Got Your Covered with Virtuous Creations
I received a question concerning hats, locks, and lint from Miss Jacque'
Comments: I love the site and your hair. Question, I always see loc wearers in crochet or other knit hats how do they protect their hair from the lint that comes from them?
Thank you for compliments and asking such a good question. For crochet/knit and any hat without a lining it best to put a silk/nylon scarf under it. Natural fibers, animal fur, and 'linty' yarns compete with the hair for moisture and oils along with leaving lint in the hair.
I do wear black crochet/knit hats with a tight spun yarn and pattern. Those do not leave as much lint and when they do, it blends in with my hair. Alot of women wear head wraps using non-linting materials. I wear the stretchy dreadlock caps.
I recently purchased a cap from Virtuous Creations and these are very silky and stretchy.
Here are a few other sites that have the stretchy lock head gear.
I personally like the headbands because my hair isn't long enough to fill up the caps just yet.
I hope that answers your question!
The black and white floral print hat is by Virtuous Creations who I have raved about on the yahoo groups LockItUp & Lovinlocs. I figured should grab this one before it was gone! VC also sells lock jewelry, hairbands, and fleece hats with matching scarves.
If all else fails with the lint grab a Sharpie!
