With swimming season in full swing, TODAY style editor and author Bobbie Thomas is here to share a few savvy summer solutions.
Most of us turn to shower caps to keep our hair dry, but Sage's Shampoo Caps will wash your hair — while keeping you dry. The rinse-free caps are not only a handy alternative to shampooing in the shower, perfect for camping trips and more, but also a helpful aid to healthcare professionals. Simply warm the cap in a microwave, slip it on, and massage away to absorb dirt and oil ($3.69, sageproducts.com).
This next savvy summer find is an industry secret from the world of bodybuilding. Bikini Bite "suit fastener" is a gentle spray adhesive designed to keep swimwear, spandex shorts, miniskirts and more in place to avoid public peek-a-boos. It dries quickly, claims to work on any fabric, and rinses off with soap and water ($6.98, bodybuilding.com).
Last but not least, water lovers of all ages will be happy to hear about AfterSwim's absorbent strips, ideal for quickly absorbing water from the ear canal. Safer than a Q-tip and easier to use than drying drops, AfterSwim can gently eliminate moisture, reducing the risk of ear infections, irritations, and possibly the one-legged head-thumping ritual ($10.98, amazon.com).
