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.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I first came across this product in a glossy box a few years back and fell in love with it, so I had to come and get the full size. It makes my hair feel soooo soft, completely moistures it and is very easy to use. The spray nozzle is great and distributes a lot of product. Definitely a staple for my hair.

Amazing Product

I love it! Like to use it all over my hair before I start my LOC method. Keeps my hair moistured and protected. I like the consistency and it works well with other products.

Game changer

This product has been a game changer in my LO’s hair so far . I really do hope it has come to stay for us cause I’m really blown away by the results in just few days of use .. Thank you for an awesome product

My scalp loves it

I have sensitive scalp areas on my head. But had no issues using the product.
