I’ve wanted a Hot Head heating cap for well over a year now (maybe longer) and finally caved and got one (cost: $29.95 from Hot Head Etsy Store).
As much as I love my steamer and Gold N’ Hot condition cap (which I’ve had since 2009!), both require that I remain tethered to a nearby outlet. As you may have already guessed, I was drawn to these Hot Head heating caps because there’s no cord to plug into an outlet. Deep conditioning with heat all while moving freely around? Oh yea, I’m excited. I kinda feel like I’m in a Southwest Airlines commercial: ding! I am now free to move about the country apartment.
How does it work? “The Hot Head heat cap is filled with renewable flax seed which will generate heat when warmed. It is also reusable and 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. With just a minute or two in the microwave it will produce up to 45 minutes of heat. The fact that there are no cords and no plugs means that you are free to move about while deep conditioning your hair.” Source: product listing from Hot Head Etsy shop.

Purple is my favorite color so I’m so in love with the pattern/color of this heating cap.
Can’t wait to try this heating cap out next month… won’t be trying it this month because I’m sticking to my October goal of using my steamer every time I deep condition.
Oh and I forgot to mention it’s reversible.
Update: I was impatient and used this cap while I pre-pooed during yesterday’s wash, so my first impressions will be up soon.
Update #2: My first wash day post using the Hot Head cap is posted here.
