Swimmers Wellness: Wellness Tips from Tom

Swimmers continue to look to us for solutions to their hair issues.  In years past, we as an industry sold clarifiers and purifiers because that was all that was available from professionals to their clients. Clarifiers and purifiers might be effective for removing product buildup, but the deepest cleansers with a high pH are not what swimmers need.  Swimmers do not have dirty hair; they have a buildup of minerals and oxidizers such as chlorine that will discolor, damage, and can cause breakage.

Products for swimmers were formulated with some of the harshest chemicals and some of the most aggressive cleansers. This did not make sense to us; we began researching the relationship between water and hair/skin issues in 1985 using patented technologies. Since that time, Malibu has become the leader for competitive and recreational swimmers using food-grade and fresh-dried ingredients.

Malibu C Crystal Gel Treatment has become the standard professional treatment used by salons worldwide to remove all the chlorine and minerals from swimmers’ hair. Up until 2007, the primary retail products available from Malibu to consumers were the Swimmers’ Action Shampoo and Conditioner, now our Swimmers Wellness line -- swimmers have long been at the forefront of Malibu’s dedication and research.

Malibu used our Crystal Gel technology and tweaked it with additional ingredients to create our wellness remedies, including Malibu C Swimmers Wellness Remedy. These easy-to-use packets are meant for use once per week, in the shower and in between shampoo and conditioner.

While the hair is wet, tear open the packet and pour all the ingredients into a wet palm. Rub wet palms together to form a white solution and apply it directly to the hair as you would a conditioner. By working the solution into the hair, it will create a rich lather, which will remove all the chlorine and minerals in one simple step. The end result is hair looking and feeling as if it was never exposed to pool or ocean water.  

We recommend you use the shampoo and conditioner every day, and the Wellness Remedy at least weekly. 

Malibu C guarantees immediate results with these superior products. For maximum results, we recommend a Malibu Makeover with the Crystal Gel in the salon, then the Wellness Remedy at the pool or home with the shampoo and conditioner.  

Educational tip: Chlorine is not the cause of GREEN hair.  Copper that is used in pools to control algae is the cause of GREEN hair.  Malibu Wellness removes the copper, calcium, magnesium, AND CHLORINE…naturally!
