We all enjoy the occasional dip in the swimming pool, and since summer is heating up, it is important to make sure you're protected from all the chlorine in the water. After a long swim, your hair will become dry and brittle, and will be more susceptible to split ends and breaks. With a few easy steps, you can make sure to get through the summer with healthy, beautiful hair.

1. One of the easier steps to prevent damaged hair from a swimming pool is to rinse it with fresh water before diving in. This will allow the hair to soak up as much clean water first, so less chlorinated water can damage the hair.

2. The next step you can take in preventing damaged hair in the pool is by wearing a swim cap. These may not be the most attractive things to wear, but your hair will be much better protected by it. You can also take it one step further by applying conditioner to your hair before putting the cap on, to ensure that it doesn't dry out.

3. In General, healthy hair practices like keeping the coloring, perming and blow drying to a minimum will go a long way in preventing damage from chlorine too. If your hair is already damaged before you start swimming, it will just add to the amount of damage.

4. When the day comes to an end and it is time to wash up, using a clarifying shampoo is the best way to treat chlorinated hair. By binding in moisture, the shampoo will reduce dryness caused by the chemicals in the water.

Summary: There are a few key tricks to remember in order to keep your hair safe in the swimming pool. By protecting it and keeping it from drying out, your hair will be healthy and beautiful after using La Finesse Clarifi` Shampoo.
