      I use a swim cap to keep the water out of my ears and to prevent damage by the chemicals in the pools, and the salt in the ocean water. They also prevent my hair from getting pulled when I put on a mask or take it off. In the open water a bright colored one helps boaters see you in the water. This prevents some accidents from happening.

      As a swimmer, I agree 100% with what you're saying here. Although I don't have long hair, all of the girls on the team wear caps so the chlorine doesn't ruin their hair. If I did not cut my hair short, the chlorine would ruin it too.
