SOUTH AFRICAN WOMAN, NOMVUYO TREFFERS, MAKES SPECIAL SWIMMING CAPS FOR BLACK NATURAL HAIR

Do you have braids, locs or just a big afro? Then you’ll know how impossible finding a swimming cap that fits is, the stress of wearing one that’s too tight or damaging your hair by not covering it at all.

No fear however, black people are always using innovation to save the day and Swimma Caps exists to alleviate that stress!

South African founder, Nomvuyo Treffers started Swimma Caps out of the inevitable frustration that comes from swimming and getting her hair wet. In a conversation with Bona about why she founded the swimming cap company, Treffers said:

“I often avoided going swimming because I could not bear the chore of having to blow-dry my locs for hours.

My children also complained about uncomfortable swimming caps that could not fit over their high-volume hairstyles.

Seeing my children frustrated motivated me to design swimming caps suitable for bulk hair.”

Treffers is now working with schools in Cape Town and Johannesburg to provide Swimma Caps to pupils. This product has become more than a business at this point, as it is also an opportunity to teach young black girls to not feel other for having big, curly hair that can’t fit into swimming caps made for white hair.

These caps are on sale on their website, so better get you yours and tuck those locks in!
