Thermal Heat Cap:

Using a thermal cap with your conditioner or oil treatment will optimise your treatment results and give you deeply hydrated, shiny and well-nourished locks.

The strategic implementation of heat is the secret behind many successful in-salon conditioning treatments and you can easily achieve deeply nourished, deeply healthy hair by combining a thermal mask with oil or conditioning treatments at home.

Adding heat by using a thermal cap with your conditioning or colour treatment, ensures that your hair to fully absorb the benefits of the treatment or colour that you apply. The heat will soften and lift the outer cuticle layer of your hair, allowing the treatment to penetrate deep within the hair, for lasting, positive impacts on the health and condition of your hair.

Thermal Heat cap benefits:

Improved Deep Conditioning – Deep conditioning and oil treatments are the best way to nourish and rebuild the structure and condition of damaged hair. However, most products have only a superficial effect on the exterior of the hair and do not penetrate the outer cuticle layer of the hair. Absorption is restricted by the cuticle layers which forms the outermost part of the hair follicle.

Hairdressers understand this and strategically apply heat during in-salon treatments which softens and lifts the hair cuticles. This allows better absorption of the nourishing benefits of oil or conditioner, dramatically improving the result of your treatment and leading to stronger, more resilient hair.

Our Thermal Heat Cap will help you get more out of the treatment you are using and are particularly helpful if you have coloured or dull, dry, damaged, or fragile hair which is prone to split ends and breakage.

Healthier hair is less likely to split or break, allowing it to maintain the length as it grows. Application of gentle heat to the scalp with the thermal cap will also stimulate an increase in blood flow to the scalp, which can support hair growth. The best approach to healthier hair and shiny, nourished locks is to use a thermal cap together with your deep conditioning or oil treatment.

Using Your Thermal Heat Cap for conditioning treatments:

  • Shampoo your hair only and gently towel dry.
  • Apply your treatment conditioner or oil.
  • Place a protective plastic cap on your hair (supplied with the thermal heat cap).
  • Put thermal heat cap into the microwave for 30-45 seconds on each side with the cap’s elastic facing up. Repeat three times, removing the cap to flip it inside out per interval. Do not exceed a combined total of 3 minutes.
  • If additional heat is desired, continue following the above flipping method, until your desired heat level is achieved.
  • Place the heated cap on your head on top of the plastic cap for 30 minutes for an oil or conditioning treatment
  • Remove your thermal cap and give your hair a few minutes to cool before hopping back in the shower to wash out your treatment;
      • Oil treatments: Double-shampoo using your usual amount of shampoo for the first wash, then wash again with half the amount of shampoo. Condition as usual.
      • Rinse conditioning treatments thoroughly.
  • Rinse your plastic shower cap in the shower and keep it to reuse
  • Use weekly or fortnightly for best results.

Your Thermal Heat Cap

Your Thermal Heat cap is reusable and made from a cotton microfibre which you can spot clean with warm water and soap if needed. The heating element is flaxseed (linseed) which are sewn into the cap and once heated, retain the heat for up to 45 minutes.

Thermal Heat caps ship with one reusable plastic liner cap, which you put on first to retain moisture and protect your thermal cap.

    The Shade Colour system is easy to use, gives a natural look & leaves hair silky soft with subtle hi-lights. Having a subscription & hair colour that arrives on your doorstep when you need it is a plus.

  • Nina H

    Amazing company, when I had a glitch and accidentally ordered the tsubaki oil the support team refunded me straight away. After the company accidentally sent it to me I offered to send it back but they told me to keep it because it was there mistake. Such rare fantastic customer service! Shout out to the amazing Maria and Craig! I also loved the products super easy to use and I love the effect on my hair, it’s not drying at all!

  • Maxine C

    I'm happy I decided to buy my colour through Shade because the result was perfect. The condition of my hair has improved because there no harmful chemicals in the product. Thank you Shade

  • Sara L

    Omg!! I absolutely love how this has turned out and am very impressed. The coverage is great. There was plenty of dye left over and my hair was left soft silky and the shine was amazing.

  • Louise K

    Great hair dye - love the convenience of a quality do at home product

  • Rebecca V

    I have been using THE SHADE for about 2 years now and I LOVE it. Occasionally if I am travelling and I have forgotten my little square box, I will buy a kit from the chemist... and I always regret it. Even the other Italian "organic" brand makes my scalp HURT. THE SHADE NEVER hurts and the colours are lovely. I do change it up now and again and the colourist checklist and support are always great. I love how simple and effective the subscription is, just set and forget... it arrives and I dye my hair again. Before THE SHADE I was going *weeks* between dyes because I would not get to the shop or forget until late that night... now I can always have nice hair colour... and if I need more, I just order another one in between my regular delivery. If you are thinking about it, just give it a go... you won't regret it. BY FAR the best at-home hair dye I have ever used. It is also better for my scalp than the in salon ones.

  • Leonie C

    I love love love The Shade, I love that it's so conveniently delivered to my door and I love how good my hair feels after use. Highly recommend The Shade to anyone considering trying, just do it you won't be disappointed

  • Joy A

    The Shade has been a God send. It covers greys, it's easy to use and my hair is so healthy. Even my hairdresser wanted to know what brand of colouring I use. I receive so many comments on how shiny my hair is since using this product. Well Done The Shade, a very happy customer

  • Anna F

    After years of using awful packet hair color and my hair feeling like straw for days after The Shade is honestly a God send! Not only convenient that it ships on a regular basis to my door, the smell doesn't give you a headache and hardly stains the hairline. Having black hair I can say goodbye to wearing headbands and hats a week after dying my hair till the stain wears off! Thank you for this product it truly is amazing!

  • Eileen C

    Excellent colour. Lasts well. Easy to apply. Recommended!

  • Christine S

    I use to use another product for 25 yrs but I changed over about a year ago and love the product Thank you

  • Lee D

    I love the way that my hair feels after using my colour from The Shade. Very happy that I don't have to worry about remembering that it's time to colour my hair. It just turns up in the mail ready to go at the right time!

  • Nikki H

    Easy to use. Good quality product.

  • Sandra F

    This is the first time I’ve used a home colouring kit. I am tired of spending a fortune on salon charges. I am so pleased with the results, I felt like I’d just stepped out of the salon I will be using this in the future. My hair is a lovely natural colour and has been left so soft and shiny, I can’t recommend enough

  • Lisa J

    Loving the colour , the smell and how good my hair feels . My friends have commented on the colour and say it looks much better than what I was using before which was a supermarket brand. It was lovely to be able to get advice on what colour duo to use from a consultant before purchasing.

  • Michelle C

    Very impressed with the product quality, supply timeliness and ease of purchase. The colour I picked did produce a bit of a darker shade than expected, however the outcome was still lovely.

  • Dianna A

    Great product! It's a bit daunting buying hair colour on the internet for obvious reasons but I don't have time (or honestly the patience) to sit in a chair. My last hair (foils) took 4 hrs. I opted for Chocolate Blonde which in my hair came out as a dark red which is a fun colour. I loved the dramatic change. I've included photos these were taken under the heat lamp so show the end result as closer to how it looked in real life. The last photo was in average bathroom lighting. It covered my greys and is lasting really well considering I wash my hair everyday. The colour has faded into more of a soft brown which is nice. Definitely will buy again - to have new hair at home in 35 minutes is fantastic. The packaging and product is great and the conditioner that came with it is amazing so will have to buy that too!
