Default curl friendly ways to keep you head warm in winter?

it's the one thing that makes me envious of girls with straight hair - they get to wear hats during winter in all shapes and sizes.

what are curl friendly and fashionable ways to keep you head warm and covered during the winter?

i sometimes do a loose hood/scarf. i've been thinking of those bands that just cover your ears.

I've resorted to wearing a head band that at least covers my ears. I have never found a hat that I could wear that wouldn't give me BAD hair.
I WISH I could find one!

I do scarves and bands. I find the bands to be easiest. I have a cute leopard print one!

But likewise with the hats. I only wear one if I'm going to be in the city and walking around in really cold weather. It's a nice velvet cloche type hat that I get lots of compliments on. It squishes my head, but keeps it warm. It's silk-like (I don't think it's really silk - prolly like poly) lined, so it doesn't damage the curls too much.

I actually knit myself a hat that came out too big, but it doesn't squash my curls that bad. I call it my curly hat. It's kind of silly looking though, but it fits with my personality so I just go with it. :^)

It has to be REALLY cold for me to resort to wearing a hat. A loose hood works OK to keep snow off, but when I need real warmth, I use a silky-lined faux-fur hat, and I PLOP my hair into it. It comes out pretty well

Knit hats are the kiss of death to my hair....frizzy and flat. Ear bands or muffs give me dents.

I love my roll-brim fleece hat, lined with satin. It sometimes improves my hair by holding down 3B humidity expansion in rain. There's a picture of it in my album. I'm looking like a total dork, with the bottom of my hair actually frozen during the last big storm. In the close up of the pix you can see the ice hanging like cobwebs in my hair.

i wrap a silk scarf round my head, gypsy style, then put on a wool hat. you know the ones with the peak at the front and are kinda big and baggy on top? they're hugely in fashion right now but they work well. they cling round my ears but dont cling to my head, so that combination with the silk scarf works well. even if it gives me a little frizz or flat hair it's better than the frizz i get from the constant gail force winds and hail that have been haunting glasgow for the past two weeks - seriously it makes me look like the bride of frankenstein after being outside for 5 mins.

I wear a knitted beret. It's loose on top so it doesn't squash my curls.

That sounds really cute ( the silk scarf/hat trick, not the bride of frankenstein hair ). I saw a few girls doing that look over the freezing cold weekend but with the cabbie hats, rather than the newsboy caps. I should try that one weekend...I have a scarf and several of those caps at home.

I'm going to buy a soft beret. It's just too cold and most of my hats are fitted. So there's no way I could wear them when my hair is down and looking great. LOL.

Hoods.

I have some hats which look great and keep me warm, but they almost all crush my hair, so I don't wear them as often as I'd really like to. But hoods? Love them. Warm but not hair-crushing. This is not a bad thing!

My favorite new one, earmuffs. They look fashionable and keep the ears warm, the important part of your head.... long curly hair usually will help you. I also think a nice satin-like scarf would be curly friendly and oh-so-Hollywood. I live in Wisconsin, usually it is freezing here.

Other than major hathead, that is what I have come up with. Also you can buy a hat that is really large or has a nice smooth lining, less friction. Good luck everyone.

I get silk scarves from tenderheaded.com. What's nice about them is they are silky, but not so slippery that I can't get them tied. I like the bandana ones, but they come in solids also.

I wear a loose engineer/page boy-type cap that doesn't squish my hair. ~~jax

what are curl friendly and fashionable ways to keep your head warm and covered during the winter?

***************************************

I live in the Chicago area. Not only is it freezing it is windy. I bought a really nice Anne Klein 3/4 down coat with detachable hood. It's not boxy and has a very contoured shape with really fashionable detailing. .Down is very light weight and it does not flatten my hair.

Wow, everyone here has such great ideas for curly heads and keeping warm. Wow, I am taking notes because I want to try so many of these looks. Thanks so much. I want to try the tenderhead scarves as well. I also found a great site once where they sold handmade Italian scarves. I will try to find it again and post it. Good luck everyone.
