The Envy & The Vibe

The Envy & The Vibe

If you're like me and try to wash your hair only once every few days (and owe this accomplishment entirely to the life-giving magic of dry shampoo - my favorite is Amika's), it can be very difficult to keep your hair away from the frizz-inducing mist of the shower. It's too easy to space out and stand directly under the water stream, and then you're forced to take an extra 10-15 minutes in there to wash and condition. There goes your whole evening!

Wearing a shower cap is the obvious solution to this problem, but I've always avoided those things for a variety of reasons: they're flimsy, make a ton of noise when they're hit by the water, and leave a sad indentation on your forehead from the elastic band, among other problems. There's nothing hip or stylish about them, and where can you even buy them? I thought everyone just stole them from hotels.

Former advertising executive Jacquelyn De Jesu had similar feelings about her nightly showers, and felt inspired enough to do something about it. She invented the chic and entirely functional SHHHOWERCAP, a turban made out of a 100% waterproof nanotech material. Jacquelyn De JesuJacquelyn De JesuJacquelyn De JesuJ

We are SHHHOWERCAP. We believe that you should never feel less than 100%. That your beauty products should only help you feel beautiful. And that you should never keep anything around (a boyfriend, best friend, or product) that makes you feel like anything less than your best self. 

There are currently 8 different styles for sale on their site, and at $43 each, it's hard to justify buying one in each color, but I definitely want to! I don't think I've ever tried to accessorize in the shower before, but this is the perfect opportunity to try it, right?
