How to Prevent Chlorine Hair Damage

Tips for keeping your hair damage-free when in the pool all Summer long
Good morning Kind Friends!

Here is the new video for the July Video Extravaganza. This video will teach you how to prevent chlorine hair damage for frequent swimmers. I hope you find it helpful.


What you’ll need:

Going in the pool every once in awhile and showering after is fine but if you are going in consistently the chlorine will build up in your hair, making it dryer and more prone to breakage. Your hair is like a sponge so it is going to take in all of those harmful chemicals.

To prevent chlorine damage, follow these steps:

  1. First, dampen your hair. If your hair absorbs tab water it literally has less room to absorb chlorine water.
  2. Then, add an extra barrier of conditioner. This will also make it harder for chlorine to be absorbed by your hair.
  3. If you have one, put on a Swimmer’s Cap for a third layer of protection.
  4. Then when you are done in the pool, shampoo your hair using a shampoo made for swimmers. This will help regulate the pH in your hair back to normal.

Since I have been going in the pool consistently I’ve actually noticed my hair improving because of the deep conditioning! I hope you dolls found this helpful.
