These headnets can be worn straight over your head, or over a hat (as shown here) to protect your head from microwave exposure. Many people find that wearing the headnet at night improves their quality of sleep dramatically, reducing the number of times they wake during the night.
Do not use shampoos or other hair products containing lauryl sulphate during the time you are using the headnet. The sulphur residues in your hair reduce the screening properties of the headnet and will discolour it. To clean the headnet, wipe down with a damp cloth (do not use any washing product, as using the wrong sort can completely break down the shielding) and line dry it outside to air it.
