During the winter months I like to sport a hat. In fact, all year round I like to don a bit of headwear to either protect my bonce from the arctic temperatures or the heat of the sun. I’m still wearing last year’s grey felt trilby from H&M but I’ve also included a little selection below of some of my favourite head gear from the high street.
It’s all well and good attempting to look stylish while wearing a hat but it can be a flipping nightmare when said attire is removed. I used to take mine off and be met with a fringe plastered to my head and a distinct lack of bounce.
Now I’ve always been a big fan of dry shampoo – In fact I don’t just apply it when my locks need a wash, I also use it as a bit of a volumiser for freshly washed hair too. However when I was heading off on a weekend break recently I didn’t want to be carting about aerosols in my bag so instead I packed my Batiste XXL Plumping Powder. It’s less than a fiver for a small drum of powder which you sprinkle lightly into your roots to get a volumising lift and a bit of texture – perfect for avoiding the dreaded hat hair. I just add a light dusting to my tresses after I remove my hat.
The only problemo is when you come to rinse out as the formula is almost water resistant thanks to its moisture sapping qualities. I find a couple of rounds of shampoo are necessary to get a good lather on to remove the residue.
Any other tips for hat hair?
