Is your hair drying out from swimming regularly? If so, you’re not alone. Ever since swimming pool operators have been using chlorine to sanitize their pools, swimmers have had to deal with the unfortunate side effect called “swimmer’s hair“.
Chlorine was a great discovery for sanitizing swimming pools, and I think speaking for most swimmers we’re grateful for clean, healthy pools. However, it would be great to leave the chlorine in the pool after swimming.
As you have found out, chlorine is tenacious and has a way of hanging around long after you are finished swimming. It sticks to your hair and skin like glue. Have you tried taking showers multiple times only to find that the chlorine smell just stays on you? Yep, that’s not your imagination, that’s actually the chlorine.
You don’t have to put up with these negative side effects any longer. And the dry, crunchy hair that (in the past) has immediately identified swimmers outside of the pool? That’s no longer a problem either.
So how do you avoid swimmer’s hair in the first place? We recommend the first thing you do is wear a latex swimming cap and wet your hair in the shower before swimming. The swimming cap will provide a physical barrier between your hair and the pool water. It’s not foolproof though and pool water will find its way into the cap.
Using a swimming-specific shampoo like our ELITE shampoo is a great chlorine removal shampoo for swimmers.
