Who doesn’t like an occasional dip in the pool? But while swimming can be an excellent stress buster for you, your hair doesn’t quite feel the same. A pool with high chlorine levels can have harsh and damaging effects on your tresses, making them dry and frizzy and even discoloring gorgeous hair color.
So, to make your pool days as chilled as they are meant to be, follow these protection tips to the T.
1. Oil those strands
Before jumping into the pool, apply a generous amount of coconut oil or olive oil through the length of your hair. The oil acts as an efficient barrier between the water and the hair.

2. Rinse before the dive
Before you plunge into the pool, make sure that you take a quick rinse with fresh water. This will ensure that your hair absorbs less chlorine from the water. Similarly, post your swim, immediately rinse your hair with fresh water to remove the chlorine.
