If it's the first time you buy a chemo hat or alopecia headwear. Please measure your head before you order, do it as follows:
Use a measuring tape to measure the circumference. If you don't have one, use a string to determine the circumference and then take the length of the string with a ruler. Take the size at the largest part of your head, from the back to directly above the eyebrows. If you are taking measurements before you'll lose your hair consider that your head circumference will be a bit smaller once your hair is gone.
Do you prefer to wear a hat over the top of your ears (looks often nicer), then also measure over the ears to get the right size. That means a bit lower, than shown on the picture.
