I have gone from bleach blonde, to brown, then back to bleach blonde more times than I care to admit and now and it has finally started to take its toll on my stupidly thick Hair.

I spoke with my brilliant hairdresser, Kayley at Aveda Urban Therapy in Nottingham and she recommended some products and techniques to keep my hair the vibrant and bright silver colour that it is, whilst adding some moisture.

The toner that Kayley uses on me at Aveda also teams up as a moisturising treatment, so when I leave the salon my hair always looks in great condition and feels silky smooth, not to mention the fact that Kayley gets rid of all my split ends and hair that is damaged beyond repair

Kayley has also advised me not to wash my hair every day, as shampoo tends to strip natural oils out of your hair, therefore dry shampoo has become my new best friend, especially since I've been trying to grow my hair out of the sleek bleached bob that it was in, whilst still trying to maintain the condition and bright white colour.

I have cut down to washing twice a week and wearing it up or dry shampooing it on the inbetween days and to keep my at the vibrant silver colour that Kayley has managed to get it at, inbetween visits to the salon I always use PROVOKE'S Touch Of Silver Shampoo. It is really good at lifting out yellowish tones that might appear after washing bits of toner out of your hair, whilst keeping the rest of the hair a bright white/ashy blonde/grey.

I have always found it really difficult to find a conditioner that keeps my hair feeling soft after a couple of days of no washing, however whilst recently shopping in Poundworld (they sell a brilliant range of sweets, ok), I stumbled across Bristows Silver Conditioner. I only bought it, as I was staying at my boyfriends house and knew I needed to wash my hair the next day. After my first use, I knew that it was a keeper. The violet pigment works similarly to Provoke's products, however it also leaves my hair feeling extremely soft, even after day two of not washing it.

Another thing that Kayley told me to be wary of was using heat to my hair to style it, this scared me at first because my GHD's are the only way to get rid of my tangled mess of frizzy bed-hair, however  have found that since using a light sprits of Tresemme's Heat Defence spray, the damage caused from almost daily straightening and teasing goes almost unnoticed,

I'm not going to lie, my hair isn't in the best condition after a bleaching, however whenever Kayley does it, a lot less has to be trimmed off due to damage as she is experienced and knows exactly how long to leave the die on and what levels of peroxide to use on my hair.

I hope that this advice has helped anyone thinking about taking a leap into bleaching, or hopefully given anyone with bleach some advice on how to bring life back into their hair!
