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, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut
Treatments: Komaza Matani, coconut oil, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss ultimate volume, Inecto argan
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Boots Essentials gel
Experimenting with: going back to basics

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.
