About Swimming Caps
To begin, let’s dispel a common misconception about swim caps: they are not intended to keep your hair dry! I know it’s shocking, but no swim cap can guarantee that your hair will stay dry. Although some caps will perform admirably in this regard, this is not their intended purpose. To keep the hair as dry as possible, wear two caps (perhaps a Lycra cap with a silicone cap on top) or use a silicone cap, which has a tight fit and should keep the majority of the water out. Wearing a swimming cap has several advantages: • It makes you more streamlined in the water: If you compete in swimming, speed is crucial, and your hair will cause water drag, slowing you down. A swimming cap will help you see better while swimming by reducing water drag and keeping your hair out of your face. • To protect your hair from the damaging effects of chlorine: While your hair will still get wet, caps will keep it from becoming saturated with the chlorinated pool water, which can damage it. • Hygiene: Swimmers who do not wear a cap lose hair in the pool, which floats in the water and clogs the filters. • Warmth: A swim cap will keep you warm in cold water if you swim in open water.
Types of Swimming Caps
SILICONE CAPS Silicone caps are popular because they are strong and durable, as well as providing a sleek and secure fit. If you want a swim cap that will keep your hair relatively dry, the silicone cap is the way to go, as it has a tight fit that prevents water from getting under the cap. Regular swimmers will benefit from silicone caps, whether they are training for their squad or swimming for fitness on a weekly basis. Silicone caps that have been molded are smooth and wrinkle-free, making them more hydrodynamic for competitive swimmers.
NEOPRENE CAPS Neoprene caps or thermal swim caps are now widely available as a result of the growing popularity of triathlon and open water swimming. They are designed to keep your head warm while swimming in cold conditions. Scuba diving wetsuits are made of neoprene, which works by allowing some water to enter and then keeping it close to your body, which heats it up and insulates you. If you swim in open water and need to stay warm, this is a great option; however, if you swim in a heated pool, we would not recommend a neoprene cap.
POLYESTER AND LYCRA CAPS A Lycra or Polyester swim cap is a good choice if comfort is your top priority. The soft fabric won’t pull or catch your hair, and it fits comfortably. Polyester and Lycra caps, on the other hand, are completely porous, and your hair will become completely wet.
BUBBLE CAPS Bubble caps are typically made of latex rubber and have a vintage appearance. These swim caps are ideal for long hair because they have a more generous fit and are more comfortable than a silicone cap. The bubbles are filled with air, which, combined with the thick rubber material, keeps them warm, making them ideal for open-water swimming. Bubble caps usually cover your ears as well, adding warmth and noise insulation.
