I don't know why (maybe because I'm a *very* avid shower cap user...shhhh...oh, and I heart Philip B. products...) but I found this lil' tidbit that landed in my inbox very useful and thought you might, too. You're welcome! xo
Philip B., Hollywood's preeminent hair treatment expert, says the one thing every woman should have in their bathroom is a shower cap!
Owning a shower cap is essential in order to maintain healthy, shiny hair this winter. After applying a leave-in treatment or deep conditioner to your hair, follow these three simple steps:
· Warm hair with a blow-dryer for a couple of minutes
· Pop a shower cap on top
· Let the treatment sink in for 20 minutes or longer
This technique will use the natural heat of your body to make the conditioning treatment thinner in consistency and therefore better able to seep into parched hair. At the same time, the humidity beneath the cap will help open up the hair cuticle, allowing for more effective absorption of the treatment.
