Not really big enough for my hair
on 17 September 2013
I have very long thick hair and have a hard time finding a swim hat to contain it. This cap does have an extra bit to take up excess hair but it's not big enough for mine. The cap kept sliding up and back off my head as I was swimming.
On the plus side - it really did keep my hair dry (except for the parts that were uncovered by the slippage) I am sure if you have a teen/kid/pinhead with long hair this hat would be perfect but if you have a normal sized head with big amounts of hair like me - forget it.
I have been using this cap now for a few months and it has (or I have) adapted slightly and to be honest I can't knock it as it really does keep my hair mostly dry. I think it is important to try and get your ponytail/bun in the extra bit but it is worth faffing about and you can quickly develop a technique, I think it may have also stretched slightly with continued use. I still can't get it to cover all my hair but it does a good job of covering most of it. I just can't find anything else for suitable for long hair. An unbelievable fact in this day and age I know, but there it is.
