What’s the Purpose of a Shower Cap?
Though many people associate shower caps with babies, anyone can benefit from using a shower cap while in (or getting ready for) a shower. Most importantly, they’re great for keeping your hair dry and style—especially if you want to wear it straight or flat iron it.
Where can you get them?
You can buy a sustainable shower cap at many specialty stores and online retailers. There are various options on Amazon, Etsy, Alibaba, and eBay that come with many designs.
Unique Designs for a Shower Cap
Caps are made from different materials; some have rubber or silicone bands, while others use Velcro closures. Many look like flip-flops or sandals—or even fruit such as an orange. It’s up to you to decide which is best for you!
While a plastic shower cap is inexpensive and easy to find, it isn’t recommended for people with long or very curly hair because it will rub uncomfortably against their scalps. For people who do not want to worry about their shower cap slipping off during their showers, specially designed hats come complete with suction cups attached. The suction cups keep them firmly in place on your head throughout your entire bathing experience!
Some brands even provide you with a shower cap in stylish patterns and colors to add some flair to your bathroom routine. Some allow customized logos for their customers. Bows are also in fashion these days.
Instructions to Buy a Shower Cap
Be sure to read the instructions before wearing a shower cap. Some contain directions about proper care, while others warn against their use along with certain hair-care products. Whatever type of cap you buy, it should fit comfortably over your head without getting stuck or falling off during your shower. If it doesn’t fit right, don’t force it on—you could get burned if water seeps through!
There are different varieties in a shower cap such as washable, waterproof, medical, smoke-proof, disposable, etc. Choose a material that works well with your hair.
Taking Care of Your Shower Caps
For long-lasting shower caps, it’s necessary to take care of them properly. To prevent mold, mildew, and other issues related to storing and cleaning your shower cap, you should only keep them in a dry place and use a mild detergent. If you notice your shower cap starting to wear out, don’t wash it; try finding replacements for older shower caps.
Additionally, if you live in an area where you get a lot of rain or snow during certain seasons, we recommend purchasing additional shower caps so that they can be used while one is being cleaned. And even though they might not cost much money individually, having to replace them frequently can add up quickly!
