Discover Why Hair Care Treatments Are Essential After a Summer of Swimming, Northeast Jefferson, Colorado

In the heat of summer, the best remedy for high temperatures involves a dip in the pool. Unfortunately, just a couple months of routine contact with chlorine can have negative effects on your hair. With over 35 locations in the Denver, CO, area, Fantastic Sams offers nourishing hair care treatments to bring your locks back to life.

If you’re starting to notice the damaging influence of chlorine on your hair, consider these reasons why scalp and hair care treatments are essential after a summer full of swimming:

  • Breakage: While chlorine helps keep pool water clean and clear of bacteria, it can have a harsh effect on your hair and skin. As you immerse your hair in the water, the hair shafts intake chlorine, which rids each one of its natural lubricants. Eventually, the hair will get so dry that the protective cuticle lining will crack, leading to breakage and flyaways. Fantastic Sams offers deep conditioning and smoothing hair treatments that can replenish your hair's lost moisture before it’s too late. 
  • hair treatmentGreen Hue: Repeatedly swimming in chlorinated water can often cause blond or lighter-colored hair to develop a green hue. This occurs when the chlorine in the pool interacts with copper pipes and other metals before coming in contact with your hair. Should this happen to you, Fantastic Sams specializes in coloring techniques to bring your hair back to its natural shade.
  • Split Ends: If the pool has dried out your hair, you might notice split ends, causing the bottom of your hair strands to fray. The best hair treatment to rejuvenate dry hair is a minimal, healthy haircut. Trimming the split ends off to where your hair shafts are complete allows your hair a fresh start, free from breakage. 

Aside from these post-damage hair care treatments, you can prevent split ends, breakage, and discoloration by simply protecting your hair before you enter the water with a swim cap or a leave-in conditioner—anything that provides a barrier between your hair and the chlorine.

When you have damaged hair from pool water, the hair stylists at Fantastic Sams will help you find the best hair products and treatments for your hair problems. Stop by one of their convenient Denver locations and visit the website for more hair care information.
