: Does putting bleached streaks in your hair really damage it?
: A lot of women seem to carry it off without much of a problem, if you condition regularly Iím not sure itís that bad a deal? Right now Iím 8 months into growing it out again and last time around I must have bleached it around 5 times and things seemed okay.
: Any thoughts?
Earlier this summer I had some highlights put into my hair (the first time I've attempted any dying or highlighting). I was concerned about the damage from both bleaching and then dying the highlights in... but frankly, nothing notable has changed in my hair texture or softness. Though I am a stickler for regular washing, conditioning, and good products and my highlights were put in with foils, so not too excessive of bleaching.
The concern I have moving forward is deciding if I want to add/update my highlights now that I have more growth. Or I could all over dye the highlights out to my natural color (or even some shade near-natural). Or just let them grow out... Decisions, decisions.
