Lively Gift for a Cancer Patient

Updated on May 27, 2016

Turquoise is my most popular chemo cap for women with baldness. What could look fresher and friendlier!

Cancer does a number on us and can whip away our self confidence in the way we look.

Alopecia thins hair until the scalp

shows and it's a challenge to know how to manage with this lifelong condition. Abbey Caps can change so much about how we feel when we go out.

Abbey Caps come in two basic styles:

  1. layered with rows of lightly ruffled fabric over the whole cap
  2. single layer of slightly heavier fabric

Both styles have a hidden elastic

band that prevents the hat from slipping off a bare scalp. It's covered in matching fabric so it's part of the design.

Choose from two design features

  1. solid colors in either ruffled or single layer caps
  2. print fabrics in large or small designs

Fabrics can be classic for work or frivolous for fun

  1. matte or silken black, white or gray look professional and sleek
  2. cut velvet looks elegant and party ready
  3. nubby fabrics have a casual look that fits with jeans, skirts and sweats - hey, even pj,s
  4. slightly textured stretchy fabrics go from work to an evening out

Contemporary prints are right for women

and teens who just don't want to wrap up in a terry turban. Select several print variations and each one looks distinct from the others, so she'll always feel with it.

Abbey Caps are so lightweight they feel

like a breath of fresh air on the scalp. Easily rinse them out and they dry in no time, protecting a fragile scalp.

The variety of patterns and solid colors is so wide she could wear a different one to work each day for a month.

Vibrant purple looks royal and speaks with authority. The all-over ruffled caps are softly stretchy all over. I spread out my fingers on each hand inside the cap and move my hands out farther and I bring the cap over my head, to put it on. It's so simple, and I'm primed to go out.

Are you also one of those people for whom ruffles bring smiles all round? I'm especially attracted to the many narrow ruffles, each moving on its own, and playing nice with a favored strong color.

Purple can carry the day. For sure it's a knockout in the coffee shop or for a late weekend brunch on the porch.

This is one of my favorites because it has a bit of a bohemian look. And yet it's stunning with a black dress or pants outfit.

I've worn Abbey Caps for years and never get over the ease with which I change from frumpy hair to stretchy turban. Wear the little band of ruffles in the back of the neck, or turn it to the side.

This style goes with casual pants too. Try it with jeans and a sophisticated long tee.

All Abbey Caps are suitable for post chemo wear unless your skin is sensitive to polyester. Chemo irritated my scalp and I was only able to wear cotton on my head for months and I didn't discover these caps until my hair had regrown, but many women happily wear them during periods of hair loss.

 

Do you have in mind a special woman or girl who would like to cover their lack of hair in style?

Abbey caps look so stunning that they're sure to garner compliments - a nice touch for a women sensitive to her health

      @MaryRoseFitz: Yes, some of us are fine with our skull shapes and others (like me) feel like we got squshed long ago and want to keep it under wraps. I'm glad there is such a fine variety of perky head coverings available now.

      I love the purple one! Such smart looking hats for women who are suffering hair loss. I have a cousin who has just completed 2 hideous years of radiation, chemo and several operations involving the removal of tumours. I know her hair loss is a sensitive issue.

      Rather like the cream one with the jewelled look.

      @sousababy: I think it's that little touch of contrast that helps make up for the lack of eyelashes.

      @sousababy: It's funny because that's the one I like the best but I haven't bought it yet.

      I like the two-toned ruffled one - it's flowing, expressive, and feminine.

      I think the ruffles are lovely and I like that white one with the black trim - somehow it's feminine, strong, and expressive all at the same time.
