Maybe you could deep condition once a week or so with coconut oil. That should lock in the protein and bring in the shine.

Also, here are some good products for chlorine and curly hair:
(natural and can be bought at Ulta)

Amazon.com: Fairy Tales Energizing Leave-in Conditioner, 12 oz: Health & Personal Care
(natural and can be bought at Ulta)

I brought the leave-in after going to a waterpark, and my hair was great the next day

Default Swimming

hey so im going through like the same thing but its 4 out of 5 times
but what i found help was first applying water and conditioner like you siad but than gel since it works as a shield to me.
than i put my hair in a bun like this

Natural Hair: 3 minute Glam Up-do Hair style - YouTube
it really helped plus it looks super cute.
also do a deep treatment on weekends
hope i helped

I learned a tip from heyfranhey.com that if you wet hair and coat in an oil, it'll form a good shield on your hair. :/
