Let’s face it ladies, beautiful hair is just another of the hundreds of manipulation tactics hidden up our sleeves. It gets tossed, tucked, flipped, or heaven forbid falls over your left eye making the most manly of men sink to his knees. It doesn’t matter if you’re known for your long locks, or a short pixie that would make Pink jealous, gorgeous silky hair is a woman’s greatest tool in her tool shed.
But like a man’s favorite hammer, we too abuse our hair. We dry it, brush it, iron it, and to really put the nail in the coffin, we bleach it, taking it from a silky, gorgeous state, to dry and brittle.
We have the low down on the best deep conditioners for bleached hair, which include hair masks, to get those locks shiny and silky again.
Our Top 5 Deep Conditioners
Your last attempt to add even more blonde streaks to your gorgeous mane did not go unnoticed, but unfortunately not in the way you had hoped. For all you ladies with dry, over heated and bleached hair who have maybe gone a few months too long without a trim — allow us to introduce your new hair defense. Damaged, bleached hair, meet deep conditioner. We know the two of you will be a perfect match.
You simply use them after regular conditioning once – two times per week.
- apply product so that it covers your hair entirely
- put on a shower cap while you’re finishing up your shower (about 10 minutes)
- allow the deep conditioner to work it’s spell, and once again, beautiful, shiny, healthy, drop him to his knees hair
