Just for background info - I always washed my hair about once a week.  Never had a problem with oil, etc.  My kids got theirs washed *maybe* once a month.  We had a great system going on in regards to hair.


Well, about a month ago we moved into a house with a pool and are swimming daily - sometimes several times a day.  If I can remember I'll run my kids through the shower before we redress to get the chlorine off, but that doesn't always happen.  If I don't wash - my hair looks oily, my daughter's hair (straight/bob) becomes impossible to brush, and my son's hair (long/curly) looks all frizzed out and gross.


Clearly our old system won't work during pool season.  What's something gentle that we can use daily?  I remember the years of daily washing of my own hair and it looked dry all the I'm not all gung-ho about just buying cheap products from Target.  Ideas?  Would something simple like a vinegar rinse work?

We've all got dry, tangled hair this summer too. When I was a the beach I used a friend's "dry hair" shampoo and it was amazing! I mean to get the name for myself -- I'll see what I can find out. Good luck in your search.
