How To: Dealing With Hat Hair
Wearing a hat is so important especially when spending chunks of time in the sun, being sun safe should always be top of mind. The more layers of protection the better. One of the unfortunate affects of wearing a hat is it can leave you hair flat, frizzy, oily or indented. Here are some tips to help you avoid this and keep your locks perfectly messy.
Hydrate and Condition
One preventative measure you can take it to make sure your hair is healthy and well conditioned. This will help limit dry or dehydrated hair and help prevent the side affects of wearing a hat.
Use a volumising or texturising product in your hair before putting you hat on. This will help make sure your hair isn’t flat or frizzy when you take your hat off. You can also try flipping your hair upside down to shake it out before re-styling it loosely with your fingers. If you then feel you need extra volume or texture then add in more product.
If you have access to a hair dryer then put on a low heat setting and loosen up the hair and add some volume without adding heat, mainly to the roots and top section of the hair.
If you find even though the top of your hair is a little flat and oily from wearing the hat but your ends are frizzy then add a few drops of oil to your hands and slightly scrunch though the ends. The contrast from flat to frizzy can accentuate the look so it’s a good idea to deal with both problems.
Avoid hats that are made out of synthetic material, cotton hats are best. Cotton is also a great material to pop in the wash to make sure you hat is clean and has no excess oils from previous use.
