I'm no expert, but from what I understand, chlorine can be very drying. How drying depends on your hair properties and health. Chlorine cause further damage to hair that is already dry and in bad condition. It will do less damage to hair that is currently moisturized and healthy. Many curlies will minimize the drying effects by soaking their hair with water and conditioner before getting into the pool. That can keep some of the chlorine from penetrating the hair.
