The idea of the After-Bath Hat came when, after washing my baby daughter, her hair would still be damp after towelling. On cooler nights I wanted to keep her head warm yet needed her hair to continue drying while I put her in pyjamas. I couldn't put her in her regular cotton hats; they weren't absorbent enough and they weren't designed for wet hair. So I'd wrap her hair in a cloth diaper, turban style (see picture, left), the same way I wrap my own hair after washing. Of course, it didn't last 5 minutes on her head, and her damp hair would be exposed to the cold again.
And so the After-Bath Hat was born - it's absorbent, stays on, and baby only needs to wear for about half an hour after his bath to comfortably wick away moisture while keeping his head warm. Great for after swimming, too!
A warm and absorbent terry hat to finish drying baby's hair. For use for 1/2 hour after baby's bath.

Why choose bamboo? It's more absorbent than cotton.
It possesses a property called bamboo kun, that makes it naturally anti-bacterial.
Its cashmere-like softness is great for babies.
Its porous fibres comfortably wicks moisture away from skin.
It's hypoallergenic - suitable for newborn's sensitive skin.
It's easy to care for - machine wash and tumble dry.
It grows easily without pesticides or fertilizers.
It takes in five times the volume of greenhouse gasses as an equivalent stand of timber trees and releases 35% more oxygen.
It needs no replanting, and its roots retain water in the watershed, sustaining riverbanks and reducing water pollution.
Bamboo fabric uses moso bamboo (phyllostachys pubescen), which is not the species eaten by pandas
