Swim Caps Ripping
Hi, I have extremely long, thick, and frizzy hair, which causes my swim caps to rip on a weekly basis. Does anyone know if there are any special caps that do not rip easily?
Do you purchase long hair caps? They have extra room for your hair. Silicone caps also tear less. Here are some long hair caps: https://www.swimoutlet.com/long-hair-swim-caps-c9638/
In addition to the long hair caps also try out elastomeric caps from Speedo they are super stretchy and allow you to get easily over your head and hair. I have long hair and find these really easy to use. They come in great solids and prints!
They have specifically made silicone caps for longer hair and they don't pull your hair like many latex caps.
elastomeric caps - thanks for the tip! My boys do not have long hair, but are always ripping caps right before a race!
I have hair that goes past my butt so I understand you're problem. For the longest time I struggled with normal caps and the caps always slipping off or giving me headaches because they were to tight. I found the long hair caps that speedo sells to be the most useful. I started using them about 3 years ago and they are literally a miracle. Best thing ever! They hardly every rip on me. Best thing is that it has a shape of your ponytail so it works perfect!
Swim cap ripping even happens to Olympic swimmers. Did you see where Michael Phelps cap ripped just before his turn in the relay? I wonder what kind of cap he wears?
When I was growing out my hair last year (bad idea) I had a similar problem. There are some awesome caps made specifically for longer hair and I also suggest silicone. All my favorite caps are silicone and I've also found they tend to be the most durable and less prone to break on me. Good luck!
I believe he wears his own MP brand swim cap which are made by Aqua Sphere.
