    Cleanse

    <p>Even a swimming cap cannot keep your hair completely dry, the ends are bound to get wet. Shampoo your hair as soon as you get out of the pool. If shampooing is not an option even rinsing your hair after each swim can help remove the harmful chemicals found in pool water.</p>

    Condition
