    Default Warm head coverings and Big Buns - What to do?

    I started my LHC journey in March when it was beginning to get warm. It was not too difficult to loose the hair dryer or let my hair air dry. Now that it is starting to get cool again I am feeling concerned about how I am going to keep my head warm this winter. Last winter I wore a knit cap all of the time but now I will be wearing updos and this will mess it all up.

    I have one hooded scarf so I guess that will work and maybe a lighter scarf to wear around my neck inside.

    I can deal with shampooing at night and sleeping in a mircfiber turban maybe?

    I appreciate any suggestions.

    I looked all over for a hooded scarf last year to no avail so I knit my own. I do exactly as you were pndering: hooded scarf with another scarf around my neck if its windy. This works for me when I'm just travelling from one place to another.

    If I'm going to be spending an extended period outside and I really need to keep warm, I'll do a braid of some type and wear a wooly toque.

    I don't think I've ever seen (or heard of) a hooded scarf. Would one of you kind ladies explain (picture maybe?).

    I have this dilemma too - what to do for keeping my head warm. I used a knit cap last year as well, and it doesn't fit well anymore due to the size of my bun.

    I live where it is very cold. I have learned to tie a large silk scarf over my head and also pull a parka hood over that. I can wear just about any updo by doing this. However I admit, winter is a pain.

    I made my own knit cap. My buns fit under it, and also it has floppy ear bits, to keep my ears warm. Not exactly fashionable, but warm. If I need something pretty, Im wearing matching scarves, one around my neck and the other around my head. I have to agree with harpgal, though-winter is not the easiest time of the year, hair-wise.

    Calorimetries and head/ear bands work well in moderately cold weather. My bun is still small enough that a large stretchy knit hat fits over the whole thing. It's a little messy, but it works. (I wear more braids in the winter, which helps.)

    icydove made me a beautiful knit headband last year I wear it rather than a hat or a hood to and from work and it doesn't mess with my updos at all. I don't have a photo of it at the moment, but it's lovely and soft and warm.

    There is also a cap with a bun-hole on Ravelry that I will knit to myself this winter.
