My hair is damaged, fragile and likes to do the break dance – so I only wash it once a week. But I spend the other six days trying (often in vain) to prevent my hair from wilting or frizzing up. I’m a Living Proof disciple and use their No Frizz Straight Styling Treatment every time I shampoo, which averts weather-related hairdo disasters. Unfortunately, my mane’s main adversary is in my own home.
The shower and my chemically straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them all. And no matter how much they cost – from the flimsy free ones you swipe from a hotel to the more expensive caps – they’ve always let me down. They inadvertently allow moisture in. Or the elastic band loosens, allowing strands of hair to escape the shower cap and get all soaked up. Don’t you just HATE that?
After decades of the shower (and sub par shower caps) putting a damper on my do, I didn’t think it was possible to make it an entire week without steam wrecking my blow dry/flat iron handiwork. That is, until I discovered The Perfect Shower Cap from Blow. Seriously, the name does not exaggerate.
The Perfect Shower Cap is designed to protect and prolong blow dry styled hair with its 100% terry liner that soaks up shower steam and moisture before it tackles the tresses. The cap, itself, is oversized to provide 360 degree protection by fitting over your entire hairline. A moisture-blocking seal along the edges provides a snug, comfy fit – and ensures that no tendrils go A.W.O.L.
I want to kiss the folks at Blow for sending me a press sample, because it’s changed my life. I know that may sound melodramatic, but when you have been using a defective product and then you find something that truly works, it’s like a miracle.
I’ll never use another shower cap. Never. It lives up to its name and delivers on all promises. Plus it looks super cute and comes in a case for easy travel and gym use.
So if you’re like the old me with a drawer full of shoddy shower caps that blow, you’d be a wise woman to invest $18 in The Perfect Shower Cap by Blow.
