping your hair dye, Thankfully I use all natural shampoo, but it’s good to know! Thanks!

    Great tips! I love the Vatika Coconut Oil. I’ve never tried a dry shampoo– I’ll have to look for that– I don’t wash my hair too often so it would be nice to have something to refresh it.

    Great tips! I’ve been slowly processing my hair, but taking it very easy on the bleach to not over dry & damage.
