The Benefits of using a Heat Cap on our HAIR..

Posted on Posted in HOMEMADE REMEDIES

I used to always love steaming my hair after oiling it or applying a mask. Then it started with dipping a towel in hot or warm water and then applying it on my head.. Both the process definitely had good results but wasn’t hassle free. It did take time and was messy too.. I definitely needed an alternative because of the amazing results  heat has on the hair. 

 

WHAT IS A HEAT CAP ?

It is a deep moisturising and conditioning cap which induces heat  for special care of the hair. 

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING A HEAT CAP ON THE HAIR ?  

It a Special Care & Treatment for your hair. After applying a hair mask or oil on your scalp and hair , the heat cap does wonders. When heat is applied during the treatment , it opens the cuticles so the products penetrate deeper into the hair shaft, strands and seals them very well. It moistens it tremendously. It even nourishes and strengthens the scalp and the hair, boosting blood circulation on the scalp thus helping in  faster hair growth. So after this special treatment expect healthier hair.

 

WHAT HEAT CAP AM I USING ? 

I recently came across an Indian Brand from Mumbai on Instagram called @manetain_india who makes Heat caps in beautiful colours. It’s India’s first FLAXSEED HEAT CAP. It’s 100 % Handmade and Organic. I ordered it immediately when it was on sale for 2000 otherwise 2250 on their Instagram page. It’s owned by two beautiful young ladies named Yuba and Hinshara. I was in touch with Yuba who is a dentist too for my heat cap and hair buff. She is such a sweetheart who even gave me tips when asked regarding my curly hair. She did help me a lot with great suggestions too with regards to the products for my hair. Mantetain has many more products for the hair. Please look into their Instagram page for all more details.

  • Take a shallow pan and fill it with water.
  • Take another deep pan and place it on top of the shallow pan.
  • Make sure the deep pan is still wet on the inside surface.
  • Rinse the pan with water and don’t wipe it.
  • This is to ensure that the cap doesn’t get overheated or the flaxseeds inside the cap doesn’t get roasted.

HOW TO CLEAN IT ?

WHAT HAS MANETAIN HEAT CAP DONE FOR ME ?

 

As I have damaged my hair a lot in the past by colouring and straightening it. I had to always end up chopping my hair. Recently , like past a month,  I have started with keeping my natural curly hair without straightening it. My hair is on a detox now and I am nourishing my hair tremendously with a lots of goodness and in the process Manetain Heat Cap has helped me a lot with deep penetration of the products into my scalp and hair. This really helps in keeping my hair soft , shiny,  frizz free for quite sometime. It even helps in boosting faster hair growth. It is actually repairing my damaged hair, lessened my headaches due to sinus and I would say it’s excellent for headaches and body pain. The Hot Fermentation on the head and body gives a lot of relief  from pain. So in short it’s a multi purpose product with a lot of benefits. I can even do my chores while the cap is on my head unlike it was when I used to steam or apply a hot towel on my head.

 

HOW DO I USE THE HEAT CAP ?

I place it on a microwave safe plate and microwave it for 1 minute, then reverse it and microwave it for another minute. At times I microwave it non stop for 2 minutes and 30 seconds without reversing. Then I touch the cap to check whether I can take the heat on my skin, then I put the shower cap on my head and then on top of it I place the Heat Cap. It remains really hot for 15 mins and then remains warm for another 10-15 mins with the fan switched off. If I keep it on it remains altogether hot and warm for 15-20 mins. So I prefer switching off the fan. I at times reheat it and do it again for another 15 mins. I don’t exceed 45 mins altogether.  

 

HOW DO I CLEAN IT ?

As the shower cap is there , the heat cap is protected but at times when I do heavy oiling , it does come on the heat cap and I wipe it off with warm water that day itself. If a fruit or vegetable pack is on my head , a little might come on the heat cap, so  then I wait for it to dry and then I dust off the dry remains. Later when very dirty, I will be cleaning it as per as the instructions mentioned. 

 

HOW DOES IT FEEL ? 

It feels very soft but it’s little heavy say about a kg or so. It’s 100 % Cotton on one side and Terry cloth on the other side. The Terry cloth and the Flaxseeds prolongs the heat for longer period of time. It’s even reversible with bright beautiful colours. They have more variants in the colors.   

HOW LONG IS THE SHELF LIFE ? 

It actually depends on how we take care of it but it should stay good for about 1 and half years to 2 years. Basically it’s good as long as it induces good heat.

 

WHO CAN USE IT ?

Actually anyone can but I am not sure about the side effects. So as a DISCLAIMER , I ain’t responsible if it doesn’t suit you.

 

ANY DISADVANTAGES ?

Not yet but then I know if I exceed 45 mins in one go on the same day , my hair can get dry and frizzy.
