I have a class for school, I swim 3 out of 5 days and the pool water is drying my hair out and turning it into a dry frizzy dull mess, i wet my hair before getting into the pool, and condition it when i get out..but it still is dry..any ideas??

    Hmm...
    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 :)

    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

    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. :/
