Some important things to think about when picking a cap is that it should be tight enough to remain on your head throughout a race or workout, but not so tight that it leaves a line or begins to hurt your head. It’s also important to note that the purpose of a swimming cap is not to keep hair dry but to keep it away from the face and act as a filter against chlorine.
