H&H Headwear

Frizz, split ends, hair breakage ... they’re all a result of hair dryness. Traditional hats can strip hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and susceptible to breakage. This is where satin comes to the rescue. Its low absorbency helps preserve moisture in hair. H&H Headwear's satin lined hats allow you to enjoy wearing hats without any worry about unnecessary dryness.
