Abbey Caps Are Perfect for Chemo, Baldness & Style

Updated on February 19, 2015

Gazillions of Variations on the Chic Cap for Fashion Are In Vogue Today

I'm a veteran of chemotherapy caused baldness from breast cancer treatment.

If you have chemo baldness or hair loss caused by alopecia or nutritional problems or just plain aging, I can say I've been there too.

That's why I'm so thrilled with this new selection of pre-shaped caps. They are a polished version of a simple knit cap combined with the style and fun of a fashionable turban, or cleverly wrapped and pinned scarf.

I lost all my hair from the chemo cocktails and it grew back rich and full. Then other factors dropped me into a prolonged stage of hair-loss.

Add in the aging factor, and I had plenty of compassion for women who never seem to have a thick head of hair. To prove to you my enthusiasm, I'm posting photographs of me modeling some of my Abbey Caps - that's the brand name - and you can buy from a huge selection of this perky hat right here.

This is my favorite cap to pop on over tousled hair.

It's a deep vibrant red pink with gray and black, with white.

I enjoy each of my hats, but this one bring a touch of fun to a black and white outfit on a gloomy day.

What I Like About The Leopard Cap

I'm careful in my selection of leopard prints, but this one fast became a favorite.

The fabric is lightweight and stretchy. It feels and looks airy, with a tiny touch of metallic thread. It catches a glimmer of light.

The ruffles are subtle expressions of movement and femininity.

Luxurious, flirty

and at times a bit sexy.

a great hat

can change your day

Here's a fun and sporty topper. The stretchy fabric is as contemporary as today. Perfect for a cancer patient.

 

Instant Dramatic Flair

This one is made of a luxurious looking, slightly heavier knit. To me it feels more sophisticated. The black and white pattern is striking. It looks chic with all black clothing, and with white. I like to wear bright red earrings with this hat.

Part of the design is the knit in shiny white threads that outline leaf shapes, giving touches of light here and there, as I move my head. It's a delightful element of visual texture. The print is as contemporary as today!

A Light and Fluffy Version

Now we're looking at my all around favorite. In fact, after I lost mine in the car buying process I bought a duplicate. The fabric is ultra lightweight and ever so stretchy.

Sequins, but not too many, highlight the ruffles. Since it's a gorgeous cream color, it's a neutral that goes with most everything.

Some days I feel so peaceful I want to promote the feeling, and think this easy-on style works perfect. It evokes a smile from me each time I see it in the drawer.

You Can Wear This Too

I love playing with head coverings. Yes, I'm Muslim, so I usually cover my hair, but if I had found these Abbey Caps when I was bald from chemo I'd have worn a different one each day.

Just pick one, and I know you'll want another. A friend wears only solid colors and most of mine are in patterns.

Many More Versions You Might Want

All of these little numbers provide instant pizzazz for a woman who's in a hurry to dress, or whose energy was sapped by illness. No one will never know what lies beneath the gorgeous fabric.

How I Look

It isn't what I do

but how I do it.

It isn't what I say

but how I say it,

and how I look

when I do it and say it
