Maintenance for a Bleach Re-touch is very specific and must be done every 4-6 weeks. This is dependent on how fast your hair grows. If your re-growth is too long, it will create a more extensive service than a re-touch. If your hair has not grown out enough, you could potentially get some overlap of the lightener, which can compromise the integrity of the hair. If you find it challenging to commit to this level of maintenance, discuss alternative services with your stylist to achieve your desired blonde look without a long-term commitment.
At Home Care
Your Bleach Re-touch at-home care will be the same as a Bleach and Tone. Maintaining your hair’s health and tone after a bleach and tone service is crucial. Here are some at-home care recommendations using R+Co products to keep your hair looking its best:
- Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner: We recommend R+Co’s Sunset Blvd shampoo and conditioner to maintain your hair’s tone at home. These products are sulfate-free and designed to protect and enhance your hair’s vibrancy.
- Deep Conditioning: Incorporate R+Co’s Sunset Blvd blonde toning masque when needed to maintain and enhance your blonde tones. This toning masque is specifically formulated to neutralize brassiness.
- Heat Protection: Prior to styling, apply R+Co’s Hot Spell to protect your hair from heat damage. This product will also add shine and smoothness to your style.
- Leave-In Treatment: For extra hydration, use R+Co’s High Dive Moisture + Shine Crème as a leave-in treatment. Apply a small amount to damp hair and style as usual.
- Color-Enhancing Products: Consider using R+Co’s Sunset Blvd blonde toning masque every other week to maintain and enhance your blonde tones. These products are specifically formulated to neutralize brassiness.

- Regular Trims: Schedule regular trims to keep your hair ends healthy and prevent split ends. This will also help maintain your overall hairstyle.
- Avoid Excessive Heat Styling: Minimize the use of hot styling tools to prevent further damage. When needed, use a heat protectant, as mentioned earlier.
- Cold Rinse: After shampooing and conditioning, rinse your hair with cold water. This helps seal the cuticle and maintain color vibrancy.
- Professional Maintenance: Continue to visit your stylist for touch-ups and toning as needed to keep your bleach and tone looking fresh.
