I was actually considering getting an old school heat cap, but sometimes I don’t like to be confined. I want to multi-task while I’m deep conditioning. This is the same reason I don’t use my hooded dryer :/

I was intrigued by this “HotHead Thermal Conditioning Cap” after I saw a post on my Facebook timeline. I followed the link to an Etsy store and discovered that the caps were filled with Flaxseeds. To use the cap, you’d microwave the entire thing, put on a plastic cap and then the HotHead. It is said to maintain heat for up to 40 minutes. My curiosity was piqued so of course I started looking for reviews. I couldn’t find many, but one of the complaints was that the Hot head is not washable.
I’m not sure how that would work out because deep conditioner almost always seeps out of the plastic cap and over time it will build up on the rim of the cap. Despite that minor detail, I’m still considering it. I will contact the shop owner with my queries before I make a decision.
I have also considering getting a standing salon quality steamer, but I haven’t made a final decision of that either. In the meantime, I’ll alternate between my current steamer and the hooded dryer.
Do you deep condition with heat? What do you use?
Until next time
