I am always cold so like the idea of putting this around my neck and face when needed but after 1 week the material is getting a bit matted. It's not looking bad yet but it feels funky on my skin. I'd imagine it would be fine on your head. I do like it but wish the material was less lycra feeling and more cotton - however, this may last longer as cotton would be likely to lose its elasticity. Going to keep using and may order another - for the price I think it was a good buy.
