Going green?

OK, so of coursssse Angelina can pull off this look, but lets face it, green hair isn't in this summer.

While everyone is tuned into the Olympics this week, I can't help but think about all those
swimmers -Michael Phelps (hubba hubba!)- and their hair! I mean, how in the world do these
champions keep their hair looking so good?

If you have light hair and have ever spent much time in a chlorinated pool, you're likely far more
familiar with swimmers hair than you'd like to be. The green-hair look is prevalent in plenty of
summertime pictures from my childhood, and often there were other green-haired children there, too.

While it's tolerable as a kid, as an adult, it's far from funny. Fortunately, it's easy to avoid, and there
are plenty of options for treating it.

Obviously, you can wear a swim cap -- the tighter it fits, the better it will keep the water out.
However, sometimes it's hard to keep all of your hair tucked underneath. Plus, you know, if you're
just goofing around in the pool (not doing serious laps), it's kind of dorky.

Another option for prevention is to wet your hair, coat it generously with conditioner, and then swim
away -- this fills in the pores of your hair, making it less likely to absorb the copper, which is what
makes your hair green.
Try the Daily Conditioner by Arrojo, it is enriched with vitamin B5 
and helps to smooth and detangle your hair.

The best option is to find a product that combine features of shampoo, conditioner, nutrition and
moisturizer all at once. We recommend the Swimmer Wellness Kit by Malibu.

The treatment and products naturally eliminate elements (chlorine, bromine, copper, calcium, lime or
salts) that can make swimmers’ hair look and feel damaged.
