When it comes to poolside fun, maintaining your hairstyle can be a challenge. We got in touch with Linda Miller, a seasoned hairstylist, to get some expert advice on keeping your locks looking fabulous. Here’s what she had to share.

Hair Care Tips for Different Hair Types

“Hair type is an important factor when considering pool hairstyles,” says Miller. “For fine hair, a simple braid or low bun can work wonders. This keeps the hair from tangling and getting heavy when wet. For thicker hair, a loose braid or bun can keep it manageable.”

Protecting Your Hair from Chlorine and Salt Water

“Curly hair often benefits from a leave-in conditioner or curl cream before swimming,” Miller suggests. “This can help protect the hair from the harsh effects of chlorine and salt water. Wearing a swim cap is also a great option, especially for those with color-treated hair. It can help to keep the hair dry and minimize the damage from pool chemicals.”
