Pool season has finally arrived, which means that blonde hair girls need to tae extra care of their hair.
Unfortunately, the chlorine from the pool turns the blonde hair into green,
With proper preventative steps, you can prevent our hair from turning green after swimming,
The chlorine in the pool totally makes their hair turn green. It's a look that results from a combination of chlorine and copper. Copper is probably not the first thing you think of when taking a dip but there are metals in your pool water. Hard metals that are found in pool water are copper, iron, and manganese. These metals get oxidized by chlorine and grab hold of your hair causing it to turn a greenish tint.
There are a couple of preventative things that you can do:
1. Start With Wet Hair
Before you even dive into the pool, make sure your hair is already wet. If you soak your hair with tap water it gives your hair a little coating so that the chlorine can't hold on so tight.
2. Create a Better Barrier
Depending on how much you swim, it may also be a good idea to apply a leave-in conditioner all over your hair and tuck it up into a swimming cap. This combination will be a stronger barrier than your pre-swim rinse with the garden hose.
3. Wash After You Swim
This is perhaps the most important part of the process. Even if you are in a rush after your workout or on your way to your next pool party, you must shampoo and condition your hair right after you're finished with your swim. Take special care with your conditioner to make sure you are really sealing in all the moisture that you can. The chlorine in pool water can really dry out your hair. A clarifying shampoo might also prove to be very helpful during this process.
4. Use Something Acidic, Like Ketchup Or Tomato Juice
This is going to sound totally nuts, but apparently, ketchup (or tomato juice - it's still acidic), lemon juice, and vinegar are all capable of getting rid of the green tint in your golden tresses once the damage is already done. If you mix ketchup with your conditioner and leave it in for about ten minutes, then rinse with cold water repeatedly, you should be able to get out the green.
