Thermal Heat Caps - Give Your Conditioning Treatments Super Power!
Thermal heat caps are the perfect compliment for deep conditioning treatments. Regular caps just don’t compare to the power you get from using an alternate heat source. They hold up extremely well and can be used over and over again, so they're a great investment! You can't go wrong when you use them regularly!
Your hair is constantly exposed to many fluctuating weather conditions every season of every year. These changing conditions can affect your hair in a very negative way. Your hair requires almost twice as much moisture as your skin. You simply can’t moisturize it enough!
Your scalp produces a great amount of heat all the time. Normally, a tremendous amount of heat escapes during normal conditions. Wearing a regular shower-type cap can help but artificial heat (via a thermal heat), speeds up the process and super power’s the products you’re using. The more you use thermal caps, the more effective your conditioning treatments will be!
Straight hair becomes straighter. Curly hair becomes curlier! All types of hair can benefit from using thermal heat!
Your hair needs ample moisture to be manageable, pliable, smooth, and shiny. The heat produced from thermal heat caps helps open your hair cuticles so the products, (like deep treatments), you’re using can penetrate deeply into the hair shaft. That’s what makes thermal heat caps so valuable. Even the cheapest of products can give you at least some benefits!

Determining the appropriate intervals for applying protein treatments will largely depend on the condition of your hair, as well as your regular hair care regimen. For damaged hair

Colors lift much faster and more efficiently when you have extra heat to assist them. Anyone whose used one can provide testimony to that! Thermal heat caps can give you the extra 'oomph' you need, when the going gets tough!

are a great home appliance to have around. They can really pump up the volume on deep conditioning treatments when you need it most!
