SwimSpray – Protect your hair from Chlorine (Win a bottle too!)

Summer is here and we have already had a few weeks of lovely sunny days.  I hope you have been enjoying. With holidays here and many of us making a renewed effort in the gym I heard about a new product called SwimSpray which you can use on your hair after the pool.  It’s available on Amazon. Inventor Andrew Chadeayne quickly stopped into the natural lounge to tell me about it.

Swinspray

So what is SwimSpray?
SwimSpray is the first product that eliminates residual chlorine from a swimmer’s hair and skin and has been on the market since 2010

Why did you decide to create it?
I invented SwimSpray because no other “swimmer’s shampoo” or “chlorine removal” product effectively washed away the residual chlorine film from my hair and skin.  The lingering chlorine irritated me.

How does it work?
SwimSpray uses a special formulation of vitamin C, which neutralizes residual chlorine.  You spray 30 sprays of SwimSpray on your hair and skin, then follow your normal shower routine.

You sound like a Swimmer then, How often do you swim?
I swim 4-5 times per week for about 60 to 90 minutes each time.

Wow, that’s quite a bit, no wonder you wanted the product, Do you use it every time?
Yes.  It’s one of the few things that I can’t stand to go without at the pool.  SwimSpray is about as important to me as my suit and goggles.

Is it specially formulated for a specific hair type?
No.  SwimSpray works for all hair and skin types.  However, people with long or dark hair seem to especially like SwimSpray.  Chlorine is extra hard on long dark hair.

Can it be used on children?
Yes. Just treat SwimSpray like you would any soap or shampoo, avoiding the eyes.  We recommend using SwimSpray on children over the age of 6 months.

Random Question  – Who are you supporting in the world cup and why?
I am cheering for the US, especially Seattle Sounder Clint Dempsey.

Hmm this product sounds interesting, Readers have you tried it before? How do you usually protect your hair in the pool? I hate Chlorine on my skin and hair, Andrew kindly left a couple of bottles with me to give away to win all you have to do is tell me “If I gave you the bottle, when and where would you use it?”

  1. I hate using swim caps, but chlorine is so drying that I end up wearing the caps. I hadn’t thought that there would be a product which could help counter the chlorine so I’d love to be able to try the swim spray. I’d use it after my weekly swimming sessions at my local pool.

  2. I am a regular swimmer, this product sounds interesting. I am avoiding the world cup like the plague…..go William sisters though in Wimbledon!

  3. I have recently begun to swim 5 days a week at 6:00 every weekday morning (this is the only time of day I can fit in regular excercise around the kids and husband)! I love swimming but have always been wary of the damaging effect of chlorine on my natural (4b/c) hair. On this occasion however, I\\\’m determined to find a solution because I absolutely must lose this excess weight! So far I\\\’ve tried cling film under my cap, double caps (very tight!) and last week I ordered special swim caps that completely cover your ears. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that these will work because at the moment I can literally feel the chlorine cutting off all the back of my hair! I would really appreciate having the opportunity to try out this new product.

  4. I so needed to find this! I swim 3 times a week and I have been scouring the internet and natural hair blogs looking for a solution. My natural 4a/b hair feels like a brillo pad if I don’t wear a swimming cap and just on Sunday a woman in the changing room felt the need to tell me I looked like an alien out of Star Trek with my swimming hat on and that I should abandon it! I wish I could! Like Tamika, I can literally feel the chlorine cutting and drying my hair. I’ve recently been smothering with coconut oil as recommended on many natural hair blogs, which then makes it a challenge for the swimming cap to stay on! The struggle is real! And who has time for an intense wash and deep condition every time they swim? Well if you have natural hair and you want to swim regularly, currently you need to make time. At least that’s my experience… On top of that I also have eczema and so this product would not only work wonders for my hair but for my skin also. I’d love the opportunity to try this product – I’ve been desperate to find something natural that is kind to my skin and hair.
