Default Warm hats that don't ruin your hair?

The weather in Boston is getting serious now and I may have to break down and wear a hat. Has anyone found a great hat that's warm, windproof and gentle on your curls?

Happy New Year!

I found a satin lined at at the Brookstone Outlet in Kittery, ME. Its a little snug but for quick trips outside the satin is very soft and gentile.

Shown on the model, she is wearing the satin on the outside. The hat is reversible, and is MUCH cuter when the satin is worn on the inside and the 'soft' material on the outside. I got mine in white.

Nothing knit, with wool, or has a rough inner-lining. For my hair at least, haha.

I typically wear my satin hair bonnet underneath hats.

I am so glad you asked this....I have been making do with a couple of cute earmuffs, but being able to wear a warm hat would be amazing.

I imagine it would be easy (if you have any sewing skills) to simply but whatever hat you want and then sew in a piece of silk/satin. Maybe even safety pin one?

I wear a (hand)knit slouchy beret made of wool or cashmere, which I plop my hair into. It also works great when my hair is still wet, as it keeps me from getting chilled -- wool generates heat even when wet.

I never put anything on my head - in the winter or any other season. The only thing I MIGHT consider if I had to be outdoors for a long period of time is something like this:

And I wouldn't be able to put it ON my hair. It would have to be under the back (similar to the picture). ...Hats are a huge issue for me.

I wear a knit hat and haven't noticed any bad results yet… but you can wear a satin scarf/bonnet underneath or line it yourself too.

Default Thanks Curlini

I just bought the hat. I'm in NH and was tubing and my hair was a disaster after it!

Warm hats totally squash my curls and the wind kills them so I end up with ear muffs which look kind of dorky on me. If it's very cold, I give up on curls and set my hair for a wavy/straight look which does fine under hats. My curl pattern just isn't strong enough to revive after being under a hat - no matter what I do. It's a compromise.

Default Hats!

What a great topic! I thought I had it alllllll figured out, but I'm having second thoughts. here's what I did:
I made as well as purchased a bunch of hats in fleece, silk, wool, etc. in the style of those old nightcaps. The kind with the really long tail, that Wee Willie Winkie wore.
here's a photo link: Wee Willie Winkie Costume
I hope that comes up live. I tie my hair up top in a ponytail, then thread the length of my hair down the tail.
There's only two problems with this:
I've since learned, much to my chagrin, that
A.) Ponytails only make your receeding hair line worse, and
B.) Wool, fleece, etc. can be drying to your hair.
Back to the drawing board!!
Oh the silk one I made just slides clean off my head.

I'm not in a cold place but these used to be advertised on NC and look good & warm to me, all satin lined for frizz control. I think that turning upside down and sort of plopping the hair into one of these might actually make better hairstyle when you took it off!

Those are cute! I definitely need a hat in this Chicagoland weather. Might have to buy one. Several of the pill box style are on sale!

Lucky Charm - that's a really cute hat - if it runs snug it might be too much of a curl squasher for me.

Wee Willie Winkie - too funny!

I'm really interested in the Curly Zebra pill box hats - I'm not seeing anything on sale on the website though...I've had fleece hats before and the wind just seems to blow right through them so I'm a little skeptical. Maybe the satin lining helps protect from cold wind too.

Some curls stand up to hats better than others. My curl pattern at the crown is weak to begin with and hats just create a Bozo effect on me. I've had the most luck with ear muffs like the pair RacerWife posted. I usually just race from my car to the office etc. rather than ruin all the hard work I've put into my hair each day!

Stay warm!

Brown with Pink Floral Band

This is the one I have on the way. Several of the pill box hats are marked as discounted from $20 to $15.

I hope it works for me. I'm usually only outside for a few minutes at a time (no recess duty for this teacher, even if it does pay $28 an hour!).

I usually try to wear soft berets or slouchy hats of some sort. I have one that I got from Forever 21 a while ago that is quite thick and warm. It doesn't cause too much frizz. Just feel what it's made out of. It's it's rough to the touch, it will probably frizz you up.

Default Plopping into a hat

How do you guys plop into a hat exactly? Does this mean every time you come and go all day you bend over, and stuff your hair in your hat , bent over? It doesn't look strange to do this every time you walk out of a store, Dr.'s, Post Office, bank, etc.? I want to try it, but I get enough looks in the wintertime just for wearing a "goofy" hat to begin with!
I love hats and will NOT go out (in this weather w/o one).
Thanks! Infinity

To plop my hair into a hat, I do bend over, put the hat underneath my hair, and bring the hat up with the hair in it, then put in on my head. Alternately, if your hair is long enough, you could lean back, catch your hair in the hat, and bring it up until you can put it onto your head.

I don't normally take my hat off when I walk into a bank, or post office, but might if I were going to be in a store a long time, and would if I were going into a doctor's office. Generally, if I'm taking off my coat, that's when I'd take off my hat.
