Sage's Shampoo Caps allow you to wash your hair without getting wet.

Showerless shampooing
Most of us turn to shower caps to keep our hair dry, but Sage's Shampoo Caps will wash your hair — while keeping you dry. The rinse-free caps are not only a handy alternative to shampooing in the shower, perfect for camping trips and more, but also a helpful aid to healthcare professionals. Simply warm the cap in a microwave, slip it on, and massage away to absorb dirt and oil ($3.69, sageproducts.com).
