“The Morning After” Cap from Drybar

Because protected showering is the first step to saving your blowout.

We urgently need your help.  DAME reports the stories that need to be told, from perspectives that aren’t heard enough. In times of crisis it is even more critical that these voices are not overlooked, but COVID-19 has impacted our ability to keep publishing.

It’s definitely no Plan B, but the DryBar’s new “The Morning After” shower cap is pretty much like emergency contraception for your hair. If used correctly after a night of unprotected tresses, it can drastically reduce your risk of having a bad hair day by up to 100 percent.

After rigorous testing, the stunning results speak for themselves. Not only is it roomier than other shower caps (to accommodate your Cosmo or Mai-Tai, obviously), but it’s also lined with terrycloth to prevent any humidity from seeping in, getting trapped, and giving birth to big frizz.

Buy it over the counter, in stores, or online at At only $15 a pop, that’s a pretty easy pill to swallow.
