Hot Head Conditioning Cap, Come To Mama

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.ย 

How does it work?ย “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.


  1. This sounds awesome! Sometimes, the only reason I don't use heat during deep conditioning is because I don't want to stay in the same place for that long. Might have to keep an eye out for that.

  2. yesssss!!!! I've been waiting for someone else to review and one of my fave hair bloggers is doing just that, yessss!!!!!!!!!

  3. YAY! I'm glad you got it. I keep considering getting a Hair Therapy wrap…but talk myself out of it every time because I just can't justify buying yet another deep conditioning item! lol

  4. that's awesome Jeni! when I first heard about these I tried checking it out on etsy, but they didn't have any available at the time. I hope they have some pink ones! ๐Ÿ™‚
