During the hot season in Thailand, most of the ways to cool down would just be lying in the aircon room or go for swimming in the pool, but not many people know that swimming pools contain chlorine. A villain that destroys and causes hair loss!
Chlorine is a substance that acts as a disinfectant to clean the various germs in the water. Since it is where many people can access the services, overall cleanliness can be difficult. In addition, chlorine is a chemical that destroys and bleaches, causing chlorine to destroy proteins, which are important components of hair, causing dry hair, weightlessness, lack of moisture, hair loss, and also making our hair color pale as well. Especially if you go to the pool at noon or in the afternoon as well, then the heat of the sun and UV rays also cause the hair scales to open, causing the chlorine to penetrate into the hair shaft more easily. Together with the alkalinity of the water, it accelerates the reaction to make the chlorine more concentrated and with all of that now, the problem of hair loss seems to be coming at us very soon.
Simple hair care methods that will allow us to swim comfortably are:
- Coat your hair with a chlorine-resistant product or you can also use coconut oil before going in the water.
- Wearing a swimming cap can also help prevent chlorine from ruining our hair.
- Wash your hair immediately after getting out of the pool to remove residual chlorine.
- Nourish your hair with a serum because after soaking in chlorine, the hair will remain in a weak state. Doing treatment with a serum like Kemist Botanical-derived Scalp Serum is also an easy way to take care of your hair because this serum can strengthen the scalp and hair and help restore hair up to the cellular level with the extracts from sea plankton, red clover, pea sprouts, and many more. Which helps to nourish and rejuvenate your hair to fight chlorine with confidence.
Now, you, mermaids who love to swim can swim comfortably and safely from chlorine.
