If a weak elastic band is your pet peeve, you’ll love the adjustable straps of this waterproof bonnet. Make a tight knot when you’re taking a steamy shower, and then loosen it up when you’re doing your skincare routine. We love that it doesn’t leave behind an annoying indent.

4 Best Eco-Friendly Shower Cap Terrycloth-Lined Klorane $15.00 SHOP NOW

If you want to make an environmentally friendly purchase, this BPA- and PVC-free shower cap should be your top choice. Scientists believe that BPA, a chemical used to make plastic, may act as a hormone disruptor. When absorbed into the water supply, it can negatively effect aquatic life.

8 Best for Thin Hair The Stir SHHHOWERCAP $43.00 SHOP NOW

SHHHOWERCAP is hands down one of the most well-thought-out hair accessories. It’s made with a non-plastic, nano tech fabric that effortlessly repels water and has an anti-bacterial coating to prevent mildew. Moreover, its distinct turban silhouette and eccentric prints make it wearable outside the bathroom (to, let’s say, the pool). Although reviewers rave about its multi-functionality and fun design, it’s important to keep in mind that thicker-maned individuals find it difficult to hold all of their hair.

How big is this shower cap? Probably large enough to accommodate Rihanna’s lush faux locs in Ocean’s 8, Ariana Grande’s signature flowing ponytail, the late Amy Winehouse’s trademark beehive, and Diana Ross’ famous afro. Check the review pictures if you don’t believe us.

10 Best for Thick Hair (Runner-up) Waterproof Reusable Women Shower Caps QBA $9.99 SHOP NOW

12 Best Anti-Frizz Large Satin Lined Shower Cap Glow By Daye $21.96 SHOP NOW

Satin is one of the best materials for your hair since it helps to retain its moisture and reduce friction (which prevents frizz). We love that this cap helps to preserve your style in the shower, but can also be used to protect your hair at night.
