Awesome product with beautiful, lustrous results!!! I have been using this product for a while now and it's my go-to hair product whenever I want extra volume, curls, and body. It takes me literally 5 minutes from start to finish to get a whole head of hair curled. I'd say I spend about 2 minutes rolling my hair, 2 minutes steaming it in the cap, and about a minute unrolling it and spraying some hairspray (love L'Oréal Elnett).

It has been my savior when I am frantically trying to get ready for work or a date and have 10 minutes to do my makeup, hair, and choose an outfit (we all know hair style can really make an outfit look a million times better -- it really needs to be worked into the equation even if there seems to be no time!). I always have time to do my hair now. Sometimes I leave it on while I'm doing the dishes or the laundry. A few times I've even hopped in the car with it on to save more time going somewhere (this means I only spend time inside rolling it). Curling hair has never been easier for me.

I have very long blonde hair and this still curls my hair from root to tip. I've had trouble in the past trying to get curls to stay throughout the night with curling irons -- it can be hard to get the heat from a curling iron to touch every part of such a long strand of hair. I've never been able to get the volume at the roots with a curling iron like I can with this product.

Wearing the cap itself feels amazing (seriously, you won't want to take it off). It's like a portable little steam room for your hair. Curling irons used to make my hair noticeably dryer, with more split-ends. Since I've been using this, my hair has been restored to it's healthier, more natural state. To boot, the steam coming from the cap seems to be putting more moisture into my hair, which helps create a nice luster over time.

A little tip - I noticed it works best on clean hair. Don't load up on the conditioner or serums (try adding a bit of gel though when hair is damp to hold the curls) before using. You can use any type of curlers with the cap -- I have and they all work well.

Overall, just beautiful curls AND volume in no time! Can't believe I was using curling irons before. You'll be really happy you have more time in your routine to do other things while still getting a great hairstyle!

I have been looking for a quick and easy way to curl my hair for a very very VERY long time. I'm 30, have long thin, fine hair. I'm really bad when it comes to styling my own hair and never seem to get it right on my own. Everything either takes too long or is way too complicated. I've tried everything from hot rollers to curling wands to curlformers to a perm to scrunching products... and NOTHING works as well as this.

In order to write a good review, I wanted to try this cap with a good amount of different curlers. So far I've tried this with foam rollers, flexi rods, curlformers, magnetic rollers, and perming rods. So far I get the best results with the perming rods... which you can get a ton of for a couple of bucks at Sally's and in whatever size you please.

I am so happy with how fast this works and how easy it is. Although it works well with any roller, my favorites are the perm rods as I said before and curlformers, yes curlformers. Normally in order for curlformers to work you either have to sit under a hair drying cap for an hour or so or sleep on them... which is very painful and uncomfortable. I never thought I would find a fast and comfy way to use my curlformers and now I have. I can have them put in and let this heat cap do its magic and take them out, all within 25 minutes. It's incredible. And I am left with soft, wonderful curls that last. I didn't even get this to use with the curlformers so I was surprised when I was experimenting and it worked so well.

It may seem expensive but I think it's cheaper than any good curling wand and you can use it with SO MANY different things. It's so fun to try all this stuff out and see what works for you. Honestly the only problems I've had have been user error... me being clumsy and not putting in rollers very well. I could not recommend this product more.

Have had this heat cap for years. It works as advertized, the curls are much better than anything I've tried. Like the other reviewer, I hate the velcro part. A drawstring would be much, much better!

I haven't used it a lot,mainly because I can't get the hang of rolling my very fine straight hair in quick fashion. But I'm working on it. The cap feels really nice on a cold morning too!

I got the steam cap during the week; been sick so I have LOTS of time to play around with my hair. It's shoulder length in the back, below chin length on sides; short-ish on top.

IMO the top and sides curl quite well. The back....not so much...I get curves rather than curls. I'm thinking of purchasing smaller rollers for the back and see if roller size isn't the problem.

I definitely recommend this product; my hair was in good condition BEFORE I purchased it....now, it's in GREAT condition!

HOWEVER...what's the purpose of the velcro? It's not like when it's open the cap's any larger....I don't bother with it....otherwise I tangles in the hair. KEEP THE VELCRO CLOSED, LADIES! (or gentlemen)

This heat cap actually saves my wife 1/2 hour getting ready for work. Not only that, it's better for her hair . The first day she used it she received many compliments on her hair. Now I'm her hero for ordering the Heat Cap. I actually called the company and spoke to the lady who invented it. It's a family owned business started from home. These are real American people with a real American idea making it work. She was actually home baby sitting her grand daughter that day. We talked about 45 minutes about the cap, politic family and religion. Now I advertise tis cap to all who will listen. The wife is happy that makes me happy and I hope the folks at The Original Microwave Heat Cap co. are happy too.

It isn't large enough to fit over even medium sized rollers. If you only put 5 or 6 rollers on your head it might work fine

too small to go over hair rollers.
heat can only reach the top and middle of head not sides and back.

This heat-curling cap works. I have very straight, very fine hair. I followed the instructions including setting my clean, dry hair on very small rollers ("Velcro" covered is essential for my fine, flighty hair). I heated the cap and immediately put it on my head over the curlers and set the timer for 5 minutes after which I removed the cap and let my head cool completely before taking the rollers out. My hair curls.... It works exactly as advertised. It would not work well for someone who used large rollers because the cap is just not that large... but it works perfectly for me. My hair does not do well with perms; so this is the best way to get curls is a very short period of time without sitting under a hair dryer. I am very pleased with this purchase.

My hair is thick and fine. It will not hold a curl for any length of time -- curl just falls out. Also, my bangs were stringy and just layed there. I ordered the "heat cap" in desperation more than anything else. Well, I used it and my hair stayed in curls until shampooing. I am really sold on the heat cap - it is great!!!

This product did not give me the curls I wanted. It was hard to get over brush rollers. If you used another type of roller it might work better. I was hoping that this would replace the use of a curling iron. My hair is fine and medium length. If you are willing to work with more than I did it is worth buying.
