Ask The Makeup Diva
Welcome to Ask The Makeup Diva™! Our resident expert, The Makeup Diva, answers makeup and skin care questions sent in by readers just like you.

Q: Now that summer's here, I plan on doing a lot of swimming. What's a good product to protect my hair from all the chlorine? My hair is colored (red) and very curly.

A: Honestly, the very best hair protection you can invest in for swimming is a swim cap! I used to swim lots in the summer, and it really wrecks havoc on red-colored hair, so I got some adorable little swim caps. Look for cute ones at places that sell all sorts of beach gear.

If you don't want to go that route, look for a styling product with UV protection - I like Aveda's "Damage Control" spray or their thermal styling cream. I also hear that the Ouidad (pronounced we-dad) makes wonderful products to protect curly hair from sun and chlorine damage. Also, ask your stylist - they are usually very well versed in the perfect products for your hair type!
