We all want to maintain healthy hair. However, not all of us can afford treatments and/or spend hours at the hairdresser's. Say hello to Hot Head Deep Conditioning Thermal Heat Cap for a salon-quality treatment in the comfort of your home. 


Reversible and cordless by design, you can move about freely and get on with other things while deep conditioning your hair.  You can also use this cap when your colouring hair to allow the dye to penetrate the cuticles and get the best colour results. 


How does it work?

Hair cuticle is typically closed and laying flat like fish scales. Hot Head Cap, which is thermal and made from Terrycloth, is filled with renewable flaxseeds that generates heat when warmed up in the microwave. The gently heat produced from the Cap will lift your hair cuticles, allowing the treatment to penetrate deep down, leaving your hair well-conditioned and nourished from inside out.



Starting circumference is around 21 inches. Max circumference when fully stretched is 34 inches. If you would like Hot Head in XL or any other print we do not stock, you can email us and place a custom order.


For head size 22 inches and beyond, very thick hair and/or dreadlocks, we recommend Pydana Deep Conditioning Thermal Heat Caps to avoid stretching the elastic by using a cap too small for your head/hair. 


Weight: 575g


£29.99 GBP

Heat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds on each side, depending on microwave wattage. Do not exceed a combined total of 3 minutes heating time from start to finish of conditioning your hair. The cap will produce 20-30 minutes of gentle moist heat to deep condition your hair. For longevity of your cap, please also follow very important instructions that comes with it.

To avoid ruining your cap, always use a plastic cap on top of your hair before putting on Hot Head.

Tip: Many users have noted the print side of the cap is the warmest. Watch this video by YouTube vlogger, Bianca Renee, where she demonstrates the best way to heat  and use the cap. 


Cleaning and maintenance

Use warm water and a mild detergent to wipe clean. Any unsightly fluff or lint on the Cap can be removed using a lint roller.

The instruction that comes with the cap is for 1000 watts microwave, but mine is below this watts. How many minutes should I use to heat the cap?

For microwaves below 850 watts, heat each side for 1 minute and ensure the total combined heating of both sides doesn't exceed 3 minutes. For example, heat the print side for 1 minute, turn the cap inside out and heat the plain colour side for 1 minute and then turn the cap inside out again and heat the print side for another 1 minute. Put on the cap with print side resting on your head. This side, according to many, provides the warmest heat. Please make sure a clingfilm or a disposable shower cap is already on your head prior to heating the cap. 


What would happen if I heat the cap longer than recommended time?

The flaxseeds would become overheated and toasted, thus sparking up and setting the cap on fire. This happened to our Co-Founder when she was testing the cap for performance prior to stocking it. Please do not overheat at any given session. The elastic would also lose it firmness, causing your cap to become saggy. Overheating the cap can also result in burnt holes. As a rule of thumb, the higher the microwave watt (850 watts and above), the less heat up time is required.

Love this hair cap

I bought this as a gift for Christmas so it hasn't been used yet. However I have my own heat cap and it is great for deep conditioning. I have low porosity hair so this helps open up my cuticles to let the hair products in better. Its worth investing in

Fab product - does it’s job & is comfortable.

Great! Great product & packaging /instructions. I brought a cheaper version of this last year on Amazon & it was very stiff & much too tight because of the super tight & thick elastic band & gave me a headache everyone. This heat cap is super comfortable & looks great quality. I’m growing Locs though so the only issue is I’m not sure if it will still fit in a couple years when they grow- but for now, great. Actually, 1 other thing is though i heat it to the max, it doesn’t stay hot as long as I’d imagined it would.. it’s warm after 5 mins - though stays warm (not hot), so it still working. Would be good if it allowed heating up for longer initially. Cheers! :)

Fast and Easy

This cap stays hot. The seeds allow it to stay moulded to your head, allowing the heat to ********* better than other gel based caps I've used in the past. If you have long thick hair, I would purchase the larger style as this model (black graffiti) barely holds my shoulder length locs.
