Frequently asked questions

Skipper shower caps go on in two steps. First, you connect the band around your head, as tight as you like. Then, if your hair is not already tied up in a bun, you can gather any long hair up and place it through the opening in the back. The opening in the back is then closed by tightening a drawstring.

The band adjusts in the back, so it can be tighter or looser to accommodate a range of head sizes. The shell has a lot of room to expand in the back, so long or voluminous hair can be gathered inside. Our 45-day return policy allows you to return it if it doesn't fit.

Note: A larger size to accommodate really big hair is in development. Sign up for our newsletter (at the bottom of this page) to be notified about new products.

When the drawstring at the back is tightened, the opening is closed. It's in the back, on the bottom, and has a slight fabric overhang (like a hood), so water runs off the sides and doesn't soak upwards. As long as you aren't turning your head upside down in the shower (who is?), you should be covered. This is a shower cap not a swim cap, after all.

When it needs a refresh, toss your Skipper shower cap into the wash on a gentle cycle, then hang to dry. Do not iron it or use bleach.

To avoid it from getting smelly, allow your Skipper shower cap to dry completely before uses. The lining is made with a 100% recycled polyester that is anti-bacterial, which will help it stay fresh longer. It's worn against warm, unclean hair, so it will need to be washed occasionally. When it needs a refresh, toss it in the washing machine on a gentle cycle and hang to dry.

Skipper shower caps are proudly designed and produced in Canada.

The shell is a breathable, water-resistant material, similar to a rain coat.

The lining is 100% recycled polyester. It's smooth so it won't snag your hair. It wicks away sweat under the cap, and is anti-bacterial to keep it smelling fresh longer. It is used against unwashed hair, after all.

The band is lined with a plush fabric that keeps it in place without leaving marks. It's also sound dampening if you wear the cap across your ears.

This is not your old shower cap. This is something completely new. That's how Skipper started—because we couldn't find a good enough one on the market. This is made with high quality, technical materials (not cheap plastic or vinyl), and it's lovingly made in Canada. You're paying for the elevated materials and smart design.

More colours are in development! Sign up for our newsletter to hear about Skipper news and special offers.
