Shampoo For Swimming

Post by Emelyn » Mon Oct 19, 2009 10:23 am

Hi parents,

My daughter has been doing swimming for 1 yr. Her hair is very dry and it is really a challenge to comb her straight. They are not curly though, very straight. But, always entangled to gether. I believe it is the result of swimming.

Can anyone recommend hair product for little girls ? She is 5yo.

Regards

hi

Start by using shampoo that is suitable after swimming such as the L'oreal swim shampoo and also use a swimming cap to protect the hair from sun and chlorine.

As for the dry hair, you probably need to trim off the dry ends.

Hi Lucky,

Thanks for the advice. I have never thought of getting her a swimming cap. Thanks for the enlightenment !

L'oreal has a kids range of hair products, some for after sun and swim use, some for daily use. They may cost more than other kids brands but they are worth it. (Note: L'oreal is not paying me for this. :wink: I'm just saying from experience.)

Post by Happybirdks » Sun Apr 04, 2010 11:05 pm

Hi all

Apart from the California Baby Swimmer's Defense Shampoo/Bodywash, is there any other brands which are available?

If yes, where can we get them?
