Hair Products for Bleached Hair




I've been having my hair bleached and highlighted for a good two or so years now. I'm naturally blonde but I had long, chocolate brown hair for years and in a desperate attempt to get back to blonde I put my hair through a lot of stress. I now have a fabulous hairdresser who has been maintaining my blonde locks and keeping them looking healthy but in between 8 weekly cut and colours I also need to do my bit and that is where this post comes. 

Firstly is a product that I go back to time and time again and one, many of you probably have sitting in your bathrooms. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle is holy grail material. I love this stuff and go a bit mad on it when its on offer in Boots. Whenever my hair needs a pick up, a big splodge of this does the trick. Take The Heat contains Australian Jojoba-Seed Oil and smells ahhh-mazing. A 250ml tube usually lasts me a good few months as I only use it a couple of times a week. 

Next up is a new product I've been using since around last December which is VO5's Hot Oils. They come in a varity of types, I've used Nourish my Shine before and thought I would try Give me Moisture. All you do is heat it up in a hot bowl of water or bath, put it all through your hair for just ONE minute and then rinse out. I used this last night and my hair feels lovely, soft and a lot straighter than usual.


I switch between what I use after washing my hair quite a bit but one thing that I've found the best results with is Phil Smith Total Treat Argan Oil. This came free in a Cosmopolitan magazine and I also featured it in my February Favourites as I've been pretty impressed with it. Use a pea sized amount on the ends of your hair and then just dry your hair as normal. The first time I used this I noticed a difference straight away, my hair is smoother and my ends look so much healthier.

Next is L'oreals Heat Protect Styling Spray after towel drying my hair I spritz some of this over my hair and then out comes the hair dryer. This smells really nice, and reminds me of an old Moshino perfume. I use this as my heat protect spray, not for its straightening qualities because I don't think it makes a difference. 

Lastly is my new purchase, a Tangle Teezer. How have I only just picked one of these up?! To be honest I didn't understand why I needed to spend £11 on a brush when the one I already owned did the job fine; That was until I used my friends while my hair was wet and I loved how it glided through my normally knotty hair. Out I went to buy one and now I can't stop using it. I LOVE IT. It has made such a difference in a matter of days. I recommend you invest now if you haven't already. I'm now looking for a mini one to carry around in my bag too. Tangle Teezer convert for sure!

What are your hair care tips? I'd love to know what you're doing and using!

  1. You've got some great products there! =)
    Have been wanting to try the l'oreal one for a while now! I don't tend to treat my hair the best. ( I know I should). As it's curly I don't use any heat on it but would love some kind of a repair thing to put in it everyone once in a while! Any ideas?! =)
