Chemo Head Wrap Instructions | Battling Bertha 12 | #blogboost

When I lost my hair, I went to YouTube and searched for a great tutorial on how to wrap a head scarf. I watched many and found that Ester Grabow’s “How to tie a headscarf tips” is by far the best.

Yesterday I alluded to my secret head scarf technique. It’s not really a secret. It’s a t-shirt. It’s very hot in Texas and the t-shirt head wrap I learned from Ester has been my go to look for the past several months. The t-shirt soaks up the sweat! Plus, it’s easy. Take a t-shirt, cut it across the body just below the sleeves and voila! You have a chemo head wrap.

Watch the tutorial to see how Ester inspired me:
