Also, the hats are highly breathable in hot weather but keep you warm when the weather turns chilly. They are also three times more absorbent than cotton which helps with perspiration. They contain 5% lycra which ensures a secure and comfortable fit.

Key Benefits

  • Beautiful style with ruching and elegant flower
  • Non-irritant to sensitive scalps
  • Antibacterial properties in bamboo mean the skin is less prone to infection
  • Made from 95% bamboo and 5% lycra for a soft and secure fit

Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?

I saw this on here three days ago, ordered one on Wednesday and last night what little was left of my hair fell out ....pretty upsetting .... However this mornings post has just arrived and my bamboo hat was wrapped up beautifully in tissue paper, it's so comfortable and I love it.

Sorrento Bamboo Hat FAQs

Is the Sorrento Bamboo Hat appropriate to wear if my scalp is sensitive?

Yes. The bamboo fabric is purposefully used to decrease irritation for those who have sensitive scalps. Excess sweating can also cause scalp irritation and itchiness. Bamboo is known for its absorbency so will reduce scalp irritation by taking excess sweat away. 

Why do I need a bamboo hat?

Treatment for cancer can often cause you to lose your hair. Many people like to use head coverings but can find a lot of hats and wigs hot, itchy and uncomfortable. Bamboo hats, on the other hand, are perfect for cancer-related hair loss, due to the incredible softness of bamboo, along with its antibacterial properties. These combined make bamboo hats much less likely to irritate the scalp than wigs.

Furthermore, bamboo hats are warm enough to keep you warm in the winter, but breathable enough to be comfortable in the summer too. They're also three times more absorbent than cotton, which is extra handy if the heat is causing perspiration. 

How many colours does the Sorrento Bamboo Hat come in?

The Sorrento Bamboo Hat comes in seven different colours.

Who would benefit from the Sorrento Bamboo Hat?

The Sorrento Bamboo Hat would suit anyone living with hair loss, including thinning hair, patchiness or balding. Its antimicrobial properties mean it won’t irritate even the most sensitive scalps. The soft bamboo fabric and absorbent material also mean it can be worn for long periods at a time and not cause irritation.

Does the Sorrento Bamboo Hat come in patterns?

No, currently the bamboo hat only comes in solid colours. The bamboo hat does have an elegant flower on its side, setting it apart from plain bamboo hats.

Why is the Sorrento Bamboo hat so comfortable?

The comfort of the Sorrento hat lies within its fabric and style. Bamboo hats for cancer patients are usually well tolerated for a number of reasons. Bamboo fabric hats are soft, breathable and warm. Meaning they can be worn in winter and keep your head warm, but also be worn in summer or warmer months without overheating.

Why is absorbency important when choosing a hat?

People sweat, and when sweat dries, due to bacteria living in your skin (including your scalp), it irritates your scalp and makes it start to itch. This is why many people find wigs itchy, partly due to the fabric they use, but also because that wigs are not that breathable (which is why they look great and provide full coverage), and cause your head to sweat. Bamboo fabric hats wick away excess sweat. Meaning that the sweat is not sitting on your scalp to dry and become itchy. People often comment how long and easy they can wear their Sorrento Bamboo hat without it being itchy or their scalp becoming irritated.

Can I wear the Sorrento Bamboo hat at night time when I sleep?

Technically you can, people often find wearing a sleeping cap at night helps keep their head warm overnight. Also if you are currently experiencing hair loss, wearing a cap can help ease the anxiety of seeing hair loss on your pillow, as it collects in the cap. The Sorrento Bamboo hat is not made with sleeping in mind, and you may find it uncomfortable sleeping on the side with the rose applique on it. However, if you know that won’t be an issue and would prefer to wear it than a thinner, less detailed, sleep cap, there is no reason why you cannot.

Is the Sorrento Bamboo hat suitable for swimming in?

Unfortunately, the Sorrento Bamboo hat is not suitable for swimming in, as the hat is not waterproof. In fact, bamboo fabrics are actually highly absorbent (three times more absorbent than cotton!). This wonderful fabric helps to wick moisture away from the skin to prevent perspiration. This means that if you're suffering from night sweats, bamboo pyjamas are a fantastic solution.

  2. Toni - Saturday, 10 February 2018

    Sorrento cap

    Love it. So comfy, elegant and feminine. How about more colors, like dark gray and navy blue?

  3. Daria Carraro - Monday, 05 February 2018

    Sorrento Bamboo Hat

    I love the hat. It looks great on; I ordered more. My only complaint is that it keeps sliding up, and I have to keep tugging it down. I wish it were a bit longer.

  4. Ann - Tuesday, 26 December 2017

    Sorrento Rose hats

    Elegant, comfortable, perfect fit - not too tight nor too loose but flexible. Warm enough when out in the cold and cool enough when indoors.

