Aubrey’s Swimmer’s Shampoo
I love a good lake swim across the murky unknown. So calming, so Canadian, so free of chlorine. Alas, if you don't have a lovely dockside property and must get your strokes in at concrete pools, your hair is likely weeping. Yep, that crunchy sound means it's mourning the loss of its inherent shine and softness. Even in a sexy silicone cap, water seeps in. What to do? Slather fair trade coconut oil or any kitchen oil on your tresses before you slap on your cap. Post-swim, rinse hair with 1 part apple cider vinegar to 4 parts water, or if you need a good wash, use Aubrey Swimmer's Shampoo. It'll purge hair, scalp and skin (it also works as a body wash) of moisture-robbing chlorine. It's a little low on lather, but that's the price of bypassing junky, conventional ingredients.
