Rebecca, this might come a bit too late, but anyhow.. I have had bleached white hair for 3 years. Originally as a brunette, i had to bleach at the salon. Your hair care needs to start in the shower. Always use a sulfate free shampoo, it is gentler, doesn’t dry. Always follow up with a deep conditioning mask and follow by conditioner. When you are done YOU NEVER towel dry. You gently wrap your hair in the towel as if it were the most precious jewel and then take the towel off, massage in a soy based oil like the one from Sexy Hair, wrap hair in towel tightly and give it at least 15 min to suck the water out of the hair. Gently unwrap the towel, then use a cream protector from GhD or Sexy hair for extra moisture and to combat frizz. Use low temperature and speed on the dryer and dry from above, not in every direction. I prefer to use an air brush, it keeps frizz off. Make sure whatever you use is ionic technology. When you are done, rub 3 drops of soy or argan oil between your fingers and softly run them through your hair, focusing on the tips and the wild hairs at the top of your head. Buy only professional products. They are SO much better than supermarket cheap stuff.
