About Shhhowercap


We believe that you should never feel less than 100%. That beauty products should only help you feel beautiful. And you should never keep anything around (a person, place or product) that makes you feel anything less than your best self.

We reinvented the shower cap because it needed reinventing. SHHHOWERCAP has a turban inspired silhouette and fashion forward textile designs. Plus, it works better than anything on the market. Tried, tested, and patent pending.
