Two requests:

1. Do you know where I can get chemo caps with custom phases printed at a reasonable price? (I need warm weather/light material caps. I can't seem to find any printable cycling caps which is what I want. The only place I found charges $60 each!)

2. Give me your snarky cap text suggestions!!!

I am thinking "Hair by Halaven" and "My Hair Regimen is Easier Than Yours" and "You Made Me Pull My Hair Out One Too Many Times".

I want to have a bunch to wear to work. Thanks!

By the way, the word you want in your second snark is Regimen. (No letter T)

Regiment=A military unit

Regimen=A prescribed course of action

“Chemo Hair, Don’t Care”


I looked around the print on demand sites I use, I didn’t see any cycling caps but there’s something called a performance cap that might be similar. I’m sure it can be done for less than $60 even an embroidered logo could be less than that

I’ll try to get some links for you tomorrow if you haven’t found anything yet
