I am going on vacation and plan to use the pool. I don't know what to use to help remove chlorine from my hair, but I don't want to buy even more chemicals in the form of shampoos that say they remove the chlorine, kwim?

The biggest thing is to make sure that you saturate your hair with water before you enter the chlorinated pool. Dry hair will suck up chlorine really easy, but if it's wet, not so much.

When I was little my mom used to put lemon juice in my hair after a day of swimming. As an added bonus if you do it while in the sun it can brighten up your natural highlights

Wow! Thanks for that. I never thought about it. I will certainly start doing that as I've been spending a decent amount in the pool lately.

I have fine hair, and this would make my hair break off all over. You can use lemon juice to lighten hair, and skin for that matter. But I wouldn't recommend it right after chlorine.<br><br>
As to what to wash with after swimming, my hair dresser recommends a chelating shampoo with a deep conditioner. I'm not sure that sounds right though.<br><br>
Any swimmers?
