Silk-lined winter hats have become all the rage, due in part to the increasing number of women and girls alike, opting to wear their natural, textured hair. With this wave of acceptance came an overhaul of hair care tools, methods, and techniques–one being the silk-lined hat, the answer to many who wonder how to brave the cold weather elements during the four/five months of winter (not to mention polar vortex and winter cyclones are now real experiences for the average city dweller). A Godsend to some, if you will; and why is that? These hats offer a sleek head covering that eliminates the excessive hair tugging and splitting experienced with typical winter fabrics such as wool and fleece. Silk furthermore stimulates hydration, providing shinier hair while reducing sebum production which in turn decreases the chance of greasy, weighed down hair. Again, Godsend. Now we can take our silk lined pillowcases and bonnets with us everywhere… albeit in the form of a hat lining! Check out some of our favorite styles below for this winter!
