It’s summertime, and we’ve all been there: it’s hot, maybe a little humid . . . you’re outside. You might be active or you may just be sitting perfectly still hoping for that puff of a slight breeze. You have a hat on to protect from the sun, but your hair is wet, your hat damp and it’s just gross.
What can you do? There are a few options:
1. Paper Towels (cheap and on hand)
Take a single paper towel, fold it lengthwise and tuck between your hair and your hat. The towel will absorb the sweat, but keep an eye on it. If it gets too wet, paper towels have a tendency to shred themselves and pull apart.
2. Hatliners (high quality, but a slightly higher price)
Headline It! is a specially designed hat liner that soaks up sweat. These thin liners have a self adhesive back and hold up against the elements. One thing to note: these will make your hat fight a little tighter! If you have a style that fits perfectly, these might not work for you. They’ll keep you dry but it might be uncomfortable. They are perfect for a hat that is the slightest bit big (also a great solution for making you hat fit better!).
3. Dri-Lex® Sweatbands
There’s a great selection of hats now using a sweat absorbing band inside the hat. Now, this does mean you’d have to buy a new hat, but you would have no lining or bulky addition to the inside for a great comfortable wearing experience. Try the stylish Bailey of Hollywood Guthrie (right) or the Bailey Ontario Outback!
