Whatever happend to the swim cap? You don’t see it around as much as you did back in the day. These days it’s sexy to get your hair soaking wet so you can walk around flinging it people’s faces. The swim cap is for protecting a woman’s hair from the clorine in pools or salt water. It’s probably a fashion antique more than anything these days. They are still around but you probably have to go to a fashion specialty store in order to find one, or just ask your grandmother, she probably still has one laying around.
