Chlorine and salt water are not your hair’s best friends. We all love the pool and the beach in the summer time, but we all still want pretty, shiny hair, without split ends right? Well the number one thing to do before getting into the water is to get your hair wet with non-chlorinated water before jumping in. Your hair soaks up the non-chlorinated water first, making it hard for anything else to get trapped in there (the chlorine). If you really want to protect your hair (and not wear a swim cap…hot!) try using argan oil (seen below) or some of the following products.
Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum – $30 at Sephora.com (Use this to protect against chlorine before getting into the pool, in place of a swim cap!)
Philip Kinsley ‘Swimcap’ Cream – $25 at Philipkinsley.com (This product was actually created for the U.S. Olympic swim team. It protects your hair against chlorine and salt water!)
Ojon Full Detox Detoxifying Shampoo – $24 at ojon.com (Removes chlorine and all the extra buildup.)
Tresemme ‘Nourishing Rituals’ Rejuenating Mud Masque – $4.99 at ulta.com (Put this one before getting in the pool, or afterwards for soft hair.)
Paul Mitchell After-Sun Replenishing Masque – $19 at paulmitchell.com (Get crazy moisture with this masque after a day at the beach!)
