SWIMMING ESSENTIAL HAIR CARE: SWIMSPRAY PRODUCT REVIEW
This year, it was important for me to avoid all of the terrible things the chlorine does to our hair (dry, ashy, breaking, tangled, discoloration like green or orange hair, brittle, broken ends..I can go on). We've had so much progress with the health and length of our hair that we refuse to lose our length because we swim in a chlorinated pool weekly!
SwimSpray Product Review: Every Summer, we do not like getting out of the pool. We know that's when the real work starts. "Which section of my hair has knotted up?” I've tried a few shampoos (there aren't many on the market), but they all seem to have the same dangerous ingredients. In addition to that, they left my hair feeling dry, which is exactly what the chlorine did.
After some research, I found out that vitamin C is well known to remove chlorine. I figured I would squeeze some oranges onto our hair, but thought twice about the possible tangle problems. I did some online research and came across the SwimSpray website. They offer a product containing 2 simple ingredients:
2) Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Product Claims [according to website]:
Recommended Use: After swimming, rinse off in the shower (skin and hair). Next, spray SwimSpray on your hair and skin. Then shower normally with your favorite shampoo or soap (Rinse off the SwimSpray from your hair and body).
Next, I placed her in the shower, rinsed out the conditioner mix, and sprayed the SwimSpray product on the sections. I used my hands to ensure even distribution throughout the hair shaft. I left this on until I bathed her, then rinsed.
This product is stated to remove chlorine from the body as well, so it was ideal to have the product rinse from her hair onto her body. After rinsing out the SwimSpray product, I put an oil of my choice (avocado oil) on her hair, put it into 4 plaits, and her wash session was done! This process took about 25 minutes each night (bath and hair together).
NOTE: Because this product is Vitamin C, you may experience slight tingling (she only reported tingling on 1 area where she may have had a cut). Avoid contact with eyes.
Will We Purchase this Item?
Let's just put it this way.....Our Summer hair care arsenal will not be without SwimSpray! We need this product to maintain the health and length of our hair after swimming in our chlorinated pool.
For a 2.0 fl. oz the price is $8.95. I've paid less for products that do nothing but make the situation worse. I don't mind paying to avoid tangles! A little goes a long way, so a 2 oz bottle could last 1 person about a month. We used it daily for 2 weeks straight, most people will probably only need to use it about 3 times a week--if that.
