Many hairstylists and colorists agree that washing your hair every single day isn’t best (unless you have super oily hair or fine hair), but that doesn’t necessarily mean you want to limit your showers to just a couple of times a week. Sure, you toss your hair up in a messy top knot, but this method isn’t exactly foolproof if you’re looking to prevent your day-two locks from getting wet. The best solution? A cute shower cap will keep your mane (and yesterday’s blowout) nice and covered.

While shower caps were popular in the ’50s and ’60s—I mean, they were kind of a look back then—the plastic, disposable styles you’ll find in hotel bathroom have become the gold standard. Fortunately, nowadays, there are plenty of super cute shower caps to rock and keep your locks shielded from water. These reinvented, modern-day hair protectors not only keep your hair nice and dry, but they also block humidity from de-volumizing your ‘do. Best of all, they dry super quickly post-shower and are machine-washable.

But that’s not all they have to offer—you can also use them while you sleep to prevent frizz and kinks or wear one while you let your hair mask sit and work its magic without the conditioner getting all over your clothes and furniture. Seriously, while they may seem like a second thought when it comes to hair care, they’re actually a pretty worthy investment.
