Summer Swimming Tips for Curly Hair!

Will my curly hair be affected if I swim in chlorinated water or in salt water at the beach? 

Yes! Yes! Yes!

If you plan on swimming, then you definitely want to DRENCH your hair with warm water in the shower before getting in the pool.  Think of your hair like a sponge. If you place a wet sponge in a pool of water, it cannot absorb more water - same theory with hair.  Drenching your hair with water means the hair shaft is swollen and can't absorb either the chlorinated water or salt water.

After your hair is saturated with tap water, apply a quality conditioner designed for dry hair and leave it in! Make sure to coat the ends, roots and scalp.  After swimming, rinse out your hair thoroughly (at least 3-5 minutes) and use a cleansing conditioner.

What conditioner and cleansing conditioner do we recommend?? I'm glad you asked!  In September, Bounce Curl will be releasing a line of new products - INCLUDING a fabulous Vitamin-Enriched Super Smooth Cream Conditioner and Vitamin-Enriched Hydra Drench Cleansing Conditioner!  With at least 20 different natural plant extracts and oils in each of these products, you will fall in LOVE with how your hair looks and feels! Stay tuned! We will have product release information and ordering information for our new line of Bounce Curl shampoos and conditioners very soon!  We are so excited to share these new products with you!

Created with a genuine and pure heart!

    Would you prefer the tea or vitamins. I have tried taking biotin before and broke out. I was taking a high dosage. I am wondering if it is safe to take the vitamins I do want to try it..

    Hey Jazmin,
    Our vitamins are truly amazing! If you have acne prone skin it is very important to monitor your Biotin intake. We have had great feedback for our vitamins and we believe they may be worth giving a try :)

    People need to be careful coating their hair in conditioner before entering the ocean. Here in oz we it’s a big no no as it’s affecting the reef. We only recommend Reef safe only products. Might be a product worth looking into.
