KEEP YOUR HAIR SHINY & HEALTHY: Combat Salt Water & Chlorine This Summer
Drying chlorine or salt water can do a number on your hair, especially if you’ve dabbled in color or chemical treatments. But have NO fear, you won’t be banished to spend the entire summer indoors, as a few experts shared their tips so you can get wet without worry this summer.
🚿Saturate Before You Swim
"Dry hair is like a sponge," explains Toni&Guy US celebrity stylist, Christian Wood. "But when hair is wet, further absorption of chlorine or salt water is interrupted."
⏩Skip the Swim Cap
"Swim caps are used to protect hair from chlorine & the sun," says Katie Newgard of Keracolor. "Before entering the pool, mist hair with Keracolor's Purify Plus spray until saturated. Our products neutralizes chlorine & close the cuticle-you’re doubling up on protection."
💦🙆🏻Wash Hair Post-Swim
"Minimal exposure to salt & chlorine is OK," says Motions celebrity stylist, Ursula Stephen. "But if there is excessive swimming in salt or chlorine, then you must shampoo & condition immediately after, otherwise your hair might become very dry & brittle."
🔁Swap Out Your Shampoo
"Clarifying shampoo helps to remove excess product build-up, chlorine, etc., & provide a deep clean," explains Wood. "I recommend using a clarifying shampoo once a week with a hair masque after."
☠Chlorine Kills Color
"While saltwater dries out hair, chlorine, an oxidizing chemical like bleach, is especially hard on dyed hair," says Newgard. "Chlorine is washing your color down the drain, along with the health of your hair. It’s the #1 reason hair color fades or becomes dull so quickly."
⚡️Revive Your Strands Post-Swim
"Look for shampoo & conditioner containing moisturizing ingredients like oils & vitamin E," explains Stephen. "The Motions Active Moisture Wash & Care Line would be great for post-swim revival, and they have a Leave-in Detangler which is a savior for stressed tresses."
👀Yes, You Can DIY Color-Correct
"It sounds crazy, but ketchup is a great natural recipe to remove the slight green tinge that can occur on colored hair after swimming in a pool," explains Wood. "The natural vinegar helps clean the hair & neutralize the chlorine."
⚠️Beware of Other "Hidden" Elements
"Natural elements can damage hair," says Newgard. "But we should be worried about chlorine & trace minerals (copper, iron, magnesium, calcium) found in the water we use to wash our hair. These are the real elements that steal our color, shine, & damage our hair."
