Bamboo headwear for using during chemo -
I was wondering if anyone had used the bamboo hats during chemo when hair loss has occurred?
When I was going through chemo, my choices were bobble hats, scarves or a wig. I didn't fancy a wig, as my daughter was too upset for that, it made it too real for her, so I bought lots of hats and scarves. However I did end up often in the situation where my head was either too hot or too cold and nothing in between. Finding the right sort of material hat was difficult.
Of course my chemo had finished before I found out about the bamboo hats, but when I saw them I thought they looked great to be honest. The material is meant to be very soft and breathable. I wished I had known about them before.
I think they are meant to be great for sensitive skin and scalps, which sounds amazing, especially as the scalp can be very tender during and after hair loss.
I know several people on here are at the start of their chemo journey's, and hair loss is imminent and/or very likely, so was thinking if anyone could recommend them as an alternative hat option?
Has anyone tried them?
What do you think of them? Are some better than others?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
