How do I get damaged hair soft and healthy?

I bleach my hair underneath about every 5 or so months but I also straighten it almost every day. And now that summer is coming up, I will be in pools with chlorine that will surely damage it more. Are there any tips/products to use to make it healthy and keep it healthy asap? I am only an early teen so I can't buy any expensive salon products that only Jennifer Lopez can afford. Any help?

Try BioSilk or Nexus Shampoo and Conditioner! Try to also use a protection spray before using your straightener. Also, try not to bleach your hair often as it damages it a lot and could possibly create irreversible damage, When you get done swimming, dry off, eat dinner etc. and shampoo and condition your hair to prevent chlorine damage. DO NOT sleep over night with chlorine in your hair or it will damage it and make it brittle and straw like over time. I have baby hair and it has always been soft, so I've never had this problem, but I helped my friend out to achieve that soft silky look and feeling. Hope this helps!

You can try out the Matrix Biolage shampoo and conditioner. It's very moisturizing and it is a good choice for dried-out hair. The shampoo also has sunflower seed oil as part of the main ingredients.

try argan oil, I use the one from pro naturals, it helps to repair the damaged hair and leaves it soft, shiny and healthy again.

Do a hydrating treatment once a week with coconut oil, almond oil or argan oil to moisturize your hair and make it healthy. Leave in the oil in with a shower cap over your head for about 30 minutes to 1 hour to let your hair absorb it. Sometimes it’s good to leave it overnight for extra moisture. I use an argan oil hair mask from pro naturals for repairing and moisturizing and it leaves my hair so soft and healthy, I totally recommend it. Get trims every 2-3 months too, it’ll help get rid of damaged hair and split ends.
