Whilst we appreciate the bacteria busting effects of chlorine in a swimming pool, the one thing we don’t enjoy is how chlorine affects our hair. Chlorine is a very powerful drying agent, which can cause all hair types to dry out, leading to a loss of shine, breakage, and split ends.
For those with highlights, blonde, white, grey, or silver hair it can also cause another medusa-like side effect; green hair.
We’ve all seen the horror stories and tried some interesting DIY hacks to avoid the dreaded green hair (we’ll never look at tomato ketchup the same way!). But don’t worry, PRO:VOKE are here to help save your hair from the ghastly green!
To remove chlorine from your hair, you need a deep cleansing shampoo.
The Touch Of Silver Clarifying Treatment Shampoo is your saviour from chlorinated hair. It works to neutralise chlorine straight away and will help to banish this chemical from the hair if left on for up to ten minutes. With hydrating AquaPlex™ and salicylic acid, it also nourishes your hair and scalp for a truly pampering experience.
If you’re treating your hair in the summer, follow the clarifying treatment with our Toning Treatment Mask as oxidation from the sun can cause hair to turn brassy. The salon-strength violet pigment in our Toning Treatment Mask will neutralise any yellow tones.
To protect hair from chlorine damage during the day, you could also try these 3 top tips:
1 – Soak your hair in the shower before taking a dip in the pool
2 – Coat your hair with a nourishing conditioner:
3 – After each swim, rinse your hair in the shower and reapply conditioner to keep your hair protected from sunshine and chlorine.
