Cape Town-Based Mom Creates Swim Caps For Those With Locs, ‘Fros, Braids, And High Volume Hair
For most of us hitting the pool or beach, a swim cap is a staple. This is particularly true for those wanting to preserve and protect a style.
Yet for those with high volume styles, it’s traditionally been hard to find a swim cap that fits locs, ‘fros, or long braids under a small cap. This is the gap that Nomvuyo Treffers fills with her swim cap line, Swimma Cap.
The Cape Town, Africa-based entrepreneur saw the need for the line after realizing that folks with high volume hairstyles (especially she and her daughters) simply could not fit their hair into swim caps. Realizing that being a water athlete and maintaining natural hair was becoming a difficult chore, she unearthed a solution: create a swim cap that would allow their hair to fit snugly and securely into a cap.
