– It damages your hair: Once you bleach your hair, your hair is all the more susceptible to damage. Excess oil, wind, dirt, harmful UV rays, etc can make the hair very frizzy and dull. You could also face several issues like hair fall, split ends etc. In the process, even hair growth slows down or stops all at once.
– Hair fails to maintain moisture levels: When you bleach your hair, your hair loses its moisture and it then becomes difficult to maintain the protein balance in it too. Your hair, thus, becomes prone to damage as well as breakage. Bleaching your hair means using strong chemicals on your otherwise sensitive hair.
– It could hurt the scalp: You can end up feeling a burning sensation on your scalp while you’re getting the colour done. The burning sensation can also last for a while after the colouring is done. This is all due to the strong chemicals that are present in the bleaching products.
– It dries up your hair: Bleaching is done by oxidation on your hair. This process can end up making your hair extremely dry and lifeless. So when you think you are getting your hair colours for it to look better, it could actually turn up to look dull and boring.
– Bleaching needs high maintenance: When you bleach your hair, you have to be ready with investing in high maintenance products. If you can’t do that, your hair will suffer quite a lot. You might end up facing hair fall, breakage, dull hair, etc. Once you bleach your hair, make sure you are ready to maintain it properly.
– Discoloured hair: One major side effect of colouring your hair is that you may experience discoloured hair. This could look odd and makes your hair look quite lifeless. You are then more prone to getting discoloured hair if you do the bleaching at home and if you couldn’t apply the colouring agents in the right proportions.
