Three days prior to coloring your hair, use a prewash and deep-conditioning treatment to lock in moisture. The prewash and conditioning treatment encases each strand of hair, protecting it from damage.
Bleached hair has the pigment removed, so use a filler color before applying your desired hair color. If you apply the desired hair color without a filler color, the resulting color is dull with green tones. Choose a golden filler color, such as a medium golden brown, to dye bleached hair.
After applying the filler color, rinse, condition and wait 24 hours. Apply the darker hair color, cover your hair with a shower cap, and leave the hair color on for the amount of time indicated on the hair color instructions. Rinse thoroughly, and apply a deep conditioner.
Condition your hair every day to repair and moisturize it, and to keep it looking shiny and soft. Use a deep, leave-in conditioning treatment at least once a week.
