Protecting Hair & skin in the Pool

We’re always looking for new ways to protect our children - and that goes for in the swimming pool too. Whether you want to find out what chlorine does to children’s skin or how to treat your child’s hair post-swim, we have all the facts to help keep your little water babies protected and leave you safe in the knowledge that you’re doing the best you can.

How can I protect my child’s hair from chlorine?

Thankfully for busy parents, there are a number of quick and easy steps you can take to help protect the hair. Read on to discover our savvy suggestions below:

  • Always wet hair before getting into the pool – this saturates it and means it will be harder to absorb the chlorinated water
  • Wear a swimming cap – in some pools this is compulsory for hygiene reasons
  • Slather hair with conditioner before you get in the pool – this will condition the hair and protect it from the water
  • Try coconut oil – some people swear by this natural form of protection, why not give it a go?
  • Rinse, rinse, rinse – always wash your hair after swimming with a gentle shampoo, ideally while you’re still at the pool
  • Invest in a trusted after-swim product – try our Vosene Kids Gentle to Skin After Swim Hair & Body Wash
