Do you wear a swim cap over your ears?

Do you put a swim cap on with wet or dry hair?

Wet your hair first.

Some cap materials, particularly latex, stick to dry hair strands. It’s not uncommon to see swimmers wet their hair before attempting to put a cap on. Others use a small amount of conditioner for the added benefit of providing some hair protection.

Does your hair get wet with a swim cap?

If comfort is your main priority, then a Lycra or Polyester swim cap is a good choice. The soft fabric will not pull or catch your hair and gives an easy fit. However, Polyester and Lycra caps are completely porous and therefore your hair will get completely wet.
