Green Hair – How to beat the chlorine blues.
It’s that time of year again. What better way to beat Sacramento’s sweltering 100 degree days than poolside? It’s suspected that copper-based algaecide rather than the chlorine itself is the culprit for that shamrock hue. But chlorine will dry out even the best haircolor-so be sure to protect your investment! If you’re dying to dive, rather than sit landlocked this year, follow The GS HAIR Professional Styling Team’s best tips for keeping the chemicals off your color!
- Prevention. Saturate your hair in the fresh water shower before entering the deep. Hair is like a sponge. If you saturate it with clear fresh water first, the damage from chlorine soaked water becomes less damaging.
- After-care. After swimming, don’t let your hair ‘chlorine dry’! Rinse again in clear fresh water. At home gently cleanse right away with a deep moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. We recommend Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner. The pure Argan Oil will deep moisturize your hair without weighing it down.
- Deep Condition. At least once a month- more, if you swim often. That beautiful platinum blonde needs extra care. L’Oreal Absolut Repair Cellular Masque will never let you down.
- Already Green? GS HAIR carries a line by Malibu Wellness specifically for swimmers. ‘Swimmers’ removes the chemicals that cause crunchy, gummy, lifeless green locks into tip-top shape. Return to your own softness, swing and shine.
