Why does my hair still get wet with a swim cap?
The most common reason for hair getting wet while wearing a swim cap is that the water isn’t absorbed properly by the swim cap. The material of your swim cap should be able to absorb as much water as possible, so you end up with dry hair when you remove it.
There are some other factors which may contribute to this issue:
- the swim cap may not fit your head properly
- it is too tight or loose
- there are seams on top of your forehead, which will make water seep into your hair.
Can you keep your hair dry while swimming?
Yes! There are some products that can help to reduce the amount of water entering through the shell and onto each strand of hair – such as silicone based sprays, oils etc. One option could be a conditioner with a high level of conditioning agents for fine or damaged hair – this will also create an extra barrier around each strand so less moisture is lost from within the strands. The best time to apply these products would be before getting in the pool/sea by using them sparingly (a couple of spritzes/drops) and then combing them through your hair.
How do you keep your hair from getting wet under a swim cap?
Wear a tighter fitting headband to make sure it doesn’t slip out of place, which will allow water in more easily. This is also good for people who have bald or thinning areas on their scalp as they can put the band just above these areas so that the water stays away from those spots.
– Take off any jewellery like earrings before putting on an old hat with holes cut into it – this helps reduce movement and keeps the waterproof layer intact while swimming too!
Why is my hair wet after wearing a swim cap?
If the swim cap isn’t waterproof then when it gets wet, so will your hair. Why? The water is touching both surfaces of the material and seeping through to your hair strands inside.
Use a latex or silicone based spray instead – these are designed to create an extra barrier around each strand of hair which slows down any moisture coming in contact with the surface near by. This reduces its risk of absorption into the individual strand and can also protect against chlorine damage!
