SwimSpray8) Extract Damaging Chemicals. Use a chlorine-removing shampoo or SWIM SPRAY after swimming in a chlorinated pool – or add a tablespoon of baking soda into your shampoo if you don’t want to buy a different shampoo to take the chlorine out of your hair. Make sure to keep it all mixed in!

 

9) Keep Trim. Get your hair trimmed every 6 weeks to promote growth and to keep the ends healthy.

I hope you’re having a wonderful Summer!
