Here is another tip for Tip Tuesdays…
Now that it is summer time it is more important than ever to protect your skin and hair. If you have a swimming pool or swim in the ocean the chlorinated and salt water can reek havoc on your hair.
This tip was actually given to me by my sister in law. We both have daughters with long hair and dealing with the aftermath of a day spent swimming can be tough for all those involved.
While I try to always deep condition my daughter’s hair after she has been swimming, instead of just treating it, preventing the damage in the first place is always a much better idea.
Before going into the pool (or ocean or lake or where ever you might be swimming) completely wet your hair with fresh clean water. This simple step will minimize the amount of water your hair can absorb while you are swimming. After swimming, I always wash my daughters hair with clarifying shampoo and deep condition it.
Let me know if you try it and what you think!
