Swim time with Sisterlocks…What Joy!!


PhotoGrid_1442371016391

Today was Kid’s Day at Locs of Luv. This little one has had her share of pool time, almost every day for the past three weeks to be exact. Her family recently purchased a home with a salt water swimming pool and the kiddos couldn’t wait to break it in. Salt water pools are much easier on Sisterlocks than chlorinated pools. Nevertheless, special attention still needs to be given to the locks before and after time in the pool. This little one has 4C type hair and has worn her hair in Sisterlocks for three years. Sisterlocks wearers that are still in the settling in phase should confirm with their consultant as to when their locks are ready for swimming. Before swimming the hair should be wet down with water, the water will help prevent some of the salt from being absorbed into the locks. This little ones wear a swim cap during swimming, the purpose for the swim cap is to keep the locks from moving around and experiencing the full pressure of the water. Another way to protect the Sisterlocks while swimming is to put the locks in a protective hair style such as cornrow braids. After swimming the locks should be shampooed and conditioned to keep the hair from becoming dry and more susceptible to breakage.  The hair should also be thoroughly dry before bedtime, sleeping with damp locks can cause the locks to mildew.  When swimming in chlorinated pools be sure to shampoo the hair with a shampoo specifically formulated to remove chlorine, follow with a conditioner. More and more parents are opting to get Sisterlocks for their little ones.  Please visit our Kids in Locks Category  and see some of our lovely little peeps.
