US Synchronized Swimmers Style Swear by This Super Weird Hair Hack
In the competitive world of sports like dancing, cheerleading, gymnastics, etc., hair and makeup play a major role. And, as you can imagine, when a super physical element is also involved, the athletes have to get creative. Now just imagine that all this is ALSO taking place underwater.
Koroleva told the publication, “When we compete, we put Knox gelatin in our hair. It’s like unflavored Jell-O — we mix it with water, and it turns into a gooey mixture. You comb or brush that into your hair, put it up in a bun, and put a headpiece over that, so when it dries, it gets really hard and your hair doesn’t fall out when you swim. We like to add glitter and other decorations to it — it’s easy.”
