You Will Need
- Leave-in hair conditioner with sunscreen
- Club soda
- A clarifying shampoo
- A sulfate-free shampoo
- A deep conditioner
Wet hair before swimming
Wet your hair and use your fingers to apply a dollop of leave-in conditioner with sunscreen before swimming. It will help block absorption of salt and chlorine.
Rinse it afterwards
Rinse your hair with fresh water as soon as you come out of the water, then apply another layer of leave-in conditioner. If you were in a pool, try rinsing with club soda; the bubbles help wash away the chlorine.
After a day of swimming, wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo; it helps remove chlorine, salt, and pollutants. Use a sulfate-free shampoo the rest of the time; it will be less harsh than standard shampoos, and summer hair needs all the tender loving care it can get.
Deep condition weekly
Deep condition your hair weekly in the summer, especially if you swim every day.
