Summer Hats from Headcovers
When the sun gets hot and the weather gets humid, the idea of a hat may seem too stuffy for comfort. However, our breathable hats and turbans are specifically designed to provide you with a lightweight layer of silky smooth protection, total hair loss coverage, and impeccable style all at once. Stop worrying about an irritated scalp and start enjoying the pleasures of the season with a summer hat that will take you from the pool to the street and back again.
Sun Protection for Cancer Patients
While summer hats for women do help to protect against sunburn and age spots, the benefits go far deeper, especially for cancer patients who have increased skin sensitivity due to chemo and radiation. Redness, itchiness, dryness, and peeling are all side effects of fighting the good fight, and can be extra uncomfortable when exposed to sunlight. Even if you’re not usually someone who wears hats, when it comes to UV radiation, exceptions must be made. Rest assured that our summer hats for cancer patients- typically made of cotton, bamboo, silk, or straw - are engineered to lay smoothly against the skin with no irritating seams or tags. Our stylish chemo hats for summer make a fabulous addition to any wardrobe - even if you aren’t dealing with hair loss.
Summer Hats with UPF 50+
If you’re planning to spend lots of time adventuring outside in your summer hat, we recommend choosing an option featuring UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor). UPF is a unit applied to clothing that defines the amount of UV radiation able to pass through fabric. At Headcovers, most of our UPF hats are rated at 50+, which means that only 1/50th of ultraviolet rays can pass through, providing you with ample protection against the harmful effects of UV rays. Customers love our Canvas and Braid Cloche Hat with UPF 50+ for its shady brim and easy fit - as one reviewer states, “[it’s] so comfortable I forget I’m wearing it.” Also be sure to check out the Colette Ribbon Hat and Sun Protection Bucket Hat for more UPF 50+ superstars.
