Apply your regular sunscreen to your scalp. Don’t bother applying any to your hair, though! Sunscreen doesn’t protect your hair from UV rays like it protects the skin.
2. Cover Up
With a hat, that is! Not only will it protect your hair and scalp from the damaging effects of the sun, but it will keep your beautiful face shaded as well.
3. Deep Condition
Apply a deep conditioner once a week to your clean, wet hair just before you leave for the pool. Your cuticle will open up in the heat and absorb the hydration as you sit pool side.
4. Spray Conditioner
Your hair is like a sponge and will absorb the first thing it hits. Just before you get in the water, either douse it with a spray conditioner or get it wet with fresh water to help prevent as much pool water as possible from getting in.
Directly after you get out of the pool, wash your hair with a good, deep cleansing shampoo, and follow with a super hydrating conditioner ( we <3 Kevin Murphy’s Maxi Wash followed by their Hydrate.Me wash and rinse!). If nothing else, at least rinse your hair off with fresh water.
