We’re clearly fans of every type of hat here at Headcovers, but cotton hats might just be our favorite ones of all! If you’re a hat aficionado already, you may be familiar with Parkhurst hats; if that’s the case, you’ll also love our collection of cotton hats for all seasons and occasions. We find cotton hats exceptional for their unsurpassed versatility, everyday comfort, and wide array of styles that range from sporty to elegant. Once you’ve discovered one cotton hat you love, you’ll quickly find yourself adding a few more to your closet!
Why Choose a Cotton Hat?
You likely have a number of cotton clothes in your wardrobe—there are lots of reasons that this fabric is a tried-and-true favorite when it comes to fashionable attire (and hats, of course!). First and foremost, cotton is extremely comfortable. It breathes easily so it’s suitable for every season, and doesn’t contain any artificial fibers that might irritate your skin. Cotton drapes beautifully, so you can be sure a cotton hat will be incredibly flattering. This fabric is also all natural, so you can feel good about being fashionable and eco-friendly. Finally, cotton is easy to care for; you can wear and clean your cotton hats often without worrying about expensive dry cleaning or finicky washing routines.
Cotton Hats for Cancer Patients
If you’ve experienced hair loss due to cancer treatment, hats take on a whole new importance as part of your daily wardrobe. Many of our hats are specially designed with features to meet the needs of cancer patients. If you’re purchasing your first hat after hair loss, cotton is a great choice because it’s a natural and supremely soft fabric, so it won’t irritate your scalp if your skin is more sensitive than usual. You’ll also want to look for a hat designed with extra volume, which mimics the look of hair underneath.
The most important feature of a cancer hat is complete coverage; you want the hat to cover all areas where hair would normally grow, from the nape of the neck to the hairline. Our cotton beanies and turbans are great choices for full coverage; you might also consider a printed cotton head scarf for a more colorful look. (Check out our scarf tying guide here!). Still not sure which hat is perfect for your needs? Here are a few more tips on what to look for in a cancer hat.
Everyday Sun Protection
If you love to explore the great outdoors, sun protection becomes a key factor when choosing a hat. Your skin is exposed to UV light every time you step into the sun, and that can mean serious damage to your complexion and your eyes if you don’t provide them with enough protection. Shielding your skin from the sun is especially important if you’re undergoing cancer treatment; chemotherapy makes your skin more sensitive and slower to heal, so you’ll want to keep your scalp and face out of direct sunlight. When you’re planning to spend time at the beach, in the garden, or simply in your backyard, look for a hat with a wider brim for extra sun protection, like a cotton baseball cap or bucket hat. You might also choose a hat with a UPF rating, which provides additional protection from harmful rays.
Finding Your Hat Style
Cloches, visors, beanies, baseball caps, fedoras, turbans…there are so many types of hats that it can feel overwhelming to choose the perfect style! Luckily, there are lots of ways to narrow down your options. You can start with your face shape, facial structure, and overall body type to see which hats will be most flattering. From there, feel free to have fun! Select hats in vibrant shades that complement your wardrobe, pick out some dressy options for special occasions, and even invest in a few hat accessories that make it easy to change up your look every day.
