In stock$45.00 – $50.00
Sauna hats, also known as banya hats or felt hats, serve a practical purpose during sauna rounds. They are typically made from natural materials like wool or felt and are designed to be worn on the head while using the sauna and cooling off outside. Sauna hats provide the following benefits:
- Protection from heat: The primary purpose of a sauna hat is to protect the head from the high temperatures experienced in a sauna. Since the head is more sensitive to heat than the rest of the body, wearing a hat helps prevent discomfort, dizziness, or overheating.
- Heat regulation: A sauna hat helps regulate body temperature by insulating the head and reducing heat loss. This allows the rest of the body to heat up more efficiently, promoting a more effective and comfortable sauna experience.
- Hair protection: Wearing a sauna hat can protect your hair from the drying effects of the heat, reducing the risk of damage or breakage. Additionally, it can help your hair from freezing between sauna rounds when cooling down outside. They are especially helpful when practicing a sauna cold plunge routine.
- Hygiene: Using a personal sauna hat can improve hygiene in shared sauna spaces, as it prevents direct contact between your head and the surfaces of the sauna, reducing the spread of germs.
- Cultural tradition: In some cultures, particularly in Russia and Finland, wearing a sauna hat is a traditional practice that has been passed down through generations.
