Vacation is in the air, I can already envision myself basking in the sun, being carefree and of course spending lots of time in the pool. Lets discuss how we can minimize the damage we may experience from the chlorine with these preemptive measures.
Begin with a protective barrier, using any liquid product such as a Leave in or Hydration spray. Spray along the length of your hair (even if you're wearing braids) then follow up with coconut oil.
Adding a coat of Coconut oil will aid in minimizing chlorine water penetration. Coconut oil is preferred because it has been shown to offer natural SPF . In other words, coconut oil absorbs some of the sun's radiation and reduces the potential damage.
After dipping in the pool, it's time to clarify and remove the chlorine buildup from your hair. Using our Black Soap Herbal Shampoo will help remove build up and aid in the detangling process if your strands become tangled from swimming.
For loose natural hair, follow up with a our Coco Lemon AntiBacterial Conditioning Whip. Use a generous amount to detangle your hair with a wide tooth comb and let conditioner sit for 3-5 mins before rinsing.
For locs, follow up our Coco Lemon antibacterial conditioning whip. Distribute the conditioner along the ends of your locs, pin up and let sit for 3-5 minutes. Squeezing locs when rinsing to ensure they are fully clean.
Towel dry then hydrate, seal and style as needed. Satin or silk scarves for bed, every night. Even while you're on vacation. :)
