Afro/Curly Hair Swim Tips
I hope you've had a great week and managed to catch some of the sun we’ve been having! Doesn't all this sun make you want to cool off? Well, don’t fret! We have some tips on how to protect your hair whilst you take a dive into the pool for a swim!
1. Wear a swimming Cap- This may be obvious, but afro and curly hair textures do not mix well with chlorine. Especially if you've taken the plunge (pun absolutely intended) to colour your hair this summer! In the pool, it can cause damage and, in the seawater, it can cause dryness. Both of which you’d want to avoid at all costs! A swim cap is essential but you should also add another barrier of protection...
2. Pre-soak- Oil and water are also a no-go combo. So, its important you make sure you soak your hair at least 2 hours before swimming or, preferably, overnight in hair-loving golden Olive Oil. Extra virgin is best! Our Grow-it-long Scalp Serum can be used for this too.
3. Condition - Adding a conditioner to your hair also enhances another the layer of protection onto your hair and under your swim cap. This helps create an anti-chlorine effect. Our Comb-Out Cowash can be used for this.
4. Protective hairstyles – A simple French braid hairstyle will help prevent tangling once you are out of the water. Although any type of protective hairstyle is an added step of protection when swimming, simple braids and twists make it easier for your swimming cap to fit on your head.
