Summer Fun


Photo of our fabulous pool!

This summer, Ed and I have been spending a lot of time hanging out in the pool at our condo.  I must say, its been wonderful!  We have loved every minute of it!  Nothing better than coming home after a long day at work and taking a jump in the pool!  The only drawback is the fact that it makes our hair look like straw!  Both Ed and I have been suffering from dry, flyaway hair that looks terrible!  After doing a little research, I found that you should rinse your hair approximately 10 minutes after being in the pool...seriously?  I'm already water logged when I get out of the pool...now I have to sit under a shower for 10 minutes? NO THANKS!!! Now I'm on the hunt for a treatment or shampoo that helps to remove the harsh chemicals from your hair. 

I did find a remedy that just uses shampoo, baking soda and vinegar...but I'm not sure I want my hair smelling like a deli.  I may try it tonight just to see if this trick works.  Should be easy enough, mix the baking soda and shampoo, leave in your hair for 2 minutes, rinse, then put vinegar on, for 2 minutes then rinse and condition.  I'm hoping that this will do the trick.

If you're brave enough to look a little wild or cutting edge, just shave your hair off for the summer and then you don't have to worry about it! Just make sure you've bought a bunch of funky/cool hats to wear from the thrift store.

I am not that brave! I'd prefer to deal with the dried birds nest of a head of hair than shave it all off...and I think Ed would agree with me....even he wont shave off his own head.
