I always change my hair and I treat it like a baby during all of this, I just never heard of adding stuff to the bleach process.
Does it make a huge difference? I might just use a hi lift blonde because there is no where near the damage in my opinion. Although if anyone out there is looking for a low damage bleach, Roux Sheer Delites is amazing. Their bleach is wonderful.
Can you get some of the pink out with a peroxide free colour remover like Color Oops?

I had heard of others doing adding coconut oil to the mix, there is lauric acid (the main fatty acid in coconut oil) in the product I use anyway, so I just chucked in a couple of teaspoons of melted oil and it worked fine. I do it as well as treatments on dry hair in the days before not instead.

Remember that a lot of the damage is not visible to the naked eye and not on the surface, the hair is weakened from the inside. Even if you notice no difference it doesn't mean it hasn't had an effect.
