Turban Scarf

What’s your favorite product / service? Describe it and why you enjoy it the most.

I love the L'Escarfe'® scarf for the fact that it's a simple way to stretch your fashion dollar. It's also a quick no-tie, frustration free scarf for busy women. The Turban Scarf because it makes a fashionable head covering for women dealing with hair loss. At this difficult time it is so important to look and feel good.
