Product Review

Professional Conditioning Heat Cap

This professional thermal conditioning heat cap is just what you need for those deep penetrating hair and scalp treatments. It conditions and treats hair that has been dried out by over-processing and other damage. Used, along with the proper scalp treatment, it helps relieve dry, itchy scalp. Keeps hair both soft and manageable. By opening up the cuticles of the hair, it allows moisturizing treatments to penetrate to the layers of the hair where they can do their work.

* Better than bubble dryers because it won't dry out skin
* Great for use with heat-activated products like deep conditioners, hot oil treatments, the Natural-Laxer, etc.
* Automatic thermostat controlled unit prevents overheating
* Unique design provides evenly-heated treatments.
* Hi, Medium and Low settings give you control
* Convenient washable liner included
* One year Limited Warranty

Use instructions:

1. Preheat cap on high setting
2. Apply treatment to hair (hot oil, conditioner, color, Natural-Laxer Plus or other)
3. Adjust heat cap to desired setting
4. Wait 2 minutes
5. Place cap on head for a 15-20 minute treatment or according to directions of the product you are using

I love to collect combs. Combs are sometimes thought of as evil, they can rip and tear at fragile hair. The trick is finding the right comb/s for different things we do to our hair. On wash day, the best comb for hair is a detangling comb and for everyday use on fine or any highly textured hair, a wide tooth comb is best for minimizing breakage. To rollerset hair, i like to use a fine tooth comb, after detangling with a wide tooth comb. There is something that i learned from a haircare guru that was very important, she said "no matter what comb you use, make sure the teeth are smooth". If you look at most commercial combs under a microscope, you will see the teeth are jagged. This cannot be seen by the naked eye, but it can damage your hair, making micro nicks and tears, which will eventually damage and weather hair. So, what do you do to make sure your combs have smooth teeth? Well, you can order your combs from specialty stores that sell smooth toothed combs, or you can sand down the teeth of your combs with sandpaper until smooth. I have done this, and i have noticed a huge difference with breakage. One such store with smooth tooth combs is a company called
I am no way affiliated with this company. I just love their products
