Head scarves are a versatile accessory worn for different reasons. For some people, head scarves add a little bit of color to their outfits. You can also wear it whenever you are having a bad hair day.
This accessory can also be worn when sleeping to protect your hair from friction against your cotton pillowcases, preventing dry hair. Other people wear it to protect their hair from dirt or wind.
Head scarves also have a lot of history and culture attached to them. A lot of women use head scarves to wrap their hair as a religious or cultural symbol.
When choosing the right head scarf, there are a few factors to consider, such as its material, size, shape, and color.
A head scarf's fabric will affect its weight and breathability. You can choose between cotton, polyester, silk, and satin.
Cotton and polyester scarves are soft, breathable, lightweight, and will sit comfortably on your head. These qualities make them excellent for summer or warmer weather. They are durable and easy to maintain as well.
These fabrics are also absorbent and can soak up sweat and hair oils, causing your hair to dry out. To prevent this, some cotton and polyester scarves are lined with fabrics like silk or satin.
If you want your hair to be healthy and hydrated, get a silk or satin head scarf. Silk’s frictionless smooth surface won’t abosrb your hair’s natural moisture and oils, unlike cotton.
Silk head scarves are also very versatile. Due to silk’s natural thermal properties, silk head scarves can keep you cool through summer and warm through winter.
You can choose the scarf's size and shape depending on how you want to style your hair. Square ones are easy to use and usually fit your head well without having excess fabric hanging off.
A square head scarf should be at least be 28 by 28 inches to make sure it fits your head well (or slightly smaller if it's a bandana). We recommend looking for one between 28 to 35 inches, and you can size up or down depending on how big your head is.
You can also go for a rectangular scarf. This is great if you like excess fabric hanging down or if you want a full headwrap or turban.
There are so many ways you can style your head scarf. You can look online for tutorials or come up with your own!
For a simple option, you can tie a head scarf around your ponytail. You can also easily fold your scarf and turn it into a twisted headband.
Your head scarf can also be used as a bandana. Simply fold your scarf diagonally, wrap it around your head, and tie it under your hair. Or, try incorporating your scarf into braids!
If you want to cover your whole head, try the low bun or turban look. This is great if you don’t feel like having your hair out or if you’re having a bad hair day.
Head scarves come in different shapes, sizes, and colors; there's a ton to choose from. To make it easier for you, we've compiled the best ones you can buy online!
