Best overall

Fashionista Collection Mildew Resistant Lined Shower Cap

Over 5,000 Amazon reviewers have anointed this number one shower cap on the site. It has a mold resistant PEVA liner (a safer alternative to carcinogenic PVC), a firm elastic band and a spacious interior. It is also very easy to clean because it is machine washable.


Goody Styling Essentials Shower Cap, Assorted Colors 1 ea. (Pack of 5)

This product has everything you want in a shower cap: a secure elastic band, a sturdy design and a large size. It is also ideal for deep conditioning treatments, as the interior is easy to wash.


Best adjustable

Adjustable shower cap, green

If a weak elastic is your pet peeve, you’ll love the adjustable straps on this waterproof beanie. Tie a tight knot when you take a wet shower, then release it when you do your skin care routine. We like that it doesn’t leave a boring indentation.


Best ecological

Terry lined shower cap


$ 18.00

If you want to make an eco-friendly purchase, this BPA and PVC free shower cap should be your first choice. Scientists believe that BPA, a chemical used to make plastic, can act as a hormone disruptor. When absorbed into the water supply, it can have a negative effect on aquatic life.


Great for braids

Braided shower cap

M&M Hairstyles

$ 4.44

Cascading box braids or passion twists can fit comfortably into this bag-shaped shower accessory. It features a velcro button that allows you to easily remove your protected braids from your shoulders like a traditional cap.


Best elegant

Luxury shower cap

Fashion and function blend effortlessly with this cup-shaped shower cap. You can choose from several sophisticated prints ranging from chic stripes to cool toned flowers. While the front is adorned with an alluring bow, the back has an elastic band that allows you to comfortably tuck all of your hair.


Ideal for fine hair

Stir it


$ 43.00

SHHHOWERCAP is undoubtedly one of the most sophisticated hair accessories. It is made from a non-plastic nanotechnology fabric that effortlessly repels water and has an anti-bacterial coating to prevent mildew. Plus, its distinct turban silhouette and quirky prints make it wearable outside of the bathroom (at, say, the pool). While critics rave about its multifunctionality and fun design, it’s important to keep in mind that people with thicker manes find it difficult to hold all of their hair together.


Ideal for thick hair

Super Jumbo Premium Collection Shower Cap

How big is this shower cap? Probably large enough to accommodate Rihanna’s lush faux locs in Ocean’s 8, Ariana Grande’s signature flowing ponytail, Amy Winehouse’s iconic beehive and Diana Ross’ famous afro. Check the photos from the review if you don’t believe us.


Ideal for thick hair (second)

Waterproof reusable shower caps for women


Don’t be fooled by the seemingly small appearance of this cap. Its gathered band allows it to expand to accommodate the thickest hair.


Best variety

Bathing cap


$ 7.79

If you don’t like sharing, buy this shower cap quad so everyone in your house can have theirs. We love that the eco-friendly material has a luxurious, satin-like finish.


Best anti-frizz

Large satin lined shower cap

Glow By Daye

$ 21.96

Satin is one of the best materials for your hair because it helps retain moisture and reduce friction (which prevents frizz). We love that this cap helps preserve your style in the shower, but can also be used to protect your hair at night.
