    All lightening is damaging including UV sunlight and honey since they all fundamentally do the same thing, you are dissolving some of the cuticle lipids and blowing holes in the cortex by destroying the melanin pigment. Peroxide only box dye is slightly less damaging than a persulphate bleach system. Dying over coconut oil may help protect the structural lipids.
    2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

    CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
    Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
    Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
    Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
    Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
    Experimenting with: benign neglect

    I'm naturally blonde but wanted to go blonder too, but instead of fully bleaching my hair I got highlights. This meant not all of my hair was damaged and it had a really nice streaky, toned sort of effect. Deep conditioning really helped afterwards, but I did find that it wasn't actually that damaged, not as much as everyone thinks.
