- Squeeze and Leave – When we have finished shampooing our hair we very often put our conditioner on without squeezing out the excess water in our hair. This will mean that the conditioner is not as concentrated as it could be and will not work as efficiently. Once you have squeezed the hair and applied the conditioner, try using a comb to pull the conditioner through the length of the hair to ensure that it is blended in and then leave it for at least ten minutes before rinsing.
- Cold Water – This is an old favourite and only for those who can stand the cold! After you have finished rinsing the conditioner from your hair, doing a final rinse with cold water is said to greatly help. The cold water apparently helps the cuticles to seal and gives your hair a healthier and shinier look and feel.

The first is to make sure to use a grey hair shampoo specifically made to strip out unwanted chemicals like chlorine.
Many steer clear of swimmer’s hair by avoiding getting your hair wet altogether. This could be as simple as not going underwater. But if you love to submerge, you could sport a lovely swimmer’s cap. These caps can be quite stylish, sold in many colors, shapes, and sizes.
Besides the chlorine, the hot summer sun can also have an adverse effect on your hair. Ultra Violet rays are just as harmful for your hair as they are for your skin. These rays break the bonds in keratin, the protein that makes up hair. This causes roughness, split ends, and can give your hair a bleached-out look.
One of the easiest ways to protect your hair against the sun’s rays is to wear a sun bonnet, head band, or bandana.
