Always wash off with HOT water and soap after swimming. NEVER just leave it on. Also, use a moisturizing soap. For your hair, use a deep conditioning shampoo and conditioner. Get an excellent quality shampoo and conditioner, don't skimp, it won't help. Make sure the hair care doesnt' contain a lot of waxes which most OTC have. The last thing is get a great moisturizer. If you can't have oils, try natural butters and creams. Make sure they are water based as well.
Another thing to do is shower before you go in the water. I know it sounds crazy to get wet before you get wet, but this helps your skin with "good" water verses "bad" chlorinated water.
This is advice from someone who did competative swimming for nearly 8 years.
