Bleaching Can Cause Grave Damage To Hair. Here's What Happens And Ways To Limit Damage

Hair is the most attractive part of our bodies. Like the texture of our skin cannot be changed after using certain skincare products, after bleaching there is no chance that our hair would grow in a different color. Hair is made up of keratin, which at its basic form is nothing but DNA. Whatever your stylist does to your hair, DNA structure cannot be changed. When one applies a hair color or uses bleach over the hair to get an attractive blonde it is an external addition, from the very top to the scalp. Hair growth takes place from the scalp and as nothing is done to the cells, hairs would grow in the natural texture. Though one can't ignore the fact that bleaching deteriorates one's hair quality exponentially. Here we have for you a few tips and tricks so that you can pamper your hairs even after a bleaching treatment.
