Product review: BLEACH London – Reincarnation Mask
For hair dye to work, ammonia literally lifts up your hair cuticle…
Scroll down to just read my review on this product
My current hair condition: I have been dying my hair for approximately 2 years, this has included normal hair dye and bleach. I have recently had a full head of bleach foils through my hair (64 exactly) – therefore making me want to treat my hair extra nicely at home.
Bleach, what it does to your hair: Bleaching your hair will remove the natural pigment and make hair more porous, allowing more dye to penetrate the hair shaft. Bleaching usually takes place while wanting to dye your hair from a darker to lighter shade. The decision to bleach your hair is an important one. Bleach is made of peroxides, ammonias, and lightening agents that remove the pigment melanin from the hair shaft by oxidative destruction.
Hair dye: For hair dye to work, ammonia literally lifts up your hair cuticle…and peroxide destroys your current colour
DON’T LET THIS STOP YOU GETTING YOUR HAIR COLOURED!
You can still have long – healthy looking hair, while still dying it! Simply:
- Do not dye your hair too frequently, leave up to 6-8 weeks before you next dye it
- Cut down on extra heat (straighteners, curlers)
- When you do use heat, use heat protectant!
- Condition the ends of your hair – try a hair mask!
*This review is totally my own opinion and the product was bought with my own money*
“Resurrect and hydrate thirsty, bleached or coloured hair with this repairing and moisturising hair mask. Enriched with sunflower seed extract and micro wheat proteins to give great shine, strengthen colour vibrancy and help reduce colour fade”
I am a lover for hair masks, I have tried many before including Tresemme and Dove – however this one is my favourite!
How to use: I use this hair mask once a week (or just when my hair feels dry and in need of some TLC). After shampooing my hair and rinsing out all the suds, I squeeze the hair mask onto my hand, smoothing it into my lower half of my hair. I do not go near the roots as my hair would get greasy quickly (you do not need to apply much of the mask, it all depends on the thickness and length of your hair). I then comb through my hair, and massage the ends. I leave it there for around 10 minutes before rinsing through with warm water.
