I swam this morning.
I swam with my hair down and flowing all around me, like a mermaid.
This is probably the first of two total times that I will swim this year.
Though one of the original selling points of my current gym was the pool, apparently I forgot my stronger commitment to hair.
Redheads don’t do chlorine.
….At least, not if they want to continue being redheads.
IF a redhead wanted to enjoy chlorinated pools on a regular basis, my advice would be:
- Wet your hair in shower water first.
- Run a little conditioner through your hair and leave it in.
- Put on a swim cap.
- Shampoo promptly upon exiting the pool.
That should keep your color from fading (or browning out … or, if you’re a blonde, from greening out).
But Square Piece was done being a redhead today.
This afternoon my coworker, Mikala, took her time undoing ten months of me coloring my hair red. (Yes, my hair went quite dark recently in The Pretty Zombie Incident, but it was still deep auburn.)
Pictures will come as soon as I look presentable.
Do you ever coordinate your workouts around a hair routine?
