Sometimes you just gotta improvise...

The beach house we rented in Emerald Isle had a great pool that the kids seemed to be in constantly. With Megan's near-white hair...the chlorine quickly turned her hair a lovely shade of green. One afternoon, I pulled her hair back into a ponytail and it seriously looked like someone had colored streaks of her hair with a green marker. Many washes with UltraSwim made it a tiny bit better, but still not great. Upon returning home, I asked a hair dresser friend and she recommended using Dawn dishwashing liquid. That also improved the hue a little bit, but did not eliminate it totally. So off to Google I went. I found a product - Malibu 2000 Crystal Gel Treatment - that got excellent reviews. So I ordered a couple of packets. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the treatment required time under a heated dryer to be totally effective. Guess it would have been a smart idea to actually read the whole product description. Oh well. So last night - I improvised...Megan did not want her picture taken at first, but finally she acquiesced:

Yes...that is a chip clip holding a heating pad around her head. The good news is that it worked beautifully! Her hair is back to it's natural, white-blond color.

Personally, I would have left it green. It's only evidence of all the fun she had all summer! Besides, with a smile that cute, no one would notice.
