Here are some quick tips to prevent chlorine from wreaking havoc on your hair:
- Wet your hair prior to entering the pool to reduce pool water absorption.
- When you’re done swimming, rinse hair quickly so that pool water doesn’t dry in your hair.
- You can also apply a leave-in conditioner spray before entering the pool. A good option is the Matrix Biolage Daily Leave In Tonic. It will help prevent absorption of pool water and give some sun protection to your hair.
- Use Matrix Alternate Action Shampoo to help remove chlorine from your hair. Pool water is very drying and damaging. That funny green that appears in your hair is from the copper in the chlorine, not from the chlorine itself. It’s very hard to keep hair from absorbing it, so follow these tips and they will help. If the problem still persists, you might need to see a professional for a demineralizing treatment.
