Adding heat to a deep conditioning treatment opens up the hair shaft, allowing the products to penetrate further into the cuticle. But messing around with hot moist towels is a headache and using a blowdryer over a shower cap can singe the hair if you’re not careful.
Replace those archaic tactics with the Hair Therapy Wrap, a cordless terry turban from Blissworld.com, $24. Here’s how it works: Slip the gel packs into the turban and microwave for about 80 seconds for 30 minutes of deep heat and moisture, hands-free. A great gift idea for all your harried friends.
