Lets be honest, so many of us are vain about our hair. We don’t want it getting destroyed by the harsh environment in the pool, be it a chlorinated pool or a salt water pool. It is for this reason that I started doing research about swim caps.
Who knew there were SO MANY different kinds of swim caps?!
There are caps for long hair, short hair, cold water, warm water, aerobics and laps. There are caps for swim teams and amateurs, triathletes and Olympians.

The most important things to consider are: what you’re doing, where you’re doing it, and how long your hair is.
Swimming laps: You will want to look for a smoother and tighter cap, one made from latex or silicone. Silicone caps are better for long hair, but they are also a little bit warmer. Latex caps are better for vary short hair, they will be better at staying on your head. If you swim in a warm pool and get hot easily, consider trying a latex cap.
