Are you struggling with dry, frizzy curls or lifeless, weighed down waves? I have experienced both in my curly girl journey. This past week, I discovered that I have low porosity hair. In short, this means that moisture does not easily penetrate the hair strand. Heat is your friend in this situation. It aids in the moisturizing affects of your curly hair products. Specifically, deep conditioners. This week, I decided to try using a microwavable heat cap to deep condition my hair.

Heat Cap Review

Here I am modeling the conditioning heat cap with my favorite earrings. Any chance I get, I like to promote my friend’s hand made jewelry shop, LIVRose Jewelry.

The thermal cap fits snug on my head without me feeling claustrophobic. I have a small sized head with thick, shoulder length hair. It all fits nicely inside the heat cap.

The heat coming from the cap is warm and feels soothing. You don’t have to worry about burning your hands or head.

I used a thin, plastic shower cap underneath to keep the heat cap clean. I also kept it on for the recommended 10 minutes. Next time I will try 15 to see if I can get even better results.

My Heat Cap Results

Normally, when I deep condition my hair in the shower, it leaves a heavy, greasy cast on my hair and roots. This means 5 to 7 days of dirty feeling hair. Using the heat cap for conditioning changed everything!

My hair is soft, curls all the way to the roots and full of volume. I’m in love!!

Here’s a before and after using the same hair products. These photos were taken one week apart. You can see the difference specifically around my roots and length.

Heat Cap Wash Day Routine

1. Cleanse hair with Surface Bassu Shampoo, wring out water and comb through As I AM Coconut Cowash.

2. Leave conditioner for 10 minutes with heat cap. Rinse out completely.

3. Finger comb and scrunch Camille Rose Leave-In Conditioner, Only Curls Hydrating Creme, Only Curls Enhancing Curl Gel and Kinky  Curly Curling Custard.

4. Finish by plopping hair for 15 to 30 minutes.

5. Diffuse hair with warm heat until 50% dry. Scrunch a mixture of water and Kinky Curly Curling Custard to hair.

6. Finish diffusing until 100% dry. SOTC with Righteous Roots RX Oil.

Conclusion

With my first deep conditioner treatment using the heat cap, I noticed my curls felt clean, soft, defined and voluminous. I think leaving the cap on for additional time would give me even better results. For the price point of $15, the investment is well worth the price.
