How to protect your hair at the pool
1. Wet Your Hair: Before entering a pool, wet your hair thoroughly with clean water. This helps minimize the absorption of chlorinated water by your hair strands.
2. Use a Leave-In Conditioner: Apply a leave-in conditioner or hair oil to create a barrier between your hair and the chlorine. It helps to keep your hair moisturized and protected.
3. Wear a Swim Cap: Use a swim cap made of silicone or latex to cover your hair completely. This provides a physical barrier against chlorine exposure.
4. Shampoo Immediately After Swimming: After swimming, rinse, shampoo, and conditioner your hair with clean water to remove any residual chlorine. Pay special attention to the roots and ends.
Pro Tip: Shampoo with Clarifying Products: Use a clarifying shampoo specifically formulated to remove chlorine buildup from your hair. Use it after swimming to deep clean your hair and scalp.
Bonus: Apply a deep conditioning treatment to hair before putting on a cap and maximize your time.
