Independent research conducted for ABurnet at The University of Bolton, England found that:
- Hairs are often pushed up through head coverings due to the mechanical forces applied when fidgeting with head coverings such as when adjusting them or scratching the head. This fidgeting increases in frequency when wearers are uncomfortable eg: when hot
- Shorts hairs, with their tendency to stand upright, often appear through head coverings more commonly
- Therefore all hair, both short and long need to be folded over to lie flat against the head. This reduces the incidents of hairs poking through fabrics
- Hairs will poke through all fabric structures due to the inherent needle gaps in woven and knitted structures. However, it has been proven that this is more likely in nonwoven spun fibre fabrics such as those used in mob caps. This is because the fibres are randomly spun with no precise control possible.
- Two layers, where the inner layer expands and contracts greatly to hold the hair flat, whatever the head size, shape and hair style, combined with an outer layer to grip and hold any protruding hairs are 10 times more effective than using 1 single layer.
The unique patent pending design of HairTite is constantly working to hold the head of hair and hold hairs flat to contain hair styles of all lengths.
