DIY Washable Deep Conditioning Cap with Removable Pouches

11.05.2017

Hello Hair Friends, 

I have wanted to share this post with you for a very long time. At first, the post was only in my head and I had no idea when I was going to actually start to pursue making this project a reality. Well, I have finally, finally, gotten around to how I create my very own deep conditioning cap. 

I love to deep condition but it can be quite hard to deep condition in one spot. What I mean by that is actually sitting under a hooded dryer or even under my lovely Gold N' Hot deep conditioning cap. Sometimes, I just want to walk around the house, clean up if I want, talk/text, or run an errand if I so choose. So I thought to myself, why not just purchase a microwavable conditioning cap from online? Well I am a little frugal minded and I always find a way to buy/create for a cheaper price.

So, I decided to create my very own microwavable deep conditioning cap. However, I wanted mine to be machine washable with interchangeable pouches that I could make myself and fill with whatever I wanted (rice, flaxseeds, herbs, etc.).

This deep conditioning cap is exactly what I wanted and provides the deep conditioning I needed. It is stylish because I picked out the fabric that I wanted. It stays warm due to the fleece interfacing and rice pouches. It fits my head perfectly (20" in diameter) but you can make it larger to accommodate your head/hair needs. Not to mention, the PRICE WAS RIGHT!

Prices:
1 yard of fabric (Hobby Lobby $4.89)
1/2 yard of fabric (Hobby Lobby $2.45) 
*Additional 20% off my total with Hobby Lobby coupon which they always have*



1/2 yard of fleece (Walmart Fabric Clearance $1.29)
1/4 Elastic (Walmart $1.97)
14" Zippers (sewtrue.com $0.63 each)

This tutorial is easy but may require practice if you are new to using a sewing machine. The total price for this project was approximately $12.50 but I had a lot of the other materials on hand which made the project cheaper. Not to mention, I had the two fabrics from Hobby Lobby in my fabric stash, which made this project only $5.15!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't have purchased this anywhere for that price and I can wash, dry, reuse, refill, and remake this cap again and again. Enjoy the video below!

PLEASE TRY THIS PROJECT AND LET ME KNOW HOW IT TURNS OUT!!!!! SEND ME PICS VIA SOCIAL MEDIA, TAG ME, AND I WILL SHARE THEM ALLLLLLL!

  3. Hi, do you warm up the cap with the pouches already in the cap or do you warm up just the pouches and put that into the cap afterwards?

    1. No I warm the pouches separately because the cap has metal zippers on it that could cause a fire if microwaved. Thanks for commenting!

  7. Hello, this is an awesome tutorial! I, however, suck at sewing and am afraid to botbotch the materials. I'm thinking about trying to hand sew it instead but thought I'd give it a shot to see if I could win one before I tackled it. Thanks for doing this for us! Blessings!
