I think this was mentioned before, but how do some of you protect your 3c hair while swimming?
I'm afraid that I'll damage my hair in all that chlorine!

    The first thing tat comes to my mind is conditioner and oil.

    You could heavily cover your hair with co, but co is washed out easily.

    So, I suggest covering it with Olive Oil to keep it from drying out. Oil is harder to wash out than conditioner. It stays!
    Wear your hair in a bun and you're good to go.

    PRobably there are more helpful tipps....

    Longtime swimmer and lifeguard here--condiitoner before and after swimming works wonders against the sun AND chlorine-- even a cheap one works. If you're laying out, let the conditioner cook in your hair. It'll leave your hair SO soft. A cheapie conditioner left in is another good idea.

    If you can, stay FAR AWAY from the swimmer's shampoos-- they can be very drying after repeated use.

    The next most important thing is to rinse, rinse, rinse!
