Here’s How To Treat Your Bleached Tresses With TLC

Anyone that’s ever bleached their hair or know a friend that has knows that it’s a serious commitment. The upkeep alone of such a high maintenance style is no joke.

In particular,  gospel singer and actress Tamela Mann has first-hand experience, flaunting a lighter multidimensional blonde look last year. While hair ‘do always look fabulous and well groomed, it’s not a one-woman show whatsoever. Mann can thank her longtime stylist of 20 years and counting Karla Langs to keeping her hair equally fly and healthy.

In a recent interview, Langs gave the run-down on how she keeps Mann’s mane in tip-top shape. To begin, she swears by conditioning. “Whenever you bleach your hair, you have to incorporate protein and your keratin treatments,” she shared. “The protein gives it strength and the keratin seals the cuticle.” She also stresses not double processing: “If you are relaxing and bleaching your hair, make sure to see a professional to determine the proper wait time between each process.” When treating your bleached mane with TLC, moisturizing (“The key to keeping great hair is moisture.”) and protecting your hair at night (“Use a silk or satin wrap or bonnet.”) are also must-haves, according to Langs.
