When I was a kid I had white-blonde hair. When I'd swim in the summer it would turn green from the chlorine. As I've gotten older and my hair has gotten darker, it has stopped turning green but gets kind of 'straw-like' after swimming. A few days of build-up and I've got quite the rat's nest on top of my head. For several years now, more years than I can count, I've been using chlorine-specific shampoo to get the gunk out: Ultra Swim.
like this stuff because it's not thick, it gets the chlorine and
chlorine smell out, and it leaves my hair feeling super soft. I've
tried other chlorine shampoo before and it's just not the same.
And the best part is that I can find Ultra Swim at any grocery or
pharmacy and it's only a few bucks. If you're a swimmer, give it a try!
