A Cheap & Easy Poolside Hair Treatment to Prevent Chlorine Damage
Having platinum blonde hair, I rarely go underwater in pools or the ocean. Other blondes can back me up on this. After sitting in a colorist’s chair for about four hours every time, I wouldn’t risk ruining my hair by chlorine. But salt and chlorine can do damage on all hair colors, natural or not. There are plenty of masks and treatments to avoid it, but they’re rarely on hand to prevent damage.
There is one thing, though, that helps cleanse hair on the spot after a dip. Celebrity colorist Beth Minardi recommends pouring a bottle of sparkling water or club soda on your head to wash away unwanted chemicals. Yes, you read that right. Because of it’s low pH level, carbonated water can get rid of chlorine and even reduce frizz.
So next time you’re heading to a pool party, come prepared with a bottle of sparkling water or club soda. Make sure you bring extra for a cocktail, too!
