Does Chlorine Damage My Hair?

Chlorine can indeed damage your hair, causing dryness, brittleness, and discoloration. Many of us love to take a dip in the pool to beat the summer heat, but the thought of chlorine damage can leave us hesitant to take that plunge. Fear not, for we have gathered some valuable insights and top-notch tips to protect your hair from chlorine's potentially harmful effects. 

Effects of Chlorine on Your Hair:

Chlorine is commonly used to disinfect swimming pools but can have adverse effects on hair health. With prolonged exposure, chlorine molecules can penetrate hair cuticles, causing dryness, frizz, and stripping natural oils. This may lead to discoloration, especially in lighter hair shades, resulting in a greenish tint. Additionally, repeated exposure weakens the hair structure, making it more susceptible to breakage.

Tips and Tricks To Combat Chlorine Damage:

  • Apply Hair Oil: Consider using Reshma Beauty Henna Hair Oil as a chlorine protectant, especially if you swim frequently or have hair prone to chlorine damage. Reshma Beauty Henna Oils are infused with coconut, olive, and jojoba oil, creating a protective layer to prevent chlorine and pool chemicals from being absorbed into your hair strands. 
  • Deep Conditioning Hair Mask:  Reshma Beauty Deep Conditioning Mask is designed to provide intensive conditioning and rejuvenation to your hair. With ingredients such as henna extract and Argan oil, this mask can be used as a protectant barrier from chlorine. 
  • Wear a Swim Cap: For extra protection use a swimming cap that can shield your hair from direct contact with chlorinated water, reducing the amount of chlorine absorbed by your hair. For maximum protection, ensure all your hair is within the swim cap, and wear it over wet hair for a better fit. It's also a good idea to keep extra swim caps in your swim bag in case one tears.
  • Rinse Immediately After Swimming: After your pool session, promptly rinse your hair with fresh water to wash away chlorine residue and prevent potential damage. Then proceed to use Reshma Beauty Henna Infused Shampoo & Conditioner to give it a deeper clean. This simple step can protect your hair from dryness, frizz, and discoloration, keeping your hair healthy and vibrant throughout the summer.

By following these tips and tricks, you can maintain healthy hair while enjoying daily swims in chlorinated water, allowing you to swim worry-free and keep your hair happy!
