If you are going to be swimming in a pool you should wet your hair before hand so that your hair is mostly soaking up the water you put in it and not the chlorinated water. Chlorinated water is not good for your hair, especially if it is color treated.
You should try to wear a cap when swimming in pools whenever possible, in order to protect your hair from the chlorine that is added. If you do not wear a cap when swimming, you should make sure to wash your hair and then, condition it, right after you are done.
Protect your hair! If you use heat to style your hair, make sure you take extra care to protect it. While flat-irons, blow-dryers, and curling irons may give you beautiful hair one day, they may leave your hair frizzy and lifeless the next. Always use products that protect your hair from heat, and invest in a ceramic flat iron.
If you are finding yourself dealing with frizz and uncontrollable curly hair, consider trying the no-poo or lo-poo method. This hair care method involves using only conditioner to wash your hair on a regular basis. Curly hair needs oils to maintain its shape and style, so shampoos which strip the oil away can cause every day to be a bad hair day. Switch to using conditioner on a regular basis and shampooing only once a week.
If you are looking to avoid breaking your delicate tresses, be sure to protect them when you sleep at night. Silk pillowcases are excellent for preserving hair integrity. Otherwise, you can take the time to either wrap your hair in a silk scarf, or loosely tie your hair into a low ponytail before bed.
When choosing your hair products, look for products with no alcohol. Applying alcohol on your hair will make it very dry and fragile. If you still want to use products containing alcohol, avoid using these products on a daily basis and wash your hair thoroughly afterward, so that the product is rinsed out.
Eat a balanced diet, and make sure you get plenty of exercise. Living a healthy lifestyle has everything to do with the health of your hair. Smoking, not getting enough sleep, and other unhealthy habits are detrimental to the health of your hair. Take good care of yourself, and your hair will follow suit.
