Chlorine and TR

Chlorine and TR

TR and Chlorine/swimmers green hair:

Although chlorine is thought to be the only cause of green hair, your hair turns green from the presence of hard metals (copper, iron, and manganese) in the pool water. The metals are oxidized by the chlorine and then bond to your hair, causing the greenish hue. Chlorine is bleach and it will cause hair pigment to lighten. Color-treated hair may fade, and darker hair may become less shiny.

TRd hair tends to absorb chlorine, becoming further damaged and over-processed. Chlorine affects hair more than salt water. Chlorine and hard water minerals can all cause serious damage to the hair not to mention leave it unmanageable, frizzy and for some; weighted and lifeless. If green hair is going to occur, it is most common on swimmers with light blonde hair, and light skin. For the light skinned blonde, though, the treatment is not so easy. You will need to locate and purchase the appropriate products.

Swimming: You wouldn't go in salt or chlorinated water without it.

Chlorine can form green cast on the hair too, and it is most obvious on blondes and grey hair. It is not so obvious on black hair, as the green becomes lost in the background color.

What to do before swimming in chlorinated pool/sea water:

First soak your hair with fresh water for 2-3 minutes. This will help your hair to absorb the fresh water and won't be able to "hold" the chlorinated/sea water. Run UV Rescue After-Sun Conditioner through it. This will prevent chlorine/sea water from being absorbed into your hair. Then, if possible put on a tightly fitting swimming cap.

After swimming in chlorinated pools/sea water:

Immediately rinse your hair with fresh water after swimming. Don't allow chlorine to dry on your hair. Shampoo the hair with Redken’s Hair Cleansing Crème Shampoo or UV Rescue After-Sun Shampoo. Follow-up with UV Rescue After-Sun Conditioner.

Armed with the language, we educate ourselves on certain subjects where we learn the fundamentals and disciplines related to hair. When we find a subject appealing, we want to learn more than just the basics, more than the fundamentals. We learn the disciplines – the proper mechanics. And we discipline ourselves to do it correctly. In essence, in order to master the subject, we do whatever it takes to own the information.

So, you say to yourself: “Where do I go from here?” I understand the language, and now I know how to take better care and to create beautiful hair, based on hair that is in optimum condition…simple, isn’t it?
