Sorry, lurking - it just caught my eye as I was scrolling down thru the forums . . . are you at least co-washing
every time you swim? If not, no wonder your hair feels weird and gunky at times, LOL.
Chlorine's very hard on hair. Besides at least co-washing every
time, you probably need to low-poo (use a sulfate-free shampoo) or use a shampoo bar (all natural, no sulfates and supposed to be even gentler than low-poos) at least once a week. Any of the Giovanni shampoos are SF, as are Burt's Bees (don't like personally), Naked Naturals, and others.
I haven't used this swimmer's shampoo but have used other California Baby products and they're very good www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=144572&catid=11936
Target and Whole Foods carry CB products.
A good conditioner for you to try (you still need one after you rinse out whatever one you use for co-washing - usually something richer than it was) is GVP conditioning balm from Sally's Beauty Supply or Walgreen's Bioinfusion version of it or Aldi's grocery's Shique version of it (it's the least expensive) - they're all equally good. Lustrasilk from Sally's is very inexpensive but supposed to be very good.
Or a lot of people like Suave Coconut conditioner for both co-washing and conditioning - I don't, but everyone's hair is different, and it's very cheap so probably worth giving a try.
Same for VO5's - I've tried the Vanilla Mint Tea Clarifying Conditioner - it's pretty good, but I need the Giovanni - the clarifying part might be a plus for chlorine removal. I personally like Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat because my scalp needs it. Afterwards, I use one of the conditioning balms (above) as my rinse-out conditioner most of the time.
If you do go to Sally's, Bioterra Curl Cream is a decent, inexpensive one you might start with. Or a lot of people like L'Oreal Out of Bead (black jar) used on wet hair as a curl cream (that's not its intended use or how its directions say to use it).
I think most any of the Herbal Essences creams/mousses/gels are CG - I don't care for them, but many do. Some if not all of their conditioners are OK, but I think their shampoos have sulfates.
I'll stop - just some suggestions to start with.
