I swim couple of times a week in my local pool, and my hair shampoo still leaves my hair feeling like straw.  Recommendations please.

Try L'Oreal kids swimming shampoo.  The bottle is blue and orange, shaped like a fish.

I think if it's to improve the 'straw' feeling, rather than just to get rid of the chlorine smell, then you need to be a bit girly and get conditioner.  Sorry!

I have recently taken up swimming, and used to use Tesco's own brand and it was fine - but as you say, the swimming has started to knacker it.  I've started using Trevor Sorbie 'Repair' shampoo and conditioner.  I leave the conditioner in for a few minutes, particularly when washing hair straight after swimming, and it's really helped.  If you can brave the girly shampoo aisle in Boots there are loads of different types - look for stuff for damaged and/or dry hair, or anything that says something like 'repair' etc.  You can also get specific conditioner things that you are only meant to use occassionaly (?once a week or something) and will give your hair a deep condition.

Hope this helps, although I'm sure more experienced swimmer's will have better things to add.
