Help! The pool is trashing my hair


 
I do a lot of competitive swimming and, though I wear a swim cap, my hair often looks green and glassy, with a lot of dead, split ends. I have tried everything from pricey swimmer's shampoos and sprays to soaking my hair in things like ketchup and honey, but my hair still looking unhealthy. I have been trying to grow my hair out for years, so cutting it off is not an option. Is there anything I can do to prevent my hair from looking so dead all the time?


Good for you for rocking a swim cap in the pool! Other gals take note—it can save your locks from a lot of damage.


Using products with silicon-based polymers can protect your hair and give it some shine. The chlorine may keep the pool clean but the chemicals strip your hair of its natural oils and moisture.

If your hair has already been sacrificed to the pool gods what you really need is a lot of deep conditioning and moisturizing. Avoid dying, drying, perming or using other heat tools on your mane.

And, as much as you hate to lose length, once your ends split they will only continue to travel up the shaft of your strands. That means the healthy hair will be ruined until you lop it off. Split-ender menders can provide a quick fix until you can get in your stylist’s chair.
