First For Women - - Style -

Any­thing that will re­store lus­ter to win­ter-worn locks is a “yes” in our

book! En­ter Hot Head Ther­mal Hair Care ($30, Ther­malHairCare.com), a mi­crowave­able cap filled with flaxseed (it’s said to hold up to 45 min­utes of heat) that’s worn over strands af­ter ap­ply­ing a deep con­di­tioner. The heat opens hairs’ cu­ti­cles so in­gre­di­ents can bet­ter pen­e­trate. But can it hold heat bet­ter than a plas­tic shower cap? Our con­sen­sus: “The in­tense heat only lasted around 10 min­utes, so I had to put it back in the mi­crowave. But even with the lim­ited amount of heat, my hair was sig­nif­i­cantly softer and shinier than it usu­ally is af­ter my weekly leave-in treat­ment.”

—Patty Bon­tekoe, FIRST ex­ec­u­tive ed­i­tor “It felt re­ally heavy on my head and kept slip­ping down when I tried to move around. Plus, the odor emit­ted by the microwaved flaxseeds was a lit­tle off-putting.”

—Leann Garo­folo, FIRST as­sis­tant ed­i­tor
