Lindfield mum turned inventor

Taking your daughter swimming is great fun but getting hair dry afterwards can take forever and all too often girls end up with wet hair dripping down their tops.

Now a Lindfield mum has come up with a solution. Sara Mullins has invented ‘the swimchie’ – a scrunchie which both ties and dries wet hair.

“The dripping wet hair and soaking wet tops led me to believe that getting dressed after swimming could be drier and more enjoyable, and it was from this experience that the swimchie was born!” Sara said.

The product is a very simple idea that ties like a scrunchie and loops over wet hair forming a bun. For more information see:
