Hello friends. It’s hard to keep good things to myself when it comes to making my hair routine easier. So I’m excited to share that I’ve found the long lost love that I never knew I had – The Virtuosa Shower Cap, made just for big hair!

On days that I don’t wash my hair, I’ve traditionally had two methods of keeping it dry:

  1. The pineapple. When my hair is very long, I pineapple it when taking a shower. The only problem is that my pineapple is so tall it never quite fits under a regular shower cap. Hair gets wet; frizz creeps in.
  2. The clip/elastic/headband method. I use this when my hair is shorter. Clip for the front layers, elastic for the length of hair, and headband to keep it all together under the shower cap. Needless to say, that’s a lot of stretching and flattening of curls.

The Virtuosa Shower Cap has a nifty design that allows hair to fall naturally while being well-contained and completely dry. This video explains it better than I can:

It was just as easy to use as the video demonstrates. Plus, it’s made from a quality fabric that’s both attractive on the head (as much as a shower cap can be) and dries quickly.

If that weren’t enough, the story of the ladies who created the Virtuosa Cap is pretty inspiring, too. They are three MBAs from Harvard Business School who saw a need and, through dedicated research and product testing, created a product to fill it. You can read their story here.

The shower cap retails for $34 at VirtuosaBeauty.com. That’s a little pricey if you’re used to paying $2.99 for a 2-pack of plastic caps (like I am), but it’s an investment that will save you time and frustration, and preserve your curl pattern for days. Plus, this cap will definitely outlast the drug store 2-pack. I recommend it!
