How can I go swimming everyday without getting my hair wet and damaging it... (my hair is relaxed)

I like swimming, and it's a really good way to exercise but I cant keep getting my hair wet with pool water... I have chemically relaxed hair and it will break off if i don't wash and condition it everyday, which I do, but then i run out of products quickly. I wore a shower cap today and that didn't work... and I wore a swim cap one time and that didn't work... :(

  • Swim Cap. A shower camp would come off easily. A swim cap is meant to fit to the head, so that it doesn't come off while swimming.

  • Maybe your swim cap isn't fitting right? IDK The chlorine inthe water will strip a lot of the oil out of your hair so don' t wash it every day, just condition when you shower after your swim.
