As a stylist, I don’t recommend you bleach your hair again after a week.
I’ll explain why.
Bleaching is a very aggressive process.
Let’s take an example that has nothing to do with hair.
Let’s suppose that you decide to run a 42-kilometer marathon. To run the marathon, you prepare for several months and train every day.
You also adjust your habits and your diet to the hours of rest. The long-awaited day arrives, and you run the marathon. When you cross the finish line, you are moved to tears by your achievement, even though you were not the winner.
Now, would you be able to run a second marathon after a week to try to reach the finish line first?
I think your answer will be no. It would be really crazy.
Well, that’s the same you want to do to your hair. Bleaching your hair again after a week is like running two marathons in one week. It’s really crazy.
You’ll wear down your hair. Once your hair starts to break, there’s no turning back: you’ll have to cut it to remove all the damaged parts.
So, I insist.

It’s easy to use. You only need to replace your usual shampoo with the toning shampoo for three to five minutes according to the brand you choose.
But, if you’re desperate and want to accelerate the process, you can use the shampoo as a color mask ONLY ONCE.
- Dampen your hair slightly. Don’t let it drip.
- Apply a large amount of shampoo to your entire mane.
- Massage your hair to make sure you cover every inch with shampoo.
- Leave it on for 10 minutes.
- Rinse your hair with cold water until it runs clean.
To keep your hair blonde without unwanted shades, use the toning shampoo twice a week.
If you haven’t achieved the blonde you want, you should wait three weeks to bleach your hair again
But before bleaching your hair again, you should repair it. Remember that bleaching takes away moisture and nutrients from your hair, especially if you bleached your hair on your own.

Did you know that bleaching leaves your hair extremely porous? This is partly good news because it’ll soak up all the nourishing and moisturizing treatments like a sponge.
Protein nourishes your hair: :
Many masks and balms contain these proteins. You can apply them twice a week and leave them on for 20 minutes.
To moisturize your hair, you need moisturizing agents: :
- Coconut oil
- Linseed oil
- Argan oil
- Rose oil [/your_list]
These oils will also nourish your hair by providing moisture. You can use them as masks three times a week for 20 minutes.
You should use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners because sulfates are detergents that dehydrate your hair. And that's exactly what you should avoid in your bleached hair.
Maintain this moisturizing and nourishing routine for three weeks.
If your hair is healthier after a week, (it isn't coarse or dry and has no frizz) you can bleach it again.
I don't recommend you bleach your hair again after one week.
Bleaching is done at least every three weeks to avoid irreversible damage to the hair. During those three weeks, do intensive nourishing treatments.
This is the only way to prepare your hair for the marathon that awaits it and win!
