The importance of wearing a sun hat

hat-lacebow-cream-modelEver stop and wonder why all the urgent talk about wearing a sunhat? We know that too much exposure to the sun can cause a sunburn. But not only is a sunburn extremely painful, the cells and blood vessels in our skin get damaged when exposed to too much sun. When exposed to more sun, the skin undergoes premature aging by looking dry, wrinkled and discolored and although the skin may appear to be thicker and leather like, in reality it is actually weaker and will bruise more easily.

 

As you are well aware, the most serious threat of those sunny rays of sunshine is Skin Cancer which is one of the most common cancers today. Doctors believe that most skin cancers can be avoided by preventing sun damage. Putting on sun tan lotion is great, however, there are often parts of the body which are forgotten when applying sunscreen. Most people just smear it on their face, body, arms and legs forgetting behind their ears, their scalp (can’t get lotion in there if have hair) and the back of their neck. Wearing the proper sun hat ensures you that your skin is well protected at all times.

 

But what about the positive sides of sunshine? Vitamin D is an important nutrient that your body obtains through the sun, as Vitamin D is not found naturally in most foods. Rest assured, because most foods today are fortified with Vitamin D so sunlight is not as important or necessary as it used to be.

Of course, the sun makes us all in a cheery mood and lifts our spirits which is why it is definitely recommended to spend time in the sun – just remember to keep safe and protected with sun screen and a sun hat at all times.

 

So now you know all about the importance of wearing a sun hat. Pull that wide brimmed straw hat around your head and smile at the sun! You’re protected!

It’s so important to keep your head protected from the sun

pretied visor capSummer is heating up. If you have a sensitive scalp, now is the time to start preparing for the hot rays of summer sun that can be brutal to a sensitive skin. You’ll need to keep covered all summer whenever you go out – but not to fear, there is such a variety of head coverings available for the summer that you will never get bored.

Sun hats come in lots of fun styles. Wide brim will give you the best coverage for your face and neck as well, but they can feel a little bulky and block your range of vision.

I love pretied headscarves for their ease of use all year, and come summer, this prettied headscarf with the sun visor makes a great all around headcover! It is made of soft cotton that feels great. And with lots of colors to choose from, you can always look put together. Its great for gardening, biking and enjoying all your regular outside activities.

Caps are another obvious choice which protect your scalp and face. The lighter color the cap, the cooler you will feel. Also be sure to look for natural fabrics such as cotton, viscose, linen, and straw for maximum breathability.

Have fun this summer and keep protected when you go out. There is nothing more important than keeping healthy…

Cover Your Head with Comfort and Style!

Always wished to wear a beautiful hat but not enough coverage for you? Try adding an Israeli tichel!

Here’s how, first you need to choose a tichel that you would like to wear.  Best to use a soft cotton one for added comfort. Then, tie it how you’d wear it.

Next, put the hat you want to wear on top of the headscarf and you are simply transformed into a new look.

You can use different tichels and different hats for all types of occasions and to match assorted outfits, the beach, party or every day!

Look great. Feel great. You are great!

Many women find berets extremely comfortable for winter. In addition to being a stylish headcover, slouchy berets can keep your warm. And if it gets really cold, you can pull the beret over your ears and stay nice and toasty!

 

For those of you who wear a pretied headscarf, a velour pretied bandana is a great option for the colder weather. The soft fabric looks great and this is an ideal headcover for indoors and out.

 

So no matter if you chose a pretied bandanna, a thicker headscarf,  a warm hat or knit beret, keeping your head covered will definitely keep you warm!

The Cocktail Hat – What is it Exactly?

cocktailhatFor those of you who do not know what a cocktail hat is – it’s a small brimless dress hat that is worn simply for style since this hat does not provide Hair Coverage at all. The base of the hat can be found in a few variations such as a tear drop shape which allows it to sit comfortably on ones head or a flat base. They usually have flowers, feathers and such other designs and embellishments which makes it dressy and fashionable. In addition, some come with a net hanging over which droops down over ones face to provide an extra special look.

How did the Cocktail Hat come about?

In the 1930’s women took great interest in wearing daytime hats. However, these weekday hats did not suit their needs when they were looking to go to fancy affairs such as cocktail parties, tea dances, etc. Therefore, the designers of the time came out with the cocktail hat which is more appropriate for dress of higher class. Today, Cocktail Hats are worn by women all over, especially by Royalty. It makes a great fascinator and hair accessory for a Wig and Hair on a special occasion. Cocktail hats can be found in white worn by a bride as well as in all different colors for any special occasion. Some have tall embellishments for those looking to provide height and some are small and flat.

So if you’re looking for an extra little something to dress up your outfit you know exactly what you need! Just remember, if you are looking for a Dress Hat to provide head coverage you should try and stick to a cloche or other kind of Hat.

Make sure you and your kids are fully protected by the sun.

Thinking of doing some awesome sports this summer such as hiking and biking? Plan ahead and make sure to take along head coverings and accessories to ensure you and your kids will be as comfortable as possible. Of course, when purchasing head covers and hair accessories for outdoor sports there are lots of things to look out for. Below is a guide and more information you’ll need to know before getting the perfect hair accessories for your trip.

–          When spending time in the sun it is very important to make sure that your face and your children’s faces are fully protected by the sun. Look for a lightweight head covering with a visor such as a Sun Cap, Pre-tied head scarf with a visor or simply a Sun Visor that has a Velcro in the back of your head and keep safe at all times.

–          Do you have any sort of front bang? Having hair in your face on a hot summer day can be really uncomfortable and make you feel really hot so you definitely don’t want to forget some bobby pins. Bobby pins are one of the most ideal ways to keep your bangs up when they are in your face. In addition, another great option is a head band or soft wide head wrap. These hair accessories will definitely keep you cool and stylish on your outings

–          Being outdoors, especially when the sun is strong, makes you feel really hot and uncomfortable? Opt for keeping your hair up with strong and durable pony holders. Looking for something funky and summery? Try wearing a Scrunchie pony holder which will keep you cool and prevent pony marks

–          Prefer wearing your hair down? Keep a Jaw clip in your back pocket for emergencies. A jaw clip will allow you to leave your hair down yet still have some hair up which will keep less hair off your neck and keep you cool.

–          We all know how knotty hair can get when doing summer sports. Don’t forget your pocket brush with a mirror so you can keep on making sure you look great anytime and anywhere!

Once you have your hair accessories and head covers packed and ready for your trip you are good to go! So have fun, keep cool and look good this summer no matter where you are and what it is you are doing!
