When I spoke to my friends, they all said the same thing. My friends with afros or weaves had to stuff their hair into two caps, one friend said the latex rubbed off her edges.
I suddenly thought about designing a hair protection product that would enable everyone to swim and ultimately improve their health. I decided to make my own cap.
Fast forward through the design and development stage I present to you a unique silicone rubber headscarf, easy to use, fits various voluminous hairdos and comes in five colours.
I am proud to say it is the first inclusive swimming headscarf with black women in mind.
Having said that my product turns out to be bang on trend with long extensions being so popular amongst all cultures at the moment.
I want to get women of all hair types and backgrounds into the pool. I’m excited to give women, girls and teens the opportunity to feel included at the pool and not to dread what their swimming lessons will do to their hair, like I did. If my Swimscarf will let women swim with confidence, not with self-consciousness or worry, I will have succeeded in my project.
Thank you so much for all the support. Sign up to my mailing list and follow my social media for updates for our new and improved Swimscarf.
