After a brief hiatus from the blog, a great family vacation and now wedding season in full swing, I am back. Remember I am always looking for blog ideas from my fans and clients and I also welcome questions. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
With the recent heat wave hitting us (WOOHOOOO), I am willing to bet that lots of you and your kids are spending time in the water and in the pool. If you have not noticed a green tinge in your hair by now, you will before summer is over. Blondes definitely noticed this more than other hair colors. It usually grabs onto the driest part of the hair, which is the ends. The good news? There are ways to prevent it and ways to get rid of it.
Leave-in Conditioner is your best friend this summer. The sunshine dries our hair out and adding a leave-in to your routine will help to prevent that. Before you head to the beach or jump in the pool run some through your hair to help with color fading and to protect your strands from chlorine. If you are spending the whole day in the water, just re-apply the conditioner the way you do sunscreen.
Chlorine is drying to the hair and can build up on the hair over time. Make sure you rinse your hair out after swimming in the pool each and every time. There are many professional shampoos that help remove chlorine and impurities. I would recommend contacting your hairdresser to ask them what they think is best for your hair. These products do tend to be drying to the hair, so use with caution and make sure you have a great conditioner to follow-up.
If the hair is super green and the shampoo is not working, you need to contact a professional to help with that. There are treatments and different processes they can use to get the green out of your hair. The best thing is to prevent it in the first place. SO, remember:
1. Use a leave-in Conditioner before
2. Purchase a professional shampoo that removes chlorine and impurities
3. Rinse your hair after swimming in chlorine
Today is another hot one, so I am off to the beach. I hope you are too!
