As the warmer weather approaches,
We get it... of course you still want to have amazing hair for those pool side shots.
So, can you swim in your Halo?
The simple answer... YES!
Her Halo Hair is 100% human hair. However, there are definitely good practices to keep in mind when swimming with them.
We can't guarantee that it won't damage them - BUT we can give you all the tips on how to best prevent any damage.
1. BRAID OR PLAIT YOUR HALO - If you are going to be swimming for a long time, braid your hair before you get in so it won't get too tangled.
2. GETTING OUT TANGLES. If it does become tangled, be extremely gentle when brushing them out. I usually put some conditioner or de-tangler on them first and then I use a Wet Brush and start at the ends. Remember that when a hair breaks on your own head, it can eventually repair itself but on extensions that is not the case. So try to be gentle with them.
3. CHLORINE. When going in a pool with chlorine be aware that chlorine will damage your extensions just like it will the hair on your head!. So always get your halo wet first before hopping in a chlorinated pool, as this will prevent it from soaking up too much chlorine.
4. WANT A DIFFERENT STYLE?. Sometimes you don't want to have it braided and just want to have your hair down. Who else loves the feeling of swimming with your hair down and feeling like a mermaid? If you don't want to braid it, brush it really throughly beforehand and make sure there are no tangles. You can also bring a little conditioner and put it on the ends before or during your swim.
5. TO WASH OR NOT TO WASH? There are options.. I know this is probably gross but I don't like to wash mine after! I love how they naturally dry after being in the ocean or in the pool. They dry wavy and have a good texture to them. If this isn't your style and you are worried at all about the chlorine, give them a light rinse with Shampoo & Conditioner after.
