Damage, and if your hair is already heat damaged, it will only do more damage. Weakening your hair, breakage, split ends, shedding. Etc.

Bleaching even healthy hair to white is very high risk for severe damage, you have to destroy all the melanin pigment. Persulphate bleach is not fussy, it happily also eats at your hair's structural proteins and dissolves the fatty layer holding the cuticle together. If your hair is already damaged by heat styling, you are practically guaranteed straw, gummy/ stretchy or snapping off hair. A lot of people with platinum or pastel hair use extensions, they cannot grow their natural hair as long as that photograph.

IMO spend some months growing out the worst of the current damage, baby your hair with products containing coconut oil, hydrolysed protein, ceramides, 18-MEA and panthenol. Don't heat style, comb super gently, use protective styling, religiously cover when in the sun, run strand tests on shed plughole hair before you touch your head, bleach over the top of coconut oil and include hydrolysed protein in your mix.
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
