Hi There! I am Sisi, I would like to warmly welcome to my Blog! Here i share great information and valuable tips that will help you maintain your self, your life and become a better version of yourself!,

Or  you can try this hair formula which i think targets more hair problems. I helped me and I hope this tip helps you dear 💕.

Now that we've got that out of the way, let's continue!

Summer has arrived, and we couldn’t be happier. Growing up in Los Angeles, I never missed a summer without going to the beach, and this was no problem before I started getting my hair pressed. However, once I started pressing my hair, as many Black women do at some time in their lives, the water became my worst enemy, SWIMMING WITH NATURAL HAIR.

Now that I’m natural, getting back in the pool is a possibility, but there are some precautions to take to protect your curls and coils when swimming.

Conditioner should be applied to your hair.

This is a fun tactic that many naturals employ. Not only will putting conditioner before entering the water assist to hydrate and moisturize your hair, but it will also prevent your hair from absorbing any further conditioner. The advantage is that you’ll end up with less chlorine in your hair because your hair won’t be able to absorb it.

I recommend utilizing this method if you are swimming in a pool rather than the ocean because we don’t want to add any chemicals to the oceans, even if your goods are all-natural.

Hair should be oiled.
The fact that oil and water do not mix was one of the first things we learnt in science class. Putting oil in your hair before swimming is similar to putting conditioner in your hair; the water should bounce straight off. As with the conditioner, it’s preferable to apply this in a pool to avoid getting oil in the ocean.

Before you go swimming, don’t wash your hair.
This is a personal choice, but because you’ll most likely be washing your hair after you swim, there’s no need to go through a complete wash day just before you know you’ll be swimming. Swimming in salt water is also a no-no because salt may dry out your hair just as much as chlorine. After you’ve swum, schedule a relaxing wash day.

Invest in a swim cap that is curly-friendly.
Chlorine, as previously stated, dries out hair. If your hair is already dry, you should avoid drying it out even more. It’s tempting to image your curls swaying freely in the pool, lake, or ocean, but our curls are vital, and keeping them healthy is a major responsibility; a swim cap is a terrific method to accomplish just that.

We put forth a lot of effort all year to ensure that our hair is healthy and preserved, and summer should be no exception. After last year, we all deserve a fun-filled summer; just remember to keep your hair healthy while doing so.

 

Unfortunately, during the harshest period of segregation, regulations prohibiting Black people from using community pools have resulted in a stupid caricature and a million horrible jokes. But there’s another problem that has nothing to do with the law: hair. Men and boys can confidently enter a lake or the ocean, but after the time-consuming task of straightening natural hair, who wants to risk ruining it by swimming? Even advances like relaxers haven’t made much of a difference. If you’ve spent hours styling your hair or paid someone to do it for you, spoiling it with a swim in the pool isn’t a good idea.

Today, however, many women are overcoming their fear of water, thanks to the burgeoning natural movement. There will be no more escaping the weather or avoiding the pool at a pool party. You don’t have to be a natural swimmer to enjoy swimming. Yes, swimming consistently will require extra upkeep and maintenance of your hair, but with a little care and planning, everyone should be able to swim worry-free. Whether you swim every day or just once in a while throughout the summer, sticking to a routine developed for swimmers helps maintain your hair healthy and not dry.

 

Put on a Swimming Cap.

Thank heavens, swimming hats have come a long way! The old hats didn’t even do a good job of keeping the hair dry in the first place. Swim hats today are far more diversified, and some are even fashionable. Fit is still hit-or-miss, and you can’t always try on a cap before purchase to see if it’s snug and secure. It’s absolutely up to you whether or not you wear a cap; if it doesn’t keep all the water out, there’s no use in wasting money on one.

Before you go swimming, wet your hair. In the pool, a woman with wet hair
If you want to swim bare-headed, make sure your hair is totally damp before entering the pool or the ocean. Only use fresh tap water instead of conditioner. Running it under water keeps your hair from absorbing as much chlorine, other chemicals, and salt as if you dipped it entirely dry.

Before going to the pool, braid or twist your hair.

Because long, natural hair can easily tangle when wet, twist or braid your tresses in multiple sections before entering the water. It’s not required, but it will make detangling your mane easier when it’s time to wash it after a day of fun in the sun. “To keep the hair from getting too tangled,” Carrillo explains, “I usually do a high bun/ponytail, a braid, or two French braids.”

Cleanse your hair by rinsing it with clean water.

After you’ve finished swimming for the day, thoroughly rinse your hair with clean water. This is especially crucial if you won’t be able to wash your hair for a few hours after your swim—you need to get any salt or chemicals out of your hair as soon as possible to avoid damage.

Use conditioner to wash your hair.

If you swim frequently, shampooing after each swim isn’t the ideal option: you don’t want to overclean your hair. Co-washing is a secure option. Concentrate on washing the scalp while preserving moisture and rinsing your hair thoroughly with clean water. Carrillo explained to me, “If I’m going to swim several times in a day (for example, on vacation), I’ll rinse it thoroughly and clean it with cleansing conditioner rather than shampoo. Then, to protect the hair for the next day, apply a mask and jojoba oil mixture. If I don’t go swimming, my hair will be hydrated and ready to style.”

Also, as necessary, use a clarifying shampoo.

Even women who don’t normally use clarifying shampoo should do so during the swimming season. Even if you swim frequently, you don’t need to use them very often. The recommended time frame is still once a month. While swimming in a chlorinated pool, these specialist cleansers eliminate buildup from products and chemicals that coat your hair.

Take advantage of a deep conditioner.

Because the sun and chemicals can be drying to your mane, conditioning after each swim is essential. However, depending on how frequently you swim, you may need to increase deep conditioning to once or twice a week. Look for conditioners that are developed for dry and damaged manes, are hydrating, and are normally recommended for Black hair textures. “Use a conditioner or hair mask and add a little jojoba oil into the mixture,” Carrillo says, to help keep your hair moisturized.

Lock-In Moisture With a Leave-In Whether you choose a liquid leave-in that keeps your curls light and bouncy or a creamier formula that coats your strands and prevents future damage on a deeper level, use leave-in conditioners after each cleansing/co-wash session for added moisture.

Protein Should Be Included

If your hair is dyed and/or relaxed, you’ll need to use protein treatments to keep it healthy. It’s best to stick to a regimen to avoid needing emergency treatment. Using products like Joico’s Defy Damage Protective Masque ($22) or Olaplex No. 3 ($28) a couple of times per month helps to maintain your hair healthy. Even if your hair is completely natural, using protein on a regular basis will assist to keep it strong.

Carrillo recommends, “Make sure you don’t go to bed with your hair damp from swimming.” Going to bed with damp hair results in knotted hair that is difficult to manage in the morning, as well as an unpleasant odor. To avoid damage to your tresses, blow dry your hair if necessary and sleep on a satin pillowcase like one from Slip.
