1. Protect your hair before swimming
While it seems weird to wash your hair before actually dipping in the pool, there’s a good reason for it. Hair is like a sponge that will absorb the moisture when you shower. So once your hair is saturated with clean water, chlorine will have a harder time inflicting damage. You can also carry Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner in your bag to apply on your strands for extra-moisture before entering the waters.
2. Rinse your hair right after a swim
Don’t wait to arrive back home to get under the shower. Even if it’s without a shampoo, you should always rinse your hair right after your swim to remove as much residual chemicals possible. This will also help your hair withstand the sun exposure after each swim. Once under the shower, think of applying some conditioner before brushing your hair to avoid breakage.
3. Look like a pro
Even if, like most of us girls, you are not a big fan of the swim cap, you should wear one especially if you are at the pool. A good swim cap will keep your strands dry and protect it from the pool chemicals’ damage. For extra protection, you can even coat your strands with some conditioner before wearing your cap.
4. Protect it from damage with extra nourishment
Hair tends to get extra dry during summer due to the sun and heat. Hence why, you need to be extra careful with how you treat your hair. Choose products that provide deep nourishment like Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner. For extra conditioning and to protect your hair against damage, try Pantene Pro-V Moisture Renewal Hair Rescue Ampoule once or twice a week. Remember deep conditioning and moisturizing is always key.
