Swim Pre Treater/Shampoo/Conditioner- Reflect H2O Review
I have been a swimmer as long as I can remember, competitively since Age 6. I took a break following my college career- hence how I got up to 200+lbs- but for the most part always been in the pool. I have always had super sensitive skin. Since high school I have been dying my hair so I have tried everything to be sure to take care of my skin and my hair in the pool. As anyone knows a swimmer can be known to have green hair. I have had my issues with brass blonde over the years.
Reflect Sports sent me a bunch of samples of their pre-swim, shampoo and conditioner called Reflect H2O. Since lately my local pool had me itching like a drug addict before I could even get home, a 5 min drive, I was willing to try something new. My skin was crawling from the pool lately and I couldn't imagine what it was doing to my hair. I got up last week for my early morning swim snipped off the top of the pre-swim and ran it through my hair. It kind of left that leave in conditioner feel as I went to the pool.
I always swim with a cap, even with shorter hair. The pool was particularly murky this morning- the chemicals were all out of whack. I did my swim popped my cap off and my hair wasn't straw. I headed home to shower. The new Reflect H20 shampoo and conditioner- coupled with the pre-swim left my hair soft and I was missing the good old chlorine smell. I guess it is better to smell of my lotion and perfume than Eau du Chlorine anyway.
I have to say this combo worked better than any other swim shampoo/conditioner combo I have used before. I have even bought the expensive stuff at my salon. I have to say I love how Reflect Sports uses natural ingredients to achieve the desired outcomes in all their products! I put enough chemicals in my hair with the fact that I change color just about every time I get it done. I am excited to now have a set of products that can help keep my hair from being destroyed by the pool! Especially when the chlorine levels at this pool seem to be SUPER high!
I have a few more samples and I am doing a contest for a sample pack of the pre-swim, shampoo and conditioner. There will be 3 winners. I will do a contest leave a comment about your swimmer hair issues for an entry and for an additional entry tweet "I entered to win the @doubledathlete contest for the @reflectsports #noeauduchlorine #nomoregreen" with a link to this post. I'll throw all the entries in a random number generator and pick 3 winners on 31 Jan!
This is the samples I will send out :)
