Thermal Heat Cap:

If your hair is feeling dry and prone to breakage, or you simply want to boost the hydration and condition of your hair, using a thermal cap with your conditioner or oil treatment will maximise 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.

Using heat during your conditioning or colour treatment softens and lifts the hair cuticles, allowing the hair to fully absorb the benefits of the treatment or colour that you apply.

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.

    Fantastic hair dye. It lasts for ages, without fading like previous hair colours I've purchased from the shops or the hairdresser's I love that The Shades hair dye uses natural ingredients so it doesn't damage my hair. I would never go back to any other dye.

  • Irene L

    All going well. No problems. I need to have it posted every 4 weeks if possible please.

  • Pamela P

    Consultants extremely helpful, I will always buy my hair colour from shade now, just perfect in every way, thankyou so much 🙂

    I couldn't have asked for better service all around from The Shade. Everything was so easy from making my order to receiving it in the post. I now finally have full coverage of all of my stubborn Gray roots. I am now a very happy Subscriber. 😊

  • Robyn R

    Love their products, their customer service i could easily put on hold for a bit or change my colour selection, totally recommended.

  • Debbie B

    I started using the Shade during a serious illness that affected my hair. I wanted a gentle non chemical colouring system. I found it in the Shade.

  • Meike M

    I love The Shade; it's easy to use and my hair looks and feels great! I only wish I could bulk buy, which would reduce the environmental footprint by having less single-use packaging and less shipping.

    Love the colour, was exactly what I was hoping to achieve, have had a lot of compliments about it 😊

  • Christine A

    I love love love this system and the product is awesome. I specifically was after a hair colour that was cruelty free and looked great; The Shade nailed it! The regular order system sealed the deal for me, no longer do I have to try to remember in advance of looking in the mirror and thinking I need to get my hair done - this is delivered to me on time, every time!

  • Margaret T

    My home colour experience has been great! It is no trouble for me to do it myself and the colour turns out just how I would like it to be - Sienna Brown. I have used "The Shade" now for about 6 years and am thrilled with the results. My (49) daughter also uses the same colour and finds it easy to use. My photo is not my best as I was looking at a Birthday card I was given. I am (74) with wrinkles but my head of hair shows up well. Margaret

  • Laura B

    Perfect colour and application tools! Love it! My husband applied it and even though we made a mess, it was an easy process and the colour came off my skin with the barrier oil easily!

  • TyAnn S
