Question What about long hair?

I am getting ready to set out on some serious sailing in our 27' Norsea. We will do not have a water maker so water will be a rationed commodity. I have long hair and really don't want to cut it...anyone have suggestions on how to keep it clean without using water?

You can wash it in salt water, but not sure your hair will be happy with it! Would you like me to move this into the HerSailnet Forum? I think the gals of our forum may have some suggestions.

They do sell waterless shampoos that don't require rinsing...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Check out the book "Care and Feeding of Sailboat Crew" by Lin Pardey. She has many good tips on living on a boat with limited water, including taking care of long hair.

Those jugs for insect poisin you spray the garden with. That is a good way to rinse hair. I met alady with hair to her waist, and thick as can be. This is what she used with help from her husband.

My wife finally got tired of her long hair on the boat, and cut it. I did the same thing about 18 years ago.....BEST WISHES in finding a solution to keep your hair long......i2f

Other than making it (fresh water) a condition for living aboard, you might try catching rain water. I've washed my long(ish) hair in sea water (less foam) and followed with minimal fresh water rinsing. I didn't wash it as often as I'd like to, though. Also, its wasn't that often that we didn't have access to fresh water sources.

rain water is probably pretty good for the hair if you filter it properly.

Hi Jacqueline,

I considered not replying to this thread just because now I'm busted that my avatar photo is pretty old - my hair has grown out to where it is now just past shoulder-length, and I'm not sure I want to cut it either. Mostly I keep it braided - picks up less dirt that way, and I don't really want it whipping me in the face in the wind anyway - and wash it less often but indulge in the water when I do. With salt water I find less of a need to soap my hair than I had anticipated anyway, it's clean, just salty, and often I can get by with a fresh water rinse and conditioner with UV protection. (I use Aruba Aloe brand when I can get it)
