so, its summer. I live on the ocean and in a tent so I go swimming a lot. These facts are awesome.
NOT awesome though, is that I'm worried that my hair is going to get moldy. I've read the memories and someone said something about mildew not liking salt.
so my question is this...
will I get moldy if the water in my hair is salty? I mean, I wash my hair with normal water about once a week, but the rest of the time its ocean water and then its so humid here some times that I dont think my dreads dry all the way all the time.

How long does it take for mold to start growing? How do I know if I have mold? I know how to get rid of it (vinegar and baking soda rinses right?) but I just dont want to have to have it at all.
HALP!

and for good measure:
