Here are some of the top benefits that come with wearing headwraps.
They Add A Touch of Elegance to Your Style
Head wraps are made from all kinds of different fabrics, with a variety of colors, patterns, prints, etc. Did you know that head wraps go all the way back in the early 1700’s in many African cultures and represented a woman’s age, marital status, and class? This means that certain styles of headwraps were worn by royalty.
Headwraps are timeless and communicate a sense of style and elegance. Old Hollywood starlets from the 1920s and 1930s wore head wraps often. Modern times are no exception. Adding a headwrap to your wardrobe has a way of making you feel polished and put together in a way that most accessories don’t.
They Have Functional and Practical Purposes
● Weather Protection -
○ In addition to up leveling your fashion game, they have functional reasons to be worn. First, they protect your hair from the elements of the seasons. Versatility in fabric options allow for this to be done easily. In other words, light-weight fabrics can allow your head to breathe in the summer. While heavier fabrics can keep you warm in the winter. Headwraps can also keep your hair protected from the wind, rain, or snow.
● Convenience -
○ They’re quick and effortless. Throwing a headwrap on in the morning makes getting ready less stressful. Even if you only have one or two headwraps, there are so many ways to wear them that you’ll never show up anywhere looking dull or boring.
○ Another reason why headwraps are so convenient, is that you can wear them anywhere. Whether you’re doing yardwork, going to the grocery store, or going out with your friends. It’s so easy to put together and goes well with any type of outfit.
● Hair Health -
○ It is not recommended for people to wash their hair or to use heated styling tools daily. Shampoo can strip your scalp of the natural oils needed to protect your hair, while heat can burn hair and cause damage. However, when you wear a headwrap, even only a few times a week, it helps your hair to stay healthy!
