Struggling to get your hair under a shower cap? Now here is a solution for big fros and long locs.
My name is Margie Cattouse, the owner of Celestial Comforter, LLC, a little business I started after having been laid off my job of 25 years in late 2008. This company was the other road not taken.
My product is called “Celestial Crowns Shower Caps”. I originally developed my “Shower Crowns” for an underserved, locked hair community, of which I am a proud card carrying member.
My locs were approaching shoulder-length, yet I was having difficulty placing this hair I adore in any shower cap currently available in the market. Not only were they too small, they lacked durability and were totally devoid of any aesthetic appeal. I wondered what in the world would I do as my hair grew to its zenith.
So, I conducted an independent survey of my peer population with longer, heavier locs and I was shocked and dismayed by the responses given. Here, were the descendants of Kings and Queens, using garbage bags, dry cleaners plastic, multiple unreliable shower caps, playing dodge the shower nozzle and other innovative methods, in an attempt to avoid getting their luxurious locs wet.
I researched in stores and on-line sites for oversized shower caps and was thoroughly underwhelmed! What existed, lacked knowledge of, or an affinity for this particular community of potential customers…. quite simply lacked LOVE.
I decided to design a better mousetrap, making a shower cap that would be sturdier, more attractive and mindful of price. My optimum goal is to have everyone in the natural hair community world-wide owning at least one “Celestial Crowns Shower Cap”, never again wearing a garbage bag.
I debuted my Crowns at the Transcendence Hair Show in New York in October. They were extremely well received, with responses like “God Bless you Sister”, “This can’t be what I think it is”, “You made a shower cap for us, Awww”, and my favorite “I thought of making an oversized shower cap (correction my sister CROWN), but I was too lazy and asked God to direct me to someone that had created one”…(prayers are answered with a Yes sometimes my love).
As you can see from the picture my Crowns come in 3 different sizes, XL, L, and Mini-Crowns. Mini -Crowns, were created by popular demand, born out of the “envy” of friends and family without natural hair, wanting a durable, funkier shower cap.
My friend said “Margie I want to shower in a crown too, lol! As an added feature to “The Shower Crown”, a 15mm nickel snap has been attached on the large and ex-large to serve dual purposes,
1) to hold heavier, lengthier hair, which can fall out the back of the crown, or
2) for use by people with permed, braids, weaves or silky straight hair.
When individuals with processed hair use the snap, they pull the crown back and allow their hair to cascade into the fullness of the Crown, no need to wrap their hair prior to getting into the shower. Crowns are attractively packaged in clear plastic, die cut handle bags with “Celestial Crowns” in gold script lettering. Furthermore, the bags are heat-sealed for shipping.
