5 EASY STEPS TO PROTECT YOUR HAIR WHEN SWIMMING IN CHLORINE AND SALTWATER

 

 Chlorine and saltwater will damage color-treated hair or hair extensions only if you don’t properly take care of it.
If you’re obsessed with having “Mermaid Hair” then here’s how to protect your hair, before and after you swim.


5 EASY STEPS TO PROTECT YOUR HAIR WHEN SWIMMING IN CHLORINE OR SALTWATER

 

Whether it is chlorine, saltwater, or sand blowing through your hair, all of this – combined with UVA/UVB Rays … are like cancer deposits on those silky strands of your’s.

To prevent further damage, you’ve got to be proactive and protect your hair from the sun, especially when you’re swimming.

 

OIL & SUNSCREEN 

 

What makes healthy hair healthy? Oil. Your body produces natural oils as a barrier to protect your hair from losing its elasticity and shine.

Before you go swimming, you should coat your hair with coconut oil to prevent chlorine and sodium from stripping your hair’s natural oil. Then add a thin layer of sunscreen to protect your hair from sun damage.

 

We recommend these brands : 

 

Nutiva Organic (unrefined) Coconut Oil

Garden Of Life Organic Coconut Oil

Viva Naturals Organic Coconut Oil

Sun Bum Original Sunscreen spf 30 

Coola Organic Hair & Scalp Sunscreen Mist 

 

 

PRESOAK WITH WATER 

 

Believe it or not, your hair can only absorb but so much. If you coat it, then soak it with water, this will act as a shield to push away the pool water.

BRAID IT OR PUT IT UP

 

Brush out tangles with the Wet Brush Pro Detangler Brush , braid it on each sides, or put it up so it won’t get it the way when you’re under water swimming. This will make your life so much easier before you shampoo it.

SHAMPOO & CONDITION

 

Try not to wait too long to shampoo. The longer you wait, you may risk your hair becoming dry and harder to manage.

For a shampoo and conditioner that delivers the five benefits of beautiful, healthy looking hair – smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish, use Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo & Conditioner.

Use a dime size amount of shampoo, rinse, then condition.

If you are a swimmer, we recommend a clarifying shampoo once a week to remove chlorine, oil, and product build-up from your hair. We highly recommend

Living Proof Triple Detox Shampoo.

LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER

 

Do you often forget about this part? Because leave-in conditioner is an important part of your haircare routine. It will make your life so much easier – especially after swimming.

 Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray, is an amazing leave-in conditioner that will help eliminate frizz, tangles, and prevents your hair from breakage.

Spray from mid-shaft to ends of your hair, then use Wet Brush to brush the conditioner throughout.
