Pre-swimming Hair Care Tips

  • Take a shower.

Donning a swimming cap, which is made from latex, silicone or lycra, is the easiest hair care tip to prevent the hair from getting dry and damaged due to the harsh chemicals present in the pool and the beach.

Post-swimming Hair Care Tips

To keep the saturation of chlorine or salt water at a minimum, you need to rinse your hair with non-chlorinated water after every half hour.

  • After every swim, wash your hair with non-chlorinated water.

To protect your strands from the harsh elements found in the pool or the beach, you must follow these hair care tips. Make sure to rinse your hair with warm and non-chlorinated water for a period of 3–5 minutes. During washing, make sure to use a natural clarifying shampoo to get rid of the salt or chlorine that is trapped on the hair.
