Silk Hair Cap - Silk Lined Hats for Natural Hair
Silk is a natural environmentally sustainable fabric. The smooth weave of silk has been used for thousands of years to prevent hair being torn out and reduce frizzy hair. Research has shown that silk proteins can adhere to the keratin in the hair helping keep hair straight and strong (1).
The White Lotus silk sports caps are stylish and designed to blend in with other natural caps. There is no intrusive branding and nothing to indicate that the hats are in fact silk lined.
Silk is strongly anti bacterial and anti fungal. It can prevent odours from sweat developing in your cap.
Silk is also a smooth fibre unlike cotton so is less likely to irritate skin conditions and inflammation.
Benefits of the White Lotus Silk Cap
- Does not Tear out hair - Silk textiles are very smooth and create virtually no friction. This means thinning hair is not torn out during daily activities. No more hair inside your cap after exercise!
- No more Frizzy Hair - Silk is smooth and does not create the friction that makes your hair stand up. Additionally silk proteins line the hair creating a perceptible film that protects and keeps hair straight.
- No more smell - Silk is anti bacterial and anti fungal. It also naturally resists mold and mildew. This allows it to reduce odours from sweat. This is especially important in sports caps which can be hard to wash.
- Better for skin conditions - Extensive research has shown silk to be useful in managing both dermatitis and eczema (2). The silk lined sports cap may be of benefit to those suffering from skin conditions of the head and scalp. Silk is a smoother fibre than cotton and so less likely to aggravate inflamed skin.
- Discreet - The caps carry no heavy branding and look just like normal sports caps. There is nothing to indicate that the hat is silk lined or any different from anyone elses

Mulberry Hat Silk
The White Lotus caps use only 19 momme mulberry silk in all its caps. This is a strong natural weave designed to demonstrate resilience and strength.
If anyone has ever tried to purchase a silk beanie hat you quickly realise that quality silk does not stretch enough to make the beanie truly wearable. The harder frame of the sports cap is the ideal structure in which to employ fine quality mulberry silk which is a champion hat silk.
Pure Silk Sleep Cap
Many people choose to wear a silk night cap or silk hair cap for sleeping. These give the benefits of silk such as not pulling out hair and no more bed head while you sleep. However the feedback we receive from many of our customers is that they find wearing a hat to bed uncomfortable and inconvenient.
They can be embarrassing and often fall off during the night. The better option for most people is a silk pillowcase. This provides similar benefits but is subtle, sensuous and a point of style in the bedroom.
This can be combined with the silk cap during the day. In this way you can nourish and protect your hair day and night without undue attention.
Silk Hats for Cancer Patients - Silk Chemo Caps
The White Lotus silk lined cap is ideal for patients who are suffering hair loss as a result of cancer treatments. The silk is more gentle and on damaged hair and more supportive during the regrowth stage.
It should be noted that the White Lotus silk sports cap does not cover the entire hair line. Hair loss at the back and sides of the head will still be visible. If complete discretion is your aim then a silk scarf or full wrap around silk chemo hats are a better option.
