    So I want to go to the hair dresser to get the other half of my hair coloured blonde but my hair is really damaged. I noticed a small piece of my hair snapped like that. Could I just tell the hairdresser to just focus on my roots?

    I think you should mention it to your hairdresser, they would be extra careful and also might recommend some stuff for you. In the meantime, do loads of coconut oil treatments and buy protein packs for hair. Ask for Olaplex too of course when bleaching it (if you are). I hope all goes well!

    Thanks Yeah, a few people recommended getting Olaplex. Think i'm going to get a large trim and wear extensions after I get my hair bleached.

    I imagine so, Olaplex is a lifesaver! That plan sounds good too!! Could i ask what extensions you're going to wear?

    Defo use Olaplex. It's pricey but the only thing which permanently restores your hair. Everything else just coats or "fills" it for a short period.

    Yes you can ask for them only to concentrate on the roots. But you will need to wait for sufficient regrowth so that the hairdresser can minimise overlapping, and further damage to comprimised hair. Going blonde from dark will always entail damage. Olaplex will not stop the damage but will help to control the damage.
