How to Keep your Blondie from Going GREEN!
Swimming pools are highly-chlorinated waters, and our hair shafts are as porous as sponges. Allowing all those microscopic gaps in its texture to be filled up with sometimes over-treated water dehydrates, discolors, and dreadfully damages hair! Like turning hair lemon-lime in color and causing the texture to become as brittle as straw! However, there are ways to keep yours and your loved one’s luscious locks looking luxurious, while leaving the limeades to be sipped and not worn. One of the easiest tricks is as simple as hopping into the shower before you jump in the pool! All you have to do is soak dry hair with clean, un-treated water BEFORE getting into the pool!
If you suspect the pre-swim shower jump-in is not really convenient or going to go down, rest assured that there is an equally preventative (if not extra-SCENT-sible) alternative to this practice. Shear Madness carries the Circle of Friends Emma’s Pre-Swim Coconut Scented Conditioner! It is a fun and easy to use spray that helps protect children’s hair from damage caused by swimming. Just spray in hair before you hop into the pool or waves! Kylee’s Swimmers’ Shampoo removes chlorine and gently lifts out dirt, dust, pollution, and other surface build-up, while moisturizing and untangling the hair.
And the most important hair practice for you to remember when exposing your kids’ hair to such intense chemicals is simply: Condition, Condition, and Condition! Our Maya Papaya Conditioner is specially formulated with over six conditioning agents to add softness, strength, and shine to all hair types. Our Detanglers are available in Rosa’s Raspberry, Bonita’s Banana, and Pia’s Pineapple, and they will add a layer of conditioner throughout your day while keeping the hairs manageable and smelling sweet!
What happens if the hue has already started to make its way from strawberry sunshine to swamp monster? The answer is easy! There ARE kid-friendly treatments that can be administered. Just remember that with every heavy-duty hair-stripping, you must also complete it with an equally-hydrating deep-conditioning.
