Don’t let it go to your head

One of the dangers of being out in strong sunshine applies to both naturists and textiles alike. And that’s getting too much sun on the top of your head, leading to sunstroke or heatstroke. Remember: we’re often lathering ourselves in sun cream, naturist or textile, but we don’t apply any to our heads, do we? Therefore it goes unprotected, and thus we are in danger of getting more sun, on the tops of our heads, than is good for us.

Of course, heatstroke isn’t solely the result of an uncovered head, it can still occur with a head covered, but it certainly makes sense to keep your head covered if and where you can.

If you plan being out under the sun in the middle of the day, it’s worth remembering to keep your head covered, as well as reapplying sun cream.

It’s not something we often see in Second Life, of course, but perhaps there’s a place for hats in naturist sims if only to remind us of their importance in naturism, and also to just give an avatar that little unique twist.

Plausible Body has a free (pay what you like) linen hat you might like to grab, and Amiable have a lovely straw hat that Pookes blogged about last July, but which is still available.

Other suitable hats are available on the Marketplace, with a Fedora priced at L$1, a bandana at L$10 and, of course, a beret that we blogged earlier today.

We’d also recommend visiting JFL, a store which specialises in hats. In the photo below, Howie is wearing a rather classy pork pie hat he bought there some time ago (L$150), while Pam is wearing the bandana referenced above on the MP.

The grid is also awash with baseball caps. Many stores will offer a branded baseball cap as a group gift or freebie, but we picked one up on the MP for L$1.
