Over the years, I've spent hundreds of dollars on products claiming that they could humidity-proof my hair — only to be disappointed with the results. I'd empty a whole bottle in one use and, within 30 minutes of stepping outside, I'd look like a Chia Pet.
Just when I thought I reached my wit's end, I found The Slap Cap ($19.99+ on Amazon) by Grace Eleyae — a Black woman-owned brand that makes bedding, hair care accessories, and skincare products.
This satin-lined cap actually smooths my hair and shields me from my kryptonite (💦) — basically, it delivers on all its promises and also picks up my flat iron's slack. The two I own both have adjustable strings on the back so I can tighten it when I'm using it for bed or loosen it when I'm wearing it outside.
After having this cap for two years, I've noticed so many other benefits: my hair is shinier, longer, feels healthier, and has less breakage. Even on days where the humidity is higher than the temperature, my hair stays perfectly coiffed 💅🏾.
Other reviews are just as impressed with the many ways you can use this cap — specifically, to make protective styles last longer and keep hair from drying out while traveling.
Others love that the stylish hat can keep you warm while it works its magic.
And others love that you can wear the cap overnight to completely eradicate bed head.
