There are products you can use that can take away the smell of chlorine. they're specially formulated to do the trick so you won't smell like chlorine. I have perfectly straight hair and look much better after washing and using a hot air brush, but I wouldn't want to do that everY single day anyway so I just fix it a bit with a curling iron between washings. I never thought I'd be up for this, but after a year of doing water aerobics almost every day at 8 a.m., I love it! More friends, more energy, better blood pressure and way more toned!
