Swimmers, Love Your Hair Again

Swimmers, Love Your Hair Again

Like most swimmers, I love being in the water, but I hate the way my hair feels after time in the pool or the ocean. I also love to snorkel and will spend hours in the water when I'm in Hawaii or anywhere near a reef.  But I hate the way chlorine and salt water trash my hair and dry out my skin. So ... we did something about it.


The SWIM collection features activated charcoal and essential oils to remove sweat, chlorine, and salt from your skin and hair. There are three products: WASH, NOURISH and DEEP.

Bluerub hair and body wash for swimmers

WASH is a two-in-one hair and body wash. This sulfate-free hair and body wash gently but thoroughly cleans hair and skin. It's packed with antioxidants, fruit acids, and organic Rooibos tea to gently exfoliate skin and leave a healthy glow.  SURPRISE: This wash is a cool black gel but it won't stain your bathtub! Great for daily use.

Bluerub charcoal hair conditioner for swimmers

NOURISH is a charcoal-based conditioner with scalp loving ingredients like Organic Rooibos and Green Tea extracts.  Aloe Vera, ProvitaminB, and Brassica Campestris (fully biodegradable from Tung and Rapeseed Oils) hydrate, nourish and add shine. Great for daily use

Bluerub deep conditioning hair mask for swimmers.

DEEP is our, well, deep, conditioner. Lightly scented with Mango Natural Fragrance, DEEP uses Organic Banana Juice, Oat Protein, and Castor Oil to provide extra hydration, moisture, and conditioning.  It can be used daily for dry hair, or can be used as a twice weekly deep conditioner.

The entire SWIM collection is VEGAN, CRUELTY-FREE and ready for action.

Growing up in Southern California, Val played competitive softball (coached by her father), was a gymnast, swimmer, ran cross country, fished, hiked, kayaked, and as an adult, experimented in rock climbing and golf. In 2010 she was diagnosed with a rare cancer; a liposarcoma was growing on her sciatic nerve. Once this tumor was removed, she has been cancer-free!

Left with significant nerve damage, she now has limited mobility. Yet still moves and engages in the world around her. She snorkels, walks, travels, and practices yoga to combat chronic pain and to maximize her ability to keep moving. She works with a personal trainer, acupuncturist, physical therapist, and massage therapist to maximize her mobility.

She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and her dog and gets her fins on so she can swim with the fish any time she can.
