Swimming is good for the body and the soul. 💦😁💦Not always so great for your mane, though. 😩 Want to know why??? When chlorinated water gets into the hair strand it can cause damage and swelling of the cuticle layer. (The higher the chlorine level, the worse the damage.) A thin layer of moisturizing oil can be applied prior to entering the pool. This will minimize water absorption from the pool. While swimming 🏊, you could also wear a swim cap lined with oil. What tricks do you use to protect your locks from chlorine?
