10 Best Treatments for Bleached Hair in 2022 (Fanola, Joico, and More)

Bleaching your hair opens up a ton of opportunities in terms of color, but it can also leave your hair dry and damaged. So we scoured the internet for treatments to make having the hair color of your dreams a little easier.

After poring over reviews, we’ve come to the conclusion that the best products are both moisturizing and strengthening, color-safe, and protective. When considering a product, you might want to look for one that includes oils, proteins, and maybe a purple dye. We kept all of this in mind when putting together a list of some of the best treatments for bleached hair available online, with our number one choice as NatureLab. Tokyo's Perfect Repair Treatment Masque. Read on for why!

How to Choose a Treatment for Bleached Hair – Buying Guide

All bleach-damaged hair basically need the same things—moisture, strength, and protection—but to different degrees. We'll go over these points here.

Look for Hydrating and Strengthening Ingredients to Repair Damage

When dealing with damaged hair, it’s extra important to not just read products’ claims, but also consider exactly what’s in them.

Oils and Butters Lock in Moisture

Oils and Butters Lock in Moisture
Bleached hair is especially prone to dryness, so it’s important to look for ingredients that can help you hold on to as much moisture as possible. Avocado, coconut, and olive oils are some of the most common oils that you’ll see along with shea and cocoa butter. These ingredients are powerhouses when it comes to keeping your locks hydrated.
If you have thinner hair and don’t want to worry about weighing it down, look towards lighter oils like argan, jojoba, and tamanu.

Proteins and Amino Acids Provide Strength and Structure

Proteins and Amino Acids Provide Strength and Structure

Another common issue with bleaching is that it leaves brittle hair. And while hydration can help to combat this weakness, protein will actually help your hair regain its strength by filling in the damaged areas—kind of like spackle.

If a product doesn’t specifically use the words “protein” or “amino acids” in its labeling, it might still be protein-rich. Look for words like keratin, collagen, silk, oat, rice, or wheat as these are good indicators of protein content, too.

Know What Will Preserve and What Will Ruin Color

If you have dye on top of your bleached hair, you’ll really want to do your best to upkeep the color.

Ensure that the Treatment is Color-Safe

Ensure that the Treatment is Color-Safe

One of the first things you should check is whether or not the product is labeled as color-safe. Certain ingredients can strip the dye from your hair, which is the last thing you want to do. However, not all products will note whether or not they’re safe for colored hair, but that doesn’t automatically mean that they’re harmful.

A quick way to tell if a product can still work for your colored hair is to check if it’s free from sulfates and alcohols, which are some of the main stripping culprits.

To Prevent Brassiness, Look for Purple or Blue Tinted Products

To Prevent Brassiness, Look for Purple or Blue Tinted Products
One of the big problems that people have when they bleach their hair is brassiness, particularly when you’re starting with a much darker color or going very light.
A fairly simple fix is to regularly use products that have a purple or blue tint—purple for blonde hair, blue for brown. Just be sure not to use one too frequently or for too long as that can cause your hair to become dark or gray looking.

Think About Treatments Offering Extra Care

Think About Treatments Offering Extra Care
Things like heated styling tools, swimming pools, and fun in the sun can be damaging for any type of hair, but those with bleached hair need to be extra careful. So if you find yourself in situations where you might be piling on damage, it’s important to look for products that are heat protectant, have SPF, or provide some sort of environmental barrier.

10 Best Treatments for Bleached Hair

Depending on just how damaged your hair is, different products could work better or worse for you. So keep the state of your hair and how much repair it needs in mind when making your choice.

More Tips on How to Repair Bleached Hair
If you’re here because you’ve overbleached your hair and it’s heavily damaged, then you probably already know that simply slathering on random products won’t work. There needs to be a logic to what you’re using and when you’re using it.
Repair starts with a good protein-rich keratin treatment, which will help prevent any further breakage. But too much protein can also be damaging, so stick with a once-a-week mask at most.
The next step is hydration in all possible forms—shampoos, conditioners, masks, and serums. You should be adding back as much moisture as your hair can take without looking too weighed down or oily. For extra moisture, feel free to occasionally leave a mask in overnight to really let it sink in. And finally, trim often!
