Swimmers hair and dry skin, two unfortunate side-effects of swimming. A swimmer's hair can get dry, brittle, and take on a greenish tint - swimmers hair! Swimmers can also suffer from dry skin from long exposure to the water or chemicals while swimming. These shampoos, conditioners, and skin care products could help swimmers combat the damage done by the pool.
Triswim makes several swimmer-focused products that all help to keep hair and skin safe from the damaging effect of fresh water, chlorine, or salt water. The family of Triswim products do what they are intended to do, and they do it very well. After a month of testing, the swimmers that have used the Triswim shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion say things like "I want more of this" and "my hair has not been this soft since I began swimming."
Touch Out Sports
Touch Out Sports, a small, family owned and operated business, makes hair care products that are well worth a try if you are looking for something to help your hair after your swim. While not very different from other swimmer-focused hair care products, Touch Out Sports products are as good as any other we have tested.
Summer Solutions makes 6 products to help clean and protect swimmers' hair, body, and swim suits.
