Welcome to TFP.

Wetting your hair with tapwater before swimming might help.

Adding salt up to about 1700ppm will probably help as well.

If you can provide water test results, someone might be able to point out issues that might help as well.

What are your numbers? (FC, CYA, pH) If you aren't keeping your pH in range that could easily damage your hair. Make sure your water is balanced first and foremost.
