Any chemical you put in your hair damages it.
Perms and hair coloring permanently damage your hair in effort to curl or color it permanently.

Outside of perms, bleaching, highlighting, color stripping, or putting blonde hair coloring in your hair are the worst things you can do to it.

Your mom is right- bleach/color/perm your hair, it will never be the same.

Long term damages? None on the new growth if you allow it to grow out, of course, but the only way to get your hair back to it's natural color/healthy state is to grow it out and cut off the chemically processed hair.

As for bleaching and keeping super soft hair, your best bet would be to get highlights. With highlights, you don't have roots blazing out at you that cause you to have to constantly re-bleach your hair.
With regular conditioning and weekly deep conditioning treatments, you can re-soften the hair. But that does NOT reverse the damage.

If you bleach all of your hair and want to keep it what way, re-bleaching will eventually cause your hair to be dry, brittle, breaking, split ended, etc.

Yup. Bleaching basically destroys your hair follicles and makes your hair feel like straw. You're much better off dyeing it a lighter color, like a dark blonde or light brown, then using the color you wanted originally. It's less damaging to lighten gradually, and it's much easier to get your original color back if you don't bleach your hair first.
