We’re Talking Shower Caps


I have been meaning to do a post about the hunt for a good shower cap for quite some time now. Then, I get home and Ky (Fifth Wave GOCer) had e-mailed me to share a post from her site on that very topic!

The longer my hair gets the harder it is for it to fit in a shower cap. Lately I’ve given up and moved on to plastic bags. Still, I wanted a reusable option that looked less ridiculous. After some dedicated googling, I found them. They’re called Celestial Crowns and they are BIG. Here are the dimensions from the site:

DIMENSIONS: Mini Crowns are approx 12 inches diameter/Large Crowns approx 16 in. diameter/ Extra Large Crowns approx 20 in. diameter (about the size of an XL pizza pie), when compared
to a regular shower cap which is approx. 8-10 inches in diameter.

The minis would have been roomy enough, But I ordered larges because, if this challenge is successful, I’ll need the extra room:). I ordered one in maroon (for henna) and one in black (for regular conditioning), but there are  other colors and patterns available.

*Here’s* the link to the shop. Enter code “ROYALTY” at checkout for 10% off before shipping.

Margie (the owner I presume) was very nice and shipped the caps promptly. It’s standard shipping, so delivery should take about a week.

As for looking less ridiculous, I’m not sure. I kinda look like toad from Super Mario Bros.


LOL!!  That’s great!  Thanks so much for sharing Ky!! That’s some good research there!!

Though size must be considered, my struggle with shower caps has always been trying to find one that REALLY seals out steam and water! In the past, my hair would *POOF* at the slightest hint of humidity. And, maybe I just don’t shower right, but my edges ALWAYS seem to get wet, even when I tie a scarf around them or wear a satin bonnet, don one or two plastic baggies and THEN add the shower cap *sigh.* However, I’ve had the best luck with this $6.95 Betty Dain shower cap (also available in another print), which I first saw on Amazon in my Google search for “the best shower cap,” but then found at my local Sally’s ($6.59 with a Club Card!).  

It’s big, it’s roomy and it has two rows of elastic! That is what I think makes it work better for me than other shower caps. I don’t have a problem with steam anymore. But, my edges still tend to get wet if I’m not careful to ensure that I don’t get my face and neck under the shower stream.

Have you tried either of these shower caps? What do you think? Found something that works even better and does everything except take out the trash?! Please share, because the search for the Holy Hair Grail doesn’t stop with products ;)! 

just because.

  3. I have always had the exact same issue with shower caps. Fed up, I did some intense googling a couple months ago and finally came to the conclusion that I needed a terry lined cap. I would rather have microfiber but that’s asking for too much. 🙂 Anyway, I found one at CVS for $4 and believe it or not, that is the answer! It’s plenty big (I have a LOT of hair); I can even keep my hair clipped on top of my head. Somehow the terry cloth absorbs any moisture before it gets to your hairline. Try it! I promise, that’s the trick.


    • Reealllly? I guess that DOES make sense … I think that I always worried about those drying my hair or making it frizz. Hmmm … Well, I guess I could wear a satin bonnet under it and it should still do the same thing right? Thank you for the suggestion and review Gaga Girl!!!
