I agree with you, bleaching your hair is so bad for your hair and it can make it very brittle, especially when not treated with the proper stuff afterwards. There are certain hair things you can do at home like cutting it and dyeing it, but stuff like ombre and bleaching can be too tricky to be done at home without things of research, and even then, professionals know best because they have been trained for this. Sorry OP, FYL for your hair falling out but YDI for not going to a professional like #7 said. Maybe you can try on some wigs until it grows back?
I've bleached my hair myself several times, I've just done research and actually read the instructions. OP must've put it too close to their scalp early on and used a very strong product. You're supposed to do it in stages but I never did as I got scared at the point when it went orange and wanted it blonde asap, maybe OP did the same but left it way too long. Still doesn't deserve their hair falling out.
I agree, salons charge way to much for bleaching. I used to go to get it done but then learnt how to do it myself and have never had an issue. Sometimes crap happens. Even in salons. They used to make me sign a waiver stating that they weren't at fault if my hair fell out.
I can bleach my own hair now, but this was after a while of practice. First time, I went to a salon. Got it professionally done, end of story. Second time I bought GOOD products (cheap bleach is a no no) and I tested it on a small area of hair before I did the rest.
