Latex Swimming Caps

Are Latex Swimming Caps The Best Option?

Latex swimming caps are the most popular swim caps for many reasons. They are incredibly easy to customize so you can order them from a specialty store that will print whatever you want on them. Latex swimming caps are made out of latex and nothing else. They can be durable long lasting swim caps if they are cared for properly. You must be careful that you do not have any clips, especially metal ones, in your hair before putting on a latex swim cap. If you have a hair band in your hair that has a metal portion, it may rip a latex swim cap. An earring or sharp fingernails can also rip them. As long as you are careful and do not use metal with them, they can last for over two years.

Latex swim caps are some of the most stretchy swim caps so they fit just about any head size. One factor to consider about latex swim caps is they pull your hair when you are taking them off and that can be uncomfortable. With experience, you become better at removing the swim cap without this discomfort. Another point to consider is that some are allergic to latex. If you have this particular allergy, you should consider a different type of swim cap. Latex swim caps are not porous. This means that when used in a warm climate, they can trap warmth between the swim cap and your scalp. This can help to keep your head warm when you are swimming in cold water.

A latex swim cap is pretty easy to take care of and will not take much time. After you use it, you should rinse your swim cap in cool water and then let it air dry. You should keep your swim cap out of the sun as much as possible. If your swim cap gets too hot for too long, the latex starts to melt and becomes sticky. You might want to consider putting a towel inside your swim cap to keep the sides from resting on each other. This will help prevent the swim cap from sticking to itself. Some use powder on the inside of their swim cap, which does help to prolong its life. However, you may find that powder prevents the swim cap from staying on your head.
