    There is the option of putting a teeensy bit of essential oil (a few drops) into your vinegar mix to reduce the smell, if you really can't stand the thought of it.

    what about a leave in conditioner..
    ^ This is the answer. I swim 2 miles a day 6 days a week. If you think the hard water is bad, try all that chlorine. I use leave in conditioner and my hair feels normal for the rest of the day. If I forget, my hair feels like straw.

    I never really tried blow drying my sweat (kinda gotta say that makes me go "eww"), but I can see how that would make the "dry" shampoo work better. I may have to keep an open mind on that one. (little voice in my ear says again EEEWWW).

    I know. Ooooh, I know. The idea is pretty gross, but the results are worthwhile. Seriously, the Suave stuff is like three bucks. Give it a shot and see if it works for you. Not everyone will like it, but my hair is so long and curly, I have to try pretty hard to avoid damaging it, and this method is a lifesaver.
