Experimenting with bleached hair? Ahead, some hardworking products to maintain and preserve color
Now that we’re all holed up at home again, experimenting with do-it-yourself treatments for your Bleached hair is back. Expect quarantine beauty trends—ungroomed brows, long locks, a bare face—to be all the rage, as we welcome the new year with old, but tried-and-tested habits that call attention to self-love.
If you’re thinking of becoming part of the Bleached Hair Club or already are, whether it’s just a bit of chunky highlights or a full-on new, vibrant color, take notes! Managing bleached hair, and colored hair in general, takes a lot of work. But this can also completely change your relationship with your hair for the better.
Ahead, just some hardworking products to seriously care for your bleached hair.
Moremo Ampoule Water Treatment Miracle 100 for Bleached hair (P890-P1,513)
This multifunctional, non-irritating K-beauty treatment is a nutrient-rich, ampoule cream type that penetrates deep into hair, from root to tip. It even reduces hair loss!
After shampooing, simply apply to wet hair focusing on the damaged part. Gently massage the product into hair, and wait for it to warm up—caused by friction—resulting in a steam hair mask effect. Leave it for 10 seconds and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. For best results, use the product two to three times a week.

Simply apply the product to damp hair before shampooing, and leave on for five minutes before rinsing. Use conditioner as usual. For best results, use it once a week.
