Its something that everyone with blonde has has experienced at some point in their life particularly if living in Queensland...
Chlorine Green Hair!
We have 5 simple steps for you to prevent and resolve green hair so you never have to hide it again.
Lets start with a bit about hair in general.
Hair is porous just like a sponge or paper towel, and when your hair experiences extreme conditions like colour, heat, sun etc your hairs outer layer (cuticle) becomes damaged and therefore becomes more porous. Porous hair absorbs quickly.
Now lets talk about swimming.
Despite my references about chlorine green, its not necessarily the chlorine itself that causes your hair to go green, it is in fact a chemical reaction from the metals in the water, in particular copper, iron and manganese, which are then oxidized by the chlorine, and your hair being porous soaks up this water.
Something else to keep in mind too, if you have a lot of silicone build up in your hair from the products you use, you use bore water or have copper pipes in your house, these things can make your hair more susceptible to green.
Prevention is key here, and your hair will thank you. Slip, slop, slap for your hair next time you swim.
