Go Ahead, Get in the Swimming Pool
Summer is rapidly approaching and our thoughts are turning to having some fun in the sun. Particularly, taking a dip or maybe doing a cannonball in the backyard pool. And then our brains say, “hold on missy, we do not want the chlorine damaging our hair.”
Not to worry, you can help prevent chlorine damage by selecting a good leave-in deep conditioner and applying it all over your hair before you go swimming. The conditioner will coat your hair which will prevent the chlorine from seeping into the hair shaft.
You can also rinse your hair in the shower before getting in the pool. This fills the hair cuticles with water that has very little chlorine in it so that your hair can’t absorb all the pool water which has a lot of chlorine. Of course, after you are done frolicking in the pool, be sure to use a shampoo that is designed to remove chlorine from the hair.
