pool and swimming hair?

so swimming season has started yay! i really love swimming and plan on swimming every day. today was my first day, after i got out i put a bit of oil in my hair, though it was still really fizzy and dry and just not nice.
does anyone have any advice as to how you can protect your hair and while still looking good?
also what does any one have an after swimming routine?
i still want my hair looking good when im swiming or lying in the sun, and i dont really feel like getting bad split ends or what not from all the chemicals in the water. so any advice would be great

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
If you're going to be swimming every day, you should probably just invest in a swim cap.

Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
I second a swim cap, but understand if you don't want to wear one (I probably wouldn't) I have read that you should get your hair wet and coat it with conditioner/oil before getting into the water. This is supposed to prevent the hair from absorbing as much of the chlorinated water. Then wash it/rinse it asap after.
FIA: 2b-c/f/i, normal porosity/elasticity I think?

Current favs:
lo-poo: Giovanni
Co-Wash: V05 Kiwi Lime
RO: CJ Beauticurls,
LI: Ouidad Botanical Boost
PT/DT: Emergencee, Biolage Condish Balm
Stylers: LALSG, Aussome Volume Gel
If it was once a week or so, I'd say conditioner soak. But, every day? There will be damage no matter what you do if you're not covering it up.

I'm at a pool right now lol I'm a teen and I coated my hair with a deep conditioner today and put it in a bun
rockin the curls God gave me.

Routine!
Shampoo n/a
Conditioner Vo5 Moisture Milks
Leave in Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
Shower, comb, apply leave in and mousse in wet hair then scrunch out the water and sometimes.
Second day, Wake up mist with water and smooth Shea Moisture Curl enhancing smoothie over hair
every day is our goal, but i doubt itll work i hate wearing caps, i used to when i was little n hated it then, plus they give me bad head aches. I think i might try rinsing before and oiling as well...... will update when i work it out
thanx ladies!
