Fact or Fiction?

Chlorine does have a “roughening” effect on hair, causing people to sometimes associate chlorine as a factor in rough hair. The magnitude of the rough hair effect is dependent on the type of chlorine, how long hair is exposed to it and the level of chlorine in the water. If and when your hair is exposed to chlorine (it’s found almost exclusively in swimming pools), be sure to rinse hair with clean water as soon as possible to help you avoid rough hair.

Verdict: Fact.
