Hey Naturals! This is a real quick post about the ugly weather many of us are facing. While we are getting snow here almost weekly, some of you are just braving high winds and cold temperatures. No matter what you are facing, winter is here for most of us and we need to get our hair ready and that’s why I am talking to your about natural hair hats and why you need them.
Getting our hair ready means protecting it and there’s no better way then to keep it covered. There are right ways and wrong ways and one of the best right ways is with natural hair hats that have correct linings to keep our strands protected from the elements and our clothing. Originally, this post was called, Making winter hats Natural hair friendly, but I have updated this post to reflect the vast products available in the hat department. Check out our extensive list for the best of the best in natural hair hats that are perfect for this winter.
Natural Hair Hats (Most Popular)
Some of the best hats for black women this fall and winter are from black owned companies and I had to showcase them to you! One of the top is Grace Eleyae. She’s got satin lined hats, beanies and baseball caps that actually work at protecting your hair while being and looking stylish.
The focus is on feeling pretty, warm and protected and they get it right. They often have BOGO sales so check them out to see what they have in store for Black Friday and the Holidays.
There are several brands, especially on Etsy to choose from, like BreezyTee which has this adorable Satin Lined Knit Beanie and many others to choose from.
Satin-lined baseball caps
I love baseball caps, although I rarely wear them, but they can be out of the running for naturals if you don’t get the right ones. Now, they are satin-lined and a few of them take the natural hair game to the next level like this one above by CurlCap. CurlCap not only has them satin-lined, but they have the back out to allow your natural tresses to be free.
Your big hair don’t care attitude is appreciated and welcomed with this CurlCap that has an adjustable strap and satin sweatband! There is a velcro strip under the sweatband that allows you to slide the strap to best accommodate your crown.
If you are on the hunt for a traditional baseball cap with a satin lining, then check out the Satin Lined Denim Dad Hat by KinkyCurlyGlory found in black and in denim. These can be enjoyed all year round but perfect for a casual day this fall and winter.
I never thought I would see the day when we would have satin lined hoodies but here they are! Satin lining to protect your hair all winter long and as much as we all love hoodies, this is a real win!
If you are all about colors, then there is no better place to find a beautiful array of bold colors than from Gentlemane Satin Lined Hoodie which has 11 different colors to choose from. Perfect for gifts this holiday season.
Create your own!
Much of this winter has seen me with a knit hat that I LOVE and a few twists peeking out front. You wouldn’t know it but I’ve got my satin bonnet underneath protecting the rest of my hair! Just a regular ole satin bonnet and for the twists I made sure to add some heavy cream to protect them since they are out front for cuteness. This winter I am LOVING Curls Whipped Cream – heavy curl cream. It has been a wonder product second ONLY to glycerin. It has released me from my bondage to gel since gel was the only product that kept my hair from frizzing.
What I love about the satin bonnet is I can wear whatever hat I feel and just slip a bonnet over my head before I put on a hat. I can still wash them and wear them at night (I have a ton so there are always a few somewhere in the house). They are extremely practical and affordable so stock up and keep that hair pretty.
Now you are set for your winter wear needs that work hard at protecting your hair. From hoodies, to hats to baseball caps, you will stay warm and pretty without harming your hair. This winter, make sure to take your hair to the next level of protection with natural hair hats!
Take care Naturals,
