I'm a swimmer - Can i do CG?

I swim four or five days a week, in the evenings. I have 3a hair, and find that it is usually dry, dull and breaks easily. I want to try CG but i don't know if not using shampoo will prevent all the chlorine from being washed off. Any recommendations? Should I try it?

    I swim about twice a week in the afternoons. I wear a cap, but my hair does get wet. After that I rinse in the shower and wash with conditioner--VO5. It works for me.
