Yes, you can swim and do activities with your NBR™ Hair Extensions. We suggest wearing it in a loose braid or ponytail and brushing with a wet brush and leave-in conditioner every time you get out of the water.
Here are the recommended steps:
- Choose the Right Extensions: Not all hair extensions are equally suited for swimming. If you intend to swim frequently, it’s essential to understand the limitations of the hair extensions you choose to wear. If you are not sure, please seek advice from a hair extension professional.
- Pre-Swim Preparation: Saturate your hair with a professional, pH-balanced leave-in conditioner before swimming. This step helps protect the extensions from the damaging effects of chlorine and saltwater. Ask about the best leave-in conditioner available today!
- Be Mindful of Chlorine: Chlorine can be highly damaging to natural hair and extensions, stripping hair of its natural oils and leaving it dry and brittle. If swimming in a chlorinated pool, limit your time in the water and rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water afterward.
- Consider Your Sunscreen: While sunscreen is crucial for protecting your skin and hair while swimming, some products contain an ingredient called avobenzone that can discolor hair extensions. Be mindful of the sunscreen you use when swimming with extensions.
Remember, while swimming with hair extensions is possible, it requires careful attention and the right approach to ensure they look their best. If you have any concerns, it’s recommended that you consult with a hair extension professional.
