It has been a life long dream of mine to find a hair band that actually stays in my hair. I have horrible hair. Think, coarse, poofy and generally unmanageable.
It has been a horror for as long as I can remember.
Because of this mass of brillo puff head, I have never EVER found a hair band that didn't slide off, slip around or pop off my head.
A few weeks ago I was shopping at the drug store and after a year long hiatus from hair band shopping, I decided to peruse the aisle to see if there was anything that I hadn't tried on the market.
I was surprised to find there was.
An elastic ribbon type hairband, about one centimetre thick, with little arrows of elastic woven through.
I was doubtful at first, but decided that $5 for two bands (black and dark brown) wasn't a bad price and if they didn't work it wouldn't hurt the wallet. So I bought them.
And I have totally fallen in love with them. I wear them often, even switching to using them as an elastic when I need to put my hair up quickly.
They. Are. Amazing.
A couple of days ago I noticed the black one I wear most often was missing from it's usual spot in the old soap dish now full of hair elastics. I searched a bit and then forgot about it with the weekend rush. Using the brown one works just fine too.
And today I saw this.
Need a closer loot? I did...
My wonderful husband, in an attempt to keep our Little Lady out of the computer cabinet, used it as a tie to hold the doors together.
I'm planning my revenge as we speak.
