NEW & IMPROVED!! A better, snugger fit, smooth soft silicone with less static, thicker and more durable.

Share on Social Media

We are thrilled with our new swim cap design! The quality is exceptional, the fit is snugger and minimises water leakage, the silicone is soft and less prone to static which makes slipping it on so much easier.

It's important you allow your dreadlocks to dry thoroughly after swimming and showering etc so this is a really convenient way to keep your dreadlocks dry while still enjoying the water.

SIZING: This Large cap is suitable for dreads which extend no further than the middle of your back. If you need less or more volume, then you may wish to consider the Extra Large or Long Hair Swim Cap.

WEAR & CARE: The caps are made from 100% silicone and just like any swim cap, if you completely submerge your head a little water may seep in under the edges. For the most part, your dreads will remain dry and any wetness that may occur will dry quickly.

They can be stretched to fit over the head but take care not to tear the silicone by over stretching or with sharp nails or jewellery.

Keeps the dreads mostly dry. A bit leaky round the ears, but not too dramatically.

Best swim cap ever

With afro hair, I have braids quite often, so I never could find a swimming cap that fits. I searched far and wide. until it occurred to me that the dread community might have something. It's true to size so I should have ordered large. But it looks great and keeps my hair dry.

Happy Hair and Swimming Freedom!

I love my Dread Cap. My hair was getting so heavy when I was swimming and I love to swim. Getting it wet every day through summer meant my hair was also never drying completely. The Dread Cap means that my hair now gets to dry out properly even though I am swimming every day. I have used my Dread Cap at both the swimming pool and the beach. I may have bought it a little bigger than I needed and did worry that the 'air bobble' might cause problems when I dived doing snorkeling but, it has all been awesome. Tracking on postage was comforting and it arrived very promptly with a lovely hair band gift inside too! Totally recommend this product - I love it and have already been sharing this with dread folks that I meet in the surf! Get a cap and keep swimming friends!
