Chlorine is added to water in a swimming pool to prevent the growth of harmful substances, such as bacteria. However, while it’s at work killing germs, it is also killing your hair’s health status. Chlorine strips hair of its natural oils, which are there to protect hair from damage in the first place. Without oil, hair can become dry, frizzy and brittle. Repeated exposure to chlorine can cause even more damage by injuring hair follicles, which can lead to hair breakage.

There’s no need to turn in your pool pass, however. There are many at-home solutions you can make with ingredients right out of your kitchen cabinets.

Raw eggs. Yup, the “Incredible, Edible Egg” is even more incredible than you thought. Eggs are made almost entirely of protein, so they can help strengthen the hair shaft and make hair silk and shiny.
