Your website says you need to spend $50 to get free shipping, not $35.
Hi! Our website promotions change throughout the year. The post about free shipping with $35 was from February. So sorry for any confusion!

Over the years, I have tried countless methods of protecting my hair before and after diving. My favorite protecting spray by Phyto has been discontinued. I have tried various products. The Stream 2 Sea is nice, but I think my coarse hair requires something heavier. The Subseries was okay, but the cost to benefit ratio has me feeling just so so. On my last trip, I tried something new and it made a big difference. In a travel sized bottle, I mixed coconut oil and avocado oil and applied to dampened hair before diving. After diving, I would wash my hair and use Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil conditioner and their leave in oil. Costly but it was a game changer!
For sunscreen,, nothing beats the La Roche-Posay Anthelios sunscreen. It doesn't break me out and turns into a powder after it dries.

Maybe you should bottle this and sell it here!

Does anyone have any good headband brands that work well for scuba with long hair? I usually dutch braid it, but still have all of the little flyaways that get in the way. I'm also going to have to try the leave in conditioner. I just switched from fresh water diving to more salt water diving and it is definitely taking a toll on my hair.

@Stream2Sea - Do you have tips for keeping the buffs in place while diving? I'm considering sewing mine a little smaller to keep it tight. It could use a gripper or something similar. ... maybe. ?

Hi Tori - great idea about a gripper! I've suggested adding this to our next manufacture run for the buffs. Sorry it's slipping on you!