  5. Jolene Navatta - Saturday, 09 December 2017

    Confidence booster

    It’s a beautiful hat that fits and feels great. It helped me to feel beautiful and confident in my first days after hair loss.

  6. Una - Saturday, 09 December 2017

    Great hat

    The bamboo hat is so comfortable and looks smart. I have lots of positive comments when wearing it. My hair is not completely gone but my head gets cold so it is a boon. I now have 4 hats so I can vary to match my outfit or mood. Thanks

  7. Kellie Murphy - Sunday, 19 November 2017

    Comfort and Beauty!

    Hello, I have ordered 4 of these hats, in a variety of beautiful colors, designs and fabrics for a dear friend. She ways these are the most comfortable of her choices ( vs. wigs or scarves). A wonderful product for those who need a comfy head covering during chemo. Excellent product!

  8. Annie - Thursday, 14 September 2017

    So comfy

    Thrilled with this comfy hat and very smart too. Going to get at least another one in another colour. Fits just beautifully.

  9. Allison Anbari - Monday, 11 September 2017

    Exactly what I had been looking for!

    I had been looking for a cap that didn't make me feel like a pirate and that I could quickly throw on without worrying about tying, wrapping, etc. THIS IS IT. I have 6 of these now in various colors - that's how awesome they are. Super soft and very stylish - I get a ton of compliments on them. Perfection.

  10. Arlene - Saturday, 09 September 2017

    Bamboo hat

    I bought it for my daughter. It is very pretty. She has not worn it yet, as she still has not lost her hair. I think she will like it though when she needs it.

  13. Satisfied in Acton - Sunday, 13 August 2017

    Silky Comfort

    I purchased the Sorrento Bamboo hat with some apprehension....a hat made from bamboo fibres? It arrived promptly, was well packed and when I tried it was so comfortably silky. I could not believe how good it felt. It is stylish and has become an essential part of my wardrobe. Thank you Live Better...........your company is definitely added to my Favourite Contacts List .

  14. Sandra - Monday, 17 July 2017

  15. Jo - Sunday, 16 July 2017

    Fast service

    Lovely product. Very happy. Thank you

  16. Margaret - Thursday, 13 July 2017

    So comfortable

    I bought this for my daughter. When I asked if it was alright, she said it was so comfy and a lot better than messing about with scarves. The only time it leaves her head is when she's in bed.

  17. Mrs Erica Rye - Friday, 30 June 2017

    Comfortable, stylish and easy to put on and off

    Bought for my sister who has lost her hair to chemo. She Had been using scarves but found it such an effort such an effort to put them on when suffering from severe fatigue. She can just slip the Sorrento on and is ready to face the world. Thank you for producing such a great product and at a price that makes it accessible to those who need it.

  18. Zoe - Sunday, 25 June 2017

    Bamboo chemo hat

    Really comfortable stylish hat made out of lovely soft material. I have been complimented many times whilst wearing the two hats that I bought and I will definitely be buying another. Very good value for money. So pleased.

    Sorrento hat, cream

    I have another Sorrento hat, in a different colour, and like it very much; this cream colour is unfortunately not to my taste as it is very light and the texture feels different from the green one I have; I feel that any other colour would have been better than cream as this looks more like something to wear indoor than outside.

  20. Susan Ravenhill - Sunday, 07 May 2017

    Elegant and comfortable

    Have always been conscious of wearing hats but now the time has come to have to for my own self-esteem. These hats are elegant in a simplistic way, very soft material which makes it a comfortable wear.

  21. Ginny - Friday, 28 April 2017

    Love my hat

    Great hat! Very comfortable. I bought 2...the steel blue & the mocha. The steel blue has gray undertones & the mocha has purple undertones. I love them both.

    I luv these and would like a couple to wear when weather demands! However, I haven't got Cancer - would it be in poor taste? My husband has been dx with bowel cancer.

    Hair loss

    I bought this to donate to someone or to a hospice, because I thought it looked stylish and cheerful at a time when things look pretty grim. So I can't really comment on it other than hope it helps someone.

  37. Maureen - Wednesday, 08 February 2017

    I loved it, so comfortable to wear

    Sorrento Bamboo Hat

    Absolutely love these hats they are so comfortable and stylish. I always get compliments when I wear them .

  40. Becky - Thursday, 06 October 2016

    Stress Free Hat Wearing!!

    I bought two of these hats for my mum well before she lost her hair through Chemotherapy. I purchased them purely after a web search because the ones my mum had bought looked quiet dowdy. These hats have been continually worn and are still in the excellent condition that they were purchased in. They are beautiful colours, they look extremely classy and are such good value for money. In fact every time my mum wore one of the hats to hospital when she was having her chemo and now for her follow up appointments, somebody will stop and ask us where she got them. We are so happy to promote this website and give out your details because these hats are so lovely and the experience of purchasing them through has been so good. Thankyou so much for taking the stress out of my mum losing her hair ;-)
