|My new shampoo.|
What makes this earth shattering is that this is the first time I've washed my hair on the boat using dishwashing liquid while swimming in the Hauraki Gulf. We don't have a shower on board, we don't have a lot of water storage and we don't go to marinas regularly to take advantage of their showers. So, sooner or later it was going to have to happen. I jumped in the water, Scott squeezed some of that fine "shampoo" into my hand. I lathered and dunked my head in the water for that all important salt water rinse. Lather, rinse, repeat. Then I climbed back on board, had a frugal rinse with fresh water, combed in some leave-in conditioner and let the sun do its magic drying.
It seems like dishwashing liquid is commonly used for washing hair in salt water as it will lather up so I gave it a go. The end result - no more grease and slightly crunchy hair. But then again, I've never been known for having a luxurious mane of hair so no real loss. Scott said it looked nice. But I think he was just tired of me looking in the mirror and wanted me to go make dinner.
