With the summer rays and white sandy beaches, we cannot resist dipping our toes into some form of waterbodies. Before we submerge all of our body including our hair, we must add a layer of protection to our hair. Salt water or chlorine water can be damaging to our hair if it's left to penetrate it for a prolonged period of time. Here are 3 ways to protect your natural hair from salt or chlorine water.
1. Lather your hair with Deep Conditioner
Lather your hair with a deep conditioner section by section to damp hair. The Tailored Beauty Moisture Penetrating Deep Conditioner penetrates the hair shaft as the hair strands absorbs the product. This adds a layer of protection as the salt water or chlorine particles cannot penetrate the hair shaft to cause damage.
The deep conditioner contains a premium herbal blend of Fenugreek Powder and Bhringaraj Oil. It has the right amount of slip and nutrients to prevent breakage, damage and aids in moisture retention.
To get the best results before you go swimming, you can apply a heat cap over your natural hair so the conditioner will penetrate deeper into your hair shaft. Don't forget to add an extra layer of product to your hair ends.
2. Style your hair into twists, braids or a bun
After applying your deep conditioner, style your hair into a protective style.
This can be jumbo twists, jumbo twists or a messy bun. The style will make it harder for the chlorine or salt water particles to directly penetrate the hair shaft. The style doesn't have to perfect as you're going to the beach to have fun.
3. Cleanse & Condition After
After your pool or beach day, you need to cleanse and condition your hair immediately. The Tailored Beauty Ultimate Collection Kit allows your curls to have a fresh start. The shampoo will thoroughly cleanse the scalp and hair of the effects of the beach or pool water. Then, follow up with a conditioner to replenish and restore the moisture, strength, and sheen back into your curls. And don't forget to moisturize prior to styling.
By following these protective measures, you can enjoy the sun, sand, and water without compromising the health and beauty of your natural hair. With proper care and attention, you can keep your curls vibrant, moisturized, and protected all summer long.
