Help the hair absorb more nutrients from the conditioner. Expect increased elasticity, smoother, softer, and stronger hair in just 3 applications.
The thermal heat allows your conditioner to penetrate deep into the follicle (even with low porosity hair). This opens the scalp naturally to allow the oil in your treatment to do its magic.
The description states that there are 3 disposable caps included. Is this not true?
It has the main red color cap, plus two disposable shower caps underneath. The disposable caps are used to stop any hair products from damaging your heat cap.
Does this work for cellophane treatment/dye?
Yeah sure, just as long as you are not using it to dye your hair, but instead using the heat cap to condition her that is dyed. It works for all hair types and styles.
Is a plastic cap included?
Yes, 2 disposable caps are included.
Is this cap impregnated with any kind of moisturizer - or is it simply the actual steam that makes it work?
No this is not impregnated with any conditioners. The cap has a gel filling that heats up in the microwave, you apply your own deep conditioner and put the plastic cap on then the heated cap.
Can you leave the cap on for more than 15mins?
Yes that would be fine. Personally I always leave it on for up to 30 mins. I just have to pop it back in the microwave in between.
Can I use more than once a week?
Yes you can use it in accordance with whatever deep conditioning hair regime you wish!
What is the minimum size head this would stay in place with? Mine is 21.5"/54.5 cm and I don't want it to be too loose?
That’s absolutely fine, it will fit just fine. I use this for both my daughter and myself. You won’t have to worry about it being too loose.
Do you have to use the disposable plastic cap?
It depends what you have on your hair. I usually have a hair mask/ oils so I use the plastic cap to keep it clean. If my hair is just a little wet from water then I wouldn’t have to use the cap. It is however recommended to use the cap as it helps the hair more.
How do you wash these type of hair cap? Is it washing machine safe? Don’t want it to smell like old coconut oil!
Just using regular soap and water. You shouldn't need to wash it too frequently providing you use the included disposable shower caps. It is not washing machine safe.
My hair is frizzy will this help the effectiveness of my conditioner?
Yes definitely, I have naturally dry curly hair and it definitely does help the conditioner/ treatment penetrate the hair , I use it with my treatment & cap once a week & I wrap a turby towel over it to keep it snug as well.
Do you need microwave to heat it up?
Yes you need to use a microwave.
Doesn't heat damage, so how would this work?
Yes excessive heat does damage especially direct heat but not with the cap. By using the cap while your hair is wet the heat allows your hair cuticles to open and the product to penetrate better. If you're worried about heat damage the same thing can be accomplished by doing a regular deep condition but just using a plain shower cap, and heat from your own body. However I've done both but the results (moisture) from the heat cap were so much better!
