4 TIPS FOR COMBATING HAT HAIR

Summertime is approaching, the days are getting longer, and you can finally dig out of hibernation. Nothing sounds more tempting than putting on your favorite hat for weekend errands, slosh ball in the park, or dusting off the motorcycle helmet and riding to work, so what’re you waiting for?

Hats not only protect your head and face from the sun, but they can also add that finishing touch to your outfit. Hats and summer are like guitars and picks or Ferraris and the Autobahn; they just go together. Hats can be great until you realize you have dinner plans with your significant other’s parents in an hour! Don’t fret. We’re here to make sure you stay looking sharp once the hat is off.

1. PUT YOUR HAT ON WHEN YOUR HAIR IS 100% DRY

Are you ready for your Bill Nye the Science Guy moment? Hair is built of Keratin consisting of ionic bonds, hydrogen bonds, and disulfide bonds. Water can break down the first two bonds making the hair more flexible and softer. As the hair starts to dry the ionic and hydrogen bonds harden retaining its shape until getting wet again.  This means, if your hair is wet when you put a hat on it will dry the way it was smashed, smooshed, and crammed in there. Bust out that blow dryer and make sure your hair is dried into the general style you wear it.

4. ABANDON SHIP

If all else fails you might have to abandon ship. Sometimes life becomes too much and the easiest solution is to wipe the slate clean... Dunk your head in water and start over!
