CON­QUER CHLO­RINE

No. 1 Magazine - - SCOTLAND’S NO.1 FOR HEALTH & BEAUTY -

Whether your hair is au na­turel or you’ve got hair ex­ten­sions in, we’ve all tried to avoid dunk­ing our heads un­der the wa­ter when we’re splash­ing around with the kids in the swim­ming pool due to the worry that the chlo­rine will ruin our manes. Chlo­rine can strip out the nat­u­ral oils in your hair, leav­ing it dry and brit­tle. It’s not great for hair that’s been coloured or permed ei­ther – in a nut­shell, chem­i­cal hair treat­ments and chlo­rine just don’t make for a healthy com­bi­na­tion. Be­fore you take a dip in the pool, wet your hair with fresh tap wa­ter to slow down the chlo­rine ab­sorp­tion. Once it’s wet, ap­ply some co­conut or Moroc­can oil to act as a guard once you en­ter the pool. Just as you’d make sure to pro­tect your skin from the sun’s sun harm­ful rays, it’s im­por­tant to do the same for your hair. Add some wa­ter re­sis­tant UV pro­tec­tion to your sum­mer hair care rou­tine ro – not only will this save your locks but it will also help to pro­tect your scalp too!
