Description

A. There are long hair caps available from suppliers like Speedo and Zoggs which give a roomier fit to accommodate long hair. Bubble caps are also a good choice for longer hair and larger heads, although these do create warmth, so if you are a performance swimmer they may be too warm for you. Swimcap.com was formed in 1980, with a vision to significantly improve the level of service that existed in the sportswear industry. The early business model focused on creating client specific swimwear solely manufactured in the UK.

Hygiene: People who swim without a cap lose hair in the pool and this ends up floating in the water and clogging up the filters. To protect your hair from the damaging effects of chlorine: Whilst your hair will still get wet, caps will prevent your hair from becoming saturated with the chlorinated water in the pool which can damage your hair. Our swim caps are a must-have swimming accessory alongside your go-to swimming goggles, available in a variety of sizes and colours, with our brightly-coloured swimming caps a popular choice for greater visibility, particularly useful in events and competitions. Choosing a Swimming Hat After swimming you will find that you have wet spots on your hair unless you have found a swim cap which fits you perfectly and has a great seal. If you want to avoid chlorine entering your cap you could wet your hair in the shower first before you put your swim cap on. This will help prevent chlorine from seeping under your cap by filling and sealing the hair shafts.Swimming caps are not just made for competitive swimmers but are highly beneficial for all sorts of pool users. If you want to keep your hair drier than it would be otherwise, perhaps because you are trying to get a few lengths in during your lunch break, they can be very helpful. When choosing the right swim hat, consider in what conditions you’ll be swimming. If you’re visiting a regular swimming pool, a standard swimming hat made out of silicone, latex or lycra will do the job. On the other hand, you might want to consider a neoprene cap for the added insulation in open water to deal with colder temperatures.

Club swimmers tend to use swimming caps because they lessen hydrodynamic drag whilst in the water. Put another way, they make your swimming more efficient and faster as a result. They do this by forming a smooth surface for the water to flow around as the head is propelled forwards by the swimmer's arm and leg strokes. Swim caps allow swimmers to move with grater fluidity through the pool than they could if their hair was exposed, creating drag. This also improves mobility when swimming and can help with rapid changes of direction as well as turns at the end of each length. A. No, unfortunately not. Swim caps are not designed to keep your hair dry but to reduce drag and for hygiene reasons. However, silicone caps or wearing two caps together with a silicone one on top, does create quite a good seal to prevent a lot of water seeping in. If you are swimming without putting your head in the water then a swim cap will protect your hair from splashes and will probably stay dry but if you swim with your head below the water line, water will seep into the cap because there is not a watertight seal. To make you more streamlined in the water: If you swim competitively, speed is very important and your hair will cause water drag, which slows you down. A swimming cap will reduce water drag and keep your hair out of your face so that you can see as you swim.

While tight-fitting latex swimming hats are the go-to choice for competitive swimmers due to the increased speed, hobbyists can always opt for the lycra alternative for added comfort and upgrade when needed. You’ll find something for everyone in our swim cap collection. A. Most swim caps are one size but some will come in small, medium, large etc; normally racing caps or open water neoprene caps. Many swim cap manufacturers design caps for adults or children with the children’s caps being smaller. Swimming caps are a popular accessory to go with your swimsuit for those frequenting their local pool. If you like swimming without a cap we would suggest that you rinse your hair in the shower before you swim and rinse well after with shampoo and use a conditioner to help repair any damage from chlorine. If you swim regularly then we advise that you use a deep conditioning treatment once a week as well. In the present day swimcap.com has expanded into the niche printing, customising and personalising of swim caps, water bottles and sportswear apparel within several sectors of the sports and leisurewear market (schools, colleges, grassroots and professional academies), and our ideology of offering a bespoke and quality service manufactured in the UK is still at the forefront of everything we do.

Some people condition their hair before putting a swim cap on but this can cause the cap to pop off. However, if you have goggles on over your cap this should prevent it from rising up. If you do brush conditioner through your hair first you should make sure you have a cap with a good seal so that conditioner doesn’t get into the pool.
