10 Reasons why a Silk & Lawn turban can help cancer patients during one of the most challenging times in their lives

Turbans can play a significant role in boosting the self-esteem and confidence of cancer patients who are experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy or other treatments. Silk turbans are often recommended for individuals experiencing hair loss or those with delicate heads and hair due to several beneficial properties. Overall, turbans can serve as a valuable tool for cancer patients in maintaining their sense of self-esteem and confidence during a challenging time in their lives. By providing comfort, style, and practicality, turbans help patients feel more empowered and in control of their appearance, which can have a positive impact on their emotional well-being throughout their cancer journey.
  1. Comfortable Alternative: Turbans offer a comfortable and stylish alternative to wigs for cancer patients who may find wigs too hot, itchy, or uncomfortable to wear for extended periods. Turbans are often made from soft, breathable fabrics that are gentle on the scalp, providing relief for individuals undergoing treatment.

  2. Fashionable Options: Silk & Lawn turbans come in a variety of styles, colours, and patterns, allowing cancer patients to express their personal style and individuality. Having fashionable options can help patients feel more in control of their appearance during a time when they may feel like they have little control over their sense of self and appearance due to the side effects of treatment.

  3. Confidence Booster: Wearing a turban can help patients feel more confident and empowered, even when they're experiencing hair loss. Turbans can enhance self-image and self-esteem by allowing patients to feel comfortable, protected and giving them agency over their style and physical appearance.

  4. Social Acceptance: Since the 1920s every era has taken on a turban of its time  - Not just vintage vibes - Turbans have become part of the a la mode wardrobe and a regular fashion accessory, making it easier for cancer patients to wear them in public without feeling self-conscious. 

  5. Practicality: Our readymade turbans are easy to put on and require minimal maintenance compared to wigs, making them a practical choice for cancer patients who may be dealing with fatigue or other treatment-related side effects. Patients can quickly and effortlessly put on a turban and go about their day with confidence and ease.

  6. Gentle on the Scalp: Both Tana Lawn cotton & pure silk are known for their soft and smooth texture, which can be soothing for sensitive scalps. Unlike rougher fabrics, high grade Tana lawn cotton and silk reduces friction against the scalp, minimising irritation and discomfort.

  7. Moisture Retention: Silk has natural moisture-wicking properties, helping to retain moisture in both the hair and scalp. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with dry or damaged hair, as it helps prevent further dehydration.

  8. Hair Protection: Silk turbans provide a protective barrier between the hair and external elements, such as harsh weather conditions or abrasive surfaces. This can help prevent further damage to fragile hair strands.

  9. Hair Repair: While silk turbans themselves may not directly repair damaged hair, they can contribute to overall hair health and regrowth by minimising breakage and preserving moisture. This, in turn, can support the hair's natural repair processes and promote healthier growth over time.

  10. Temperature Regulation: Silk is a breathable fabric that helps regulate temperature, keeping the scalp cool in hot weather and warm in colder conditions. Maintaining a stable scalp temperature is important for overall scalp health and can help prevent issues like excessive sweating or dryness.

Our turbans are soft, stylish and unique and can be worn on their own, as an alternative to or in combination with a wig, during illness, through treatment and into wellness.

Our mission is fashion with purpose and to bring a little bit of joy during a really tough time.

Our turbans can be worn by day to give coverage and confidence, and by night for comfort and warmth whilst sleeping.
