Vegan anti-chlorine hair products

#1 Postby vivalasvegans » Sun Jun 21, 2009 10:04 am

I foresee a lot of swimming in my future this summer and I want to protect my hair.

Any one have any recommendations? Shaving my head bald is not really an option.

viva there's an old thread I remember about this . Not sure how I would find it? I remember veganpotter answered in it and i think it was around early 08. Also though, keep in mind that there is no chlorine in the lap pool @ 24 hr. Honest. The smell of chlorine is from the hot tub, which they use chlorine in. So if that's the concern you're good to go ;)

Yeah, I'll wear one someplaces, but other places, no... and it's still gonna seep onto some of my hair... maybe i'll get this one

L&G: really?!?!? One trainer told me there's chlorine in it... I'll double check. I hope not. I need to figure something out for other places though.

I'll see if I can find that old thread.

I *think* Malibu 2000 Un Do Goo shampoo is vegan. They also make a swimmer's shampoo.

ABBA makes a molasses and baking soda based vegan clarifying shampoo. It's called Pure Detox shampoo. If you don't have a salon in your area that carries it their site is www.abbahaircare.com. Hope this helps. We've used it in the salon to remove chlorine successfully.
