- If your hair falls out after dyeing it blonde, it’s probably bleached and weakened by the process.
- This is because your hair has lost nutrients, minerals, and vitamins, which weakened and thinned it out.
- To stop hair loss, you should apply keratin repairing treatments and some more specific ones like OLAPLEX. I’ll give you more details later.

Do you notice that your hair falls out after dyeing it blonde?
First, stay calm. I know it sounds easy, but unfortunately, it’s the beginning of the road you’ll have to travel.
First, stay calm.
Then, be patient.
Although you’ll be able to stop hair loss, the solutions aren’t magic.
What I mean is that hair loss doesn’t stop overnight.
I empathize with you.
I understand you, and that’s why I’ll tell you everything you can do to stop hair loss after dyeing your hair blonde.
I think hair loss is one of the biggest fears women face.
When we untangle our hair and discover that hair strands are trapped in the brush, a sudden terror runs through our body.
It’s almost a cultural thing. Culturally, women with long, healthy hair have represented feminine beauty.
Think Viking Valkyries, Celtic goddesses, female characters from series like Games of Thrones, and even Disney princesses.
Women with long, healthy hair represent all of them.
Those women didn’t have their hair fall out, or at least, it didn’t look like it.
So, I understand your concern. Your hair is part of your power, your strength.
If you lose hair, you may feel less beautiful, less seductive, and less strong.
Can you do anything to stop the loss?
Of course, you can.
First, I’d like to know what happened before the hair loss.
My intuition or experience tells me that hair loss started before you dyed your hair blonde. Maybe, at first, it was a few hairs.
But after dyeing your hair blonde, the hair loss became a bigger problem.
Do you know why?

Because your hair was weakened before applying the blonde hair dye
How do I know that?If you dyed your hair blonde, you may have bleached it previously.
I believe you know that bleaching is an aggressive chemical process for your hair. In fact, it’s the most aggressive chemical process for your hair.
Bleaching is done by mixing two very powerful chemicals:
- Developer or hydrogen peroxide
- Ammonia or bleaching powder
When you apply bleach to your hair, it penetrates the hair fiber and removes the natural or artificial color.
To achieve lighter or medium blondes, you probably applied several bleaching jobs to your hair
The cuticles that cover and protect your hair fiber break with each bleaching process. It results in the loss of minerals, proteins, and vitamins that are essential for your hair.
Also, when those cuticles break, your hair thins out.
That’s why, you noticed that your hair was drier, thinner, and more brittle after dyeing it blonde.

And that’s exactly what causes hair loss.
Now, we can’t sit and cry over spilled milk. The damage has been done and now we must solve it.
How? I’ll tell you about it below.
The first step to stop hair loss after dyeing it blonde is to repair the cuticles with keratin productsKeratin is the main protein in your hair. It gives your hair a healthy structure and strength.
When you bleached your hair and dyed it blonde, it lost keratin during both processes. It left empty spaces in each strand of your hair.
Consequently, your hair started to break and fall out.
Now, you should include products containing keratin in your hair beauty routine.
- Shampoos and conditioners with keratin to strengthen your hair with every wash.
- A keratin mask to stop hair loss. You should apply it twice a week on your damp hair from roots to ends. Leave it on for 20 to 40 minutes.
When can you start? Right now.
When will you see the results?
Once you start shampooing and conditioning your hair with keratin and apply the keratin mask, you’ll see results within three weeks.
Don’t panic. During the first and second week, you’ll notice that you lose less hair, but you’ll still continue to notice hair falling out in the shower, on your pillow, or in your brush when you untangle it.
However, little by little, the hair loss will decrease until it’ll stop.
You need to be consistent. It won’t do you any good to apply the keratin mask once or twice and then forget about it. Consistency is key if you want to stop your blonde hair from falling out.
Why don’t I recommend applying a keratin treatment with heat?
Because the keratin is sealed into the hair using the flat iron at very high temperatures. As your hair is damaged and broken, it won’t resist the heat. Instead, your hair will break from the root, which is a much more serious problem than hair loss.
But don’t despair. You can go for other treatments as well.

Start using OLAPLEX 3, 4, and 5 to stop hair loss after dying your hair blonde
Unbelievably, OLAPLEX repairs years of damage to your hair in a single application. Of course, it’s more expensive than shampoo, conditioner, or keratin masks.
So, it’s up to you to decide.
If you can’t afford OLAPLEX, keratin products will stop hair loss, but they’ll take longer. They could take up to four weeks to show results.
OLAPLEX, in turn, repairs the hair from the inside out. It’ll be as good as new because the product repairs the molecular bonds, the cortex, and the cuticles.
The OLAPLEX treatment consists of several steps or products. OLAPLEX 1 and 2 are applied in the salon because they’re for professional use.
I recommend using OLAPLEX 3, 4, and 5 at home. OLAPLEX 3 repairs your hair. OLAPLEX 4 and 5 are maintenance steps.

How to apply OLAPLEX 3
- Use OLAPLEX 3 on dry hair. Divide your hair into four sections, from forehead to nape and from ear to ear, holding them with hair clips.
- Apply it to each section of hair with a hair color brush. Using a comb, distribute the product throughout the entire strand.
- Leave the product on for a maximum of two hours and rinse your hair with plenty of cold water. You can use your usual shampoo and conditioner or OLAPLEX shampoo and conditioner.
If your hair falls out after dyeing it blonde, it was probably severely damaged during the previous bleaching session.
You need to start repairing your hair immediately with hair products containing keratin.
Keep in mind that hair loss won’t stop immediately. You’ll need to be consistent with the repair routine to achieve visible results within four weeks.
If you repair your hair, and the hair loss doesn’t stop or diminish, consult your family doctor. In that case, hair loss may be related to other health issues.
