Is It Safe to Bleach My Hair Twice In A Day?
We acknowledge that a bleach job might go wrong, or you might change your mind about the results after using a toner, but what we do not support is bleaching your hair twice a day. Hair bleach contains chemicals and constantly exposing your hair to chemical ingredients is not advisable for several reasons.
Bleaching your hair twice in one day could result in unwanted scalp irritations. It is likely to leave your scalp feeling itchy. It could also result in scalp burns from the repeated exposure of your hair to harmful chemicals in such a short period.
Asides from getting scalp irritation, you are sure to end up with dull and dry hair after the process has been completed. The chemicals in hair bleach can strip your hair of moisture and its natural oils which in turn leads to dry, frizzy, and rough hair.
Anything that causes your hair to lose moisture will drastically affect the growth of your hair until the damage is reversed.
If you bleach your hair twice a day, you risk experiencing hair shedding or breakage as well. This hair breakage will be in relatively large amounts, that’s how dangerous it is to expose your hair to bleach twice in the same day.
Hair breakage such as this is not easy to remedy, it would take a lot of organic hair products, constant care, and patience. You can easily avoid going through this by not bleaching your hair twice in one day.
Bleaching your hair twice a day is not a risk worth taking, the damages it could cause to your hair are not to be taken lightly if you are concerned about maintaining healthy hair.
The initial process of bleaching your hair requires moisturizing products to be used to replace the moisture that would be lost during the process, this is to protect your hair from any sort of damage.
By repeating the bleaching process on the same day, your hair will be exposed to more chemicals than it has the strength to withstand, and it will get damaged instead without you getting your desired results.
