How to stop a hat from itching forehead
There are a few adjustments you can make to your hat that will ensure it doesn’t itch. The first is to adjust the brim of your hat so that it’s not touching or resting flat on your brow line, this way there won’t be any pressure in one area and cause an irritation like an allergy would. Some hats have ribbon around the brim that you can tie in a knot so it fits over your head without touching the face.
In addition, when you’re wearing a wool hat, there might be some loose strands of yarn on the inside and outside of the hat where they may come into contact with skin. You can prevent this by putting tape or fabric around those areas.

How to stop wool hat from itching?
The most common cause of itching when wearing a new hat is called seborrheic dermatitis.
To prevent the problem, use a light coat of olive oil to ‘waterproof’ the hat for three days. This should help break down any protein residues in the sweat and hair oils that lead to protein allergens. Wear the hat during exercise and after washing it as well, since sweat can irritate an already irritated skin surface. Remember too that any ailment can get worse just because of intense friction from a tight headwear like hats–this includes some scalp conditions or eczema on your forehead or you cheeks–so don’t assume it’s completely caused by your woolen garment! If only really hot weather is causing irritation , you can try using a cooling gel patch.
Also, if the hat is really tight and itchy on your forehead, consider loosening up with an appropriate hair tie or headband to take some of the pressure off that area.
If all else fails, maybe just give in and wear a cap!
