What really is the best hangover cure?

We've all been there - you wake up and your head is pounding, your stomach is churning, and the room is spinning around you. You’re in desperate need of anything that will help you feel better. But what will do the trick?

The Old-School Remedies:

Let's start by exploring some of the oldest alleged hangover cures that have been passed down through generations. While they may have their merits, they often feel more like superstitions or rituals instead of actual remedies.

Greasy Breakfast:

Cook your eggs in bacon fat for a next-level flavor experience

The classic bacon and eggs! While it might provide temporary comfort, a greasy breakfast won't address the root cause of your hangover. Plus, the idea of stuffing yourself when you can barely stomach anything seems counterproductive.

Hair of the Dog:

Some swear by the "hair of the dog" approach, meaning having another drink to alleviate hangover symptoms. Sure, it might offer temporary relief, but it's merely postponing the inevitable crash and extending your misery.

Morning Run:

Listen, I know this one’s probably effective, and you can “sweat out” the booze and all that - but it’s just not happening. The most exercise I want to do when I’m hungover is walking to my front door to grab the McDonald’s breakfast I ordered from UberEats.


“Natural” Remedies:

Now, let's delve into the world of natural hangover remedies that are often recommended by well-meaning friends or found on the internet. While these remedies are scientifically sound, they lack a certain oomph.

We all know hydration is the key to avoiding or at least minimizing a hangover, but mostly as a preventative measure. Did you know it takes about two hours to rehydrate your body after you’ve been dehydrated? So if you wake up hungover, water will help, but not as quickly as you’d like.

Sports Drinks:

Electrolyte-packed sports drinks claim to replenish the minerals and vitamins you lose while drinking. While they can be beneficial in restoring hydration, they don't address the other hangover symptoms like headache and nausea.

Herbal Teas and Supplements:

Certain herbal teas or supplements, such as ginger or milk thistle, are believed to have hangover-relieving properties. While they might offer mild relief, the results are often inconsistent, the taste is pretty funky, and they may not provide the comprehensive solution you're searching for.

The Best Remedy:

We have tried all of the above remedies, and more, and have come to a single conclusion: there is no cure for a hangover. There is no secret formula or special sauce that can instantly undo the damage you did to yourself. But like a lot of these remedies above, there are things that can help you feel better and make your hangover less miserable, none more so than the hangover hat.

Block Out The Blackout:

The hangover hat is like a blackout curtain for your face, and helps you deal with heightened sensitivity to light, and also block out noise around you. If you want to take a hungover nap, it’s like the greatest sleeping mask of all time.

Like An Ice Bath For Your Face:

After just two hours in the fridge (or freezer if you can handle it), your hangover hat is perfectly chilled and can help you stop sweating, regulate your body temperature, and provide a cool relief to your pounding headache.

Do Not Disturb:

The last thing you want to do when you’re hungover is have to talk to other people. The hangover hat is a real-life “Do Not Disturb” sign that shows off your hungover mood and tells people to stay away (or else).
