So Cool by the Pool!

There’s no better way to cool off than sitting poolside with an ice cold glass of lemonade. Many of us find ourselves spending a lot of time at the nearest pool to get a golden tan and take a cooling dip in the pool. Did you know that those chlorine and chemically treated pools could be causing your hair to be become damaged?

Of course, it wont become damaged after one visit but regular exposure to chlorinated water can cause significant damage to those beautiful tresses. Chlorine is a disinfectant that breaks down and removes dirt, oils and bacteria from the pools, which helps the water stay clear and clean. 

Your scalp produces natural oils, prolonged exposure to chlorine strips your hair of all those natural oils. This will cause your hair to feel dry and become frizzy.

Min-Ja Lee with ABCNews wrote an interesting article about keeping your hair, skin and bathing suit free of chlorine damage. It gives you home remedies to get rid of that green tint and maintain silky hair while swimming. Here’s a link to the article, How to Keep Chlorine From Wrecking Your Hair, Skin and Swimsuit.
