#ad GIVEAWAY and Review: Swim On Swim Cap for Long, Thick Hair






My Thoughts:

I was very interested in trying out this Swim On Swim Cap for Long, Thick and Curly Hair because I have quite a large head and a thick mop of hair. My hair will continue to grow longer and I know it will make fitting it in a swim cap harder. Plus, I really like wearing a swim cap over my ears because I hate water getting in my ears and this looks like it would be large enough to do that and it is.

I was sent a blue swim cap that was plain on both sides. There was no printing on either side. I don't mind that, but I wanted to mention in case it mattered to someone else.

I had read the reviews of an odor when you open the package. The only odor I noticed when I first opened it was that of silicone, which I expected since it is a silicone cap and all other silicone caps we have purchased have that same silicone odor when you take it out of the package. After it sat out for a couple days I didn't notice any more odor at all, but I would think the odor is pretty typical of silicone caps that are package up.

It is a VERY large cap. I included a picture so that you can see the size compared to a normal swim cap that my daughter wheres for competitive swimming. I don't think I would wear this to swim laps unless I had enough hair to fill out the cap. I do think it would be a great cap to wear if you are doing water aerobics or pool walking. I also think it works well as a shower cap when you need to freshen up but don't want to wet your hair or pull it back.


Product Description from Swim On:

The "Swim On" Comfort-Fit Swim Cap is designed to fit all hair styles and textures. Most people with long or thick hair struggle with standard size swim caps. They get frustrated because their swim caps are too small, and leave some of their hair exposed and wet when they go swimming. Thousands of women with naturally thick or long hair wish there was a swim cap large enough to fit their luscious tresses (especialy women with weaves, extensions, or dreadlocks).

This "Swin On" cap fits over virtually every hair style and prevents people from having to waste time or money in drying & re-syling their hair when they want to enjoy the beach, pool, or even go on vacation. This large swim cap is critically valuable for the diversity of women cross all hair textures. Women of color with diverse ethnic backgrounds are especially sensitive to getting their hair wet and often avoid going swimming all-together because they do not want to struggle with their hair.


Also a bonus tip... the "Swim On" cap is perfect for everyday use as a shower cap. Women can get rid of their old plastic bonnett shower caps and truly protect their hair from getting wet with the "Swim On" cap.

I don't like how many swim caps are too tight and won't stay on!

My biggest swim cap grip is that they are so ugly! However, the thought of covering my ears to keep the water out makes the cap more appealing.

not attractive

I hate that some leak and are so difficult to put on the "right" way to prevent leaks. I also dislike the fact that they are not very appealing in looks.
