Swimming with your Hair Extensions

Swimming with hair extensions does not have to be avoided as long as extra precautions are taken to prevent damage. There are many recommended ways to properly maintain the quality of the hair extensions, however, excessive chlorine can eventually take a toll on the hair. Many have recommended braiding the hair prior to swimming or wearing a swimmers cap to protect hair. Remember, virgin hair is human hair and may react differently with each situation. Swim at your own risk. Here are some useful tips to protect your hair extensions:

• Put conditioner in your hair before swimming. Rinse hair immediately after getting out of the pool to prevent any chlorine settling in the hair and cause further damage.

• To maintain a healthy moisturized look, make a leave-in conditioner at home by diluting conditioner (10%) with water (90%). Mix conditioner in a spray bottle and apply onto your hair then comb through.

• Avoid getting hair in salt water; it can strip all the moisture out of the hair causing it to tangle.

• Dry hair after swimming and make sure to completely dry the base of the head. Do not sleep with wet hair to  prevent mold and odor.
