So, the next time we went swimming, I sprayed her hair with water, then added some SheaMoisture Hold n Shine spray, and added some SheaMoisture smoothie for some protection from the sun and pool water. I braided her hair into 3 braids and twisted each on into a bun for even further protection.
So, when D goes swimming I typically spray her hair with water, then add some coconut oil for some protection from the sun and pool water. I, also try to do some type of quick/easy protective style with her hair if it is not already in a style. Our go to style has been 3 braids each twisted into a bun to provide that extra protection.
After swimming I spray her hair with a baking soda/water mix then rinsed after a few minutes. The purpose of this is to cleanse the hair without over drying it. If your kid is like mine she swims almost everyday, shampooing everyday can dry the hair out, but it needs to be cleansed of the pool water. Once I rinsed that solution out I condition, then follow up with some moisturizer. This will pretty much be our hair care procedure before and after swims this summer. What is yours?
