This post has been verified by Ali Nowroozi

Are you new to the chemo headwear world? If so, you may be wondering how to pick the right chemo headwear size to fit your head. To reduce the risk of having to send back chemo headwear that just doesn’t fit, read on. We wanted to help by creating a chemo headwear size guide for your convenience.


Chemo Headwear Sizes vs Normal Sizes

First off, what is the difference between chemo headwear sizes and regular sizes? Chemo headwear sizes don’t include hair volume, so the size of your headwear will be smaller. Before buying items of headwear, it is best to be sure of your chemo headwear size. That way, you can buy your favorite styles with confidence.


How to work out your size

Use a tape to measure the circumference of your head including your ears. If you need help, ask your partner, family member, or friend for assistance. It is best to take the measurement a few times just to be sure of its accuracy. If you don’t own a tape measure, a string or ribbon will do just fine. Simply, line it up against a ruler to get your measurements.

How to care for your headwear

To avoid shrinking your headwear in the laundry, follow the washing instructions carefully. These vary depending on the product. At Masumi Headwear, we recommend two different options. Either put your chemo headwear on a gentle wash in the washing machine. Or, the other option is to wash by hand. Also, we suggest air-drying your women’s chemo sports hats. Instructions: use cold water and a gentle fabric softener. Carefully run in the solution. Then, once clean, either put it on a rack dryer or place it onto a towel and allow it to air dry. It will ensure you don’t get any heat damage. Plus, it keeps your hats in the best condition for as long as possible.
