CULTURE: If you enjoy the saunas in Europe, you'll find that CSL offers a comparable experience. For one, there's no imperative to wear shorts or be wrapped in a towel at all times. Short of allowing naked men and women to intermingle, it's pretty much German-style FKK here. Red Square doesn't encourage that. Also, on Saturday evenings in its peak season of late fall through winter, CSL's dry and wet saunas are packed with guys enacting bathing traditions from Mexico and Russia/the former USSR, including the platza - a birch leaf stick "beating" at the top rung of the sauna that feels much better on the body than it looks. This makes it a good place to go during long periods when you just can't make it to Europe or Latin America.

Awesome post. I went no poo for 2 years as well. I found, like mudnessa my hair graudally had build up due to hard water. I thought I might try it again using rain water if I can manage to store it. A couple more things you may or may not wish to experiment with 1 is pineapple juice! This was amazing and, yeah, ok you can drink it and it might not be the best thing, but as a 4-6 weekly treat it seemed to really clean my hair. The second one was soapwort. We grow it in the garden (it grows like mint so you need to contain it), harvest the flowers, stems and leaves, boil it up for 10 minutes, then leave to infuse and strain. After that you can put it in one of those cappuccino frothers and you get a few suds from the natural saponins. This wasn't quite as good for my hair (fine and flyaway) but for DHs which is really thick and wiry, the soapwort was excellent and made his hair very soft. Apparently soapwort is used in museum to clean fragile tapestries .I now use clay. Again, it does tend to build up after a while but it really improves the quality of my hair and adds body to it because I'm not stripping it with harsh chemicals.I found during my two years of bicarb and cider vinegar the colour of my hair changed dramatically; it nearly went orange (my natural colour is very dark with auburn / red highlights, so I guess it started to bring out the red A LOT!) Your hair looks a similar colour to mine; so just a friendly warning!

Chicago Sweatlodge is now Chicago's and the American Heartland's reigning (perhaps only?) Public Russian Banya/Shvitz!
Its miraculous appearance a few years back was all that made the (hopefully still temporary) loss of the ancient and beloved Division Street Russian and Turkish Baths survivable.
That is, thanks to Chicago Sweatlodge, the Ruskie-American tradition of Recreational Sweating survived in Chicagoland!
But what's very American and very Chicago about the place (and this was true about Division Street too) is that individuals and families from ALL backgrounds are regulars.
Which isn't as surprising as it first might at first seem; because Sweating traditions seem to exist in just about EVERY culture.
And I really love that, while still being very Russian, Chicago Sweatlodge explicitly recognizes this multi-culturalism of sweating in the captioned photos (of many of the various kinds of sweat lodges found around the world) that it has decorated it's walls with. By doing that, they've made sweating there ALMOST as educational as it is relaxing.

A sanctuary. The only place to relax, drink a beer, take a nap, watch sports...leave you phone off and tucked away in the locker. The saunas are incredible. Very clean and reasonable. Great staff. Just can't get enough.

This is an awsome sauna, the best in Chicago by far. The staff is very polite and the place is clean. The food is also very good. The wet sauna has hit over 200 while i was in it and the dry is just to overwhelming to describe. I suggest you try it out.
