Description"Hot Head is a unique microwavable deep conditioning heat cap created by a professional hair stylist. It offers an easy and stylish way to achieve the results of a salon quality conditioning treatment at home. Each Hot Head is handmade with love, and constructed from quality natural materials."
How it works"The Hot Head heat cap is filled with renewable flax seed which will generate heat when warmed in the microwave. It's reusable and is the most environmentally friendly way to deep condition your hair with heat at home. There is no need to plug it into an outlet or use batteries to power the heat."
How to use"Heating times are approximate. Microwaves will vary. Always watch closely. Place Hot Head flat on a clean glass or ceramic place, elastic facing up. Heat 2 min at 1,000 watts, flipping inside out at the halfway mark. If microwave is not equipped with rotating plate then rotate and flip by hand every 30 sec. Adjust heat setting or time if needed. If additional heat is needed proceed in 10-20 sec increments flipping inside out and laying flat with elastic facing up each time until desired heat is achieved.
Gently towel dry hair before applying conditioner...Place plastic cap completely over conditioner immersed hair. Follow with heated Hot Head. For best results wear 20-45 min. Remove completely and let hair cool for 5 min before rinsing with cold water."
How to clean"Your Hot Head can be spot cleaned using warm water and a mild detergent. This tends to be sufficient since you will always be wearing a disposable or reusable plastic shower cap as a barrier between the Hot Head and your conditioner immersed hair. If your cap gets a little linty, simply roll over it with a lint roller to make it come clean again."
My takeI love this cap! I've used it for my pre-poo deep conditioning and really like how easy it is to use. The greatest benefit of this cap is it allows me to deep condition with heat and not be tied down to one place. The cap gets hot and stays hot for a long time. And due to wearing a plastic cap underneath the Hot Head cap, the heat causes some steaming - bonus!
Some things to note are when I first put the Hot Head cap on it felt heavy, but I soon got used to it. Also, I haven't had to clean the cap yet, so I'm not sure how easy, or not, it will be.
Final verdictAfter using the Hot Head cap consistently for a few weeks my hair felt more moisturized and its manageability increased. I recommend giving this cap a try and see what it does for your hair. I am definitely going to purchase another one when this one wears out.
