Hair Fallout After Bleaching HELP!by bluezefPosted 2 weeks, 3 days ago
I'm panicking about this oh nooo. I bleach my hair by myself a lot, so I never thought this would happen but I just bleached my roots since it grew out and I think I left it in for too long. It was 40 developer (I know) and I left it in for half an hour and when I went to wash it out my hair started falling out in clumps. I combed through it really gently and it just kept falling out. I got my friend to help me check and she said that I have a ton of bald spots that I don't think were there before. What should I do? I'm really worried I'll end up bald but the hair that fell out didn't have the follicle on it, but at the same time there are so many bald spots...
I always heard that bleaching hair won't cause it to fall out and instead it'll break, but I can't see where it broke and instead I've just got all these bald spots so I'm really worried.
Any advice would be great please!

Hi, it looks like it was too harsh for your scalp? did your feel your scalp burning? you could get a doctor's advice, maybe there are some creams you can use to help it heal. Wish you good luck!

Yea, I just learned after binging the forums that I should never use 40 vol on my roots which is why it was so bad... It didn't burn or hurt when I was doing it though so I wasn't worried until it was too late. I'm going to a hair salon to get it cut and ask for advice soon, so hopefully they can fix it! Thanks for the well wishes!
