Hats for Hair Loss from Headcovers
Hats are known for their ability to instantly fix a bad day. Fine - a bad hair day. If you’re experiencing hair loss due to cancer, alopecia or other illnesses, chances are that, lately, you’ve had more bad hair days than good. That’s where Headcovers comes in. Our cancer headwear was specifically designed with hair loss in mind to provide you with an excellent fit and stylish finish. Whether you’re looking for a permanent alternative to a typical wig, or just searching for a low-maintenance, occasional substitute, having a good hat - or three - can completely transform your hair loss experience.
What Makes Our Cancer Hats Special
You’ll notice that most of the hats we have for sale fit rather close to the head. That’s because we know that hats for cancer patients need to account for receding or absent hairlines. Our hats are designed to offer complete head coverage while staying secure and in place. No longer will you have to worry about constantly readjusting your cap. Our cancer caps are mostly one size fits all, so unless you have an especially large or petite head, they’ll stretch or cling to match your shape. If you think that your head size may be different than most, give us a call at 1-800-264-4287 (HATS) - we can recommend options that will work for you.
Comfort is also a top priority when it comes to hats for cancer patients. A soft hat made of natural fibers can be a godsend in the midst of any pain your illness may be causing. Nowhere on our site will you find a cancer hat that’s scratchy or cheap. Cotton, bamboo or silk, chiffon & satin are wonderful options for sensitive scalps.
Which Style of Hat Should You Choose?
Just like other finishing pieces such as jackets or scarves, certain styles and colors of cancer caps will be more versatile in your wardrobe than others. Obviously, neutrals like black or grey will match anything, and are a great place to start if you’re looking for a an everyday cancer hat.
When it comes to versatility, our Serendipity Hat is a great place to start. This simple beanie with clean lines can easily be dressed up or down. It’s made of a delicious blend of cotton and rayon that will feel silky smooth against your scalp. Also, don’t dispel sparkles from your list of easy-to-pull-off styles. In black or white, our Sparkle Slouchy Cap looks just as natural with jeans and a T-shirt as it does with stockings and a skirt.
Since our hats for cancer patients are at such an affordable price point, don’t be afraid to buy a few. Think of them like any other accessory - some days you wear the big gold chain, and others a simple pair of studs will do. Our Flapper Turban, designed by our very own Danielle Yates, is a fabulous finisher for occasions that require a little something special. To catch a game on the green, check out our Softie Baseball Cap. And when the seasons change, we’ve got you covered with thick, chunky knits - just don’t forget the mug of hot cocoa.
For cancer patients who are undergoing chemo treatments, it is especially vital to protect your skin from the sun. Some chemotherapy drugs increase sensitivity of the skin to sunlight, causing you to burn much quicker than you normally would. Chemo treatments can also reduce the skin's natural ability to heal. For this reason, women with cancer are advised to protect themselves when going outdoors.
To shield your face, scalp and neck, we recommend our full coverage sun hats and visors. Our visors are also ideal when worn over a scarf to protect yourself from the elements. We even offer our very own cancer hats crafted from soft UPF sun protection fabrics. These stylish, functional headcovers are a year-round favorite.
