Going to Water World at Ocean Park? You need more than sunblock!
Sunblock protects your skin. What about your hair and scalp which is most exposed both sun and pool water?
Some 5~7 hours of pool-water-then-sun cycle is NOT good for your hair and scalp. Water world is similar to swimming pool. The alkaline pool water will open up hair cuticle, making it less elastic and more brittle. Moreover, the chlorine in the pool water sucks the natural oils from your hair and scalp, leaving them dry, rough, and damaged.
Suitable amount of sunlight is normally good. But when your hair is already loosing its moisture with the open cuticle, the drying sun will further augment the situation. It is certainly not optimal.
大約 5 ~ 7 小時不斷的泳池水加太陽曬乾的循環，對您的頭髮和頭皮都不太好。水世界類似游泳池。鹼性池水會打開頭髮角質層，使其彈性降低，更易碎。此外，泳池水中的氯會吸收頭髮和頭皮上的天然油脂，使它們變得乾燥、粗糙和受損。
The following are a few simple steps to protect your hair:
Before the fun:
wet your hair with fresh water such that hair pore have no "space" to absorb chlorine water
seal your hair with barrier oil to seal off from chlorine water and moisture loss from sun.
After getting out:
immediate rinse with fresh water to get rid of chlorine water
clean hair and scalp with shampoo having the right acidity level to close up the pores of your scalp
seal your hair again with oil or conditioner to close up the hair pores
ENJOY YOUR DAY AT THE PARK !
