Yes, especially if use alot of hair products. Your typical person when over exposed will get thin and brittle hair, and if you're blonde it can get a green tint to it.
If you use alot of hair products, it can actually cause your hair to fall out depending on what you use. There was a girl I knew during highschool that took up swimming and was an exceptional swimmer; then one day her hair started to fall out and it turned out to be from some product that she was using. IIRC, it was a hair relaxer. She was told to either stop swimming or have frizzy hair, so she stopped swimming.
It really was a shame since she was literally a natural.
