I’ve been getting compliments on my hair lately and how healthy it looks. I used to swim regularly for years, and took a year break this past year. One upside of that was focusing on getting my hair back to looking healthy after so much chlorine damage.
Below are DIY remedies & products you can use which helped me tremendously to get my hair back to being healthy:
HAIR MASKS ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
▫️Coconut oil mixed with Castor oil, or coconut oil alone in my hair overnight. Wash it in the AM. I always have the best shine the next day after doing this one. Make sure to put a towel or extra sheet on your pillow.
You can also do this for a few hours if overnight isin’t an option. For those of you not into DIY, or who want to switch it up, I also use really like using Lani Hair
▫️Avocado, Banana, Manuka Honey and Peach. Mix these in a blender (swipe right👉🏼), leave it in your hair for 30+ minutes. The longer the better!
For the non-DIY version, check out Voyage Hair Spa, fresh organic fruit based hair masks.
▫️Mayonese and Egg. Mix these and put it in your hair for at least 30 minutes. Rinse first with cold water (otherwise the egg will cook), then wash normally. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀
▫HAIR RINSE ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ️ Apple Cider Vinegar – This helps remove to product build up, particulary helpful for me since I had so much chlorine build up. It also can help to keep your hair and scalp healthy, helping to reduce dandruff as an added bonus. Rinse your hair with this after shampooing and conditioning. Let it sit for a couple of minutes, then rinse with water.
▫️Baking Soda. I also would sometimes add baking soda to this mix and really focus on scrubbing my roots to get out extra chlorine residue/build up. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀
HAIR MAINTENANCE: From January -June I got a trim 4-5 weeks. Before that, I was getting a trim every few months and now I am in between the two time frames since a fresh trimmed look got pretty addicting.
