Make sure theyre cut when the hair is dry never wet , and dont have them cut straightacross. On days when your bangs simply wont behave or they spring back too much, keep themweighted while the hair is drying by placing a clip at the end of each wayward curl.

Q Whats the best way to protect my hair when swimming in the pool or ocean? The chlorine used in pool water can dehydrateyour hair, give blond hair a green cast, and make brown hair look ashen. Some tips: Before swimming, pour extra virgin olive oil in your hands, rub them together, and apply in adownward motion to the top layer of your hair.
How much you use depends on how dense your hairis. Since oil and water dont mix, the oil will repel the chlorinated water. Get a spray bottle from ahardware store to make applying the oil easier. If you wear a bathing cap, spray the lining of the cap with olive oil. This not only protects the hairfrom breakage, but makes it easier to remove the cap after your swim.
Never use shampoo to wash your hair after swimming. The combination of chlorine and sulfates inshampoo adds a double dose of chemicals to your hairs delicate surface. And dont be fooled byproducts that promote themselves as swimmers shampoo, because most of these also containsulfates.
