does chlorid cause build up in hair?

DDs have been going swimming twice a week and I noted that the ends of their hair feel really odd and coated. sort of dry/waxy/frizzy. I just use normal shampoo for them but it doesn't wash out this strange build up.

I have no idea what it could be. The only thing I can think of is chlorid but I always thought it just turns blond hair green (DDs have very dark hair so not an issue).

And if it is chlorid, how do I remove it?

It does build up. Get a clarifying shampoo. Phillip Kingsley does one specifically for chlorine build up. Use it for every hair wash for a couple of weeks, and then just after swimming.

If you swim in a pool you should us an anti chlorine shampoo. Chlorine does weird things to hair.
