This past weekend was really hot. Like not just the hottest days of the year, but the hottest days in many years. I didn’t want to leave my air conditioned house. But I wasn’t going to let the heat intimidate me; I had errands to run, shopping to do. But I knew that it was going to be tough to look fresh. So when I went out, rather than show my humidity-suffering hair to the world, I wore a head scarf.
It was nice because I felt like I wasn’t trying to impress anyone with my do, and I looked good all the same. Head scarfs do a great job of soaking sweat and keeping you cool because they block the sun from hitting you. That’s why people wear headwraps in the desert. I didn’t even wear sunscreen. And I made a fashion statement about dealing with the heat.
It’s interesting that headwraps are so multi-functional. You can just as easily wear them to protect your head from the cold as you can the heat. And they’re great for dealing with your hair when you don’t want to deal with your hair. So the next time it’s a hundred degrees plus, think about a head scarf and your problems will be solved.
