The satin top material is very soft and sensuous feeling, rubbing smoothly between your fingers. The inner plastic liner is a bit crinkly and is smooth, which adds to the comfort. The ribbon decor is lightly ridged and small, not getting in the way of removal or your eyesight. The words are screened onto the satin and have lasted through the four washings I have given this cap.
The elastic band that is in between the liner and satin is very stretchy and does not pull your hair. This cap will accommodate very long, waist length hair. It will also work very well for shorter hair. It stays in place throughout your shower or bath and is very cute and comfortable.
You do need to hand wash this cap in cool water with mild detergent and let it air dry due to the plastic liner.
The odor of fresh, new plastic was seriously prevalent when I removed the cap from its box. After about 15 minutes of airing out, it pretty much went completely away. There was no odor whatsoever after about half an hour of airing out.
Doccia Me Shower Cap performed very well for me. I have waist length hair and sometimes have had problems getting all of it to fit inside a cap. This one fit very well, was super comfortable and looked very pretty. I also recommend this as a pretty addition to a gift basket for friends or relatives. The packaging was exquisite and feminine making this a wonderful and pretty gift.
The satin material does get damp in the shower, but I have not had any water stains stay in the material. I do hand wash after using and store it in the original packaging on my bathroom vanity.
The package is a very beautiful punk box that has fold overs at the ends. You open the fold and pull your cap out. The front has a pretty and very contrasting black ribbon with a fancy decal in the center. The back of the box has a short blurb about the shower cap and manufacturer's information. There is no materials list or cleaning instructions.
The box measures 6"long, 3 3/4" wide and 1 1/4" deep. It makes a wonderful accessory in a bath gift basket or as a personal gift for a friend or relative. I plan on getting a full set of bath products as a gift for a friend for Valentine's day. This bath line is made for pampering you, being beautiful and functional. Well worth the money spent!
