Hair Turning Green from Chlorine?

June 19, 2017 Sharon Lynn

While swimming and hot tubs provide fun and enjoyment, chlorinated water wreaks havoc on your hair, leading to dull, dry, brittle and sometimes green hair.  Fortunately, now there are shampoos specifically targeted to eradicate chlorinated hair, as well as other unwanted build up from hair products like hard water minerals, gels, mousses, and sprays.   Even without swimming or spa usage, regular shampooing can leave mineral deposits due to elevated mineral content in water that can way hair down, make it look dingy, and lose its luster.  With usage of a clarifying shampoo, all unwanted elements can be washed away easily.  When choosing a shampoo, keep in mind you may want something for color-treated hair and that is gentle enough for all ages.
