A GUIDE TO SWIMMING WITH CURLY HAIR

A GUIDE TO SWIMMING WITH CURLY HAIR

Rinse beforehand.

Before you step in, rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water. Think of it this way; if you place a dry sponge in a bucket of water, it will absorb the water until it is completely soaked. But if you place a wet sponge in a pool of water, it will only absorb a small quantity of water. It's much better to let the hair shaft absorb non-chlorinated water than to jump in dry and fill it with toxins.

Jump in with a Deep Conditioner on.

Chlorine is great for pools, but it can wreak havoc on curls because it's so drying. Chlorine isn’t good for any hair type, but it's even worse for curly hair that's naturally drier than straight hair.  Before indulging in a 4th of July swim, coat  your hair (wet or dry) with a deep conditioner like REPAIR YOU by BLNDN. ($48) Curly hair is porous, so deep conditioner will occupy those holes before the chlorine can move in.

Use a leave-in.

Salt water dehydrates curls almost immediately, so if you're at the beach, apply a leave-in conditioner  (like BLNDN's SAVE YOU) from mid to ends to protect yourself.

Wash and condition with sulfate-free products like BLNDN.
After swimming,  wash your hair immediately with a shampoo and conditioner  that are free of harmful sulfates (like BLNDN's) to remove any drying chlorine or salt water. 

    Follow these tips to make sure you don't miss out on any summer fun, babes!
