Express Review: Save the Blow Dry + Giveaway!

I hate washing my hair every day. In fact, I find (like most girls) that second day hair with a dose of dry shampoo is so much easier to style. I usually end up taking a bath instead of a shower to avoid getting my hair wet, so I was excited by the opportunity to try out Save the Blow Dry. The U.K.-based company sent me one to try out and so far I think it’s been really useful.

STBD Cap and pack shot

The idea behind the cap is to help your blow out last a little bit longer by keeping water away from your hair and absorbing moisture and humidity. The outside is a waterproof plastic cap and inside is a micro weave towel lining. The cap is big enough to accommodate long hair and has an elastic band to keep it in place. I suffer from terrible headaches, so I like that I doesn’t fit super tight like some other caps.

Here are how they say you should use it and how I tried it out:

  • Brush Hair
  • Pin it up
  • Cover with Save the Blow Dry ensuring that the hairline is covered too
  • Shower as usual
  • Dry off, especially your face, before removing the cap
  • Shake excess water off cap and let dry

I loved this! The cap kept water away from my hair and had a very comfortable fit. There was plenty of room to put my hair up in a bun and be able to fit the cap over it. In fact, this was an awesome way to use it because the combination of twisting my hair up into a bun and the heat from the shower left me with full-bodied waves. I just took my hair down, teased it a bit, and was good to go! (P.S. Check my Instagram in the next few days and I’ll share a pic of me sporting my Save the Blow Dry!)

I also think this cap is great to flip inside out (so the plastic layer is on the inside) and use it to cover your hair when doing a deep conditioning treatment. Just be sure to thoroughly rinse the cap when you’re done. It has quickly become a fun part of my shower routine.

The cap retails for £14.95 or about $25 and shipping is about $5 to the U.S. I think it’s a great value for the quality of the product and for the time you’ll save. The only downside, if you could even call it one, is that the shipping time is a little delayed because the product comes from the U.K.

I also love that this is a company that gives back! Save the Blow Dry has partnered with Khandel Light and every Save the Blow Dry sold through their website directly funds a fortnight’s safe drinking water for a family in the Khandel desert region of India.

    My hair is like a sponge. It doesn’t dry quick and when it does dry it dries so bad. I would love to be able to let it dry in this nice cap while I’m still able to do other things..

    I guess my biggest hair dilemma would be dealing with frizz when humidity gets to my hair. I have long wavy hair and often get compliments on how much people love my hair but sometimes it drives me crazy. I use a shower cap currently whenever I’m not washing my hair and this one just looks a lot better and with the material inside and being able to absorb moisture and humidity, I think it’s great. Thanks for the chance to win!

    My dilemma right now is whether to cut my hair or let it grow longer. I used to have SUPER long hair and enjoyed it because it was fun and different, but it’s a hassle to take care of and I don’t like how I get kind of stereotyped as either very conservative or very hippie when I have a long braid of hair down my back. (Funny, because conservative and hippie are so different, but it usually depends on the type person who’s jumping to conclusions about me, lol.)

    My hair is thick so it can sometimes become unmanageable if i’m not careful!

    I hate shower caps but I have such thick hair that I can’t wash it every day. I usually end up bob-and-weaving in the shower to avoid getting my hair wet, but it doesn’t work well. I pinned this to Products I Love so I can look it up and try it later. I’m visiting from SITS. It’s nice to meet you.
