ABOUT US
SHHHOWERCAP is a game changing reinvention of the shower cap, for both form and function. We're challenging, and changing, perception of this outdated beauty item, for the 90% women that don't wash their hair every day.

The patented innovation is the brainchild of Jackie De Jesu, an ex advertising Creative Director. Her creative skills and problem solving have created the first brand of its kind -- capturing this one of a kind whitespace opportunity and creating an entirely new category of hair care.

Having disrupted the category since its inception, SHHHOWERCAP has experienced unprecedented growth in the two and half years since launch. Featured in VOGUEFORBES, The New York Times, GlamourFast Company, Today Show, Essence, Refinery29, Byrdie (and many others). We're currently stocked in retailers across the world -- Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Revolve, and Goop. Through prestigious independent stockists and a powerful digital presence, the brand continues to show incredible growth in both e-comm and wholesale selling channels.

Within our larger company mission at DEEJAYZOO, our future innovations will continue to solve the problems of today's women through the power of design thinking. In the beauty category, and beyond.

The SHHHOWERCAP team is made up of strong, smart, capable women who never settle. We'd love to meet you.
