More about me:
I have an interest in health literacy. I started my daughter with swim lessons when she was six months old. I was saddened by the recent deaths of members of an African-American due to drowning. I am involved in aquatic exercises and my hair outgrew the traditional swim caps. To solve the problem, I have invented a swim cap for dreads, braids, weaves or anyone with long thick hair. It is my belief concern for your hair should not be an impediment to learning a necessary life skill.
