Basil Yankoglu, stylist and owner of Basil’s Hair Design, has long seen the negative effects of chlorine on hair. The Raleigh stylist recently decided to do something to help his clients fight the damage from chlorine with his new DChlorin8 leave-in conditioner.
“As a hairdresser for the past 35 years, I was noticing that clients were coming in with increasingly damaged, dry, easily tangled hair; color was not taking as well as it should,” he says. “This is due to increasing amounts of chlorine and minerals in our water. I am talking about the water in your house as well as a pool. DChlorin8 is all natural, lightweight and it smells great. I don’t know of another leave-in conditioner that exfoliates, detangles and conditions in one.”
The detangler helps remove mineral deposits caused by chlorine to keep hair soft, shiny and manageable.
“Swimmers know more than anyone else the drying effects of chlorine; it makes the hair much more porous leaving it susceptible to damage and mineral deposits,” says Yankoglu. “It’s the minerals that make your hair turn different colors. People with gray hair often get a dull yellowish cast. When I have someone with gray hair in my chair, I will spray half of their head with DChlorin8 and within minutes, they can see a marked difference in the two sides. One side is bright and the other yellowish. They no longer need to use the blue or purple shampoos to combat the dulling.”
Never miss a local story.
Yankoglu’s detangler can be found at dchlorin8.com, at Yankoglu’s Raleigh salon (811 Hodges St.) and several other salons in the area (full list available at the website).
