Sauna hat: Looks funny, but is helpful

No, definitely not. It is very likely a so-called sauna hat, it was invented specifically for the hot pleasure. In Germany it is still relatively new, but in Finland and Russia it is already well known. That it will not get you a place on the cover of Vogue is clear. We’ll tell you why you should wear this hat anyway.

Protection from extreme temperatures

In winter, be sure to wear a cap or other headgear, because it will protect you from the cold. We humans do this because the head is our weak point. In fact, there is hardly any fatty tissue on its upper side that would insulate. The hair alone is not enough here, everyone quickly notices in cold temperatures. By the way, the same is true in the summer. The good old sun hat not only protects the head from dangerous UV radiation, but also the brain from overheating.

Protection from the winter cold

This is exactly what the sauna hat does for you. It does make you sweat, but it also keeps your organism from overheating. Of course, if you go to the sauna garden in the winter, it will also protect you from the cold. But that’s really just a nice, useful side effect. For us, the most important thing at this point is heat protection, because it’s really quite important.

Ideal for sauna beginners

Indeed, those who wear such a hat protect their circulation and ensure that the load remains within tolerable limits. This is especially good for beginners who don’t really know their limits yet. With the hat, they can sit longer in the sauna without fear of health consequences.

Which hat is the right one

When choosing a sauna hat, the material in particular plays an important role. Cotton, for example, would be completely unsuitable. There are also people who try to protect their head with a towel during an infusion. Unfortunately, this misses its mark almost completely. A towel will get soaked with water and sweat, and therefore will become quite hot. Unfortunately, a cotton hat would do the same.

No plastic sauna hats

There are even occasional models made of plastic, but they are completely unsuitable. Under certain circumstances, the plastic would even melt and cause painful burns.

Sauna hats from natural wool felt

Felt has proven to be optimal. The natural material does not absorb moisture, but insulates perfectly. Especially well suited felt made from sheep’s wool. But on the market you can also find models made of rabbit felt. They are a bit more expensive, but particularly thick and dimensionally stable. For people who can not tolerate wool, there are also hats made of linen. They are pretty thin and don’t insulate that well, but are an option.

Even a sauna hat needs some care

But in order not to lose its capabilities, the sauna hat needs a little care. After the relaxing day in the heat, you should air dry it, for example, because it does get a little wet. Once back home, you should machine wash it at low temperature for hygiene. When drying, you should gently pull it back into shape. This works best if you roll it over her knee briefly.

Also when cooling down: Never without a hat

We had already mentioned that the sauna hat will, of course, protect you from the cold. That’s why they should wear it when you cool down outside. This is especially true in the cold season, but does not hurt in the summer – and offers one more additional benefit: The hat ensures that sweat does not drip into your eyes.
