You may love to jump into the pool, but chlorinated water can leave black hair dry and brittle. The quick solution? Wear a swim cap, but also immediately follow your swim and splash session with these hair-health safeguards from

•Shampoo hair with an anti-chlorine or swim shampoo. Rinse hair until water runs clear.
•Pour on a moisturizing shampoo; rinse and towel blot hair to remove excess water.
•Next, slather on a reconstructive conditioner and cover hair with a plastic cap for 15 minutes. (Let the shower’s heat activate the conditioner.) Rinse thoroughly.
•Then, towel dry hair again and apply a leave-in conditioner.
