But why do people wear nightcaps? Why should you buy a sleep cap in the first place? The truth is that people wear them for different reasons.

  1.  Stretchiness

We highly recommend looking out for sleeping caps with this key feature. For one, using a sleep hat with spandex and elastic ensures a comfortable fit. Plus, it won’t apply unnecessary pressure over the ears. Of course, you won’t want a loose or super tight chemo cap. Thus, a stretchy bed hat provides the perfect balance and a secure fit. Additionally, it is a natural insulator and ensures it doesn’t come off at night in your sleep.

  1. Offers a selection of colors

There are many benefits to choosing from a selection of colors. For instance, it facilitates better outfit coordination. Also, you can find colors that highlight your facial features. For example, find the perfect tone to make your eyes pop or flatter your skin tone. Of course, the right color comes down to personal preference. In fact, many ladies choose their two favorite colors and alternate between them. That way, if one is in the laundry, you have a backup option. Also, you can switch tones depending on your mood.
