When I swim at the beach, I wash my hair at the showers every time after I swim, so the salt won't remain in my hair for a long time. Also, I try to do some deep conditioning the night before going to the beach and after I come back, so my hair won't be dry and frizzy.

I remember seeing a video on Napptural85's channel about generously applying a conditioner and sealing with an oil shortly before swimming if you plan to swim.
She mentioned something about the conditioner forming a barrier between the chlorine and your hair.

You know what? Scratch that, here's the video.

Will a sulfate-free shampoo get rid of chlorine water?

Key Tips
  • Rinse your hair with tap water before you get in the pool.
  • Don't wear a swim cap if it pulls too tightly or rips out your hair at the hairline.
  • Always shampoo after you swim, chlorine does not rinse out.
Step 1: Always rinse your hair in the shower before getting in the pool. If your hair is "filled up" with clean tap water it won't be able to absorb as much chlorinated pool water. There's usually a shower right near the pool that you can use to rinse your hair before and after diving in.

Step 2: Apply a thorough coating of a silicone serum to your dripping wet hair. The serum will help protect your hair from the force of the water. Choose an inexpensive serum like John Frieda Frizz-Ease Original Serum, $7.50.

Step 3: (Optional) Put on a swim cap. Many swim caps are so tight that they pull your hair out when you take them on and off. Try a Speedo Silicone Swim Cap, $7.99. If a swim cap causes you to lose hair, don't use it. Just let your strands hang free instead.

Step 4: After you swim, rinse your hair with tap water again. It's best to wear a hat if you plan to stay in the sun after you exit the pool.

Step 5: Always shampoo your hair after you're done swimming for the day. It's important to use a shampoo that gets rid of chlorine and mineral build up. If your regular shampoo contains EDTA or Phytic Acid it will provide thorough enough cleansing. If your regular shampoo doesn't contain EDTA or Phytic Acid, buy UltraSwim Chlorine Removal Shampoo, $15.21 for a pack of 4 ($4.99 each MSRP) for pool days.


I needed this... Apparently I've been doing it wrong since I have been only co-washing during the week and shampooing once a week smh my poor hair.

Well there are many other treatments for hair care after swimming because the pool water is chlorine mixed and that is effect to hairs. But if you use some natural therapies to them then I think you can prevent them.

I had a shower cap under a scarf last weekend when I took the family to the waterpark...no shame to my game eitherLOL
I think I will pick up the serum.  I used Frieda products early in my natural journey so I like that product line already.

I shampoo and condition with Garnier Fructis (for fragile hair/hard to grow) Then use John Freida's Frizz ease serum.  I never use a blow dryer.  I use a thin towel and twist it around my head until my hair is almost dry.  my hair comes out very straight. I have relaxed 4 type hair

I wet my hair down, apply the sun masque made by Paul mitchell, then use the sun protection spray also by Paul Mitchell... they are new products that just came out and they protect your hair from UV (both types) rays
