Best Chemo Hats for Winter

This post has been verified by Ali Nowroozi

Unfortunately, all but 1% of people undergoing chemo will lose their hair. So, unless part of that slim minority, most patients find ways to cover their scalp. In fact, a popular choice is headwear. We will briefly delve into why:


The truth is that chemo headwear offers many benefits. For starters, it is a cheaper alternative to wigs. Plus, it requires less styling and doesn’t irritate the scalp. Also, it protects the scalp in hot and cold weather. Fortunately, most people’s hair grows back 3 months after they complete chemo. So, headwear is also useful during that in-between stage while waiting for hair to regrow. Many women find that elegant headwear is also a way for them to regain their former confidence. It expresses a person’s unique style. Also, it is fun combining and coordinating headwear with a range of outfits. The right tones will flatter and highlight facial features such as eye color.


We will guide you through a range of the best warm hats for chemo patients. That way, you can be fully prepared for the cold, wind, sleet, and snow.


The Best Chemo Hats to wear for Winter


Without hair as a natural insulator, it is important to wear winter hats for chemo patients. This applies during the colder months of the year. Ladies with hair loss find it particularly hard to keep warm during this period. Hence, warm winter hats for chemo patients effectively combat the temperature change. The best winter chemo hats for women will insulate, keep you cozy and be comfortable. One of the side effects of chemotherapy is having a sensitive and itchy scalp. So, chemo hats free of interior stitching are best for the scalp. Also, natural fibers such as cotton and bamboo. Another aspect to bear in mind is how you would like to care for your winter chemo hat. For instance, would you prefer washing it in the washing machine or handwashing? Some hats are fine to dry in the tumble dryer, whereas others should be air-dried.
