My favorite hip chemo head scarf / head cover

When I first started my desperate search for head covers I ended up buying and returning a lot of products!  I finally ended up discovering my favorite - the Beau-Beau headcover.  It's like a scarf and hat in one.  The Beau Beau looks like a scarf when on, and for all intents and purposes it is, but it is pre-formed and gathered at the nape of the neck with elastic.  It has tails that hang below the elasticized part and it comes with a matching scrunchie.  Okay, I know what you're thinking - HOW IS A SCRUNCHIE HIP?!  Well, it just is!  Not enough for you?  Okay, okay, well the scrunchie really allows a variety of styling options.  I prefered not to have the hanging tails, so I wrapped them around the already attached scrunchie and it formed a sort of "bun" (like in the picture below) - a pretty hip, sophisticated look, I thought!

These come in 4 different sizes and tons of different fabric designs, from solids to fun animal patterns.  They are lined with a soft cotton to prevent slipage and it also acts as a wicking layer.  This is truly the most comfortable thing that I ever did put on my bald head!

Check out all the Beau-Beau styles.  This website offers other products such as headwarmers, sleep caps, headcovers for exercising, and even transitionals for when your hair starts to grow back.

  1. We have both found solace in the beaubeau! I love them as well! My favorite is timeless elegance blue, it was my first one, and ever since then I can't stop buying them! Now I have seven, and a good thing too, the terrible caps and turbans and ugly wigs the ACS pushed on me were just so NOT my style. So glad I found your post!
