Electrical (ones you plug into a power source) Deep Conditioning Caps are not that popular in SA as yet and knowing how effective heat can be when using deep conditioners/masques/treatments finding an easy one to use such as the Bounce Essential one is indeed a blessing. You don't have to heat things up separately or take more time heating something first before you can use it - you just plug it in and you are good to go.
What is it - its an electrical wired cap that you can plug into a power socket (using a two pin adapter) and place it on your plastic covered hair and pick a setting on the cap and it starts heating up. You can keep it on for 10-20 minutes (lol Caroline I hope the ones on sale come with some guidelines as I took some time trying to remember our full discussion) and once you are done, you can switch it off, remove it from your head and let your treatment continue to work as the heat is still trapped in the plastic on your head.
Precaution - do not have it sitting directly on your scalp or against your scalp - its big enough to sit like a bonnet over your hair and you use the drawstring to adjust it or tie it more firmly when you have positioned it nicely over your hair. If you do pull it against your scalp - you will not burn or harm yourself - you just will feel the heat more and if left for too long your scalp will feel slightly sore afterwards. <shades eyes> okay okay yes I let it sit right on my scalp the first time I used it and left it too long as I got engrossed in my work and I could feel like it didn't feel right but I just left it there, lesson learnt. Basically - it is big enough and is meant to sit like a bonnet around your head not like a hat firmly/tightly against your head.
