Apply coconut oil
Before you head out to swim, ensure that you massage your hair with a generous amount of coconut oil. Ensure you apply it from root to tip so that it forms a protective layer on your hair and minimises the damage.
Take a shower
Before you make a jump for the pool, make sure you take a shower. The water also forms another layer around your skin, so that the harmful chemicals in the pool are not absorbed. Your hair will absorb more chlorine when its dry, so make sure you don’t miss this step.
Rock that swimming cap!
Swimming caps are a simple and inexpensive way of providing your hair with the necessary protection that your hair needs. Who wants chlorine-drenched hair? So, wear that cap save yourself all that trouble, because, remember, prevention is better than cure!
