How to Save the Blowdry!

STB 5Anybody that knows me well probably knows this rather vile fact about me: I don’t wash my hair very often. Twice a week is my absolute maximum, and that’s only if I’m going somewhere or if like, a bird has pooed on me or something. My main reason for this is that I have a weave, and to take care of my extensions I need to avoid exposing them to too much heat styling. Rather than letting them dry naturally or anything boring like that, I choose to keep actually getting my hair wet to a minimum and prefer to keep things fresh with dry shampoo.

It was for this reason that I was genuinely so excited to receive this brand new shower cap from Save the Blowdry. I use a shower cap most days and while it generally gets the job done, I usually end up having to still style my hair a bit after as water inevitably sneaks in at the bottom, or the humidity leaves me looking poofy. Well – NO LONGER, MY FRIENDS.

STB 4The shower caps from Save the Blowdry have two layers. The outer layer is the waterproof plastic bit you get on others, and the inner layer is an absorbant micro-weave towel. It’s this part that makes it so different to others, because this layer protects your hair from the condensation and humidity.

STB 3And, as an added bonus, the shower cap can be turned inside out for when you’re using a hair mask and want to increase the intensity of the treatment with added heat.

I was so impressed with the concept of Save the Blowdry that I couldn’t wait to try it out – and my impressed levels hit the roof. The cap is massive, so will keep your hair in no matter how much you have or how thick it is. The elastic edge is also super-secure so there’s no danger or water dripping in whatsoever. After removing the shower cap my hair was as bone dry as it was beforehand. And on top of this – LOOK HOW CUTE IT IS.

STB COLLAGE 1I would like to state, just to stop you all from having nightmares, that I was actually fully dressed when taking these photos. Fully dressed. Standing in my shower. God, the things I do for this blog.

Overall, as if you can’t tell from my gushing, I’m really happy with this product. The packaging is cute too, so I think it would make a really good Christmas gift for anyone you know who’s into that Soap and Glory-esque, vintage vibe. These retail for £14.95 and can be bought online from Save the Blowdry.

    This sounds great! I too am of the variety where I only wash my hair 1-2 times a week but my reason is because I have naturally super curly hair and it takes me about 1.5 hours to blow dry and straighten it and I ain’t doing that every couple of days! xx

      It’s just so much hassle isn’t it, no idea how some people wash their hair every day! At least with this you can guarantee your curls will stay perfect 🙂 xx
