Hooray!! It’s going to be a
gorgeous weekend in Arkansas! We really
need it after a long, cold winter.
Well, I know to those of you farther north, our cold is probably mild to
you…but…what can I say…we have thin blood here! So, anyway, this gorgeous weekend is just a taste of what’s to
come. Lake weather! Spending weekends at the lake is pretty
common here and we love it. I adore
days on the boat, eating at lakeside restaurants, lounging in the water, gazing
at so many stars at night, roasting marshmallows by the campfire….it’s just
heaven to me. I have to thank my late
father for designing and building a wonderful lake house to leave to his child
and grandkids. It is a wonderful gift
that will keep giving for generations.
So, because of the impending warmer weather, I decided it was time for a
change and got a hair cut!
Reflect H2O also has a pre-swim product that you
can apply to your hair before you swim either in chlorine or salt water that
will protect your hair from the effects of the water and sun. My daughter, a former competitive swimmer
and now a dolphin trainer at SeaWorld, swears by it! And her hair proves how great this product is! It’s healthy, silky and soft. When she comes home, she always takes
several bottles back to Florida with her!
DermaSwimPro is a pre-swim lotion that you can
apply to your skin to keep the chlorine off your skin completely! It makes you super slippery and works like a
charm. I have lots of customers who
Swim Spray is a relatively new product that it
based on citrus extracts and it neutralizes the chlorine. This is to be used after you get out of the
water and before you shower. It can be
used on your hair and body.
If you are having problems with your hair from the effects
of chlorine and/or salt and sun I have a few tips for you:
1. Of course, use high quality chlorine out products before
and after you swim.
2. Wear a cap! Even
though you hair may still get wet, having that protection is key!
3. Wash your hair as soon as you get out of the water. This tip is critical. Don’t let the chlorine
or salt water dry in your hair. Get it
out before it dries!
Swimsuits don’t have to be washed. The manufacturers recommend that you rinse
your suit in cool water and hang to dry.
They do not recommend you machine wash suits or use any detergent on
suits, but instead, if you feel they need to be washed, you need to use a
swimsuit cleaner designed for swimsuits.
We have those! I personally
recommend that you soak your suit in a sink with a capful of Speedo Swimsuit
Cleaner, then hang to dry. That will
keep you suit in tip top shape.
So, that’s all for today!
I hope you have a fantastic weekend at home, the lake, the beach or
where ever this great weekend takes you!
