Tips to protect your hair when bathing at the beach or pool

  1. Prepare your hair the day before with some kind of conditioner. You can even wash your hair only with conditioner if you wish. Add a mask or treatment to keep it well hydrated.
  2. Just before you get in the water, wet your hair with tap water until it is well soaked and the water drips from your hair. And the reason we want to do this is because the more “full” your water hair is, the less “space” it will have to absorb chlorine or salts from the pool or beach water. Many swimming pools and beaches have a shower, but if you don’t have one, it’s as easy as taking a bottle of these that have a built-in spray and using it to spray your hair until it’s completely wet and the water drips from your hair.
  3. Put some Argan oil or Serum in your hair. This will help protect your hair from friction with chlorine or salt when bathing. Especially make sure you spread the oil on the tips that are the part that is going to suffer the most.

    Tips for after getting out of the water

    1. (en)Once you’re out of the water, the first thing you need to do is rinse your hair with fresh water. Try to make the chlorine or salt go away as much as possible.
    2. (en)The next thing to do is to wash your hair with a good shampoo that will help you remove the chemical residues from the water. Re-wash with conditioner. Don’t skimp on time to condition your hair. You’ll see it doesn’t take that long, but your hair will thank you. We recommend that you use a special pulling brush for extensions to carefully detangle your hair.
    3. (en)Now, and this is very important. Avoid as much as possible using heat from the iron or dryer shortly after leaving the pool or the beach. Why? Because chlorine is a chemical and even if you have washed well there are always residues of this chemical that leave your hair dry and you won’t want to dry it out anymore.

      That’s it, you’ll see how easy it is. And with these tips that won’t take long, you can be sure to keep your hair in excellent condition this summer.
