Repost: Swimming & Hair Care

The Sun is out, and summer is on it's way! Of course, the kids want to cool off in the water. 
Here are some tips on how to protect your little one's hair while swimming.

Before Swimming:

-Apply a leave in conditioner to the hair. This will add a protective barrier against chlorine/salt.

- Purchase a swimming cap, this will also protect the hair.

-Wet your hair with clean water prior to going into the pool, this will help to stop your hair from absorbing chlorine.

After Swimming:

This is the most important step
 -Make sure to immediately wash your hair with a sulfate shampoo to remove the chlorine and apply a conditioner.

Great tips for these hot summer months. I struggle with consistency when it comes to making my curly gurlz wear their swim caps. I def make sure I soak their hair with conditioner & water and shampoo with a clarifying shampoo. I follow with a conditioner and then saturate their strands and ends with my shea butter mixture. I also oil their edges for reinforcement :)
