yes, salt is very drying! but during the hot summers, not swimming doesnt seem to be much of an option so before you go into the pool put conditioner in your hair... just enough to evenly distribute

No, salt does not damage the plaster. Improper water balance will.

well swimming in saltwater is okay because saltwater is like natural water for our bodies. and with swimming pools, it has chlorine. all chlorine does is try to make the water as pure as possible. but chlorine has a weird smell and it can damage some parts but not that much.

No I have had bricks around my saltwater pool for years and they are still in good condition. there can however be some problems when it comes to the effect salt has on the mortar.

Yes, because the chlorine dries out your hair causing it to become brittle and fall out. It wont, unless you wash your hair after swimming.

Damage you hair is more like it. The chlorine is very bad for your hair and should be rinsed after swimming. A: Not a good idea to shampoo in the hair in the pool. You are contaminating the water.
