Who said you or your little ones can’t swim with open hair? Indeed you can! You just need to take a bit more care. You don’t have to stand by the side of the pool watching others have a good time in the water just because you have open hair. Here is how you swim with open hair, whether you have natural or relaxed hair:
1. Use TCB Naturals Leave-In Treatment
Before swimming, coat your hair with TCB naturals leave-In Treatment. Our wonder product contains a unique blend of Shea Butter & Coconut Oil which deeply moisturizes & nourishes your hair. Your open hair will be in good hands! Our 200ml portable version is perfect because it fits perfectly in your bag. What it does, is that it will create a barrier between your hair and the elements and prevents it from drying due to Chlorine/Salty water. Don’t be shy! Be generous and load up on product.
2. Stretch To Protect
Swimming has the tendency to make the hair shrink. After applying TCB Naturals Leave-In Treatment, wear your hair in some chunky braids or twists. This ensures that your open hair remains stretched while swimming, to avoid shrinkage.
3. Wear A Swimming Cap
You might want to consider wearing a good swimming cap to further protect your hair. It is not necessary but it goes a long way!
4. After Care
If possible, wash your hair after hitting the pool or the ocean and apply TCB Leave-In Treatment to re-moisturize the hair. Finish off with the TCB Naturals Nourishing Hair Food. Why? It improves hair health by protecting it and preventing dryness. Also, due to its non-liquid format, it stays for longer on the hair/scalp providing all-day moisturization benefits.
