Best for thick hair (Runner-up)
Waterproof reusable women’s shower cap
Don’t be fooled by this cap’s seemingly small appearance. Its tightening straps allow it to expand to accommodate the thickest of fabrics.
Luxury shower cap for women
The shower cap makes you feel like you’re in a five-star hotel. Adjust the bow for a tighter fit.
The best style
Premium shower cap
Fashion and function are easily combined with this bonnet-like shower cap. You can choose from a number of intricate prints, from chic stripes to cool-toned florals. While the front is decorated with a flowing bow, the back has an elastic band so you can comfortably pull all your hair.
Overall the best
Fashionista Collection Shower cap with anti-mildew lining
Over 5,000 Amazon reviewers have named it the number one shower cap on the site. It features a mildew-resistant PEVA lining (a safer alternative to carcinogenic PVC), sturdy elastic bands, and a roomy interior. It is also very easy to clean as it is machine washable.
Adjustable shower bonnet, green
If a weak elastic is your pet’s leash, you’ll love this waterproof bonnet’s adjustable straps. Tighten the knot while you’re in the steam bath, and then loosen it up as you go through your skincare routine. We like that it doesn’t leave an annoying dent.
The best kind
If you don’t like sharing, buy this shower cap quad so everyone in your home can have their own. We love that the eco-friendly material has a luxurious, satin-like finish.
Best for thick hair
Super Jumbo Shower Cap Premium Collection
How big is this shower cap? Probably big enough to hold Rihanna’s lush dummies in Ocean’s 8, Ariana Grande’s signature voluminous ponytail, the late Amy Winehouse’s trademark honeycomb and Diana Ross’ famous afro. Check out the review pictures if you don’t believe us.
Adjustable satin shower cap
Not only does this hat keep water from reaching your hair, but it also has a soft satin lining that prevents any pulling or stress helping to keep any style in place while you comb it.
AfroShower Large Royal Blue
Swimma makes helmets for swimmers with natural hair styles — curls, twists, natural hair, etc. — so who better to trust when trying to protect your hair in the shower?
The best eco-friendly
Terrycloth-Lined Shower Cover
If you want to make an eco-friendly purchase, this BPA and PVC free shower cap should be your first choice. Scientists believe that BPA, a chemical used to make plastic, can act as a hormone disruptor. When it seeps into water sources, it can negatively affect aquatic life.
Best for braids
Braided shower cap
Boxy braids at the waist or fascia twists can comfortably match this sack shower accessory. It has a velcro button that allows you to easily pull protected tops off your shoulders like a traditional cap.
Best for thin hair
SHHHOWERCAP is one of the best hair accessories to consider. It’s made of a non-plastic nanotech fabric that’s easily waterproof and has an anti-microbial coating to prevent mildew. Furthermore, the distinct turban shape and eccentric prints make it possible to wear outside the bathroom (say, a swimming pool). While reviewers rave about its fun and functional design, it’s important to note that people with thicker skin find it difficult to keep all their hair in place.
The best anti-frizz
Large shower cap with satin lining
Satin is one of the best materials for your hair because it helps retain moisture and reduces friction (prevents frizz). We love that this hat helps preserve your style in the shower, but can also be used to protect your hair at night.
Printed palm leaves Reusable shower cap
Bring a tropical vibe straight to your bathroom with an adjustable shower cap dipped in verdant palm trees.
Best for extra moisture
Shower cap to increase humidity
Working smarter isn’t harder with this moisture-boosting shower cap from Coco and Eve. Use this cap when applying a mask to lock in moisture and get overnight results in just five minutes. Or use it to protect your outlet when you shower between washes!
The best vintage style
Cherry Print shower cap
For anyone obsessed with a 1950s Doris Day-inspired aesthetic, this is the shower cap for you. The elastic feature keeps the lid from slipping off, allowing you to shower with peace of mind. No wet yarn here!
Goody Large Bonnet Shower Cap (Pack of 6)
Reusable shower cap
This eco-friendly option is made with sustainable and recycled materials and comes with a carrying case for easy on-the-go use. The soft organic cotton lining will prevent frizz and keep your hair fresh.
