This post has been verified by Ali Nowroozi

Although it is less common, we must not forget that children are also diagnosed with cancer. That is why at Masumi Headwear, we offer a range of chemo hats just for kids and teens. We are passionate about empowering children with cancer. Also, we understand that it is natural for children to feel self-conscious about hair loss. Thus, we create designs so kids feel able to express themselves. Additionally, we design headwear which is enjoyable for children and teenagers to wear.

In fact, there are many benefits to wearing children’s chemo hats. For example, they insulate the scalp and are comfortable to wear. Naturally, kids going through chemo are particularly vulnerable. So, designs must bear kids with hair loss in mind throughout the entire design process. At Masumi Headwear, we create deep designs that fully cover the scalp. That way, no hair loss is visible.

Below is our Ultimate Guide To Children’s Chemo Hats & Headwear. Using this guide, you will able to shop in confidence. We cover the five most important areas that you should consider when selecting hats for kids with cancer, they are:

  • The right size
  • Comfort is key
  • Colors matter
  • Attractive designs
  • Easiness to put on

The right size

First off, chemo caps for kids must be made to fit a child’s head. In other words, they should be smaller than adult-sized hats. Plus, it is vital to find a size that fits snugly. For instance, so that cold air doesn’t seep up. Also, so they keep insulated. Finally, the right sized hat will stay put and won’t need constant readjusting. For young users, this is super important as they are generally active and move about often.

Comfort is key

Secondly, of course, comfort is so important in chemo hats in general. But for children’s styles, it is a must. Thus, at Masumi, we use the softest materials. We combine this with double layering techniques to avoid irritating sensitive scalps. Remember to always choose super soft fabrics such as cotton and bamboo. In turn, they will offer the user the utmost comfort. Also, stretchiness is a key perk in hats for kid cancer patients. First of all, it ensures a snug fit. Additionally, it allows the hats to stay in place without slipping and showing bare scalp.

Colors matter

Thirdly, a wide choice of colors is an important feature of hats for children cancer patients. That way, they will appeal to kids. In fact, our Masumi chemo hats for kids offer a variety of colors. Choose from bright to more subtle shades!

Our Masumi Headwear Champion styles come in a wide range of colors. Choose from coral, blue ocean, green forest, navy, sunset, grey, brown, yellow and red.

Attractive designs

Fourthly, attractive designs are so necessary on hats for children with cancer. Because hats for child cancer patients should bring the focus to their designs. Rather than highlighting the hair loss, your child is experiencing. Thus, at Masumi, we offer a variety of children’s chemo hat patterns. In turn, our hats suit a range of tastes. In fact, attractive features adorn the exteriors of this collection. For instance, Alice has a speckled bow. We love this design. It is cute, chic and so soft to wear. Thus, it is very popular amongst child cancer patients.

Alex is a reversible cancer hat for kids. Choose from brown and yellow, or red and grey looks. It is a much loved choice for young boys.

Easiness to put on

Finally, hats for child cancer patients should be easy to put on. This is unlike some adult chemo headwear which requires styling and adjusting.

A huge advantage of our Masumi children’s designs is the “no styling” aspect. Thus, our styles are straight forwards for children to put on themselves. That way, they will feel empowered, independent, and confident to not have to rely on adults.
