Soul Cap

The swim cap is big enough to encompass the thick braids or perhaps locs that are within them. The swim cap is from a black owned brand called Soul Cap.

Soul Cap hit the news in 2021 due to some poor decisions the International Swimming Federation made that affected black Olympic swimmers. However, this controversy has inadvertently led to some much deserved positive attention to the swimming apparel brand, Soul Cap. Their swimming caps are inclusive for loc wearers at all points in their journey. As for some more background on the company, the brand was started by two black men, Michael and Toks, after an encounter with a black woman struggling to get her afro in a swimming cap. After seeing the gap in the market for voluminous hair, the founders later created Soul Cap.

Digital Loctician

She is a content creator in the locs community, serving us with her knowledge of being a loctician, conducting research, and having locs herself.
