An unexpected secret to hair as soft as silk.

First things first, what exactly is a deep conditioning cap? A deep conditioning cap is a hair tool that uses heat to allow hair treatments to penetrate the hair cuticle and shaft. This allows for a more intense conditioning experience.

An easy way to set your deep conditioners and hair oils into overdrive, different caps use varying methods to generate heat. All deep conditioning caps have the same goal: to help your hair product of choice do its best work. Here are some things to keep in mind when buying a deep conditioning cap:



Keep This in Mind When Buying a Deep Conditioning Cap

This tool is especially useful in the drying winter months.

1. Consider your resources before buying a deep conditioning cap.

Deep conditioning caps come in three different forms. Some are microwavable, some plug into the wall and some use their own technology to generate heat. If you’re more of a toaster oven kind of girl and don’t have a microwave at your disposal then a cap that plugs into the wall might be best for you. If you’re on the move and looking for a travel-friendly option that doesn’t require a plug adaptor to get going then a self-generating cap might be your best bet.

2. Keep in mind the length and thickness of your hair.

Calling all the ladies with a lot (and we mean a lot!) of hair. If you’ve ever purchased a cute new shower cap just to come home and find that you can’t fit all of your hair into it without it popping off, then you’ll want to take special care to consider the size of your cap. Read reviews and make sure to purchase a cap that can handle all of your strands

3. Stock up on the right products for underneath your conditioning cap.

Hair oils and deep conditioners are their best selves while working under a cap. If you’re looking for a product that will breathe some life back into your strands and give you a fresh start, try Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Conditioner.
