Winter Curls and Hats, Oh No!
 
Winter is here and I've just learned to deal with wet hair. My hair usually doesn't dry until 2pm, if it's up in a bun then it stays wet all day. I've learned to just deal with it. At least it's not voluminous or frizzy that way. Pineappling always gave me way too much shrinkage and an odd curl pattern, neither of which I liked. Diffusing takes me 30 minutes and it also gives me way too much volume and shrinkage. Second day hair is impossible for me. I have long 3b low porosity highlighted hair. I don't like layers because they increase my shrinkage and volume, which I don't like. So I keep my hair long and layer free. Anyway, since I've just learned to deal with having wet hair, my new complaint is that winter is now here. I currently reside in the city and have to walk to train stations to get to work which can be freezing when the wind strikes. If I wear a hat it messes up my hairstyle(buns, half ups, etc... for work). So I've been walking without a hat but I don't think I can tolerate it much more. I had a really painful headache for the entire day recently after the wind hitting my wet hair during my work commute. My ears were throbbing too. Has anyone figured out how to combat this issue?

Maybe try using a hood instead of a hat? If your coat doesn't have a hood, you can buy one of those scarves that can be pulled up into a hood shape. :)
Where I live, it is winter for about 6 months a year, and that's how I deal...the loose shape of the hood keeps in heat and protects my hair from wind, but won't push against - or crush - your hair. Hth!

I *sometimes* sew, and I had thought of buying some curl-friendly fabric and fashioning my own linings for a few winter hats.

If I can get the shape right, I'm thinking maybe just line a hat and tack it in random places.....or something?

Just a suggestion for those who are handy with a needle? I need to go ahead and research online for possible tutorials...

I've always used a sort of fleece/wool headband. They're thick, keep your ears warm, but don't get in the way of your curls.

I'm crocheting a slouchy hat (for maximum curl room) and lining the inside with a matching color satin, if you're into needlecraft/crocheting, then that's an option.

Cool! I crochet, also! Do you mind if I ask where you got the pattern?

I saw an ad on this site that looked basically like a satin or some other curl-friendly lining that you could put inside of your hats.

Sounds like a more-expensive version of your idea ;)

Maybe you can measure your head and just sew a removable lining for all of your hats.
