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.

It’s okay

The product all are unique on their own. However, they did not work well for my hair, the oil products left my hair feeling very greasy and the leave in conditioner left my hair feeling very mucky. I’m sure these products are meant for someone else, but not me. I will not be purchasing again.

Great moisturiser!

Can’t recommend this milk enough, it works a treat. Since having a baby I’ve had really dry hair/scalp and this works perfectly. Love that it’s natural stuff. I use the children’s version on my son too. Really recommend!

Wonderful products ❤️❤️👌🏾👌🏾

This product is essential for detangling my daughters curly hair. Would highly recommend it.

Great

This is super... as with most things it doesn’t perform miracles... You have to be committed and do it properly and have some long term investment in this product for it to truely work... take pictures and monitor your progress.. it’s quite and easy and the results so far have been great ... My edges have become stronger and fuller over the last 12 months :)
