Choosing the Best Hats for a Cancer PatientIf you know someone who is about to start chemotherapy for cancer, it is an emotional and difficult time. One way you can show your support and love for them is to choose a hat or hats for them to wear when they have lost most or all of their hair.  Here is a guide to choosing the best hats for a cancer patient.

Before going shopping for hats, consider the style of the person you are buying for.  Also, keep in mind that the person you are buying for will probably be wearing the hat both indoors and outdoors.  This will help you to have a better idea of what color options and types of hats you should be looking for on your shopping trip.

When you arrive at the store, you will likely find all sorts of different hats. Most of them are designed for people with hair to keep their head warm, protect them from the sun, or for a dressy occasion.  The hat that you should be looking for when shopping for a cancer patient needs to be snug fitting and cover the whole head, but should not be overly dressy or a ski hat.

Keep in mind that hats that are lined or made from natural fibers, such as cotton, silk, and linen, will be more comfortable to wear and will not get itchy or sweaty on a head with no hair.  With these tips, you should be able to find a nice hat that will show your love and support for your friend or family member going through chemotherapy.
