Hello ladies I was wondering what the best method for not getting hair so tangled? Any ideas out there I thought about a swim cap but not too sure about that and my hair is just below shoulder length and is layered so it isnt long enough to french braid. Any suggestions?

I have just shorter than shoulder length, layered hair so I use Dee Rags - a lady of Scubaboard sells them on the internet; I picked a couple of squid caps for a real good price - someone posted a website that sells them discounted or clearance, so i got two for about $15. I also keep a small bottle of VO5 Sheer Hairdressing and a comb in my dive bag for when I get out of the water.

Cool thank you I will have to check them out. Do you have any idea what the website was or where I can get them?

Thanks for the link they look like they might work. Do they stay on pretty good in the water? Not sure how I would look in one but if the work who cares. If you get the link for the squid caps let me know. Thanks again.

Occasionally I have issues partway thru a dive, but I think that is user error! If it bothers me, I slide it off and stuff it in a pocket.

The squid caps I'm just learning to mess with ... did a lake dive on Sunday and it stayed right in place. So we'll see!

I wouldn't recommend a swim cap - it makes your mask strap really hard to get on and off. I always knocked the swim cap out of place when putting my mask on, which defeated the entire purpose. I've taken to french braiding and then using bobby pins to hold up the fly aways. I make sure to anchor them in places that my mask strap won't lay over them and push them into my head.

I'm planning to get a beanie cap (I can't stand hoods) and see if that'll help a little too.

I have long hair and have used Scubadorags for a while now, and am completely happy with them. They stay on, come in lots of funky colours and last well. I also like them as they are longer than others I have seen and I can get all my hair under them. There's a "tutorial" on their site showing you how to put them on:

As a shaved head guy, I use the extra large bandana (about $3) to prevent sunburn. It also works to hold your hair in place. On my mask, I have an Original Slap Strap since 1989. It slides on so easily without pulling the hair I had back then, the skin now, and also the bandana when I wear it.

I also use DeeRags they are very well made and last...plus Dee is a friend of mine so I love to hawk her rags for her:smiley2:

I also found something new that I like I switch out between the DeeRags and Buffs...

- PlanetBuff.com (http://www.planetbuff.com/Original-Buff/c5/index.html?page=all)

they can be worn many different ways....and it keeps you hair out of your face...I also wear mine under my helmet when I am ride my husbands motorcycle.....
