So, here's a swimming regimen for the braidless:
1. Tie up hair into some sort of secure style (lately this has been a single french braid)
2. Saturate hair with regular water from the sink or shower
3. Coat with conditioner or an oil
4. SWIM AWAY!
5. Do a rinse with club soda and proceed to cowash (I couldn't get my hands on the soda at sea last week to try [$$$]) -or- Wash away the chlorine with a clarifying shampoo
The club soda rinse is new to me, but would really come in handy if I was a weekly swimmer. Washing the hair with a clarifying shampoo too often is harsh. The soda is gentle and still removes the chemical from your hair.
