Hi, this is Michelle McLafferty, and these are the best swim caps to wear for women's long hair. Choosing a swim cap is something that you want to have a few things to take into consideration. Swim caps keep you more hydrodynamic as you are moving through the water and they also help to keep your hair out of your face. If you are a woman with long hair, you want a cap that has a little bit more flexibility and is a slightly softer material so it doesn't break or tear at your hair. If you go to any major sporting goods store, you will see that they have a variety of different sizes and different types of swim caps. Primarily they come in a latex or in a silicone. I would recommend for long hair to use a silicone based swim cap. They are a slightly softer, more flexible type of fabric so they won't pull or stretch your hair too much yet they are still snug enough to keep your hair in place and make you dynamic as you move through the water. So if you are just going to be doing water exercise, you can buy a cap that fits a little bit looser, if it's just going to be supporting your hair. If you are a competitive swimmer and you want to increase your speed as you move underneath the water look for a swim cap that fits a little bit more tight around your head.
