I have been a fairly dedicated CG-er for a while now, but I will be swimming almost daily (part of a new workout) and I wonder if this means I will have to poo sometimes?

What effect will the chemicals have on my hair?

    In my experience if you wet your hair in the showers prior to jumping in the pool and use a swim-cap while in the chlorinated water, that CO is plenty to keep the chlorine at bay. Chlorine can cause your hair to be dry, and soaking your hair in it daily usually causes fading of color (possible green ends if you're blonde) but pre-wetting plus silicone-cap blockage functions pretty well. HTH!

    Weeklyish shampoo with CO's inbetween to keep down the grease.

    I second teela's advice, it probably works even better than what the CG book recommends (using CO or "Lemon-Aid" to cleanse the scalp and hair and then reapply CO after rinsing thoroughly with water AFTER swimming). I think just CO would be better as the lemon juice would be drying used that often.

    i was going to ask what the curly girl book had to say about the issue (i left mine behind accidently when i moved last week).
