If not, I guess you can always switch to bromine... supposedly it's not as bad as chlorine, but just as effective in keeping the pool clean.
Unfortunately, it is my apartment complex's pool.

Aveda's clarifier is good. After clarifying, use a moisturizing conditioner. During the summer, if one does a lot of swimming, a moisturizing and clarifying shampoo would probably be good once a week or so.

Also, if one has really dry hair, a leave in conditioner helps when out in the sun for long periods of time.

Some companies make specific products to prevent or rid the hair of "chlorine green". Those are more for swimmers and blond hair.

Chlorinated water rapidly irritates my gills. I can spend no more than a few minutes in a swimming pool without permanently damaging my health.

I am trying to decide between the Kiehl's and the Aveda. I am skeptical of Aveda as they sell their products at Wal-mart. Does Kiehls? Yes, it's a pretty dumb standard but I have no other way to compare the two!

Really? I never knew non-Aveda stores carried their products. I know some drug stores carry "Salon" products but I always thought it was old stuff etc...

Anyway, I use the Hair Detoxifier once a week to get out buildup of product in my hair and it works pretty well as that.

Aveda (and other salon quality hair products) don't sell their hair products anywhere but professional salons. Distributers divert products illegally to stores like that to make a quick profit knowing that they probably won't get caught. It is something that is not really regulated and is not done "above board", so to speak.

Swim cap is only safe route. I hate rubber swim caps and use a lycra/spandex one instead, doesn't totally block the chlorine but seems to help.

For casual swimming at a pool, you might try a leave in conditioner like paul mitchell the conditioner before you swim?

I've been using the Kiehl's but can't really notice a difference. I imagine it couldn't hurt though. Maybe leave-in conditioner would be best. Are there any characteristics one should look for for this application or would any leave-in work? I use Bumble & Bumble shampoo and conditioner so I'd like to get their leave-in as well. It has wheat germ glycerides and Panthenol, whatever that means.
