Bleaching your hair doesn't just remove the color.
It also breaks down the fatty acids in the hair shaft, leaving your HD closure wig dry and brittle.
If your skunk stripe hair is damaged from excessive bleaching, there are steps you can take to make it easier to comb and promote new, healthy hair growth.
How do I identify bleached hair?
So how do you know if bleaching your curly lace front wig actually causes you to bleach damaged hair?
Here are some warning signs to look out for:
1. Loss of Natural Shine
Usually, the cuticle is flat and the hair looks healthy and shiny.
Bleached damaged hair has a damaged cuticle, which makes it look darker.
2. Hair Tangles
Bleached hair has rough cuticle layers that "stick" together, causing tangles.
3. Brittle and Dry
Bleached damaged hair allows its internal moisture to escape as the protective cuticle is destroyed.
This can make hair brittle and dry.
Brittle and dry bleached damaged hair is more likely to break, which often manifests as flying and curling.
5. Split Ends
Similarly, damage may manifest as jagged bifurcated ends.
How to repair overbleached hair?
Step 1: Style your hair
You can make the part you want and then comb the hair on either side of the part.
This will help you identify areas that need to be blackened for a more natural look.
Step 2: Select root spray
This hair is a natural black, so you'll need to apply a clear root spray in the black shade.
Take this, it's like a paintbrush, you don't want to press it down, you don't want to put it on your lace and play it down where the hair starts.
Then go back to the bleach on the lace.
Step 3: Blow dry your dyed hair
Run a rat tail comb through your hair and blow-dry your hair with a hairdryer because this is transfer oil and if you don't let it dry you'll get it on your hands.
Brush your hair black when you blow it, run a comb through your hair and try to spread out the dye evenly to make sure everything is fine.
Step 4: Comb and define the curl pattern
Use nutritional wax sticks and lay down everything you make sure of.
Then use a hot comb to define the hair.
Step 5: Apply concealer to the area
Choose a concealer that matches your skin tone.Take a little at a time and gently apply to the area in small pieces to make sure it's natural.
Hair is damaged quickly, but it is a slow process to repair and maintain. With a little patience, you will see the results you want.
