Save The Blow Dry

Save The Blow Dry* - £14.95

As a regular abuser of bleach & heat, I try to look after my hair as much as possible. I normally only wash my hair once a week to stop it from drying out. I had my roots done last Friday and to keep my hair in the best condition I try not to wash my hair for several days before & after any bleaching session. This allows your hair's natural oils to build up & reduce the damage. Going almost two weeks without a shower would be pretty darn gross so I always use shower caps to keep my hair dry when I need to wash my body. Let's be honest, most shower caps are a bit rubbish. I've never liked how they would leave my hair looking frizzy & flat, especially if I'd spent ages blow drying it the day before. So I was really excited to try out a somewhat revolutionary shower cap called Save The Blow Dry.

This cute shower cap promises to banish bathroom frizz & keep your hair looking like you've just styled it. Shower caps I've tried in the past were either waterproof or made of towelling but neither were brilliant for my hairdo. Save The Blow Dry combines both features to create a truly effective shower cap. The outer layer is a waterproof plastic cap which repels the water while the internal layer of super-absorbent micro weave towelling zaps humidity & condensation. It's incredibly roomy so even if you've got really long or thick hair, you'll be able to fit it all in. The elastic is comfortable & stops any little strands of hair from escaping. To avoid putting tension on my hair I use a clip to hold the bulk of my hair, then I pop the cap on top & tuck in any loose ends. After showering with this cap on my hair is left feeling perfectly dry & bouncy. It's actually quite amazing as it really does eliminate any trace of moisture. It makes getting ready in the morning super quick as I don't have to fiddle about with my hair for ages afterwards. I never thought I'd be singing the praises of a simple shower cap but this is such a fantastic product!

Save The Blow Dry is a dual-purpose product because you can use it with hair masks too. There's nothing better than a coconut oil mask after getting your hair bleached. My last visit to the hairdressers resulted in a few nasty chemical burns. To get rid of the scabs I simply rubbed coconut oil all over my scalp & hair, turned Save The Blow Dry inside out & popped it on top of my hair for the day. My scalp was soothed, my hair was nourished & Save The Blow Dry kept everything in place. Hair masks work a lot better when you keep your head warm so using this cap intensifies the effect of your treatment & helps to contain the mess. I'm so impressed by this shower cap. It really does keep my hair dry & looking exactly as it did before I stepped in the shower. It's not the most glamorous looking thing ever, but when has a shower cap ever looked sexy? It does make me think I'd look pretty good with turquoise hair though! It also comes in pink if that's what you prefer. I think that the £14.95 price tag is quite decent considering I've never seen a shower cap like this on the market before & it definitely lives up to all of it's claims. It's the kind of product that no girl should be without. Showers will never be the same again...

  1. I need this! I used to have a cheaper shower cap from Morrisons (I think it had octopus on it? Dead sexy!) but it used to sort of get my hair wet anyway and it would go really limp and disgusting! I like the idea of using this for masks too :)

  2. This looks fab. I wish I could get away with only washing my hair once a week. Mine would be awful! How do you keep yours looking good?

  3. I really like the idea that's it's got a double use! I never use shower caps anymore because all the one's I've had in the past were total crap! So now I just bare with the wet fringe when I get out of the shower >.< I might just have to treat myself to this though! To top it all off, it's super cute too! x

  4. So nice post!

  5. This looks a lot better quality than most shower caps! I only wash my hair once a week normally, although it's a bit dry at the moment so going to start twice a week just so I can do a lot of overnight conditioning treatments. I do really need a shower cap with a towel bit though as my hair absorbs any steam and goes mad!
