Every time I film one of these I realise I haven’t really been clear about my ‘damage’. My hair is bleached and so obviously is damaged to a degree anyway but the main issue I have is breakage I suffered the last time I had a full head of bleach. This was a clean break which is now growing, my hair isn’t brittle or weak I’m just trying to nourish it as much as possible in the hope it will grow quickly.
Another issue I had was hormonal, I shed a lot of hair over a period of around 8 weeks that some of the products mentioned did help slow however this has now settled. I’m now left with relatively soft, healthy (for bleached) hair that is thin because of the damaged sections. When I talk about the ‘breakage slowing down’ I’m really refering to the hair shedding which was previously coming out in clumps in the shower but is now back to normal. I’m considering extensions to fill out those sparse areas while it grows, I’m not concerned about tension/traction damage as I’m not looking for much length and I have at least a couple of inches of health, undamaged roots to adhere them to.
I felt I needed to add some extra info as a recent instagram post sparked a lot of ‘advice’ such as ‘leave your hair alone’, ‘dye it dark and cut it’, ‘why not just use clip ins, they won’t damage your hair’ – the list goes on.. My hair isn’t snapping off, it’s cool! besides which if it all falls out that would be a great video, wouldn’t it? *ugly cry*
