Do you wet your hair before you dive into the pool or sea? Every time? Do you?
here is why you should!
Your hair can be very strong but at the same time, it’s like a delicate sponge. It absorbs all liquids.
So this means, when you dive into the pool, your hair doesn’t just absorb water, it also absorbs chloor or other products that have been added to the water.
Same goes for when you dive into the sea. It ain’t pure water.
Salt en chlorine damage your hair so you can prevent this by 1st taking a shower. It might seem like a hassle but your hair will thank you for it! It has to soak up fresh & pure water before getting in contact with the pool or sea water. This way the contact with the pool or sea water, won’t be as damaging to your hair.
Especially when you have colored hair! Because YES ladies, blonde hair tends to get green because of chlorine! Been there, done that (10 years ago 😅)
So get your ass under that (probably ice cold) shower! BUT cold water is a good thing. It closes the cuticles which makes it harder for the chemicals & salt to penetrate your hair…
Summer, we are ready!
