The ideal swim cap to use at Andark Lake with a 20GMS Thickness to keep you warm and hair protected.
Latex caps are stretchy, so they fit most head sizes. They can “grab” long hair when being put on or removed, and having your hair pulled is not comfortable. Once a swimmer is experienced at donning a swim cap, this is usually not a big problem. Latex swim caps are nonporous, so if they are used in a warm environment they can increase a swimmer’s body temperature. They trap a layer of warm water between the scalp and the cap, which insulates the swimmer’s head from the cooling water of the swimming pool. One caution: Some swimmers have allergic reactions to latex.
Proper care for a latex cap is about the same as for other types of caps. Rinse in cool water, air dry, and store out of the sun in a place that won’t get too hot (heat can break down latex into a sticky mess). Stuffing a small, dry towel inside the cap can help it dry better and prevent the inside surfaces from adhering to each other. Some swimmers powder their caps with talc or baby powder; while this gives the cap a longer life, it also makes a mess and keeps the cap from adhering to the head, so it tends to slip off more often.
