Product Questions

Why should I wear a hat?

If you are undergoing chemotherapy you might experience one of the most common side effects; hair loss. Hats can be a good friend! It’s always important to protect yourself from harmful sun rays, but even indoors you might want to wear something warm and comfortable. A lightweight cotton beanie hat is especially good when it comes to sensitive skin. Cotton fabric is breathable and comfortable and tends to stay on a smooth scalp better than nylon or polyester. It’s also stretchy, so it will always provide a custom fit.

How should I choose a beanie hat?

You should always make sure the hats you wear are made of a soft fabric. Natural fibres such as wool, cotton and bamboo are less irritating than man-made fibres such as polyester. A soft cotton sleep hat is an excellent choice for its lightweight, stretchy fabric provides a snug and secure fit, allowing you to sleep comfortably while keeping you warm at night. If we're picking a beanie the we're going to wear to bed, it is also a good idea to pick a lightweight fabric in order to avoid your scalp to sweat excessively, which could lead to irritation and itchiness, and ultimately wake you up.

Why do some hats make my head itchy?

Itchiness is usually a consequence of wearing a hat for a long period of time. If you do wear a hat for a long time, you may find that the skin on your scalp becomes somewhat sweaty. if the sweat builds up enough, your scalp might become irritable and itchy. Some materials, like certain wools, can tickle your scalp - contributing to the effect. Women who choose to wear indoor hats find the cotton fabric of this beanie to be breathable, which helps to prevent itchiness.

Should I wear my cap to sleep?

There are a few good reasons why you would want to wear a cotton beanie to sleep. Sleep caps are good for cold winter nights because they help keep your body warm. Moreover, hair on your pillow can prove to be a nuisance by waking you up at night and making you itchy. Wearing a soft cotton beanie can help to prevent this. Also, being reminded every morning of your hair loss can impair your mood and make you feel down. A stylish women’s cap might just help you retain some of that confidence (which we know is so important).

Why choose indoor hats?

 

Wigs or beanies are both great for head coverage, but sometimes all you’re really after is something soft and comfy to change into at the end of the day.  Indoor hats can provide just that.  Whether you’re at home, in the hospital, or simply looking for something comfortable to sleep in, this Cotton Sleep Hat is made especially for sensitive skin.  Made from 100% cotton, it’s both lightweight, breathable and snug.  In this way, indoor hats are great for helping you stay warm if you’re suffering from cold sensitivity, without the itchiness of heavier hats.

    Good for hair collection!

    This doesn't suit me at all but hey! I only wear it at night, it's comfortable and not hot, and does a great job of keeping fallen-out hair off the pillow. I suspect it will also be useful when I have no more hair and may feel a bit cold at night.

    Sleep Hat

    This hat is very soft & comfortable. The only thing is I wish it was just a little bit bigger. I like hats that cover my ears & this does not. The fit around is perfect.
