To keep a blowout or new hairstyle its freshest, or avoid getting your hair wet mid-shower outside of wash day, wearing a well-fitting shower cap can be a saving grace. And while those flimsy see-through caps can come in handy while traveling (or to help activate a deep conditioner), they’re usually too fragile to withstand more than a handful of wears without tearing—which is why investing in a durable and reusable shower cap is key.
There are a number of vintage-inspired options available on the market, but these definitely aren’t your mother’s caps. In addition to being water resistant and featuring fun patterns or pops of color, many of the best shower caps from brands like Glow by Daye and T3 include satin or microfiber linings to keep your hair doubly protected, and are roomy enough to accommodate braids, locs, and robust curls. For our short list of hair-protecting essentials to add to your bathing routine, read on for 15 of the best shower caps to keep your do intact.
