Can You Swim With Crochet Braids?

Share this

Swimming With Crochet BraidsBeing that crochet braids have become a popular protective hairstyling option for many naturals, I am sure some of you are wondering “Can I wear this style for vacation?”. Well, it all depends on the type of hair that you use for your crochet braids.

If you went for the trendy twist out look using a marley hair curled with rods and dipped in hot water, your style is most likely going to be destroyed if you try swimming in it. Not to mention it will also be uncomfortable and too heavy.

Never fear naturalista! All hope is not lost. You can still have the joy of flaunting some awesome crochet braids on your vacay, you just have to go with a different hair type that can handle wear and tear from swimming.

The Freetress Bohemian brand is a better choice if you need a hair that can withstand going in and out of the pool. If your hair texture is not on the wavier side of things, you should do a full crochet braid install rather than leaving some hair out to avoid spending too much time blending your hair texture with the synthetic hair. Remember this is your vacation time! Make things as easy and hassle free as possible, you deserve a breather.

  1. Can you go swimming with presto curl 26″ curls and the brand name is FreeTress

    1. Yes, the curly synthetic hair holds up good after swimming.

  2. i’m going on holiday to Spain, i wasn’t sure of what hairstyle i should do between model model super french crochet braids or box braids. what will be the pros and cons of these hairstyles.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this, I will definitely be trying out this hair for my upcoming trip!! I do have a couple of questions though! I will be on the island for 10 days and I pretty much plan on being in the water( beach or pool) everyday so would I have to wash my hair every single day or could I get a way with every other day? Also, I am still a lot confused about what a shampoo net is. I’ve tried googling it but no help there. Is it literally just like a hairnet?? How does it help to lessen frizz?

  4. Freetress Loose Deep and Deep Twist hair – can you swim with this hair?

    1. Yes, you should definitely be fine with this. The only hair I wouldn’t recommend is marley hair that has been curled with rods, as it will destroy the style.
