It’s no secret that pools and saltwater are mean to hair. And chlorine treats your dye job like it stole something. But there are easy ways to enjoy every hotel pool party and Hamptons weekend this summer without turning your tresses into straw.

1) Oil Up Oil penetrates your hair strands, preventing salt and chlorine damage. Every Hairgurt Conditioning Masque is rich with our Botanical Oil Blend, starring Hazel Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil, Mango Seed Oil, Pomegranate Oil and Raspberry Seed Oil. Just use your favorite recipe — Coconut Açai, Oatmeal Honey or Strawberry Banana — and coat your strands thoroughly.

2) Drench Your Locks Wet your hair — we mean really, really wet it — before you get into the water. Like a sponge, even your strands get full. Saturating your hair with water means there is no room for chlorine and saltwater to penetrate and cause damage.

3) Post-Swim Care Stop damage in its tracks. A quick wash-and-condition with Hairgurt will prevent chlorine and seawater from just sitting on your hair and doing its worst. Added bonus: You’ll smell delicious.

Party’s over, chlorine!
