We feel the same about cleaning and sanitizing ALL headwear for men, women and children, especially as the mercury rises. Neglecting to care for headwear is incredibly damaging to scalp & hair, leading to itchy scalp, hair loss, oiliness, dull and limp hair.
When the scalp sweats, it release toxins and fluids from the pores, which can get stuck in dead skin, chemical buildup and sebum. With headwear, the problems are greatly compounded because it becomes a petri dish for bacteria, fungi, other microbes, dirt, and other cell-damaging gunk. Even after the headwear comes off, the incubation continues and putting it back on is worst than rewearing dirty undergarments.
In addition to regularly exfoliating, cleansing and eliminating microbials from the scalp & hair with our complete nutrition active botanical mask No. 1, we highly advise washing all headwear. Applicable to all men, women and children. If you wouldn’t rewear dirty socks or undergarments, do the same for headwear.
