Tip of the Week - Chlorine Tip

Posted in 'Tips' on December 15, 2009

With most people spending a lot of time in the pool over the Summer months, we end up with dry and stringy hair from all of that chlorine. Mix a teaspoon of bicarb soda into your shampoo before you put it in you hair and you will be able to feel the chlorine coming out as you wash it.
