There is the saying that you should learn something new every day.
Well, dear reader, I have certainly done that, and once you’re done reading, you’ll have definitely learnt something new too.
Shower caps have been around since the early 1800s…. yup.
And believe me, shower caps weren’t always cloud-shaped and poofy, no, back then, they were cone-shaped, kind of like the construction cones…. Yeah, the orange ones.
Why?? - I asked myself that too, why dear god why?
Well, apparently they were shaped like this, so that the water drips down the cone, whilst keeping the bather’s head dry.
And, they were made out of oilcloth, so that the water doesn’t absorb into the cap. Pretty smart eh?
You can see in this photo, the kids are wearing their shower caps and covered in blankets while waiting for their turn to shower.
It was quite interesting to research all this, nevertheless, I am very grateful that we now have more elegant shower caps.
Can you imagine trying to shower with a construction cone shape on your head?!
The logistics already make me cringe!
Which is why I will not be taking my Dilly’s Collections Shower Cap for granted.
This soft microfiber cloud is all I need, no cones for me, unless it's an ice cream cone!
Winter has well and truly set in these past few weeks. There’s a chill in the air and the mornings are frosty. Winter is a great time to grow out your hair and get a colour change. But the cold weather can also cause hair damage and frizz. Not only does the cold dry out your skin, but it can also dry out your scalp and hair and moisture from the rain and fog can cause your hair to frizz and your styled locks to fall apart!
So here are a few easy tips to keep your hair healthy, and styled over winter.
