Hey guys! I don’t know about you guys, but summer is here and that makes me happy! Although I will not deny that summer is not my favorite season, there are so many beauty tips to try and help make it an awesome summer. I have gotten a lot of questions this summer about how to keep hair healthy after being in a swimming pool. So I have decided to write down my tips and tricks on how I like to keep my hair looking good in the summer.
When I was interning as a hair stylist after I graduated beauty school, I learned about one simple hair trick to get the chlorine out of your hair after being in the pool all the time. As strange as it may sound, use dawn dish soap once a week as your shampoo. Dawn is a clarifier that helps to remove the chlorine from your hair, but be careful to not do it too much or it will dry your hair out terribly. Clarifying shampoo can be expensive, and may not always give you the results that you are looking for. Dawn is fairly inexpensive and does the job. This is also a great way for blondes to help prevent their hair from turning green, which is never a fun adventure.
Another tip is to make sure that you always rinse your hair out after getting out of the pool. This will help lessen your chances of damage from the chemicals in the pool as well as help your scalp not be as dry.
I always believe that a hair mask will never hurt you in the summer, especially when swimming in the pool or even the ocean. The water tends to dry out your hair as well as your skin. By applying a hydrating mask, or even a damage control mask, to your hair once a week will help to keep your hair feel and look healthy!
Remember to always wear sunscreen and try out these tips and tricks for healthy hair in the summer!
