7 Tips to Keep Your Hair Voluptuous
By Seth Ramirez – April 22, 2021
If you are attempting to make your hair lighter you ARE bleaching. Bleach is a harsh disruptor that breaks apart your hair proteins to remove color. After the bleaching, your hair will be lighter but significantly weaker. Breakage, frizzing, and dryness are just some of the side effects. Here are 7 tips to help restore your hair’s strength and softness after lightening your hair.
The reason that freshly bleached hair looks fried or frizzy is because the hair cuticle has been disrupted and is still open. While your hair cuticle rebuilds to retain color and moisture, you can use other substances to seal your hair and help restore some sheen and shine.!
1. Use Blue Agave Nectar
Blue Agave Nectar can also work to seal your hair cuticles and prevent protein loss. Just rub some together between your palms before applying it to dry, frizzy parts of your hair as well as your ends.
2. Use Honeybee Propolis
Honeybee Propolis is rich in antioxidants and can help protect your hair from further damage. Just a small amount is used to seal in moisture and add shine to your hair.
3. Use Kaffir Lime
Kaffir Lime extract is saturated with anti-inflammatory properties to relax your scalp. This will grow your hair and make your strands stronger. It may also assist in filling in gaps in your hair strands to keep them from breaking after bleaching. Kaffir Lime Extract also helps with moisturizing your scalp and protect your hair.
4. Protect From UV Rays
After bleaching and coloring your hair, it is vulnerable to burning from heat and fading from the sun. Sunblock for your hair also protects your scalp which may be irritated due to bleach.
5. Protect From Heat
Right after lightening your hair, it becomes especially dry and vulnerable to heat damage. The cuticle layer is already open, and more heat is just going to keep them open and allow the color to seep out as well as overextend and damage your hair. Washing and heat styling should be minimized during the first 7 days after your hair color.
6. Rinse with Cool Water
Rinsing your hair with cool water will help seal the cuticle layer of your hair. The cool-water rinsing will close up the cuticle layer and protect your hair from any extra loss of color and moisture.
7. Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner
Sulfates will strip your hair of its natural moisture and rip open your cuticle layer. This will make your hair dry, brittle and will cause your hair color to fade faster.
Hair damage from bleach is not uncommon, and there are natural remedies you can try to restore the strength and flexibility of your hair strands. Since everyone has different hair and scalp it can take a different level of time to see those results. The good news is Modafino Voluptuous Shampoo and Conditioner actually has every one of these ingredients. This allows your hair to heal and grow.

So every time you heat-style your hair you can help mend those dry ends. If you want healthier hair after you go lighter, Modafino’s Voluptuous Line is a great way to get there!
