A few weeks ago Gail McJorrow, the creator of Wondercap, offered to send me the Wondercap Pamper Pack to try out. Having really curly, frizz filled hair I jumped at the chance! Wondercap is like a shower cap which you heat up in the microwave and then wrap your hair in after applying a conditioning treatment. I think this is a fantastic idea as I usually leave deep conditioning masks on for over an hour to make sure they work properly. Using the Wondercap for a few minutes has the same effect.
The Pamper Pack includes lots of bits and bobs: a wide toothed comb for combing conditioner through your hair, a microfiber towel, a conditioning treatment and of course the Wondercap itself with some disposable shower caps which you wear underneath. I didn’t think the conditioner from the pack was really that good in itself but the great thing about the Wondercap is that you can use it with whichever conditioner works for you. The cap isn’t so hot that it hurts your head and it stays warm for a long time – ages after I’d taken it off! The first time I used the Wondercap I ran downstairs in a towel in the middle of my bath to microwave it but you don’t actually need to do that as it stays warm long enough for you to heat it up first!
Wondercap is originally from New Zealand but there are a couple of places in the UK which stock it; Michaeljohn and Victoria Health. This is a brilliant product, especially for anyone whose hair need that extra bit of conditioning!
