Thermal Heat Cap

(9 customer reviews)


The most eco-friendly, easy and effective way to deep condition your hair with heat for professional salon quality results, at home. Suitable for all hair types to dramatically improve the health and condition of your hair. Helping to reduce breakage, frizz and dryness and promote hydration, shine and moisture. By using a gentle, moist heat to open up the cuticles of the hair shaft, allowing your conditioner, treatment or hair mask to penetrate the hair, nourishing and conditioning your hair from the inside out.


Wash hair as normal, squeeze out excess water and apply your favourite conditioner, treatment or hair mask. Completely cover your hair and hair line with a plastic shower cap. Place your Curl Maven Thermal Heat Cap in the microwave, elastic side up, and heat for 1 minute. Heating times are approximate as microwave watts vary, so make sure you set it to 800 watt power. Turn inside out, and place back in the microwave, elastic side up, and heat again for 1 minute. Repeat once more if necessary, but do not heat longer than a total of 3 minutes, and no longer than 1 minute at a time. Place your Thermal Heat Cap over your plastic cap. For best results leave on for 30-45 minutes, but no longer than an hour. Remove the Thermal Heat Cap for the last 5 minutes of the treatment to allow the hair to cool down. For best results, use luke-warm water to rinse your conditioner, treatment or hair mask out. If your hair is dry or brittle, don’t rinse out fully.

Cleaning + Care Instructions

    I cannot say enough nice things about Gabriella and her Curl Maven ways! This heat cap, however, is exceptional. It is very well made, stretchy but snug, retains the heat without burning, and is super easy to use. Getting it on and off was a breeze, with a plastic shower cap underneath, and wasn’t too heavy or lopsided as some other brands have been. And the patterns are *squeals* ADORABLE! Do be mindful of the wattage on your microwave – she recommends an 800 watt, 1 minute per side, three times – I have a 900 watt, and did it for 45 seconds, three times, worked perfectly! (Any longer, and it would have begun to sweat, which is not good for those flaxseeds). Give yourself the gift of heat; your tresses deserve it ❤️

    I love this heat cap! I have lots of thick hair and had been doing the same thing with it for years. The heat cap has helped me to deep condition it properly and I’ve also used it alongside Gabriella’s modified rice water treatment. It’s well worth getting

    This is great! I find that without heat, deep conditioning doesn’t do much for my hair. But now I have this awesome heat cap, it really makes a difference. The cap is well made, easy to heat, and durable. Much better quality than any other one I’ve had. Comes with a handy instruction card I suggest you store with it, for the times you haven’t conditioned for a while and you’ve forgotten how long to heat it for

    Love this heat cap. It is great quality and it fits perfectly. So you can put on the heat cap and do other things and not worry about it falling off. I have used it 2 times so far for deep conditioning and my hair is feeling better already. Just buy it. You won’t be sorry. Thanks!

    Received my heat cap a few weeks ago. The quality is amazing and the fabric is really pretty. My hair was in fab condition after using it. I had been debating whether to buy one for ages but I’m delighted I invested and supported an small Irish business.

    I’ve been using this heat cap for the past year and a half (purchased in April 2020) and it helps immensely with deep conditioning treatments. I notice a significant difference between using this thermal cap when deep conditioning versus deep conditioning without. It truly helps my hair absorb and benefit from the conditioning treatment and bring moisture back into my curls. The quality of the cap is excellent and it has held up well over time. It is also adorable and reversible! I highly recommend!

    This thermal heat cap is divine! The quality top notch! Worth every penny as you will use it all the time. I’ve had mine for a year and it still looks brand new. Arrives quickly and I ordered mine in the middle of the pandemic where nothing was arriving quickly anywhere especially to Chile and it arrived one and quicker than anything else I ordered. The styles are beautiful and you’ll definitely be tempted to order more than one. So do yourself a favor, treat your self to a spa experience and click the buy button

    Excellent heat cap. I had been looking for a cap that would stay on my head and give my hair equal heat treatment on every part of my head. I didn’t think it could stay warm for as long as 20 to 30 minutes but having used it 3 or 4 times, I can say that my head feels warm after 30 minutes and I really notice a difference when I take the cap off. Would recommend as an excellent resource for anyone wanting to do intensive conditioning/treatment using heat. Excellent product. Thank you ❤
