How to put on your child’s swimming cap

Swimming essentials by Spurt SA

Most swimming caps are made from durable, stretchy silicone. They are designed for a snug, comfortable fit and are intended to grip the head and stay in place.

Because of this, swimming caps may tend to pull at a child’s hair as you place the cap on, making it difficult to get your child to wear a swimming cap.

Here are a few tried and tested ways to get your child’s swimming cap on without tears.

Wet the hair
Wet your child’s hair either in a pre-shower or at the pool before putting the cap on.

Tame the tangle

If your child is like my Kiki her hair tangles with the slightest hint of nature’s elements. You can run some conditioner through the wet hair first to stop the tangle.

Ditch the band

Long hair can be tricky to keep in a swimming cap as it tends to bunch up. Most of us quickly grab a hair band and tie it up. Unfortunately hair bands cause tension to the scalp and become uncomfortable. Rather leave the hair loose and tuck it into the swimming cap.

Always stretch

Lace your fingers together loosely and put your hand into the cap. Align the seam over your knuckles and gently stretch the cap outwards.

Brace yourself 

Have your child stand in front of you , with their back to you. With your hands still in the stretched cap gently lower it over your child’s head, until your fingers feel the eyebrows. This will be low enough. Now slowly slide your hand down until the cap is on their head.

Dont forget to tuck

Simply lift the edges of the swimming cap and tuck in any stray pieces of hair. Adjust the cap in order for your child to be comfortable.

What goes on must come off

To remove, hook your fingers underneath the front seam and lift away from the hair.
