Preparation for Swim Lessons
Enter the pool area and make sure to sign in for swim lessons. Locker rooms and small towels are available. I recommend bringing your own towel and lock. Long hair needs to be secured or tucked into a swim cap. Please bring goggles.
Easy Way to Protect Skin and Hair from Chlorine
- Shower before entering pool (entire body including your hair).
- Apply sesame oil to your skin.
- If desired, apply conditioner to hair. Using a swim cap further protects hair.
If your skin absorbs water before exposure to chlorine, the amount of chlorine it can absorb will be minimized. In addition, sesame oil acts as a repellent. The same principles apply to hair.
