Calling All Curly Mermaids! 🌊
Summer Curl Tip:
Planning on going swimming? Make sure to protect your curls!
- Always wash & condition your hair after swimming, especially in pools with chlorine and other chemicals. Chlorine can be super drying and create brittle tresses.
- Adding an extra deep conditioning treatment to your monthly routine is also suggested if you spend your summer days swimming! Adding extra hydration will help recover moisture lost from swimming in chlorine and salt water.
- Oil and water don't mix! Adding a small amount of oil to your hair before swimming has two benefits! Oils such as coconut oil, sunflower oil, olive oil will provide some protection for your hair and scalp from UV rays! Also, the oil will lock in moisture and create a barrier to keep pool water from drying out your hair. Make sure to limit the oil to a small amount, we don't want layers of oil floating near us at the public pool! Putting hair in braids or a bun helps too!
