If you are a professional swimmer, problems like green hair and dry skin can annoy you to no limits. These problems arise because of the harsh chemicals used in the pool water.

There are simple treatments that you should follow which help in the regaining of the natural texture of your hair and skin. Chlorine and copper in the pool water makes the hair change its color and damage it. Therefore, you should clean your hair with a good quality shampoo and condition it properly after leaving the pool.

If you are suffering from baldness, you should be careful to save you head from the extremes of sunlight, heat and cold.

There are capillaries and nerves in the scalp region of the head that are susceptible to damage if not taken care of. You can use hats and wigs to hide your baldness or make it your style statement. Even though, you have to be careful of treating your head and the skin of that area.

While talking of the skin many people have the misconception of understanding the facial skin. However, there skin of other body parts that needs care and attention equally.
