11 Clarifying Shampoos to Save Your Strands After Swimming

While we’re big fans of those beachy waves that come from taking a dip in the ocean, the effect pools have on our hair is another story. Pools can cause hair to feel dry and brittle and sometimes even turn it green. That’s why clarifying shampoos are so important.

Clarifying shampoos are a year-round necessity if you’re a product junkie. But summer brings special concerns from all the time we spend in the water. If you’ve got blond locks, your biggest seasonal hurdle is trying to prevent that dreaded green tinge after swimming in chlorinated water. News flash: Chlorine is not the real culprit. It’s actually copper in the water that’s oxidized by chlorine that gives the less-than-desirable tint.

How often you treat your hair to clarifying shampoo depends on the nature of your strands. It’s best to stick to using one once or twice a week, but be careful if your locks are colored. Clarifying shampoos are great for prepping your hair before getting it colored, but they can wreak havoc on that new shade since they’ve been known to strip color.

If you’re planning to spend the rest of the summer underwater, you’ll need some good waterproof makeup and one of these clarifying shampoos that are real lifesavers for your strands.

Strokes of genius: the beauty and calm of wild swimming

From tranquility in the Lake District and Brecon Beacons to lovely lochs in the Cairngorms, six enthusiasts reveal their top spots for a wild swim

Suzanna Cruickshank
When I first moved to the Lake District I was a big walker but then I started swimming and realised all those feelings you get from climbing a mountain – the sense of peace, the satisfaction – you can get from swimming for five minutes in a lake. Swimming is a different way to appreciate the beauty of the area; it’s a view that you’re not sharing with anyone else because you’re on your own out there.

This Swim School Franchise Owner Proves; Yes, We ‘Own’ Swimming

It’s been an exciting year for Karese Cain, co-owner of a British Swim School franchise in Miami. Not only has she been profiled in the media—now she’s looking to expand after less than two years into the business.

For someone that never considered business ownership, Cain’s story is quite remarkable.

Taking the Dive into Franchising

 

The Howard University graduate started working at the British Swim School part-time for three to four years, where she met fellow instructor and future business partner, Maybelline Yurco. The Center that Cain and Yurco were managing and teaching at, was one of the top performing locations. To their surprise, the COO of the franchise informed them that the site was going to put up for sale, and wanted them to consider purchasing it.

Yurco, having had some previous business experience, was immediately excited about the opportunity and talked to her father about funding options. Cain, on the other hand, was quite apprehensive, as she had never considered the idea of being her own boss, or running a business. Just the idea of being able to pay herself and a business was daunting. But after further consideration, she felt the reward was more powerful than the risk. She believed in herself, her partner, and the franchise.

 

Selecting a Franchise That Represented Her Passion

 

There were several factors that helped push her over the “fear” line when purchasing the franchise, however, a few key points really stood out. The investment in the business was manageable, due to the model. British Swim School leverages local fitness centers, as well as public and private pool facilities to provide swimming classes. This keeps overhead costs low, and allows owners to grow the business by offering a variety of classes, at various sites, at various times.

Secondly, swimming is something she is passionate about. Cain’s mother first enrolled her in swimming classes in her home country of Jamaica when she was 2-years-old. She fell in love with the water, and grew up swimming competitively. She enjoys sharing her passion for swimming with others, and really connects with the franchises goal of enabling and empowering children to feel comfortable in the water, while being safe.

 

Cain’s Advice on Purchasing a Franchise

 

One might think that Cain gets surprised reactions from people when they find out she owns a swimming school. On the contrary! Because of the diversity of the community that surrounds them, close to half of her students are black. Yurco, who is also an immigrant, sees their ethnicity as a plus, as it helps both parents and children feel more comfortable, by combating many of the prejudice and stereotypes that surround swimming. In addition, as one of the very few minority owners, they garner a level of publicity that other owners don’t necessarily receive, which is always great for business. They are both excited to see more black and Hispanic owners investing in the franchise.

Cain has valuable advice for those considering purchasing a franchise business:

  • Do your due diligence
  • If you don’t have experience in a key piece of the business, consider bringing in a partner that has that experience
  • Consider working as an employee first. It’s an excellent way to learn the system and the company
  • Find a franchise that has a great operational support and owners network
  • If an opportunity arises, take it!

Sports instruction is a $ 5 billion industry, and is one of the fastest growing industries around—slated to grow at a rate between 3-5% this year. With the ability to teach classes all year round due to indoor and outdoor pool facilities, an owner of a swim school can gross over $ 1 million in sales annually. With the passion, expertise, and dedication Cain and Yurco have, I’d say they are well on their way.

Gold Medalist Simone Manuel Offers Advice on Swimming and Life

Simone Manuel

Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Simone Manuel is only 20-years-old. However, her history-making win at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games—where she became the first African American swimmer to win an individual Olympic Gold medal—has allowed her to become a voice of expertise when it comes to matters of swimming and, to some extent, life.

The Stanford University student is currently part of the USA Swimming Foundation’s “Make a Splash” initiative that, since 2007, has helped five million U.S. children learn to swim with free or low-cost swim lessons. The USA Swimming Foundation’s “Make a Splash” initiative partners with communities, learn-to-swim providers, and other national organizations to provide swimming lessons to children and families. Their goal is to reach one million children annually.

BLACK ENTERPRISE caught up with Manuel in a recent phone interview, where she discussed why she felt it necessary to participate in this initiative, as well as the importance of young people learning how to swim, aside from saving one’s life.

 

Insight From Simone Manuel

 

BLACK ENTERPRISE: Though an excellent skill to acquire, learning to swim can be a privilege for some, depending on where they live and what resources are available. However, you were able to learn how to swim by the time you turned age four. What can you say to parents and kids or teenagers about why swimming is a vital skill worth learning, especially at a young age?

Simone Manuel: I come from a very athletic family; my parents wanted their daughters to be engaged in sports.  It’s so vital to learn this sport; learning how to swim can save your life, and reduce the likelihood of you drowning by 88%. Swimming also allows kids to develop their social and communication skills and [teaches the value of] work hard and setting goals. I’ve learned a lot about myself and others [as a competitive swimmer]. Just being able to learn can make you a better swimmer, professional, or student.

 

BE: For even the most successful entrepreneur or professional, the potential for setbacks or failure will always be there. What advice do you have for readers on how to get back up to overcome challenges when things don’t go as planned?

SM: Remember the goal you had in the first place. You don’t always reach it the first time around, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up. I’m a firm believer in believing in the process; failure is part of success—if you don’t fail, you won’t [ever] know what success[truly] is.

BE: What keeps you grounded and focused?

SM: I feel like I was born to do the sport of swimming. However, when I was growing up, my parents would stress how swimming wasn’t all that defined me; it wasn’t the only thing that made me, me. My friends and school have helped to keep me grounded. I have other responsibilities, too. There are other components of my life that allow me to do more than just sit back and think about what I’ve done—I also think about what’s next.

 

BE: What’s the best advice you’ve received that you’d like to share with those in your age group?

SM: Always believe in your dreams, and protect that. Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do or be something, because you can if you are willing to work hard and fight for what you want.

Dog Forgot What Swimming Is, But Not What Talking Is

You may have seen that video going around of the dog that just doesn’t understand the concept of a pool.

Well, in case you were wondering what was going through that dog’s mind, the Internet is here to tell you, because the Internet has the power to tell us everything.

He just didn’t want to get his fur wet because he didn’t have any gel.

Plus, it would get all fluffy if it got wet. Gawd!
