Beanie Hats

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know of a place online I can find a black beanie hat to purchase that is made for extremely sensitive skin?  I am required to wear one for my job as a camp caterer but I can't wear the one they have supplied me with as I have never been able to wear anything that touches my forehead because that area get easily irritated, sore, itchy, etc.  naturally by employers believe i am just making it up so that I can just wear a ball cap but that is not the case and I am having a hell of a time finding one that is suitable.

Get a box of self-adhesive moleskin.  It comes in different thicknesses - I used the thin stuff as it bends easier but if you need you can get the thick stuff.

 

Cut a strip and then place it on the front of your head wear so that the soft fuzzy part is touching your forehead.

 

It will get sweaty and eventually greasy - just peel it off and replace.

 

Saves a lot time and tears.

(its cheap if you get it at a sports medicine supply place - at the drugstore it's expensive)

 

It also comes in handy if you happen to work at a place where you have to hustle up and down stairs often and get a blister.  It also can be cut to cover around burns etc. so you don't keep bumping them.  It's great for a lot of stuff.

 

Hell everyone should have some in their knife roll!

Its a good suggestion but if it doesn't sound absorbent and that would be a problem for my ultra sensitive skin.  Does anyone know of anywhere online I could purchase hypoallergenic or for sensitive skin beanie hats?

It's the finest grain of felt available  - but has an adhesive backing...

 

No beanie of any fabric will absorb moisture beyond it, maybe if the ultimate moisture absorbing is what you require you could use a maxi-pad under the rim of the beanie.

 

Anyway good luck.
