Since I bought a new suit with metallite coating I only need shampoo to get my head (long hair) through the suit and I use only water for the rest.
Problem is, my scalp and hair reacts badly to the prolonged exposure to shampoo, so does anyone have any suggestions for other lubricants that are gentle to your skin?
Conditioner and water mixed works well. Plus it doesn't sting your eyes.

Ocean swimmer suggested diluted KY jelly, if nothing else its slippery and non allergic :)
I thought we already went through this a couple weeks ago.
Clearly we cannot make real suggestions for a subject that
begs for humor.
