Fall has come to my neck of the woods and with that come the cooler weather. Keeping your head warm can be necessary at times, but a hat isn't always the right choice. A cold weather headband will not only keep you warm, but won't leave you with a horrible case of hat hair. I was sent one from Dealzip Inc to review, which I managed to do before I had to shave my head and no longer had hair.
These headbands are a braided style, acrylic yarn based, knitted, and come in a variety of colors. Mine is fairly wide, as you can see in the picture, which means they cover part of your forehead and a good chunk of your ears depending on how you position it. I think they run a little small, mine fit my son better than me. I found it tight enough that after a few hours I'd develop a headache.
The thing that makes it stretchy is the elastic cording that's the base. While this obviously helps the product, the manufacturer used white elastic on my black headband, so you do gets bits of white showing through here in there. I have no idea if this is a problem with the other colors, but it did annoy me with my black one. I do like how the design looks, it kept my head nice and warm while allowing me to wear a bun, and allowed me to easily cover up the patches of hair loss I was experiencing. And for around $5 including shipping, they are a great deal. If I had planned on keeping my hair I would have bought one in red and one in purple, I may save them to my wish list for a few years down the road.
