Chlorine and Sea Water Damage

If your hair feels crispier after vacation, there's a reason. "Chlorine is an oxidizing agent, which can both bleach hair of its color and damage hair by increasing hair porosity, the ability to absorb and retain moisture," shares Stegerhoek. And saltwater exposure can be just as harmful. Coming to our rescue is Living Proof's Restore Discovery Kit ($29) that includes shampoo, conditioner, and a mask. The sulfate-free products contain Octafluoropentyl Methacrylate (OFPMA) which, "creates a protective shield, repels dirt, oil or minerals — like salt," says Stegerhoek, "and help ensure the hair strands have the optimal level of moisture."
