How do you get them to stay on?
Thanks for the sensible suggestions. Went OW this morning and tried Plum's tactic of getting it wet first and all I can say is that it was like wrestling with a wet kipper. There was no way it was even going to get on my head, let alone stay there .
Will try the talc option tomorrow.
Saffers - i end up looking like a chicken with a flappy bit of latex on the crown of my head. Not an attractive look when you're trying to pull any of the Hunks In Trunks.
On a positive note and totally unconnected with this thread, I wore my pool goggles to the lake and they did not leak at all so will be ditching the full-face jobby-things
LOL......I'm not convinced that any girlie looks attractive to those Hunks In Trunks when in our swim costumes and goggles.......they're not very flattering!
Goggles are a rather personally thing I find.......those big face jobbies don't do it for me! I struggle to find ones that don't leak and don't fog. Mine aren't too bad at the mo.....a little fogging at times but no leaking which is a bonus.
I shall try to get to open water swim tonight. I seem to have a wall up between me and the OW.....don't have a clue why as I am not scared of OW as fairly strong swimmer! I'm thinking it was swimming when it was bliddy freezing has just put me off the whole idea. I keep finding reasons not to be there on a Monday.
I indulged myself at Datchet at the weekend. There were some Hunks In Trunks (and these were defo good looking with a fine set of abs) getting out of their wetsuits under the showers at the side of the lake and rubbing themselves all over.
Hubba, hubba, hubba
Er - not sure if it's the same problem but my cap always rises up a bit as I swim. As soon as I realise I just squelch it back down again. My old cap had a small hole in it and didn't rise up at all - so you could try making a small hole and see if that helps.
Does your hat actually fall off or just rise up a bit? Does it matter?
Do you use a leave in conditioner or something that's making your hair extra slippery? If so, could shampooing before getting in the pool help?
Waff - it happens on all my caps, both silicone and latex. My latest is my Pirate one and that was good for a session or two, now it's just like all the others. Hence why I am wondering if I have an odd-shaped head.
I don't use any products on my hair (low-maintenance girl, me) but I have considered wetting hair and cap to see if that helps.
Pkim - I would rather do a Sinaed O'Connor than have the night shift glue and nail the cap in place, thank you very much
