Get more out of your hair mask
Heat doesn’t always have to be damaging to your hair, and oftentimes it helps. From sitting under the dryer when getting highlights to speed up the color-lifting to applying a mask before getting comfy on a lounge-chair at the beach or by the pool, low-level warmth is great from driving ingredients deeper into the hair shaft. But what if you want to reap the benefits of heat in the dead of winter or after the sun has set? That’s where Hot Head Thermal Hair Care comes in.
This may look like a shower cap—but it’s not (although I suppose it could be). Designed to act as a safe heat source, you microwave it at three or so 30-45 second intervals, turning it inside out in between for even heating. Then slip on a disposable plastic shower cap (you can find them super-cheap on Amazon), cover with the Hot Head and chill out for at least 20 minutes. If you’re deep into a Netflix binge, you can also reheat it and watch another episode. For best results, Hot Head recommends allowing your hair to cool for five minutes before rinsing with cool water and styling as usual (if you so desire).
It’s definitely a lot easier (and less expensive) than getting a treatment at the salon—and the leopard print is so on trend. P.S. They come in adult and kids’ sizes so you can mask and match with your mini-me!
