      Put your swim cap on, we're going in!

      I bought a beauty box which had a tube of Swimcap cream in it and I was really pleased as I love swimming but hate what it does to my hair. On holiday if I can get away with it I put conditioner in my hair and tie it up in a Bun so it gets a treatment whilst I swim and bake in the sun. (With high factor and shade of course). I was happy to give swimcap cream a try out as it fitted my needs exactly.

      What is it?
      Help your hair survive the natural enemies that stalk it in the summer with SWIMCAP CREAM from Philip Kingsley. For swim and sun protection, Swimcap Cream is water resistant and protects against dryness and damage caused by chlorine and salt. It also helps prevent discolouration and colour fade by filtering out harmful rays of the sun. Swimcap is a super conditioner and protects both hair and scalp.

      How to use it
      •Dampen hair and apply in sections.
      •Comb through for even distribution.
      •Re-apply if swimming frequently.
      •Shampoo out with appropriate Philip Kingsley Shampoo for your hair type.

      In use
      This is easy to lather on/ I tend to focus on my lengths and ends more than the scalp, It smells clean and inoffensive. I don't think it's a particularly good look but with my hat and sunglasses on I don't really care what my hair looks like during the day. I just don't want it to be like straw at night time! It is just a white cream like conditioner that goes a long way.

      My thoughts
      We use sun protector on our skin so why not protect hair too. This was particularly good for days on the beach and in the sea but also by the pool. My hair definitely felt better after using this product. It left my hair feeling nice and soft and tangles were kept at bay.

      Final word
      I don't know if this is a lot better than other normal conditioners left in to 'soak' but at £22 for 150ml it is rather expensive. I like it but doubt I will buy another at that price. I also wonder how much good it does the swimming pool as your product floats off your head and in to the water... it does suggest you reapply the product if you're in the water a lot! Hmm...
