A pre-float shower ensures that all makeup, natural body oils, lotions and product are removed from your body and hair. Without this first shower, an oily film would develop on top of the pod water and ruin your float experience.
This is also the reason we ask that you shampoo your hair but not use conditioner in this first shower – the conditioner acts like an oil in the float pod.
A post-float shower ensures that all salt is removed from your body. If you stepped out of the pod and went straight home, you’d develop a thick crust of white salt from head to toe! Best to wash that off before you leave.
