When it comes to Summer, salt water and chlorine can really affect your freshly coloured viva la blonde hair. Sad, we know! We want you to maintain your blonde hair colour right up until your next viva la blonde appointment. That’s why we’ve decided to dedicate this blog on the latest tips and tricks on how to protect blonde hair when swimming.
Protecting blonde hair from chlorine
First up we have chlorine.
Chlorine is one of the worst offenders when it comes to ruining our salon fresh blonde hair. It can dehydrate your hair and leaving it dry and brittle. So how do we protect our hair from chlorine this summer?
The key is Kevin Murphy Your Again. Try coating your hair with Kevin Murphy Young Again before heading into the pool for a dip as it helps to create a slight barrier between your hair and the chlorine. Kevin Murphy Young Again is weightless is also incredibly nourishing as it is full of nutrients for your hair.
Protecting blonde hair from salt water
Secondly there’s salt water. Salt water at the beach can damage your hair more than you think. Whilst we love that beach hair look, salt water can actually dehydrate your hair causing breakage. Similar to chlorine!
A simple trick to help keep your blonde hair beautiful is to rinse your hair with cold water before and after swimming at the beach. Rinsing your hair with cold water can help as your hair will start absorbing the fresh clean water and less salt water. You can also try this before swimming in the pool too.
Protecting blonde hair from the sun
Finally, did you know that the summer sun can dull your coloured hair? Whenever possible try to use hair care products with UV protection or wear a hat to shield your hair. Sun damage can also result in wrinkles and skin pigmentation so a hat will do more than just your hair justice!
Again, always use a hair rejuvenating product after any swimming activity like the Kevin Murphy Young Again. Kevin Murphy Young Again is available with viva la blonde online and in our North Fremantle and Perth CBD Salons.
