Originally developed by Philip Kingsley at the request of the first US Olympic Synchronised Swimming Team in 1984, Swimcap’s formula is both a summer saviour and a must-have for swimmers.. Containing UV protection, Swimcap cream protects against the damaging effects of the sun which leads to hair breakage and colour fading, making it a holiday essential for healthy, beautiful hair. It also protects against the drying and damaging effects of both chlorinated and salt water, as well as discolouration from swimming pool water. Swimcap deeply conditions your hair as you wear it, leaving it in better condition than before. For use on wet hair.
