Sleeping Caps from Headcovers
Do you ever find yourself counting sheep, or tossing and turning until the wee hours of the morning, instead of drifting off to dreamland? There’s nothing more frustrating than a sleepless night, and poor sleep quality can have a serious impact on your health, particularly if you’re already dealing with the challenges of cancer or chemotherapy.
At Headcovers, we appreciate the importance of restful sleep, especially for patients with cancer who may be undergoing difficult treatments like chemotherapy and radiation. And that’s why we’ve been selling comfy, soothing sleeping caps for nearly 25 years. Although every sleeping cap in our collection is primarily designed to keep your head cozy and help you retain body heat, these nighttime essentials are also fashionable and fun. If you want to make sure you’re staying warm while you’re at rest, need extra protection for a sensitive scalp, or simply want a no-fuss way to improve your hair and skincare routine, a sleep cap might be the ideal solution. With great styles for both men and women, you’ll want to wear these hats all day and all night!
Chemo Sleep Caps for Cancer Patients
If you’ve recently received a cancer diagnosis, you’ve likely done a lot of research on the most common side effects of chemotherapy, such as fatigue, nausea, and hair loss. However, you may not have considered that hair loss itself can have a physical impact on your daily well-being. One unexpected result of hair loss is that you can lose additional body heat through the scalp, especially at night. Feeling chilly can make it tough to get the quality sleep you need to face the challenges of cancer treatment and stay healthy; that’s why a sleeping hat is the first hat we recommend for cancer patients.
Why are our night caps for sleeping so good for cancer patients? Because we’ve designed them to meet the specific needs of those experiencing cancer treatment. Many of our beanie-style sleeping caps are made from 100% cotton for exceptional softness; others are made from bamboo viscose fabrics, which offer a luxurious, silken texture plus unique wicking properties.
No matter the material, every slumber cap is designed for a snuggly soft feel and a secure fit. They’re ideal for cancer patients undergoing chemo and hair loss because they provide full head coverage with extra attention devoted to the fit around the hairline. For added versatility, we offer caps with an adjustable bottom cuff that can be rolled up or down to achieve just the right amount of coverage. Many styles are also designed with a fuller top to create the appearance of hair below the cap for a more flattering fit, which can help you feel like yourself again after hair loss due to cancer, chemo, alopecia, or other medical conditions. Finally, our sleep caps are made without irritating seams, which is especially important because chemotherapy can cause the skin of the scalp to become extra sensitive.
For cancer patients, a night hat is a small yet powerful way to feel more comfortable during hospital stays and chemo treatments. Like your favorite slippers, these comfy caps will quickly become your go-to for more than just napping. With so many great styles to choose from, you’ll likely be wearing your night cap hat for casual outings or relaxing days around the house, too.
Finding the Perfect Sleep Cap
At this point, you may be envisioning an assortment of old fashioned sleeping caps, but the options at Headcovers are surprisingly contemporary and incredibly versatile! Our sleeping caps are available in a wide array of colors, shapes, and materials to suit your personal preferences, your style, and the climate in which you live. No matter the material you choose, our sleeping caps are made from only the softest fabrics; they’re also designed without any irritating seams that might feel bumpy or uncomfortable while you sleep. For a breathable cap that’s great when you need just a little extra warmth, consider an option in cotton or bamboo. If you prefer the feel of a super cozy material, try out our exceptionally warm sleep caps in fleece, wool, or comfy knit blends.
From simple and functional styles that look great for everyday (and every night!) wear to glamorous options with gorgeous embellishments—like embroidery, lace, and bows—we’ve got a cap to suit every personality and occasion. We’ve also curated an assortment of sleep caps for men in a range of understated colors. We even have a few classic “elf” inspired caps that are perfect for a quirky vintage look or a bit of seasonal cheer as the holidays approach.
Even More Reasons to Wear a Sleeping Hat
We’ve already talked about the importance of sleeping caps for cancer patients who need to retain warmth and protect their sensitive scalps at night, but did you know that there are lots of other reasons to invest in these practical pieces? A sleeping cap can have major benefits for your hair and skin.
Benefits of a Sleeping Cap for Hair Protection:
While sleep is great for helping your body feel refreshed and restored, it might not be so good for your hair! You may notice that your hair gets tangled or frizzy at night, especially if you’re prone to tossing and turning. And while elastic bands can help to keep your hair in place and prevent tangles, they’re also a major cause of breakage. A sleep cap keeps your hair from rubbing against the fabric of your pillowcase, which might feel soft to you but is actually rough compared to individual strands of hair. By wearing a sleeping cap, you can prevent excess hair loss, split ends, and frizz. Sleep caps are especially beneficial for preserving the shape and definition of curly hair.
Benefits of a Sleeping Cap for Hair Treatments:
If you like to use overnight hair treatments like leave-in conditioners to prevent or repair damage, a sleeping cap can help to shield your pillows, sheets, and skin from messy products.
Benefits of a Sleeping Cap for Hair Regrowth:
Once you’ve made it through your cancer treatment, you’ll be eager to regrow your hair as quickly as possible—and your trusty sleep cap can help! A sleep cap works to prevent friction between fragile new hairs and your pillowcase, so you can avoid additional hair loss and speed up your return to the look you love.
Benefits of a Sleeping Cap for Skin:
Finally, sleep caps can help to keep your skin looking its best. Wearing a sleep cap prevents the natural oils in your hair from transferring to your pillowcase or the sensitive skin of your face, which means you’ll get to enjoy clearer, less blemish-prone skin. It also means that your pillowcase will stay clean longer, so you can lighten your laundry load!
