How to stay itch-free under your winter or summer hat

Do you love hats? Or has someone suggested that you experiment with a hat during chemo because it looks so stylish? Go for it! Hats are right back in fashion and they give your look a real dash of style. But bear in mind that a wool or felt winter hat might feel scratchy against your scalp. On hot summer days, your sensitive skin might soon get irritated under your lovely straw boater. But that’s easy to fix: wear a light cap or scarf underneath!

Chemo sleep caps: soft and discreet

Yes, that’s right: you can wear your chemo sleep cap under your hat during the day as well. Your sensitive scalp can definitely use an extra layer of comfort during chemo, in a neutral or fun colour or print. The thing is that ordinary hats are not designed to be worn directly against the scalp. They often have a band, ribbon or stitching on the inside that may irritate your skin. The material itself can also make your skin feel itchy: wool or felt for winter hats, or the straw or paper used for sunhats in summer. In that case, our chemo hats with a soft finish come straight to the rescue!

A chemo bandana with a knot at the nape of your neck: right on trend

Meet the lightest chemo head scarf in our collection: Audrey. A feather-light bandana tied at the neck with one or two simple knots. Finished without abrasive stitching or elastic, in a light and airy cotton mix. The perfect head wrap to wear under your trendy straw boater or super-feminine panama hat this summer. Wear the knot nice and low at the nape of your neck, because an extra section of fabric at the back makes sure this chemo head wrap sufficiently covers your hairline. Wraps that sit too high on your neck will leave your neck uncovered, which is not a good look and may make you feel less confident. Just leave the two short ties peeking out from under your hat, to create a fashionable, feminine touch. Available in solid colours and a selection of trendy, colourful prints.
