You Jump in the Pool with Dry Hair
Dry hair will soak up a lot of the chlorine that can leave your hair parched and your color brassy. If your hair is already wet (with tap water), it's less likely to absorb the hair-dulling chemical. For extra protection, after a quick pre-swim rinse, comb a little conditioner through and secure your hair in a low bun before you dive in. And post-swim, rinse your hair out as quickly as possible, says Chiccine.
