What is healthy for my hair?

I am a swimmer. I swim 2 times a week and sometimes more because I am on a team. So my hair is getting a little damaged. I heard that if I put conditioner in my hair before I go and dont wash it out that can help. So i do that but I dont know if it is enough toprotect my hair.

Apply conditioner, and seal it in with oil to create a hydrophobic barrier, and to lessen the amount of chlorinated water that is being absorbed by your hair. The best option is to wear a bathing cap over your conditioner/oil treatment. Make sure you use a sulfate free shampoo that isn't very gentle to wash the chlorine out. Afterwards, do a major, maybe overnight deep treatment to replenish the moisture.
