Natural dreads:

When you have natural dreads, you need to be cautious not to use too many chemicals or expose them to excessive water, especially in chlorinated pools or seawater. Pool water may contain chemicals that can weaken the hair and affect its condition.

It's advisable to use a special cap or carefully tie up the dreads to limit their exposure to water. After swimming in saltwater or a pool, it is recommended to thoroughly rinse the dreads with fresh water to remove salt or chlorine. Make sure to let them dry before binding or styling.
