The Spring Swim Dilemma: Understanding Chlorine Damage

Spring brings with it the allure of swimming, an excellent exercise for our bodies but potentially damaging to our hair. Chlorine, a common disinfectant used in pools, can strip our hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry, brittle, and susceptible to breakage. The heat from hot tubs exacerbates these effects, leaving hair frizzy and parched.

In the past, blondes often faced the peculiar problem of green hair casts after swimming, prompting questions about its cause. The answer lies in the pipes: copper pipes, prevalent decades ago, facilitated the absorption of oxidized copper into chlorine-damaged hair, resulting in the green hue. However, with the prevalence of PVC pipes today, this phenomenon has become less common.

Tips for Healthy Spring Hair in Chlorine Environments

Fortunately, there are measures we can take to protect our hair amidst our springtime aquatic adventures:

  1. Pre-Swim Preparation: Wet your hair with fresh water before entering the pool or hot tub. This saturates the hair, reducing its ability to absorb chlorine.
  2. Don a Swim Cap: Invest in a swim cap to create a protective barrier between your hair and chlorinated water.
  3. Conditioning Defense: Apply a conditioner or leave-in conditioner before swimming to shield your hair from chlorine damage. Recommended products: RoMANce Deep Conditioning Treatment or EnCore Leave-in Conditioner by Belegenza for optimal protection.
  4. Post-Swim Rinse: After swimming, rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water to remove chlorine residue.
  5. Clarifying Shampoo: Incorporate a clarifying shampoo into your weekly hair care routine to eliminate chlorine buildup. Recommended product: TransFix Shampoo by Belegenza for a deep cleanse.
  6. Minimize Heat Styling: Avoid excessive use of hot tools, opting for air drying or diffusing instead, especially after exposure to chlorinated water.
