The Headache Relief Cap is a compression fitting cap that is designed to help ease the strain of headaches, migraines, facial strain, anxiety, puffy eyes and even the dreaded hangover.

Our Relief Cap provides 360° of hot or cold compression. It is made from a durable, flexible material ensuring to accommodate all head sizes. It is filled with a non-toxic, medical grade liquid and doubles as a complete black out eye mask. It allows for comfortable wear throughout the day, making it your go-to solution for headache management.

The caps are extremely reliable, easy to use and most importantly are reusable.

How to use:

Cold compression

  1. Place the cap in the refrigerator or freezer. We recommend at least 20 minutes to 1 hour in the freezer or 1 to 2 hours in the refrigerator.  
  2. Once the cap is cold, simply place it on to wear.

Hot compression

  1. The product can be heated in the microwave (outside of plastic sleeve) on a medium-low setting for 1 minute. Please let it sit to cool to your desired and comfortable temperature before wearing the product.
  2. If you find it is not warm enough, heat the cap further in 30 second intervals.

Why is compression good for headaches?

Cold compression benefits:

Cold compression is known to reduce your blood flow, in return this helps support the body with easing inflammation.

The cold compress also constricts blood vessels and helps reduce the neurotransmission to the brain. 

Many studies made have shown that people who suffer from migraines benefit from cold compression.

Hot compression benefits 

Most studies indicate that cold compression is more effective, however, some people respond better to heat. The heat works by stimulating the nerve endings called thermoreceptors, which may block the pain signals from that area to the brain. 

It also works the opposite effect to cold compression. It increases the blood flow, which increases oxygen, proteins, and other nutrients to the area in pain.

Hot and Cold compression together

If you are able to, we recommend owning two individual caps for the purpose of rotating between hot and cold compression immediately after each other. The application of hot and cold compresses can increase blood circulations that carry the oxygen. The hot and cold sensation relaxes the nerves that can trigger the pain signal to the brain.

Extra benefits (that are not headache related)

Even when you don't have a headache, try it out for the ultimate relaxation experience. The Cap can be used when you have anxiety as the weight puts your autonomic nervous system into "rest mode" reducing known symptoms of anxiety.

It can be used as an eye mask to reduce puffy eyes or to block out all light and is your perfect travel buddy.

Care Instructions

1. We recommended using an Alcohol Spray and Wipe: Using an alcohol-based spray or makeup wipe, gently clean the surface of the product. This will help sanitise and remove any dirt or residue that may have accumulated.

2. Spot Cleaning: For any localised stains or spills on the product, you can use a damp cloth with mild soap to gently spot clean the affected area.

3. Hand Washing the Gel: If necessary, you can hand wash the cap. To hand wash, gently wash it with mild soap and lukewarm water. Rinse thoroughly and allow it to air dry before use. Please note that this method is not favorable as it may cause the gel inside the product to become unshaped.


  • Avoid Submerging: It's important to avoid submerging the entire cap in water or any other liquids. This can damage the gel components and reduce the effectiveness of the product.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could damage the cap or your skin.
