Summer is upon us. It’s definitely time for a new do! It’s difficult trying to decide what look you’re going to rock this summer. Is it going to be highlights to really make your hair pop? Or would you rather go with low-lights for that subtle voluminous look you’ve been craving? Regardless of what look you choose, you’re going to need to protect it… especially if you plan on diving into a pool this summer.
Before you decide to hop into a pool, hop into a shower. Hair is like a sponge. If you can get it soaked before getting in, your hair will absorb less chlorine; meaning that your highlights will be safer.
As much as so many people will hate this idea, a swim cap is pretty much your best bet for keeping your low-lights from fading. A good compromise is tying your hair back. This means less hair will be exposed. The less hair that is exposed, means that less of your hair will be affected by the chlorine.
Even with precautionary measures, you can’t be too safe. Rinsing your hair out immediately after leaving the pool will lower the chances of your hair being damaged by chlorine.
Better safe than sorry is the name of the game. If you want to go that extra mile to protect your hair, use a clarifying shampoo to clean excess chlorine from your hair.
The best way to keep your hair safe is to speak directly to your stylist. It’s important to have a knowledgeable stylist on your side.
