How Do You Put on a Swim Cap?

To put on a swim cap with ease, gather your hair, and wet it to ensure the cap slides smoothly over it. Put the cap over your hands, and stretch it as wide as possible. Lower the cap's front onto your forehead, and pull it back to cover your hair.

  1. Gather and wet your hair

    If you have long hair, twist or gather it close to your head. Wet your hair to lubricate it for when the cap slides over it.

  2. Widen and wear the cap

    With your hands inside the cap, stretch it as wide as possible. Snag the front of the cap on your forehead, and pull it back to cover your hair. Avoid using your fingernails when manipulating it.

  3. Ask for help

    If it's too challenging to put it on by yourself, ask for a friend's assistance. Hold the front of the cap on your forehead while your friend pulls it back wide enough to cover your head.
