Afro/Curly Hair Swim Tips

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!

Black woman posing in swimsuit1. Wear a swimming CapThis 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...

Root2Tip Grow-it-long scalp serum product2. 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.

Root2Tip Comb-Out Cowash product 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.

Happy Customer

Bought this product for my 8mth old. Was on a search for something that agrees with her sensitive scalp,and already thick hair.I am loving it 😍 will definitely be buying again 😁

My scalp tingled with delight!

From the second I put this on my hair it felt amazing, my scalp came alive and I could really feel the product working on my scalp, even after rinsing it out. The fragrance is perfect and the foam level is really good, I was quite surprised by how little I needed to achieve a lot of foam. My hair (Type 4c) looks and feels great, no breakage, feels soft and is glossy. I normally dread washing with shampoo as my hair has to "recover" from being stripped of its oils but not today, I felt like something was added for a change. I followed the shampoo, with the Detangling leave-in conditioner but to be honest I could have got away without it as it was so conditioned by the shampoo alone. No tugging, no breakage, it was a dream. Excellent product 11 out of 10!

Scalp Serum

Only managed to use this product once, unfortunately I couldn't bear the smell. But the product itself is good and not too oily for my hair.

Daily nourishment

I use Triple M Moisture Milk daily for my short natural hair and it works great to define the texture of my hair. It is light and does not leave my hair clammy.

Energizer Scalp Oil

Lightweight oil. Not to heavy on the hand and hair. Easy use and doesn't have a bad smell to it. Using continuously as results will show at a later stage.Happy with it so far.
