I love to get wet and want to protect all of my own hair. What's the best type of extension for swimming (other than braids)?

IMO I would say (uncolored and unprocessed) hair is the best. I would not be a fan of trying out even a steam curl in a pool or ocean, unless I steamed it myself.

Here are some useful tips to protect your hair extensions:

• Put conditioner in your hair before swimming. Rinse hair immediately after getting out of the pool to prevent any chlorine settling in the hair and cause further damage.

• To maintain a healthy moisturized look, make a leave-in conditioner at home by diluting conditioner (10%) with water (90%). Mix conditioner in a spray bottle and apply onto your hair then comb through.

• Avoid getting hair in salt water; it can strip all the moisture out of the hair causing it to tangle.

• Dry hair after swimming and make sure to completely dry the base of the head. Do not sleep with wet hair to  prevent mold and odor.
