Headbands

With short hair, I have limited hair-do options. I used to wear my hair in a braid all the time, or pulled back in a sleek pony. These days, though, I can't exactly do that. I have very naturally frizzy hair and when it goes un-blow-dried, ends up looking not too nice. Since having short hair, I've had a love of headbands! They are cute, classy and keep your hair out of your face--a huge pet peeve for me! I also love black shiny headbands, you know, the really thick ones that look great no matter what your hair looks like. Unfortunately a product of those fat headbands is a big gap between the top of the back (in the back) and your scalp. I don't have terribly voluminous hair, so mine tends to leave a large gap in that spot. There is now a solution to this problem! Goody made these new headbands called "OuchlessFlex" and I like to call them "head-shaped".
They have a slight grade in them so they are actually the shape of a normal head. Also, they don't hurt your head. One of the sides has a funny kink in it that basically takes all the pressure off the bone that sits right under your ear that usually throbs after you take off a headband (I should probably know the name of this bone since I'm learning all the medical terminology you can think of right now!!). I snagged my headband from target for like $3.99! I wish I had seen the tortoise shell colored one because I LOVE that "print". I've already worn my headband twice and I couldn't be happier. Both times I wore it were extended periods of time which tells me that they would be good for entire school or workdays! For just under 4 dollars how could you NOT get one!!

PS. I've been home this weekend-yay because its the first time since move in-and I had such a great time seeing the fam and enjoying all my hometown favorites! 9 hours is a heck of a long distance that I may have underestimated :(
