The White Lotus Silk beanie has been designed to assist those suffering from thinning hair, dry scalp, scalp irritation, excessive sweating and odour. It is an ideal silk hat for men but can also assist women with similar conditions as well as reducing frizzy hair and the need for expensive frizzy hair treatments. The friction free lining also helps prevent hat hair! Silk was traditionally used in pillow cases in China to reduce hair being pulled out over night – Many who suffer thinning hair and sleep on cotton pillowcases may be used to waking up with hair on the pillow! Those with thinning hair may also have noticed loose hairs starting to collect in hats. This is what the silk hats can prevent. Silk not only stops hair being pulled out it can strengthen hair. Neither cotton or satin hats can achieve this. Silk forms a natural moisture barrier. It has been shown that this barrier reduces the formation of wrinkles in comparison to cotton (3). Silk clothing is widely used in hiking gear due to this moisture barrier. Silk is a breathable fabric so silk beanies can reduce sweating as well as reducing the bacteria and fungus that cause odours. The White Lotus Silk lined beanie is made from the finest thick 19 mome silks and 100% cotton. This provides increased durability and strength. It is available in several colours. It is logo free so it looks like any other quality hat for those who prefer discretion. 1. Voegeli R, Meier J and Blust R. Sericin silk protein: unique structure and properties.
