I’m talking to the lady readers now, you know when someone comes into your room, steals your hair and replaces it with a load of straw? ( thanks WP for this description)We’ve all been there, crispy cuticles and dried out hair shafts, well that’s what’s happened to me in Koh Tao; I’m a walking demographic for l’oreal moisture lock hair products. Devoid of these shenanigans on the isle I found an alternative solution, to take my straw barnet and dive into the sea, more precisely 18m deep, for three days. When I emerged I still had hay hair but I was a certified open water diver with salty hay hair.
Here’s the science bit:
1 x exam
1x afternoon in the pool relearning to in and exhale with a gas canister and performing breath defying drills
4 x dives in the ocean
1 x video of dives interspersed with throwing myself off a boat in various positions
A lot of fish in the face and ears
