Swimming is a such a fun summer activity, but chlorine can damage your hair if you’re not careful. If you or your children take regular trips to the pool, there are steps you can take to protect your hair from chlorine damage. In this blog, we’ll provide tips on how to protect your hair from chlorine damage so that you can enjoy the pool without worrying about damaging your hair.
The first step in protecting your hair is to wet it before entering the pool. This helps reduce the amount of chlorine that is absorbed by your hair as it acts as a barrier between the water and your strands. You should also rinse off after each swim session with clean water and use a clarifying shampoo afterward to remove any excess chlorine residue.
In addition, applying natural oils such as coconut oil or olive oil can help protect against dryness and breakage caused by chlorine exposure. Swim Spray is another product that can be used to reduce the impact of chlorine on hair; simply spray it on soaked hair before swimming and it will create an invisible barrier against harsh chemicals! Finally, make sure to tie up long hairstyles into a bun or braid before swimming so that there is minimal contact between the pool water and your strands.
Finally, when you get out of the pool, resist the urge to blow-dry your hair; instead allow it to air dry naturally as blow drying can strip away moisture from already-damaged strands. When brushing through wet strands, be sure to use a wide-toothed comb or brush gently so that you don’t cause further breakage or split ends.
The best way to protect your hair from damage caused by chlorine exposure is by following these simple steps: wetting before entry into the pool, rinsing with clean water after each swim session, applying natural oils such as coconut oil or olive oil beforehand and/or using Swim Spray when needed, tying back long hairstyles while in the water, and allowing time for air drying after leaving the pool rather than blow drying. With just a few precautions taken ahead of time, you will be able to enjoy regular trips to the pool without having to worry about damaging your locks!
