Swimma Cap Caters To Black Women in Water Sports
Wanting to find a solution to these concerns for herself, her daughters, and other black women, Cape Town-based photographer and entrepreneur Nomvuyo Treffer has created Swimma Caps.
Swimma Caps is a new cap brand made specifically for black hair worn in high-volume hairstyles. Treffer was inspired by her own struggle when it came to her daughters, 8 and 10 years old, who are heavily involved in water sports, and obtaining protective head-wear that would keep their natural hair healthy. She commented,
“How can it be that in a country like South Africa, with the demographics that we have that we don’t have a product like this for black people.”
Like a true innovator, she took matters into her own hands, and now there is a swimming cap brand that is affordable and guaranteed to keep black hair healthy even when exposed to the harsh chemicals in many pools meant for swimming sport practice.
