How to Find the Best Scrub Cap For Yourself?

The scrub cap has come a long way. They started as a modest clothing article and now come in a fun range of colors, fabrics, and styles. 

Originally, Monks and nuns who worked in healthcare facilities wore the first scrub caps. This accessory was for modesty, as showing their hair was considered shameful. 

Now, the scrub cap has become part of a specific medical "look".

Physicians and nurses have come to appreciate the functionality of this item. After all, it works to keep hair in place, maintain sterile working conditions and keep germs from being passed back and forth between patients and medical professionals.  

 Scrub Cap Styles and Options

Scrub caps aren’t one-size-fits-all (or one-style-fits-all). This guide will help you determine which style is best for you.

If your hair gets damaged easily, you may want to consider a satin-lined scrub hat to protect your hair from frizz & breakage. Satin helps to retain moisture and won't dry out your hair after a long shift.
