Head Wraps from Headcovers
Head wraps are the perfect fusion of fashion and function. Women experiencing chemotherapy, alopecia, surgery, or other forms of scalp sensitivity often gravitate towards headwraps because of the simplicity and comfort they provide. If a wig is just a little too heavy and a hat doesn’t seem to suit your style, a head wrap may be the slick, low-maintenance answer you’ve been looking for.
What is a Head Wrap Scarf?
If you’re new to the hair loss world, the idea of a head scarf may seem complicated. Never fear! Our selection of headwraps for women was curated with your convenience in mind. Most of our styles are as easy to put on as a hat. Our Bamboo Slip On Pre Tied Scarves, for example, have the structure of a skullcap and are pre-tied, but appear to be secured with a sophisticated knotting system when worn. Also check out our Easy to Tie Scarf Cap and casual-cool Doo Rags for more easily executed options – no fine motor skills required.
A Guide to Our Favorite Materials
At Headcovers, we’re proud to offer fabrics that have all been vetted for maximum comfort. Nothing in our shop will be scratchy or uncomfortable. However, each textile has different characteristics and benefits to offer.
Bamboo is one of our favorite textiles for cancer head wraps because of its naturally antibacterial properties. It’s a strong, durable fabric that wicks away moisture, drys quickly, and adapts to the body’s temperature. An accessory that act as a buffer towards germs and infections while offering a sleek, shimmering drape? That could have been invented in the Bat Cave.
We also love our cotton head wraps for women for their soft, easy-to-care-for versatility. Cotton is classic for a reason - it’s soft, light, affordable, and delightfully easy to dye. Our cotton cancer scarves come in luscious prints, including vibrant florals and tie dye.
For ultimate elegance, shop our our silk, chiffon, and satin chemo scarves. Head scarves for cancer patients don’t get more luxurious than pure silk, used for thousands of years to make clothes and accessories that feel like butter to wear. While head wraps made of silk may be slightly more work to care for, this textile is great for special occasions - or to simply treat yourself.
How to Style a Head Wrap
Though head wraps for women tend to have a bohemian feel by nature thanks to the flowing trails of ties, they can be easily be integrated into any wardrobe. The key is to choose a style that matches the casual or dressed-up vibe of your outfit. Our Krista Visor Hat is perfect to top off jeans and a t-shirt, while the Solid Chiffon Scarf would be perfect with something a little fancier. Another trick is to pick a color in the pattern of the headscarf and integrate it into your outfit. For example, our Chiffon Printed Head Scarf looks just as great with a white summer dress as it does with a navy blue sweater.
Tips for Adding Volume to Your Head Wrap
Whether you’re hoping to minimize the obvious signs of illness or achieve a flattering proportional fullness, we know that many women are looking to add volume to their cancer head wraps.
