Wet your hair before going to a pool – Before dipping yourself in a chlorinated pool, wet your hair with bottled spring water to dilute the harsh chemicals that will dry your hair and even fade its hair color.

Dry your hair gently – Do not wrap your hair in a towel when your get out of the shower. The added friction can knot and damage your vulnerable wet hair. Carefully blot your hair dry instead.

Do not brush hair when wet – Hair is at your most vulnerable when wet. Use a wide-toothed comb instead of a hairbrush, working tangles as you move from the ends toward the scalp.

Use care when styling – Use thermal protectant for maximum protection when using styling appliances.

Use the right hair products – Put some hairspray or spritz with moisturizers and sunscreens to finish the hair, providing continual protect throughout the day.
