Summer Hair for Curly Girls


My Curly girl LOVES to swim but the chlorine and salt water is turning her hair stringy and dry.  I know she needs some good products to hydrate but I am afraid to use too much product since she has fine hair and I don’t want to weigh it down.  What can we do to get the chlorine and salt water out of her hair without weighing it  down and bring back her natural curls and bounce?  Would love to hear your best advice for Summer Hair for Curly Girls!

Curly Girl Hair Tips Answer By Jarely of Faith in Curls: 
Hi, I recommend using Malibu Swimmers Shampoo and Conditioner. This will be safe to use and help gently remove the chlorine and salt that may build up on her hair from swimming so much.
Since her hair is fine, to style it you should use not so much product. You should be styling it with a small amount of product and make sure the hair is wet so that it dilutes the product. Then it shouldn’t be crunchy. And if it is then you’ll need a better quality product.
