If you swim a lot, you may have noticed that your hair turns a shade of green. And unless you are going for the Oscar the Grouch look, its probably an issue. Here are some great ideas for removing chlorine out of hair.
- Shower and shampoo your hair right away. Use a “swimmers shampoo” that contains sodium thiosulfate for best effects.
- Shampoo hair with club soda. The carbonation helps break up the chlorine.
- Lather up with Vitamin C. You can use Vitamin C crystals or a product such as SwimSpray.
- Shampoo hair with ketchup, tomato paste or tomato juice. Comb it through, let it sit awhile and rinse out.
- Kool-Aid isn’t just for kids anymore! Use a packet of Lemonade flavored Kool-Aid (or generic brand) and make a paste with water.
- Sprinkle on some Baking Soda. Make a paste from water and baking soda. If you hair feels slimey while using it, it means its working well.
- The cure for everything – Apple Cider Vinegar. ACV is also a great rinse for the hair to remove chlorine.
