If you’ve read my blog or seen my instagram then you will know I LOVE wigs. I wear them everyday and have a growing collection. However, wigs aren’t for everyone and they aren’t for every occasion. Sometimes, alternative headwear is needed.
Ten times you need Masumi headwear:
- During cooking – you cannot wear synthetic wigs whilst cooking as it will melt the fibres.
- Whilst walking the dogs – I for one, cannot be doing with hair falling in my face whilst I negotiate two dog leads or scoop the poop.
- On windy days – I don’t like wearing tape as it can upset my sensitive scalp and although it is rare (I have only had my wig blown off twice) it is more comfortable to wear something else.
- When you’re ill – when I am feeling run down, every part of me is extra sensitive – including my scalp, so a wig is no-no.
- When you’re having a duvet day – no make-up, no hair, no bra = no worries 🙂
- On holiday – swimming pools can wreak havoc with wigs, going sans wig I risk burning.
- After a tattoo – when I got my tattoo I wasn’t able to wear my wig for about a week so as to avoid smudging, infection etc.
- When it’s cold- babies wear hats to help them retain body heat, you will be amazed how much we lose through our heads, particularly if you don’t have hair.
- When it’s wig wash day – despite an ever growing collection, there are still times when I find myself with nothing to wear as I have washed them all at the same time.
- Just because – because it’s comfy, because it’s colourful, just because!
So why Masumi headwear I hear you cry?
Masumi Headwear of course! Masumi are my favourite collection of turbans, hats and comfortable, silky smooth headwear.
Masumi is designed for women with hair loss, so their products are carefully made, ensuring no pesky seams or stitching on the inside which could irritate your scalp. I’ve had other turbans in the past and found that they are either too big as they are designed for women with hair, or they make your head sweat as they are made from the wrong type of fabric. The worst is when they have itchy seams which can really irritate. The fabrics that Masumi use are gorgeous, silky soft and breathable. I can wear mine all day comfortably.
Their packaging is also super cute so if you have a friend or loved one with hair loss/cancer these are perfect for adding some colour and cheer to their day.
Meet Masumi Yanna
I started my collection with the Yanna in Black Linea. I was about to get my tattoo and decided I had best get something I could wear at work whilst it healed. Yanna comes with a scarf and has loops you can put it through to secure it. You can choose from a range of colours and designs, or add your own scarf too which makes it ultra versatile and a wardrobe must have in my book. The two pictures below are both the Masumi Yanna with my own scarves added.
Meet Masumi Primrose
I was lucky enough to be sent the Primrose in Purple from the Silkyline collection. Oh wow! This colour is divine. I adore it! It’s fab for putting a punch of colour into autumn or for donning on holiday by the pool as I am about to do.
I’d definitely recommend Masumi Headwear. They have such a fab collection whatever your tastes and there is a range of scarf tying tutorials on YouTube by their beautiful brand ambassador, Michelle. How she can do it without extreme arm ache is beyond me though – my biceps could not handle the pace and that’s another reason I adore the Primrose. I may have to order another few to match my winter coat and current knitting project!
