Clean Pools Contain Chlorine
Thank goodness for chlorine. It’s the most widely accepted sanitizer for public pools. Most likely the pool you swim in uses it. Chlorine kills infectious organisms and water borne diseases. It’s highly effective and persistent.
You may have experienced how persistent chlorine is. Have you ever smelled like chlorine long after your have left the pool? That is because chlorine has formed a strong bond with your hair and body. It’s difficult to get off after swimming. In fact, normal soaps and shampoos don’t get chlorine off.
Chlorine is especially damaging to hair.
Hair in its normal state is slightly acidic, or lower than 7 on a pH scale. But chlorine is alkaline (higher than 7 on a pH scale). When you hair comes in contact with chlorine, the cuticle lift. This is why your hair feels rough after swimming.
The cuticle is very important to keeping your hair shiny and healthy. Normally, your cuticle lie flat and lock moisture into your hair. When theses scale-like structures lift, the chlorine is able to attach to the hair shaft and remove natural oil from your hair. You hair becomes dry, dull, crunchy and rough.
