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…

One of the most famous prints printed on bandanas is the paisley print

 

The paisley design looks like a teardrop with a curve at the top. The design originates in India and was brought to Europe and America in the 18th and 19th century. Most notable were the paisley scarves brought in by the East India Company. However, the design only got its name when it started being mass-produced in the large Scottish textile town of…you got it… Paisley!

 

The paisley print went in and out of fashion for the next couple of decades and made its big comeback in the 1960s in the U.S. In the 1960s multi-cultural looks were the rage and the paisley pattern was back in its full glory. John Lennon or Beatles fame even had one printed on his Rolls Royce!

 

Nowdays, some of the more common items that have the paisley print are handbags, skirts, paisley sunvisors, paisley wallets, ties and of course the bandana! Paisley bandanas can come as squares, triangles, or in their pre-tied bandana head band version.

 

So go ahead – it’s not just for the summer! The paisley print will carry you all through the year with its rich history and classic look!
